Welcome! This is probably the time It took me longer to send this newsletter since the beginning, but I was in Sicily for a convention for the entire week and was not really into staying at the hotel to write this…
Walked off a plane at lunch time and I’m sending this at 10 in the evening, more than two days late than the usual Friday night. Still this is a really great issue with many cool things to see!

eBay: $5,1k for the Carol Day strip, $4,8k (Best Offer) for a Death page by Mark Buckingham. Often Buckingham pages from the second Death mini are wrongly credited to Chris Bachalo, who only penciled the first and half of the second issue, while Bucky did pencils/inks on the rest of the 3 issue mini, mimicking Bachalo’s style.
