Original Print Art

When it comes to art and especially comic books I'm an "analog" pen & paper type of person.  New comics being drawn on digital tablets just doesn't do it for me, there's no value in it, there's no physical item and as a collector there's nothing to possess.  Recently an original page from X-Men issue #113 from 1978 with pencils by John Byrne, inks by Terry Austin and written by Chris Claremont (the 3 best guys in the biz during that time) sold on eBay for a whopping $21,667.00.  Call me old or whatever but people who spend money on art can afford to be old and probably have better 401K's and retirement plans than those who put there stock into mp3's and digital images.
