Keeping up with my interest in all things VALIANT, here are some original art pages from Valiant's WWF Battlemania #5.

These were not advertised as Steve Ditko original art pages. I'm glad I knew that they were!

09-12-05 Got a tip on some Legend of Zelda pages from a friend who attended SDCC this year. After a nice & quick deal with the artist I added these fine pages to my collection. I love anything associated with the early founding period of Valiant. These Legend of Zelda pages are no exception. I grew up in the Nintendo era which make these cross-collectables especially nice.
