Ok, so I got something special here, and just another reason why Dino and the guys at VEI are so awesome!

When you have a booth at a comic con, they give you a sign with your name on it to hang on your booth. I asked Dino if I could get the Valiant Comics sign to auction off for CF. Of course, he said yes. I then had Dino, Josh Dysart and Atom Freeman sign AND remark the sign. (please note that there is a slight bend in the sign that happened at some point during the show)

All $$$$$ will be donated to fighting cystic fibrosis!


So I will be starting the auction for this one of a kind Valiant artifact right NOW!

The best way I can see shipping this is in a poster tube, (which I have to get) so I don't know the exact shipping price. It will be the cost of the tube, the shipping price. It will be added to the winning bid.


So if you are interested in this piece of Valiant History, either post a high bid in this thread or PM me. I'll run the auction until 7:00 PST on Sunday the 11th. Highest bid wins!


Highest bid: $75 (SJS4)

Here are some pics.

Here is the complete sign, I included the summer of Valiant book just so you can see how big it is. The Sumer of Valiant TPB is NOT part of the auction. ONLY the banner.

A close up of Dino's signature with his remark, a head sketch of Fred Pierce (my suggestion).
Image


Josh Dysart's sig and Harbinger bird
Image


and Atom's sig and Valiant symbol.
Image


And a few other pics to show it's legit.

Image

Then you will notice that the LBCC 2012 was added at the end.

Genius idea for a good cause.

Our company works several conventions a year. We just throw the booth signs away. This is cool!

bidding against magnus :hm: .
I would be interested but in the UK and Australia that hand sign is offensive.

I recall when Bill Clinton did that sign to some protesting Australian Farmers ~ so they spelted his car with stones and jumped the security barricades and attacked his car as he drove away.

From what I have seen, when used vulgarly, the hand gesture is usually inverted from the peace sign. The American peace sign involves the thumb pointing away from he who is making the peace sign. The Anglo-Australian vulgarity involves the thumb pointing towards the sign giver and is sometimes accompanied by a motion moving the hand up and down. I think it means *SQUEE* or *SQUEE* (which will both probably get caught by the filter - it means vagina).

I think it's basically the same as giving the middle finger

It means F off.

Apparently (possible urban myth) it comes from the 100 years war, where captured British soldiers would have those 2 fingers cut off before being released back to the British so they couldn't use a longbow. Would have been mostly Welshmen as they were the vast majority of longbowmen. The French would then taunt soldiers with those 2 fingers.

Thanks.
