FirstNationalBastard: Second, it's better to see an old, valuable comic like this actually used for something as opposed to sealed in mylar, or worse, locked in a slab of lucite so that it will never be touched by air or human hands again, but will retain its "collectible value".

eggrolls: zjoik: eggrolls: Great_Milenko: eggrolls: So if it's ok to trash someone else's art to make your own, we should let him make his next 'masterpiece' out of the Mona Lisa, John Lennon's handwritten lyrics, and the Constitution. It's fun to destroy something that's valuable to other people!Yes, because a comic book has the same cultural significance as any of these things...The Constitution clearly had immediate value and significance, but neither Lennon's notebook scribbles or DaVicni's work had much relevance or value in their own time frame. Cultural significance comes later. Often much later. If anybody knew what that would be when it happened, we'd still have copies of Shakespeare's 'Love's Labor Won' and 'Cardenio'.i'm not certain you're familiar with some of da vinci's work.Closer to them than you've ever been, I wager./12 yrs museum curator.
timujin: Both men gained their fame during their "own time frame," so your initial statement is incorrect or, at the least, very poorly put. Secondly, you apparently know nothing about da Vinci's career.
