more importantly, it's Elizabeth Braddock, aka PSYLOCKE as Captian Britian. Most don't know that she didn't start out Asian, or as an X-man....

I'll add scans of the inserts & sketches once I get them scanned in but I've got to say I loved the base set & the inserts. I loved seeing old favourites from the Marvel Swimsuit issues! Loved the couples' cards even though it was a bit weird that #9 was father/daughter and the rest are romantic pairings. Was wowed by the embossed cards; the embossing really highlighted the women nicely!
Have mixed feelings about the sketches. They are all well done but I guess I hoped to pull a few favourite characters: Storm, Elektra, Jean Grey and also hoped to pull certain artists: NAR (who doesn't hope for that) and Andy Price especially.

Here's some scans; the individual sketch cards will be on image shack eventually. If you can id the artist I don't know, lmk. Thanks.

Thanks for clearing that up Allison, cverdec and sittin9duck.

If I remember correctly Elizabeth Braddock is sister of Brian Braddock (Capt Britain) ?

Here's my breakdown. My boxes arrived just too late for OTBD.

Box 1:
Sketch - Lilith by Dave Simons


Swimsuit cards: 4
Embossed cards: 2
Embraced cards: 1

Box 2:
Sketch - Asteroth by Eduardo Ferrara


Swimsuit cards: 4
Embossed cards: 2
Embraced cards: 1

Although the sketches are much better than my Indy Heritage ones, I can't help feeling a tad disappointed compared with some of the other stunning sketches that have been pulled.

C'est la vie! Smile

My case arrived today and I have to say this is the best sketch based set to date. Rittenhouse and the artists have raised the bar so high now it's going to be tough to top. The insert sets are gorgeouse and I spent more time looking at the base cards than any set in recent memory. I did pretty good with my sketches, the Ryan Orosco Spider-Woman is especially superb, the colors jump right out and everything has a glossy finish.

Box 1- #4437

Daniel Cooney (502)- Scarlet Witch

Box 2- #4438

Alex Magno (320)- Storm

Box 3- #2434

Eddie Wagner (400)- ???

Box 4- #3424

Tess Fowler (449)- Black Cat

Box 5- #7565

Justin Vandemark (184)- Sue Storm

Box 6- #1445

Dave Fox (151)- ???

Box 7- #0432

Mark Spears (356)- Elektra and Daredevil

Box 8- #2433

Yildiray Cinar (200)- ???

Box 9- #1444

Ryan Orosco (150)- Spider Woman Smokin'

Box 10- #5428

Eduardo Ferrara (257)- Dagger

Box 11- #6436

Ricardo Ratton (200)- ???

Box 12- #6437

Lui Antonio (199)- ???















And the insert sets... those embossed cards were a royal pain to scan, they move around so easily that every time I closed the lid on the scanner they jumbled up a bit.

Clap My half case arrived today. I've only opened one box so far and, like many others, spent more time reading and looking at the base cards. Every card is a work of art.

I'll post up the breakdown and images when I've opened them all. The sketch I got so far I think is the same character as Incarnadine's - first bunch, third row at the end. Psylocke? Not sure, though.

Cool

My bad, yes Spiderwoman. I also got a sketch of her. I did get one of Psylocke as well Smile

Some of them I can't identify, let alone the artists. My camera is charging so I'll get images of mine in the morning. I'm pretty happy with my small haul Smile
