Biography:

Who is George Perez?

George Perez is an American comic book artist and writer whose seminal work with both DC and Marvel comics have helped shape a large part of the comic landscape since the 1970s.  He’s won the 1979 Eagle Award for his work on The Avengers and an Inkpot Award in 1983, as well as many Comics Buyer’s Guide Fan Awards for Favorite Artist, Favorite Penciler, and three consecutive years as their Favorite Cover Artist (1985 - 1987)

While many artists and writers have come and gone between the two major comic publishers, Perez worked on so many highly-anticipated limited series and large-scale adventures, that his work is considered par-excellence in the comic artist field.

With Marv Wolfman he co-created the New Teen Titans, which become DC top selling comic book competing directly with Marvel’s Uncanny X-Men in sales. Also worth mentioning that many of the characters in DC’s movies and TV shows were either created by him or influenced by his work. For example, Cyborg (from Justice League movie and Doom Patrol TV series), Raven & Starfire from TV’s Titans, Slade from Arrow,

Search Tips

Video Tutorial - Getting the Most out of Search

What is Guided Navigation?

Guided navigation is the ability to add and remove keywords and categorizations of items to filter your results. As you add these filters, they appear in the breadcrumb trail above the search results. You can remove any filter from the breadcrumb trail at any time.

How do I start my search?

Start your search as you've always done. From the home page, catalog home page, or search page, you can select a keyword and choose a coin type such as "Nickels" or "Barber Half Dollars", and then click "Search". Much of the time, this will be all you need!

How do I narrow my search?

You can add a filter in the left column, such as "Category", "Current Bid Range", "Reserve Status", and so on. Each time you make such a selection, the listing of results will become smaller, showing only those items that meet all the criteria you have selected. You can also enter one or more keywords, if that will help your search. Sometimes a new selection will open up new sub-selection possibilities.

How do I expand my search?

You can add or drop fields or keywords from your results at any time. Above the listing of results is a complete list of the filters you have selected. Click on any filter to remove it, and the page will refresh to show all items matching the new broader specifications.

I don't see the category (filter) I am looking for in the Guided Navigation?

The guided navigation section only lists things that contain results. To expand your list of categories, remove one or more criteria from your breadcrumb trail at the top of the results by clicking on it.

Targeting Your Search

Using "quotes" around your search phrase can help narrow the results to exactly what you are interested in. A search Henri Gaston Darien without quotes will return all results that contain either "Henri", "Gaston" or "Darien", in any order. A search for "Henri Gaston Darien" in quotes returns all results with the exact phrase Henri Gaston Darien, in that order.

Try your search first without any search words in the optional search box, then narrow it down.

This will produce more items, and once you see how the items are listed, you can narrow your search results with more accurate words.

Search ALL or search by Category?

If you're looking for only Impressionism and Modernism, choose that category from the drop-down list. If you're searching for items that span multiple categories, choose ALL from the drop-down.

Search just auctions, or just inventory, or both?

The search from our home page covers everything we have to offer, whether in auction or inventory. If you are only interested in either auctions or buy now items, select the appropriate check boxes in the search area ("Search within Inventory" or "Search within Auctions").

Think of the one search word that best describes the item you are looking for and search for that.

Maybe it's a name (like Darien), or a medium (oil), or a year (1870).

When using more than one search word, try using "OR" and "NOT".

When you use multiple words, the search engines will try to find items with all of those words in the description. Try using "OR" and "NOT". If you're interested in all items from 1870 and 1871, you can enter "1870 OR 1871". This would limit your search to just items with either of those two dates in the description. Or, if you are interested in something by Darien, but not done in Oil, then you might search for "Darien NOT Oil".

Avoid punctuation marks unless required.

Don't use commas, periods, dashes, etc., unless required - such as in a name like O'Doul.

Still Can't Find What You're Looking For?

Perhaps we don't have the item you are looking for now, but chances are we will soon. Add the particular item(s) you are looking for to our "My Wantlist" and you'll be notified as soon as it/they become available. If you would like further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us.
