I've obsessed over this page for seven years. I've begged, pleaded, cajoled, wept, whined, implored, bribed... nothing... crickets... Then this morning the sun came out, the songbirds sang, and I thought to myself, "this is the day." And it was. And it is. This page has been my number one grail for the seven years I knew about its existence and location. Here it is. I can quit now.

Beautiful page, Redondo was such a master--and this is a spectacular example of his work. Congrats on achieving your grail--the full story behind how you got the page must be a good one!

That is a sweet splash--congrats! To me, shades of Neal Adams' influence as well.

I have no clue who Black Orchid is, and I'm relatively unfamiliar with Redondo's work; but there is no denying this a beautiful page. I know what it's like to finally add a long desired piece to one's collection, so I wish you a hearty congratulations for securing this lovely personal grail, and thanks for sharing!

As Aidan Lacy already posted my catch phrase (It's true that every time a comic art collector acquires a long sought grail, you hear a bell, and an angel gets his wings), I'll just add: Long-sought grail + Nestor Redondo + gorgeous example of the great man's work + home at last in Roger's collection that loves it most = why we love this hobby!
