Fake Wizard Spawn Sketches, Not By Todd McFarlane And Whilce Portacio


There have been a rash of very poorly executed "rough drafts" of the Wizard Magazine  #205 cover by Whilce Portacio and Todd McFarlane, with equally offensively bad McFarlane signatures on eBay.

Firstly "sickbreed" sells one for $99.

So why not relist another one for a minimum for $149.99

Then "bobbybacon2336" sells one for $25.

Then "t_lucky817" sells another for $78.

Sadly, "lycanthrope1987" only got $8.

"krisjenarummel" is doing better with bids of $37.99 and time to go.

Wow, for comic book professionals, Todd McFarlane and Whilce Portacio sure had to go through a lot of rough drafts on this piece.

Is it too convenient that Whilce just put the original up for sale with a bunch of other stuff in order to help family in the Phillipines, providing a pristine scan of the art in the process?

One of the sellers stated that he bought the piece from a shop in Keller, TX, but wouldn't get any more specific. Of course, he wasn't provided with a Certificate of Authenticity…

Buyer beware, folks.
