Have you ever imagined a world with no hypothetical situations?

I finally got the last two epic purples in the mail yesterday i'll try and post pictures of the complete set this weekend when I have a free moment...I took out the crappy 2007/2009 masterpieces or whatever year they were from my masterpieces binder, and put in the new set instead the binder is powerful now, 92,93,94,95,96 and 2016 masterpieces, all killer no filler, only missing the two mirage cards from the 95 masterpieces otherwise all the sets are complete

i also reorganized my spider-man binder and put the new fleer set in there and took out some other less improtant stuff

felt good lol

congrats! yeah this was a really fun set to put together

yeah jusko did some art in the 93 set, its the highlight of the set I think, there is lots of other great artwork too, some duds but overall a nice set, it is generally viewed as the weakest of the 90's masterpieces sets though

I was asked to do the entire '93 set, but it was almost immediately after the '92 set and the deadline was just as crazy, so I turned it down. Even with all the different artists involved it barely made it in time.

I always wondered why they did that set with so many different artists, now I know it was due to schedule, the problem is always schedule isnt it? lol Im a project manager so I know how much of a pain schedule can be. Thanks for your insight on this, I remember thinking as a kid in 93 how much cooler the set would have been if you had done all the artwork funny how things work out sometimes, although I do still wish you did the 93 set all yourself so that much hasnt changed haha

I was finally able to take some pictures of this amazing set in its entirety dont mind my slippers in some of the pics lol

truly worth of the name masterpieces, Joe has outdone himself, if only Marvel would let him choose what costumes to use (3 paintings of cyclops, ALL with the x-visor really??)

the last page shows pics of my 92 mandarin sketch card, and adam warlock signature card, thanks to premium_substit for those
