Original Comic Art Tips
Welcome to #221 of Original Comic Art Tips! An oddly early issue, I have to prepare the house for tonight’s dinner… Let’s see if Santa will bring some original art in his bag. Not rolled, please.
eBay: an Iron-Man page by Tuska was sold for $2,9k, a Champions page for $1,5k, the Star Wars page by Gene Day for $2k.
An early Strangers in Paradise page by Terry Moore went for $2k, a cover by Eric Powell for $1,5k, the Hagar Sunday by Dik Browne for $1k.
The very detailed Batman sketch by Jim Lee went for only $900, at the same time a very quick Batman on a slabbed comic made $1,1k and a Wolverine for $1,4k.
Last week I forgot to show you the results for the Amnesty charity auction. The Spider-Man illustration by Frank Miller went for €5,5k, the Wolverine by Frank Quitely for €2,5k, the Wolverine prelim by Simone Bianchi for €1,1k, the Hellboy pinup by Gabriele Dell'Otto for a little less.
The Silver Surfer by Alex Maleev for €750, the Elektra by Zezelij for €650.
The Dylan Dog page recreation by Marco Soldi went for a surprising €2,2k, an editorial illustration by Milo Manara for €850, a Batman pinup by Nicola Mari for €500.
Good performance for Disney artists, €600 for Chistè, €500 for Pastrovicchio and Intini.
Heritage Weekly Auction: the Spider-Girl cover by Ron Frenz went for almost $11k, probably due to the Carnage appearance. A Golden Age title page by Rafael Astarita for $5,6k, the Superman cover by Jon Bogdanove for $5k, this Batman page by John Calnan for $660 was a good buy.
Cornette De Saint Cyr: the only result to keep is the €115k paid for this Gaston page by Franquin.
The Peanuts daily at Clars Auctions was sold for $35k.
