Original Comic Art Tips
Welcome to #263 of Original Comic Art Tips!
eBay: $6,5k for the Spider-Man page by Mark Bagley, $3,4k for the Sgt. Rock DPS by Russ Heath, $3,3k for the early Mage page by Wagner, $3,5k for the Fantastic Four page by Buscema, $2,8k for the Spidey page by Ross Andru, $2,5k for a TMNT movie adaptation page.
$3,7k (Best Offer) for a 1960 DC page by Sekowsky, a Tank Girl page by Jaime Hewlett sold last week for $2k (which was a good deal) now for sale again for $9k (which is too much).
$1,8k for a nice Conan page by John Buscema, $2,5k for a Cyberfrog splash by VanSciver, $2,5k for a title page by Grandenetti/Wood, a sketched Kim Jung Gi book for $1k (BO).
Somebody paid $4k for a Sandman page prelim by Kristiansen, I wonder if they thought they were buying the published page.
Somebody is buying all of the (usually very cheap) Sonic pages available for high prices, this one for $1k.
After last week’s newsletter I received a lot of messages (thanks!) informing me that the Carlos Pacheco cover was probably a copy, as revealed by the original inker. Zooming in it’s not very clear, I don’t see pencil marks or whiteout, so it probably is a vintage copy that was sold for $2,7k. I hope the buyer is able to recognize an original piece from a copy with the paper in hand.
Heritage Weekly Auction: $23k for the Love & Rockets page by Jaime Hernandez, $9k for the Hulk page and $3k for the Captain America page by Sal Buscema, $6,6k for the Hulk page by Keown, $5,5k for the Spidey page by Byrne, $3,8k for a Crow cover by Alex Maleev.
$3,3k for the X-Men #130 color guides, $1,5k for the Amazing Spidey #88 cover color guide, a little less for the production print for the Hulk #180 cover.
Catawiki: a Corto strip by Hugo Pratt went for €2,5k, a pinup by Rojo for €600, a Asso di Picche page by Gimenez for €500.
Comiclink Auction: $10k for the Daredevil page by JRJR, $7,5k for the X-Men page by Andy Kubert, $6,5k for the Phoenix cover by J. Scott Campbell, $6,5k is not a bad deal on an X-Factor page by Simonson.
Last week I told you to keep an eye on the Bruce Timm pieces, the last Batman headsketches posted on Moy’s website had a $1,8k price tag, well this one instead went for $800, the Harley sketch for $750, instead of $1,250, while a full figure Batman went for $2,6k.
Exactly the opposite happens for Art Adams commissions, they were at $1,5k last week, this Magneto went for $2k and this Poison Ivy for $1,9k.
Some unexplainably high prices, like this Al Rio pinup sold for $2,5k, a Cyberforce page by David Finch for $2k, a Gen13 page by Gary Frank for $2k. I don’t want to believe these went high for the half naked superheroines… maybe second tier Image pages are growing?
Time for the thousand low priced pieces, the most interesting were a Hulk transformation page by Ron Wilson for $800, a DC Trinity pinup by Ivan Reis for $750, an Avengers DPS by Leinil Yu for $700, Y pages by Pia Guerra for $700 and $500, a DC cover by Riley Rossmo for $500, the Demon by Byrne for $500, Spidey by Simone Bianchi for $500.
Two Teen Titans pages by George Perez sold at MyComicShop, $2,3k and $1,7k.
A Gaston page by Franquin for €38k and an Asterix sketch by Uderzo for €3,5k at Fauve.

Heritage Harlan Ellison Collection
I wasn’t expecting so much comic art in this auction, Harlan was a real collector, there are less covers and pages for Ellison written books and comics than classic DC/Marvel pieces. Maybe some pieces will go lower than market value for being buried inside a science fiction auction.
We start with three Watchmen pages, look at this one. Some very rare to find JLI pages and a cover by Kevin Maguire, look at this Swamp Thing page by Wrightson, a Doom Patrol cover by Byrne, a great Fantastic Four page by Kirby, three Wolverine pages by Frank Miller, a Dr. Strange cover by Sam Kieth, and really MANY more.
