Original Comic Art Tips
Welcome to #187 of Original Comic Art Tips! a Byrne page on eBay is ending really soon…
eBay: the cover to Flash #209 by Dick Giordano was sold for $13,2k, an illustration by Frank Frazetta for $7k, an Excalibur page by Alan Davis for $3,5k, $4k seems too much for this Conan page by John Buscema.
A cover prelim by Mike Mayhew went for $1,5k, a nice Hulk page by Sal Buscema for a $750 Best Offer.
Heritage Weekly Auction: Sgt. Fury pages by Dick Ayers continue their growth after a few months of absence from HA. A page went for $6,6k.
X-Men Unlimited pages were the entry point for ‘90s X-Men original art, this page by Richard Bennett now went for $3,3k. Speaking of Bennett I remember he mostly worked from layouts at Wildstorm, so I don’t know if this Wildcats page that went for $2,2k was from Jim Lee pencils or layouts.
The Buckler Fantastic Four page went for $2,9k, the Swamp Thing page by Veitch for $2,1k, the Daredevil by Ditko for $2k.
Are non-Spider-Man, Marvel pages by Erik Larsen going up too? Juliet Jones dailies by Stan Drake go for $300 until you get an exceptional one that sells for $1,7k.
Catawiki Auctions: a Corto strip by Pratt went for €2,6k, a page by Manara for €2k, a Natacha page by Walthery for €1,4k, a cover by Daniel Torres for €1,2k, the big illustration by Jacovitti for €900, a page prelim by Will Eisner for €350.
Nate Sanders: The two early Peanuts dailies were sold for $80k and $66k. Not the best Terry & the Pirates daily, but $375 for a Caniff is still a good deal.
