Original Comic Art Tips
Welcome to #240 of Original Comic Art Tips!
eBay: a Flash cover by Ross Andru was sold for a $15k Best Offer, a Namor cover by Alex Sanchez for a $5,2k B.O., a Moon Girl cover recreation by Moldoff for $3,1k, a William Stout illustration for $2,5k. $2k (B.O.) wasted on a Starlin Batman production cover.
$1,7k for a Venom/She-Hulk page by Tom Morgan, $1,6k for the X-Men page by Michael Collins, $1,5k for the Spider-Woman by Leialoha, $1,5k for a Spider-Man cover by Tony Fleecs, $1,4k for a Batman page by Gene Colan and a Thor page by Esad Ribic. $1,7k (B.O.) for a remarked Spidey comic by John Romita.
Mignola: a very nice 1994 Hellboy sketch was sold for a $1,8k Best Offer, very good deal compared to another HB sketch sold for $1,7k.
Neal Adams: you probably know that eBay has been flooded with Neal Adams original art and sketches, many are rushing to buy one at unimaginable prices (until a month ago). The only published piece was this Werewolf poster, sold for $16k, this Batman pinup was actually a good deal at $2k, a very nice Green Lantern tonal piece for $1,8k, a quicker GL bust for $900 (B.O.), a Catwoman for $1,450 (B.O.), a good $780 for this Wonder Woman, a nice tonal Wolvie for $750.
Slabbed profile sketches are the worst deals (they went for $200 not long ago) like $900 paid for a Batman, or $900 for a Green Lantern.
Heritage Weekly Auction: the Sgt. Fury splash by Dick Ayers went for $5,5k, the Superman title page by Curt Swan for $4,2k, the Dark Shadows daily by Ken Bald for $3,1k, a Y page by Pia Guerra for $1,5k.
Remember last year, when modern Thanos pages by Jim Starlin were still “cheap”, selling for $700-900? Not anymore as you can guess, this one went for $1,4k.
Catawiki: the Corto Maltese strip by Hugo Pratt went for €2,5k, a panel for La Linea by Cavandoli for €800, an Axa strip by Romero went for €500, a Martin Mystere cover by Alessandrini for €500, the Dylan Dog page by Stano for €400, the Micheluzzi page for €350.
The Peanuts strip at Weiss Auctions went for $72k.
Not bad, a Blueberry sketch by Giraud, sold at Millon for €350.
