Original Comic Art Tips
Welcome to #198 of Original Comic Art Tips! Big auctions are paused, but there are a few very nice pieces to see and many interesting results.
Original Comic Art Auction Results:
eBay: suddenly Jim Lee posted on eBay the last 3 sketches for his “60 sketches in 60 days” charity fundraising. #58 of 60 is Blight with Batman, sold for $7,1k, #59 Jace Fox Batman (I don’t know what I’m writing about…) was sold for $8,1k, #60 is going and you’ll find it in the eBay section.
Again from Jim Lee, a Ninja Scroll cover was sold for a Best Offer lower than $3,3k, the Alpha Flight page for $2k.
The Namor cover by Sal Buscema went for $15,1k, a Superman cover by Ross Andru for a B.O. lower than $5k, the ‘90s style Superman jam for $3,5k, a sketch page by Frazetta for $2,8k, a Batman splash by Gene Colan for $2,2k.
If you were here one year ago you’ll probably remember the two Shadowhawk splashes by Jim Valentino sold in June 2020 for $400 each, then one of them was sold again in September for $10k (here I uploaded the 3 screenshots dug out of my archives).
Now, one year later, two different early Shadowhawk splashes were posted for low prices and quickly sold (damn…) by the same clueless seller.
This one for $925 and the second one for $800. And they say that there’s not good art to buy on eBay anymore…

Fury page by Dick Ayers made the usual $7,8k, an illustration by Mark Schulz went for $6,6k, the Mr. Miracle page by Kirby for $4,8k, the Kamandi page $3,6k.
The Batman page by John Buscema for $3,3k, Howard the Duck by Colan for $3,1k, the Secret War page by Dell'Otto for $1,9k, a Superman page by Swan for a big $2,9k.

Can somebody explain to me why this Carol Day strip was sold for $3,1k?

The most interesting sale is the bad performance of this Spidey page by Erik Larsen, sold for “only” $14k, an Invincible cover by Ryan Ottley went for $5k, a rare Y: The Last Man page by Pia Guerra for $2k.
High prices for this Youngblood page ($3k+) and this Captain America page by Rob Liefeld, not the greatest Spawn page, but, drawn by McFarlane it went for $3k.
The NFT cover by Jae Lee went for $4k, this wrongly credited Teen Titans DPS by Rick Leonardi went for less than $400, Batman Adventures pages still growing, it’s hard to find Alex Ross sketches for $600.
