Original Comic Art Tips
Welcome to #191 of Original Comic Art Tips!
eBay: the Spider-Man page by John Romita Jr. was sold for $3,6k, the X-Men page by Jim Lee for $6k, a Namor page by John Buscema for $2,4k and a Conan page for $1k, the Invincible splash by Ryan Ottley for $2k and an X-Force cover by Pepe Larraz for $1k.
Heritage Weekly Auction: What was a Spider-Man page by Erik Larsen doing on the weekly auction? It was there to do a $48k record price for panel pages! We are often talking about the incredibly fast growth for Spider-Man original art by Larsen, it’s time for a recap (courtesy of the Heritage archives…). We start from too far, from the remote past of AUGUST 2018… when a Spidey Vs. Doc. Doom page went for just $6,6k. Then we go to May 2019, when a Spidey Vs. Mysterio splash went for $15,6k. The next day, in the tradition of panel pages worth less than splashes, this Spidey/Doc. Ock/Hulk page was sold for $10k. Another big step for humanity (the hated March 2020), this cool interior page went for $26k. Six months later (Sept. 2020) this Spidey/Ghost Rider half splash made $36k. Just one month ago (Apr. 2021) a splash went over $50k. I purposedly left behind the record bearer, the cover to Amazing #340, sold in March 2020 for $50,4k… In just a year a classic cover was almost reached in price by a splash and an interior page. Let’s see what will happen with the splash being auctioned next week on ComicLink (see link in the CL section below)
In other news there were many high prices on HA, last Monday, here’s a link to see them all.
Catawiki: I really can’t say why this regular Ultimate Spidey page by Mark Bagley went for €1k. The Milady illustration by Magnus for €1k, the 7 Dwarfs page by Nino Pagot for €700, the Walt Disney signature for €2k.
Little Nemo Disney Auction: many unsold lots and a few high prices, like the Barks cover prelim sold for €3,4k (before a 23% B.P.), the Mottura painting sold for €2,2k, and the Bip Bip page by Scarpa, sold for €2,7k.
