Catawiki: Lately I’ve started to look more regularly into Catawiki auctions, I’d like to do a weekly section here, but I don’t have much time left… I’m mostly looking there to find discounted Artist’s Editions and signed/numbered hardcovers, but the original art section is also growing in quality.
The best piece, lately, was an half page drawn by Franquin, sold for €15,5k, a Corto Maltese strip by Hugo Pratt for €4k, a Heavy Metal cover painted by Luis Rojo for €2,6k, a Masque Rouge page by Juillard for €2,6k, a Djinn pinup by Ana Miralles for €2,8k.
Three very nice Moebius sketched books went for affordable prices, this one for €400 and a set of two Blueberry books for €425.
a Scorpion pinup by Enrico Marini for €700, for the same price went a nice pinup by Alessandro Barbucci, an affordable Kull page by John Buscema for €450, a Ken Parker page by Ivo Milazzo went for €550.
Last week there was also a Charity auction, with Milo Manara (€3,7k), a Tex cover prelim by Laura Zuccheri (€1,4k), a Tex cover by Piccinelli (€1k) and a Secret War page by Gabriele Dell'Otto (€600).

Heritage Weekly: a Mike Kaluta cover went for $4,5k, a Sgt Fury page by Dick Ayers for the usual $2,6k, a funny 1994 Garfield daily for $1,5k.
A nice Lee Elias Invaders page went for $600, an oil painted Batman by Sanjulian for only $500. Tuska is not Kirby, and Power Man is not Spider-Man, but there are bronze age Marvel pages selling every week for $300.

ComicLink: the X-Men cover by J. Scott Campbell went for $9,5k, the Doom splash by John Byrne for $18k, the Frazetta pencil illustration for $23k.
David Finch probably made his record with a Batman cover sold for $13k, the Batman splash by Greg Capullo went for $10k, this great Capullo/McFarlane Spawn splash went for almost $8k, this one was nice too and went for “only” $3,5k. Speaking of Todd the Hulk cover went for $66k, a nice page for $5,8k, a couple Spidey pages for $11k.
Jim Lee prices, now that we’re used to the $10-20k for his charity pieces, seem pretty low, a nice Batman page went for less than $8k, the $5,5k of this great All Star page seems affordable now.
Take a note: the Lynn Varley original color guide to the Dark Knight page 46 from issue #2 went for $3,9k.
The cover to Amazing Spider-Man #90 by Kane & Romita was sold for $122k.
Prices for Art Adams original art are very different when you buy from Clink, look at this great Storm cover sold for less than $5k, then look at this (small) Spidey illustration sold for $1,2k (!).
Speaking of different prices, at least 30 covers drawn by top talent were sold with prices ranging from $400 to $1,800, expect to see most of them on sale again soon with 2-3-4x prices…. A $1,5k Flash cover by Alan Davis, a $750 Green Arrow cover and a $1,1k Avengers cover by Bryan Hitch
Speaking of good prices, this Rogue 2/3 splash by Andy Kubert went for $1,8k, a Spidey page by the Romitas for $1,9k, and a huge Ronin pinup by Frank Miller for $3k.
I rarely see Cloak & Dagger original art by Rick Leonardi, a nice page went for $2,1k.
