Original Comic Art Tips
Here we are with #15 of Original Comic Art Tips! Another long newsletter, with many auctions and a new blog post.
Original Comic Art Auction Results:
eBay: an Umbrella Academy pinup by Gabriel Ba went for $3,100, the Byrne Fantastic Four page went for $2,600, the Iron Fist page for $800, and a Superman page for $2,200. Chris Samnee earned $6,250 with his ten Batman Inktober sketches. I can’t tell why this Robin went for $880… this great Batman/Robin went for $850, the other one for $800 and my favorite Batman for $700.
The TWD back cover by Charlie Adlard and the Jay Anacleto cover both went for $800.
Heritage Sunday: I noticed that lately there’s more art in the bargain section. The big surprise is this STAT of a Daredevil splash sold for almost $4,000… I don’t know what to think, it’s not original art but at least it’s not one of those xerox copies sold on eBay.
A Pogo daily went for $2,900, the Storm pinup by Romita Sr. for $2,700, the Conan pinup by John Buscema for $1,900.
A BPRD cover by Ryan Sook went for only $660 and that nice Huntress pinup for $150. Batman/Superman original art by George Tuska went for less than $400, Flash by Carmine Infantino for $330, a Superman splash by Paul Ryan for $150.
Excalibur: an X-Men page by Alan Davis was sold for 200GBP, a Superman Vs. Doomsday (from 1998) page by Dan Jurgens went for 150GBP.

Neal Adams - Batman #251 Original Cover Art

A to Z: A of Neal Adams, with the cover to Batman #251. Carl Barks with a rare Uncle Scrooge page and a rare cover, a Captain America cover by Sal Buscema.
A Spidey page by Steve Ditko.
I wonder if this complete 2011 comic by Ditko comes from his heirs, I’m sure they found hundreds of pages in his studio…
Thun'Da original art by Frazetta, Watchmen by Gibbons, Batman by Finger/Kane. The usual big selection of Kirby pages, like the full Fantastic Four Annual #2, here’s the splash. A Silver Surfer and an Hulk pinup would also look great on a wall.
