Ok I don’t know anything about this auction house, yesterday I saw a banner on ComicArtFans and clicked it. The website is not helpful, looks like it’s their first auction. There are some pages, some sketches and some sketched books, many discrepancies between art, attribution and estimates. I don’t know how many persons noticed the CAF banner, but if you see something you like you can hope for low competition…
Many Neal Adams
sketches and sketched books, like this Batman
. Look at this X-Men hardcover
with two sketches: Havok and… Batman! :)
This is weird: A great Art Adams Man-Thing sketch
with an estimate of only $50-75… from the estimate I’d think of a print but it’s described as original art, then a Gambit sketch
by Adam Kubert
with a $250-300 estimate (just about right).
Another: there are many signed Frazetta
books, look at this one
, the description says: “Signed with original sketches by Frank Frazetta”, estimate $200. I can’t tell if the sketch is real or printed as a frontispiece, but the extremely low estimate would make me think of a signed book not a sketched book…
2: Is this a signed Frazetta book
? Look at the horse sketch, seems like the signature belongs to the drawing, so are both the sketch AND the signature real or are both the drawing AND the signature printed? We need somebody who owns the same book to understand.
Some sketches by “unidentified artists” Batman
by Walt Simonson
by Joe Quesada
by Jae Lee
and many others.
To close there are 2 unidentified sketches
by manga artists, one signature I can’t recognize (write me if you do), the other is a Lupin III
sketch by creator Monkey Punch.
Sketches by famous mangakas are usually worth a lot of money, not something to leave unidentified.
See you next week with a preview of the next ComicLink auction and the usual great original art!
