Original Comic Art Tips
Welcome to #75 of Original Comic Art Tips, be prepared for a very long newsletter, lots of results and many auctions coming up this week!
Comic Art auction results.
Ebay: the Wolverine original art by Marc Silvestri went for $2,400, the Avengers page by Jack Kirby ended, but was sold outside Ebay, the Amanda Conner cover art went for $1,100 and the 1951 Gasoline Alley daily went for $850.
Comiclink: the title splash to Fantastic Four #112 by John Buscema went for $43k, An end price of $40k+ until yesterday was usually the price for Buscema’s original cover art (but this is an exceptional splash). A John Byrne Fantastic Four page went for $17k. For a John Romita Jr. early 80’s Spiderman cover $21k, is a pretty high price, while a really high price is 21k for a 2004 cover (yes it’s also a great wraparound cover). A nice Spider-Man page ended for only $475. The Punisher sketch By Romita Sr. went for $1,550 (was sold on Ebay for $1,080 last December).
Based on the price list on Albert Moy‘s website, a bust commission without background by Jim Lee is priced at $7k. This Joker (with background) went for $4k.
If you have an Alan Davis piece to sell give it to Heritage: this Excalibur page went for only $1,250, the right price if you asked me just before last summer’s Davis craze.
This Richard Corben cover was sold for $52k, it went for $48k on Heritage’s November auction. Considering a 10% seller’s fee (am I right?) the owner lost a little bit of money by flipping it.
Now, for the regrets department, when I was browsing the lots I considered putting a $700 bid on this Lee Bermejo splash from 100 Bullets. It was sold for less than $400…
Happier collectors bought a wraparound Superman cover by Andru/Giordano for $2,600, a Frank Cho jungle painting and a Batman DPS by Paul Gulacy for $850, a Bryan Hitch Green Arrow cover for $475, a Wonder Woman illustration by Garcia Lopez for $350.
A Superman splash by Jim Lee for $1,900 isn’t bad, $950 were enough for this Preacher page by Steve Dillon and for this Thor page by John Buscema.
Heritage Sunday: the original cover art by Humberto Ramos went for $5,000, the World’s Finest cover by Ernie Chan for $4,500, the Teen Titans page by George Perez for $3,300, the Wolverine original art by John Buscema for $2,000.
Dick Ayers’ art had a good week in the comic art world, the Avengers #1 cover recreation went for $2,000, the Sgt Fury #90 title page for $2,200, the Rawhide Kid #36 original art for $1,200 and the Western Gunfighters splash for $1,400.
Low prices for Alan Davis this week, a nice X-Men page went for $350. A very nice Batman page by Sean Philips ended for $240.
