This week on eBay
Greg Capullo - Spawn Original Comic Art
Greg Capullo - Spawn Original Comic Art
Very long ebay section, I had to edit out some of links. DC comic art: rare Jim Balent Catwoman half-splash, nice Joe Giella Batman and Robin commission signed by Julie Schwartz, a Batman page and a Joker commission by David Finch, cheap Batman illustration by David Lapham, last week’s unsold Batman by Erik Larsen with a $100 price reduction, a Demon page by John Byrne and Superman comic art by Rich Buckler.
I like a lot this Wonder Woman page by Don Heck, then a WW splash by Jose Delbo and Supergirl art by Mike Sekowsky.
Marvel: a 1964 Giant-Man page by Carl Burgos for $1k, good price for a little piece of history. One of our members is selling many nice pieces this week, like this X-Men DPS by John Romita Jr., Thor original art by Olivier Coipel, a Cable semi-splash by Jim Cheung and an Avengers page by Stuart Immonen.
Ron Lim has a classic Venom page and an Infinity Finale, Ron Garney X-Men page, Power-Man by Marie Severin, Spider-Man and The Thing by Mike Wieringo and a Romita Jr/Layton Tony Stark page. With prices for classic JR-JR art growing, this may be the opportunity to buy something cheap.
Great Spawn/Angela original art by Greg Capullo, Shade page by Chris Bachalo, a Warlord splash by Mike Grell.
Classic Witchblade cover art by Michael Turner with a high price, probably fishing for offers. A Preacher page, a very nice Eduardo Risso illustration and Ghita by Frank Thorne.

Vermot et Associés
Hugo Pratt - Corto Maltese Original Comic Art
Hugo Pratt - Corto Maltese Original Comic Art
Vermot has an auction mostly made of sketched books, all signed to a Daniel, who had a great collection of multiple sketches by the greatest french comic artists. Most of their published work is priced too high for 99% of collectors so here’s an opportunity to add a little something to collections. Some of the top pieces are a nice Corto Maltese sketch by Hugo Pratt, a quick and nice Blueberry sketch by Gir/Moebius, very nice Mortimer sketch by Jacobs, a rare Laverdure by Jije, a quick Bilal and a quick Peyo.
An early sexy pinup by Enrico Marini and a nice sexy pinup by Crisse.
See you next week with another Original Comic Art Tips newsletter and lots of great art!
