Original Comic Art Tips
Welcome to #203 of Original Comic Art Tips! Auctions are slowly starting again with the end of summer.
Original Comic Art Auction Results:
eBay: that sketch by Barry Smith was sold for an impressive $2,5k, a Flamingo strip by Matt Baker for $4k, an Hellboy half splash by Mignola for $4k.
This Excalibur page by Joe Madureira was offered every week on eBay for years. Unsold at $1,2k, then unsold at $1,6k, was finally sold for $1,7k. I’m glad I will not see it again for a while. A very bad and fake “Bob KaneBatman drawing was sold for $1,7k.
A Venom cover by Mike Mayhew was sold for a Best Offer lower than $13k (but probably still very high), a nice Captain America page by Tuska for an offer lower than $1,250. Not that great, this Conan splash by John Buscema went for less than $2k.
Heritage Weekly Auction: Dick Ayers wins with the usual $3,8k paid, this time, for a Giant Man page. This portfolio plate art by Mike Nasser went also for $3,8, if you can explain this price to me please hit reply…
$3,8 was also the price for this Alex Schomburg Golden Age page.
A 1978 Archie cover by Dan De Carlo makes $2k, probably due to the swimsuit girls. A Glynis Oliver color guide to the iconic Daredevil page by Frank Miller makes $1,4k.
Catawiki: 2 pages by Victor de la Fuente were sold for €1,1k, the illustration by Dany for a pretty low €650, the Alan Ford page by Magnus for €550.
