Original Comic Art Tips
Welcome to #243 of Original Comic Art Tips!
eBay: the Thor page by Jack Kirby was sold for $19,4k, an Eerie painted cover by Sanjulian for $12k, a Titans cover by Brett Booth for a $5k Best Offer, a Daredevil cover by Alex Maleev for $2,5k, a color Joker commission by Neal Adams for $2k, a nice Superman DPS by Tony Harris went for a low $800 B.O.
The Stat to a Spidey cover by John Romita went for $3,5k.
An Avengers page by George Perez went for a pretty low $800, compare it to this very quick Robin sketch sold for $1,1k.
While I was looking at these pages a sponsored auction for a Spider-Man shaped potato chip was “suggested” to me… 😒
Heritage Weekly Auction: the Captain Marvel page by Milgrom went for a pretty high $15k, the cover prelim by Adam Hughes for $5k, a Flash page by Infantino for $3,1k, $2,9k and $2,2k for Ron Lim pages, $2k for a Barney Google daily.
Catawiki: the Catwoman sketch by Mazzucchelli went for €1k, Lo Sconosciuto by Magnus for €4,4k, the strip by Jacovitti for €900, a page by Micheluzzi for €400 and a Green Lantern DPS by Ed Benes for €700.
Millon: I somewhat discovered about this Batman themed auction only after the fact, and seems like I was not the only one, top Batman pieces went for incredibly low prices…
The highest priced piece (but still lower than its market price) was this Batman/Aliens painted cover by Bernie Wrightson, sold for €12k, a Swamp Thing page was sold for €9,5k (and this one seems more or less the right price), a LOTDK cover by Scott Hampton for €5,8k, a rare piece is this Batman sketch by Brian Bolland sold for €500.
And now I’ll start stabbing your heart: a Batman cover by Garcia Lopez was sold for €3k, a Batman action page by John Byrne for €2k, a beautiful, detailed (and faded) Batman DPS by Gil Kane for €1,5k, a vintage Batman illustration by Marshall Rogers for €900, and the two I’d really wanted to own were this Batgirl splash by Don Heck sold for €1,1k and this Batman and Robin pinup by Don Newton for €290 (!).
Then also a Wizard cover prelim by Alex Ross for €1,2k, a Batman splash painted by John Bolton for €1,1k, a page by Keith Giffen for €850, a JLA page by Dick Dillin for €450, and we end with Brian Bolland, a Batman cover prelim sold for €900 and a full figure sketch for €350.
Heritage Garfield Auction: $4,5k the highest price for a Sunday, $2,4k for a daily, several ‘80s dailies sold for under $500.
A Peanuts daily at Nate Sanders Auctions went for $35k.
