Original Comic Art Auction Results
eBay: $3k for a Wonder Woman page by George Perez, $1,9k for the Who’s Who Wonder Girl pinup, $2k seems a good price for this Spider-Man splash by Lee Weeks, $2,9k for the Omaha the Dancer page, $2,1k (Best Offer) for a Superman page by Jim Lee, $1,6k and $1,4k for the Spirit pages by Will Eisner, $1,6k for a set of vintage sketchbooks by Fred Ray.
$1,5k for a 1974 Tarzan pinup by Joe Kubert, $1,5k for a Star Wars page by Kevin Nowlan, $1,6k for a Mary Jane sketch card by John Romita, $750 for a Rhino card, $1,1k for an Azrael DPS by Barry Kitson, $1,1k for a Warlock page by Alan Davis, $1k for a G.I. Joe page by Vosburg, $800 for a page by Olivier Coipel.
Heritage Weekly Auction: $11k for the Spider-Man page by Ed Hannigan, $6,5k for the Hulk Vs. Thing page by Starlin, $4,8k for the Spider-Man splash by JRJR, $2,6k for the panel page. Five years ago Spidey pages by Romita Jr. were easy to find, priced at $7-800, then they almost disappeared from the market, with every rare page selling for more and more, now we are at $2,5k for mid level pages.
$4,3k for the Micronauts DPS and a Guardians page by Chaykin, $3,5k for a Rusty Riley daily, $3,1k for a Terry daily by Caniff, $4,5k paid for the newspaper tear sheet by Lionel Feininger.
Good deals for some Terry dailies: $900 and $800 and $700 for a very nice Tarzan page by John Buscema.
Catawiki: €1,6k for the Martin Mystere cover by Claudio Villa, €1,2k for the Will Eisner page, €1,1k seems a bit too much for this sketch by Moebius, €1k for a set of five Modesty Blaise strips by five different artists.
€800 for the Disney page by Bottaro, €600 for the Dylan Dog by Frezzato, €600 for a Paul Murry page. €550 for two Kriminal pages by Magnus, €400 for a Tex page by Breccia, €350 for a Tex page by Buzzelli, €350 for the Ranxerox sketch by Liberatore.
Look: this detailed Superman DPS by Claudio Castellini was sold for less than €400, no reserve auctions on Catawiki are very risky… A nice Thing page by Paul Ryan went for only €300, a ponytail Namor page by Isherwood for €250, a Thing page by Scott Kolins for even less.
ComicLink Auction: Very low prices, it was not a good idea selling the best pieces in another auction in January… Highest price paid was $10k for a Ghost Rider splash by Gary Kwapisz, big jump down for the silver medal, an Iron-Man page by Keith Giffen sold for $4,5k, a Star Wars page by Bob McLeod for $3,5k.
Highest price for Kirby animation drawings was for this Superhero proposal, sold for $2,5k, $2,2k for a Wolverine page by John Buscema, $1,4k for a Batman page by Don Newton, $1,4k for an Ultimate Spidey page by Bagley, $1k for a Star Wars page by Immonen.
Danny Miki has been inking on bluelines for the last few (?) years, then he puts high prices on his original art (in line with pencil+ink on the same board). Now the auction prices are going up accordingly, with this Wolverine DPS over Dale Keown art sold for $3,7k.
Plenty of good deals: you could buy a Milgrom/Sinnott page from W.C. Avengers #1 for $1,4k, or another one for $1,3k, a very nice page from #9 went for a very low $700. A Rik Levins Captain America splash for $1k. Unpublished but still a nice, vintage Star Wars cover by Milgrom went for $1k, a Namor page by Sal Buscema for less than $1k, probably Mark paid more than $750 when he commissioned this Hulk Vs. Thing to Sal…
Very low prices for some Dawn pinups by Linsner, this one went for $500. Less than $500 for a Batman page by Newton, $450 for a nice Conan page by Gil Kane, $300 for a Thor page by Pacheco.
Modern Spider-Man Sunday pages by Lee/Saviuk/Sinnott are often sold for fixed price at $1,5k, with a little patience you can find a nice one for $500.
