Welcome to #267 of Original Comic Art Tips!
eBay: $3,1k for the Silver Surfer page by Ron Lim, $2,5k for the Two in One page by Tuska, $2,3k for the Doomsday Clock page by Gary Frank, $2k for a Wonder Woman page by Daniel Warren Johnson, $2k for a Batman Vs RIddler pinup by Neal Adams, $2k for the Sheena cover by Linsner, $1,8k for the Vampirella cover by Celina.
$1,7k for the Daredevil card art by Peach Momoko, $1,4k for the Hawkman cover painted by Andrew Robinson, $1,1k for a Green Lantern cover by Pat Gleason, $1k for the Spider-Man splash by Bagley.
A full figure, 9.6 Venom sketch cover by Frank Miller went for $1,7k.
Green Berets dailies by Kubert go for $300 at Weiss Auctions, on eBay somebody paid $1,3k for one. $1k seems a lot for 17 pages of Lobo color guides. Our friendly neighborhood forger was lucky, this week, and sold a fake Nightcrawler sketch by Dave Cockrum for $600. At the moment of writing a fake Spidey sketch by John Romita has 100 watchers and 30 clueless bids with two hours to go. This one is well done, if it wasn’t sold by a known forger I would maybe have believed it to be true.
$800 was a good price for the Conan DPS by Kwapisz, $200 a very good price for the Flash page by Paul Ryan.
Heritage Weekly Auction: $8,7k for the Fantastic Four page by John Romita, $6,6k for the Gen13 art by Campbell, $3,6k for the Spider-Girl cover by Olliffe, $3,3k for the Batman page by Golden, a Scrooge pinup by Don Rosa went pretty high at $1,9k, this Avengers page by Heck for $2k was a good deal.
Catawiki: a Tintin sketch by Hergé went for €2,7k, a cover by Keramidas for €1,6k, a Mickey Mouse page for €1,4k, the Manara sketch for €600, a Donald Duck drawn by Neal Adams for €300.
Mandarake: a Doraemon sketch was sold for $46k, a quick Ghost in the Shell sketch by Shirow for $6k. A very rare piece, two prelim pages from Uruseiyatsura by Rumiko Takahashi went for $7k.
