Comic link Focused Auction part 2 of 2
As usual, the second half of the catalog contains mostly commissions and sketches, but there are still a few Stan Lee signed covers: Captain America by Tim Sale, Civil War by Michael Turner, Avengers by Skottie Young. Nobody gave Stan this Venom cover by Philip Tan to sign, while at least Mark Texeira defaced his own Punisher original art.
See you next week!!
