A bagful of comic art for you! 🎅 Original Comic Art Tips #221
Welcome to #221 of Original Comic Art Tips! An oddly early issue, I have to prepare the house for tonight’s dinner… Let’s see if Santa will bring some original art in his bag. Not rolled, please.
Last week I forgot to show you the results for the Amnesty charity auction. The Spider-Man illustration by Frank Miller went for €5,5k, the Wolverine by Frank Quitely for €2,5k, the Wolverine prelim by Simone Bianchi for €1,1k, the Hellboy pinup by Gabriele Dell’Otto for a little less.
Heritage Weekly Auction: the Spider-Girl cover by Ron Frenz went for almost $11k, probably due to the Carnage appearance. A Golden Age title page by Rafael Astarita for $5,6k, the Superman cover by Jon Bogdanove for $5k, this Batman page by John Calnan for $660 was a good buy.
Cornette De Saint Cyr: the only result to keep is the €115k paid for this Gaston page by Franquin.
The Peanuts daily at Clars Auctions was sold for $35k.
