A lot of Joe Kubert pages! – Original Comic Art Tips #208
Welcome to #208 of Original Comic Art Tips! Last week’s newsletter wasn’t delivered to 90 readers, it was an interesting issue here’s a link.
eBay: Red Sonja pages by John Buscema are always in demand, look at this one sold for $7,6k. Buscema again with an Avengers page sold for $6,6k, the Silver Surfer page by Sal went for almost $5k, a Captain America page for $1,7k.
A DC Girls painting by Chrissie Zullo went for $3k, a Star Wars page by Daniel Warren Johnson for $2k, a Wolverine commission by Chris Bachalo went too high at $2k, a Hulk cover sketch by John Romita for $2k.
The Mutts daily went for $3,8k, the Cul de Sac Sunday for $2,9k, the Zits Sunday for a pretty high $1,2k. The Usagi illustration by Sakai for $3,6, a Strangers in Paradise illustration by Terry Moore for $2,9k.
This week on eBay
Hero Initiative is selling a Preacher sketch by Steve Dillon.
Strips: a 1925 Bringing up Father.
Heritage Weekly Auction
Really a great week! Two pages of Gaston page prelims by Franquin, an ornate page by Gal from Metal Hurlant #1, a Belloy page by Uderzo, a Lucky Luke poster by Morris, Derib, XIII by Vance, a Durango illustration by Girod.
The best Joe Kubert covers in Weiss’ hands are all gone by now, but they still have many great interior pages, like this Unknown Soldier DPS, rare Batman art, Sgt. Rock title pages, a splash and two complete Punisher issues.
Many Golden Age complete stories as usual, this one stands out for quality, probably because the splash seems signed by Dan Barry.
Heritage International Signature Auction part 2 of 2
The best pieces were in the first half of the catalog… A Conan page by John Buscema, Starman by Ditko, Excalibur by Alan Davis, a Punisher cover by Tim Bradstreet Doomsday Clock original art by Gary Frank and a Harley page by Matteo Scalera.
Based on recent sales, this Spawn and Shadowhawk splash by Jim Valentino should go for a very high price.
This Thor page by Ron Frenz was offered every week on eBay until a couple of months ago and always went unsold, weird to find it again (and so soon) into a top auction.
1943 Mickey daily by Gottfredson, a nice illustration by Moebius.
Nate Sanders Auctions
See you next week!!
