Heritage Weekly Auction
The auction starts with a tablecloth jam sketch by the artists at the Lake Como convention, with proceeds going to charity. Then, most of the artists donated a piece to the convention, top piece (but I’m not a big fan of the result) is a Druuna pinup by Serpieri inked by Frank Cho, then I really like this Francine illustration by Terry Moore and this Image cover by Matteo Scalera, there’s a Shaolin Cowboy illustration by Geof Darrow painted by Eric Powell, a Kull cover painted by Mark Brooks and a Space Girl pinup by Charest.
Then the regular auction with some top pieces, like this Spider-Man cover by Al Milgrom, a Spidey splash by Ross Andru, a Batman cover by Aparo, a Silver Surfer splash by Buscema, an EC splash by Ingels, and a Jack Kirby X-Men page.
