Garney, Byrne, Timm! Original Comic Art Tips #187
Welcome to #187 of Original Comic Art Tips! a Byrne page on eBay is ending really soon…
eBay: the cover to Flash #209 by Dick Giordano was sold for $13,2k, an illustration by Frank Frazetta for $7k, an Excalibur page by Alan Davis for $3,5k, $4k seems too much for this Conan page by John Buscema.
Heritage Weekly Auction: Sgt. Fury pages by Dick Ayers continue their growth after a few months of absence from HA. A page went for $6,6k.
X-Men Unlimited pages were the entry point for ‘90s X-Men original art, this page by Richard Bennett now went for $3,3k. Speaking of Bennett I remember he mostly worked from layouts at Wildstorm, so I don’t know if this Wildcats page that went for $2,2k was from Jim Lee pencils or layouts.
Catawiki Auctions: a Corto strip by Pratt went for €2,6k, a page by Manara for €2k, a Natacha page by Walthery for €1,4k, a cover by Daniel Torres for €1,2k, the big illustration by Jacovitti for €900, a page prelim by Will Eisner for €350.
This week on eBay
Marvel: the page from Iron-Man #1 by Gene Colan is still going at $14k, the best piece of the week is ending TONIGHT, a Spider-Man page by John Byrne. On another page from the same issue, Capt. Marvel is playing with a suppository.
A quick, nice Galactus sketch by John Romita and a Captain America page by John Jr. a Fantastic Four commission by Rich Buckler, no Hulk but a good page by Sal Buscema, a W.C. Avengers title splash by Dave Ross, Micronauts original art by Pat Broderick.
This seller has several Conan pages by John Buscema (advertised as “rare first print”…) here’s the best one, but look at the others.
A rare detailed Thor head sketch by Walt Simonson, I think it comes from a San Diego dinner, they were at $500 (not anymore).
DC: a really nice Harley Quinn pinup by Bruce Timm. Can’t tell from the pic if it’s original art or a print. I like this JLA splash by Ron Garney, Wonder Woman by Don Heck, a Challengers cover by Rich Buckler, a Superman Commission by Jerry Ordway, a Superman page by Doug Mahnke, Spectre by Breyfogle.
If you were searching for a grandma drawn by Todd McFarlane you’re lucky.
Hero Initiative: a Green Arrow illustration by Phil Hester, with sound effects drawn by Kevin Smith. A very nice illustration by Kim Jung Gi, Batgirl by Tony Daniel, Cable/Deadpool by Matthew Clark/Karl Moline.
