Original Comic Art Auction Results
Last Saturday I was in a hurry to send the newsletter, so I looked too quickly at the Batman page by Kelley Jones. It seemed like original art and the high price reinforced this. if I had also looked at the second image, I would have realized that that was a flyer, printed to advertise the Graphitti Designs’ Artist’s Edition.
I guess he fooled many other people too, because the final price came to $15k, hope the buyer sends it back.
$6k for the Popeye daily by Segar, $5k for a Peanuts illustration, What do you think? Original or not? Not so sure this time. $3,7k for the Steel page by Bogdanove, sold just two months ago on HA for $600 more… not a great move.
$3,5k for the Captain America page by Sal Buscema, $3k for a nice page by Daniel Clowes, $2,5k for a Superman cover by Tyler Kirkham.
$1,6k for a Batman commission by Norm Breyfogle, $1,9k for a 1985 TMNT pinup by Eastman, $1,8k (Best Offer) for a Spider-Man splash by Mark Bagley, $1,2k (B.O.) for a full team JLA splash by Rick Leonardi.
