Welcome to #108 of Original Comic Art Tips! I had to wait for the Heritage website to come back online, this week… Let’s start with Auction Results.
eBay: A Wizard painted cover by Alex Ross was sold for $5k, an Iron-man cover by Bob Larkin for $5,100, an early Adam Hughes cover went for a Best Offer of $3,200. the DC Trinity illustration by Ed Benes went for $850, the Alex Toth cover prelim for $670, the Adam Hughes Stargirl pinup is for sale again with a lowered price.
Heritage Sunday: you probably heard that the Heritage website was down for several days at the beginning of the week. Let’s hope our credit card information is safe. The Sunday auction was prolonged until yesterday, prices stayed low, but I have to say there was nothing worth spending big money on…
The nice Batman pinup by Garcia Lopez went for $300, a Spider-Man fight page by Humberto Ramos was sold for less than $500, a Superman page by Delbo for $168, a Hulk DPS by Mark Bagley for $132, the usual Romita Jr page for $250.
Post-2000 Garfield dailies are dropping in value after some months of constant weekly auctions, this one went for $330. Harold Knerr Sunday strips are pretty rare, this is a late strip but $500 is a great price.
