Welcome to #110 of Original Comic Art Tips! Lucca comics was more hectic than usual, I only managed to see the John Buscema Exhibition (and will do a blog post this weekend). If one of you has pictures from the other exhibitions I’d like to see them!
Original Comic Art Auction Results:
Somebody sold a lot of four pages: Batman by Irv Novick, Spider-Man, Captain America and Hulk by Sal Buscema for $2,300. The buyer is probably very happy now.
ComicLink: the auction ended last night, as usual some good prices and many bargains. The Ms. Marvel splash by Cockrum went for $3,300, the Catwoman commission by Jim Lee went for more than $6k. I’d buy a published page with that sum. The Joker by Bermejo was sold for $2,300.
Dick Tracy strips with dead bodies always go for top prices, this one went for $2,800. A 1976 Avengers page by George Perez went for $2,600, one from 1998 for only $600. Heritage sold hudreds of Warren Kremer Richie Rich stories for very low prices, this one instead went for $1,400.
An early X-Men page by Jim Lee for $1,400.
Happy new owners for a $500 Avengers page by Jerry Ordway, Avengers original art by Mark Bagley for $400, a Green Lantern splash by Carlos Pacheco for $400, a Swan/Anderson Superman half splash for $370 and a Doc Ock splash by Olliffe/Williamson for $280.

Cambi Aste is doing something almost new. As you can see from the picture I took to an ad on today’s newspaper they’re having an auction mixing contemporary art and comic art (fumetti in Italian…).
