Welcome to #114 of Original Comic Art Tips!! A big update with many auctions, my eyes are aching…
Original Comic Art Auction Results:
eBay: I’m not surprised that the Spidey/Daredevil page by John Romita Jr. quickly sold last week, what surprises me is taht the seller accepted a $1,050 offer. A good catch.

Incredibly rare original art by Walt Simonson, a Spidey cover by Kane and Romita and one by Al Milgrom. In September I was surprised that this Spidey splash by Romita Jr. went for only $1,800. They were surprised too as it is for sale again.

Heritage Sunday Auction
So many auctions going this week, and the Sunday auction is the weakest ever, with only the usual pieces from the big lots we find every week. Nothing interesting to see…
Profiles In History
An incredible auction with dozens of top pieces. The big one is the historic cover to Frankenstein by Bernie Wrightson (go look at the starting price).
Many Barry Smith pieces like this Weapon X page.
Thor, complete Eternals #2 and its cover by Jack Kirby, a Fantastic Four issue by John Byrne. I’d like to buy an Iron-Man page by John Romita Jr. but I’ve never seen one for sale, if you want to buy this issue think of me when selling pages, the starting price is great…
Various Peanuts strips
3 different auction houses are auctioning Peanuts strips.
Swann is auctioning the above Peanuts strip and many other pieces, mostly classic illustration. As usual I’ll only link to the original comic art pieces and leave the illustration part out.
There are also some 1903 George Herriman Sunday strips drawn in a unrecognizable early style.
Whew! This time it was hard… 😅 See you next week!!
