Welcome to #120 of Original Comic Art Tips!!
Original Comic art Auction Results:
eBay: a Superman Vs. He-Man page by Curt Swan went for $1,550. De gustibus non disputandum est, as the Romans said. A Shang-Chi page by Paul Gulacy went for $4k, a Spider-Man page by Rick Buckler went for $1,200, a Doomsday Clock page by Gary Frank for $750, I’d probably pay $250 for a Mike Mignola page like this one.
The Fantastic Four storyboard by Jack Kirby went for $900, a very good price for a full team image (if you consider Herbie part of the team…). The beautiful Kyle Baker painted cover went for only $900, a Lady Death DPS by Steven Hughes went for $600, the same price was enough to buy the Superfriends title splash by Ramona Fradon.
Catwoman pages by Jim Balent are rare but still affordable, this one went for $450 (there’s a new one on Comiclink). Odd Facts panels, when signed, are a good way to buy a cheap and well drawn piece by Will Eisner. Pencil only pages always go bad in online auctions, this Fantastic Four splash by Mark Bagley went for only $200.
