This is one of those weeks when I hate myself for not following my own advice, many grea pieces went for low sums: I’d love to own a Werewolf page by Tom Sutton, this splash was perfect for only $660… that great Secret Wars page by Al Milgrom went for the same price. A 1945 Li’l Abner Sunday went for $450, the Robin page by John Byrne went for only $240, the Superman splash by Dave Taylor for $200, a Batman page by Garcia Lopez for $190 and that great Batman original by Cam Kennedy for $180.
