eBay: after a few months the Batman commission by John Byrne was sold for $3,5k, the Namor page went for $750. An Hellboy page by Mike Mignola went for $1,900, Doomsday Clock original art by Gary Frank for $1,1k, the Micronauts page by Steve Ditko for $1,1k.
The nice Hulk/Spidey splash is still going.
Heritage Weekly: Antonio Prohias’ original art for Spy Vs Spy always goes for surprising prices, this time he’s the winner with $6,6k. The Legion page by Jim Shooter went for $3,3k, Legion by Keith Giffen for $2,8k. Prices for modern Garfield strips go up and down based on how funny is the gag, this one went for $1k.
The Spidey/Venom DPS by Ryan Stegman went for $550, probably sold for much more by the artist. A nice Cyberforce page by David Finch went for only $400, an Avengers page by Ron Wilson for $200.
$168 for 10 strips by Bob Lubbers is very good if you want to sell them on eBay…
Profiles In History: The Alex Raymond strips both went for the lower estimate, $400k for Flash Gordon and $75k for Jungle Jim. Still not bad.
