The hit wasn’t a Jim sketch, but the Walt Simonson Thor illustration, sold for more than $21k.
Remember the Cable cover by Rob Liefeld sold on eBay in January for $4,5k and put for sale again for $17k after 2 days? (I wrote about it a few months ago on the blog) It was only a matter of waiting for the old auction page to expire, it was sold for a $10k Best Offer. what can I say… that’s why prices continue to go up.
