Welcome to the third Original Comic Art Tips Newsletter, the big news of last week was the record price set for an Asterix original cover, Drouot sold two pieces for a total of 2.6 million Euros with an estimated price of 200.000 Euros.

Let’s look at last week results: as predicted John Buscema’s Daredevil page went for an affordable $665 and Alan Davis’ Excalibur went for a respectable $1.493. The Witchblade page by Michael Turner sold for $826, that means MT’s originals are so sought after that even his less appealing artwork is going up in price…
This week on eBay.
Todd McFarlane Spiderman original art

There’s a Todd McFarlane Spiderman #301 page in Hawaii!
Beware of this dude selling a “well done” Bill Watterson FAKE drawing. A good tip to evaluate if an original is real or a forgery on eBay is to go look at his other auctions, they often sell names too big to be real, this one is trying to sell us a Kandinsky….
We close this section with another very nice Gene Colan Dracula Original Art page.
