Crossgen art: the Sojourn splashes and covers by Greg Land all went for $1,000 to 3,000 (like this one). Very nice splashes without the main female character all went for less than $500. Brandon Peterson pages instead all went for less than $1,000, this one for $850, and this for $250. The Jim Cheung cover made $1,600, and some nice splashes for much less. George Perez pages were sold for a low value compared to the amount of work spent: $400 and $220.
