Adam Hughes, Chris Samnee, Carl Barks, Bruce Timm and more art for sale! in this week’s Original Comic Art Tips Newsletter!!
Ebay results: the Thor page by Jack Kirby went for $4,600, I’m a little surprised by the Superpowers page for $2,700. The little Hellboy cover by Mike Mignola for $2,100. Basically what a second quality page (with tiny Hellboy images) from the latest comics would cost. I’d take the cover.
I’d bet that the Space Ghost sketch by Alex Toth went for less than $400 because it wasn’t inked by himself (even if the inker was a certain Bill Sienkiewicz). A sketch like this in pure pencils should sell for at least $800.
Heritage Sunday: the Alex Toth Sunday style strip went for almost $2,000, the barbarian with naked girls ended pretty low at $1,200, the romance splash went for his market price at $900 and the Hot Wheels page higher than market price at $840. The Bob Lubbers Tarzan style Sunday for $2,800, the Long Sam for $500 and the Robin Malone for only $400.
This week on eBay
It’s November, and like in 2017, Chris Samnee is selling his incredible Inktober daily Batman sketches. This week we have the first 15, Batman in the rain, in the fire, on a Gargoyle, a Catwoman and more.
Many Adam Hughes pieces, a nice Black Cat commission, Mina Harker, Captain America, a Penthouse Comix page and a cheap Lady Death. The usual two Wonder Woman pages by Don Heck but this week they’re very nice. A Batman splash by Don Newton and a panel page, this Wonder Woman sketch by Neal Adams is going cheaper than his own prices. This Michael Cho Flash Sketch is much cheaper than his commission prices.
A great War Machine splash by Butch Guice, a Spiderman page by John Byrne, full team Fantastic 4 page by Paul Ryan, One and Two cheap Hulk pages by Ed McGuinness, act fast, Jim Starlin‘s Hulk original art, Spiderman by Sal Buscema and an Eternals/Thor page by Paul Ryan signed by writer Walt Simonson and Inker Al Williamson.
Several Walking Dead pages this week, this one is the best with Michonne and signed by Kirkman.

Heritage Signature Auction Nov 15/17
The Signature Auction is ending two weeks from now, there’s so much high quality Original Comic Art to see that I’m splitting my review in three parts, A to Z. This is part 1/3.
Barry Windsor Smith has a selection of artwork from many of his “modern” comics. The first is a Weapon X saga cover from MCP #82, then an interior page from #84, a nice cover from Eternal Warrior #7, a page from the first appearance of Rune, a pair of beautifully detailed fantasy comic strips and some more.
B. Krigstein‘s complete “The Master Race” from EC Comics is the cover item for this auction.
Bill Everett has drawn Namor in all 6 panels of this page, a New Mutants splash by Bill Sienkiewicz, a beautiful Powell/Wood page from Daredevil #10. Again, Bruce Timm Art for Sale: a color Spiderwoman pinup, and look at this World’s Finest cover by Curt Swan! An Incredible Hulk cover by Dale Keown and a Dave Cockrum page from X-Men #94..!
A bunch of high end Peanuts strips (all Schulz originals are high end, I know, but these are some of the best) like a 1952 early Snoopy Sunday, a pre-Peanuts Li’l Folks panel, Lucy being Lucy and you can dream that this Peppermint Patty daily from 1991 remains affordable until the hammer (look for the other Peanuts strips on HA).
See you next week for the second part of Heritage’s highlights and the usual great new original comic art!
