Welcome to Original Comic Art Tips #84, for some coincidence several nice Marvel pages are ending today, if you opened this newsletter early run to the eBay section… If you’re late there’s a new blog post on the website. Link at the end.
Original Comic Art Auction Results.
Heritage Sunday: the Captain America page by Mike Zeck went for $2,600, the Spider-Man for $1,800. The Alan Davis Excalibur for $2,900, Byrne original art: Spider-Man $1,900, Fantastic Four $1,800. The Giffen/Maguire JLI page went for $1,800, the Mignola Superman for $1,400 and the Shoe Sunday strip for $1,100.
The Romita Sr. Daredevil page was sold for $2,100, a very good price for a Romita fan, considering that a same level page from the Silver/Bronze age would cost 8/10 times more.
Bargains: as usual, auction starting at $0 go for very different prices than fixed prices sales, especially for commissions. A nice Batman DPS by Tony Daniel was sold for $650, a Wonder Woman cover for $550 and a Superman splash for $300. An U X-Men page by Chris Bachalo went for $170, an Iron Fist commission by John Byrne for $475, a color Spider-Man bust by Ryan Ottley for $170 and somebody bought this nice Spider-Man pinup by Bill Sienkiewicz for $280. I’m happy for him.
The Jim Lee Batman pinup was sold for more than $20,000, with the money going to charity.
This week on eBay
There are some nice Marvel pages ending TODAY, so I’m starting from them: very nice (and cheap, for now) Spider-Man: Chapter One page by John Byrne… think quick.
Then a Fantastic Four splash by Paul Ryan, a great Terry Dodson Harley/Poison Ivy 2/3 splash still at LESS THAN $200 (I hope somebody here will thank me tomorrow for this one). Another Terry Dodson page with Emma Frost, a nice and very cheap Andy Kuhn Spider-Man Adventures page, an Ultron preliminary illustration by Simone Bianchi.
There’s also a cheap, new John Romita Jr. page with a low BIN. Hulk Vs. Thor with Avengers and F.F. cameos….
If you need more time to think there are many other pages: Captain America and the Young Avengers by Jim Cheung, Frankenstein Vs. Dracula by Sal Buscema and Frankenstein Vs. a gun by Bob Brown. Ultimate F.F. original art by Adam Kubert, Black Panther Vs. Kraven in a rare sequential page by Joe Jusko, Wolverine by Steve McNiven and Logan by Humberto Ramos, a nice Peter Parker page by Romita Jr and a DPS from Spider-Man 2099 by Rick Leonardi. I don’t know who’s fighting who though.
Vintage Sandman and Death sketch by Kelley Jones, Black Cat page by Jack Kirby, a painted Spirit cover by Eric Powell, Astro City DPS by Brent Anderson. Not that great, but still a Walking Dead splash… Judge Dredd cover by Carlos Ezquerra, “cheap” Travis Charest sketch, very nice Jaime Hernandez page, a New Yorker cover by Ivan Brunetti and a sketch for another one, a Flash Gordon Sunday by Mac Raboy.
