Many Sal Buscemas and results – Original Comic Art Tips #264
Welcome to #264 of Original Comic Art Tips! This is a second send, software assistance told me they had a server outage on Friday so nobody received it…
eBay: a Batman page by Neal Adams was sold for a $11k Best Offer, I wonder if it would have gone higher at Heritage.
The Star Wars page by Infantino for $5,4k, a Cavewoman cover by Budd Root for $4,2k (BO), a Cyberfrog cover by Ethan VanSciver for $2,5k, a painted cover by Scott Hampton for $2,5k, a Batman bust by Jason Fabok for $2k (I remember one sold no more than a month ago for less than $500, but I can’t find the link now).
A JLA page by Paul Pelletier claiming to feature the first appearance of Batwoman who Laughs went for $2,5k, while a Wonder Woman splash by Nicola Scott containing the first appearance of Star Sapphire went for $2k. (I never was an expert of the classic DC Universe, now I don’t really have a clue about what I just typed…)
$1,6k (BO) for a Spidey page by Alex Saviuk, $1,6k for a Black Cat page by Lee Elias, $1,5k for a Tarzan page by Manning, $1,5k for a Thor page by Ron Frenz, $1,3k for the Juliet Jones Sunday by Stan Drake.
$7,2k for a Spidey page by Byrne, $6,3k for a Forever People page by Kirby, $5,3k for a Sgt. Rock page by Kubert, $4,3k for a Legion page by Shooter, $4,2k for Dreadstar by Starlin, $2,6k for an Invincible page by Ryan Ottley.
Heritage Ed Asner Charity Auction: the Hellboy illustration by Mignola went for $7,2k, the cover by Adam Hughes for $6k, the Thor pinup by Walt Simonson for $5,5k, two Ghost Rider covers by Aaron Kuder for $900 seems a very good deal, a Jurgens/Nowlan Batman page for less than $800, the Hellblazer cover by Declan Shalvey for $600.
This week on eBay
DC: an Atrocitus sketch by Jim Lee, which was #26 of the 60 sketches done for charity in 2020. At the time it was sold for $4,3k, and now that I think of it I believed I’d see many of them for sale again, instead this is the second/third time it happens in two years…
A Batman page by Tim Sale, Transmetropolitan by Darick Robertson, I like this Batgirl pinup by Jae Lee, lowered price on the Batman sketch by Mignola, Ambush Bug by Giffen, some more Flash pages by Greg LaRocque. A Batman commission by Tony Daniel.
I don’t usually link to sketch covers but this CGC 9.8 remarked cover by John Romita seems a pretty good investment in 2022.
A Cyberfrog DPS by Ethan VanSciver, a Elvira title splash by Dave Cockrum, a Cavewoman painting by Budd Root, a Geiger splash by Gary Frank, a Dawn pinup by Linsner, Mage by Matt Wagner, nice Witchblade page by Tony Daniel, a splash from The Boys by John McCrea.
Books with simple sketches by Kim Jung Gi are getting offers at $1k.
Heritage Weekly Auction
Sotheby's Persepolis Auction
Sotheby’s is auctioning 40+ pages from the Persepolis novel by Marjane Satrapi. Prices are high (£4k starting price), but considering that Persepolis is one of the most read graphic novels since Maus it may become a very good deal in the long run.
See you next week!!
