eBay: $4,3k for a Superman cover by Gary Frank, $3,3k for the Living Mummy splash by Val Mayerik, $1,8k for the Flash cover by Howard Porter, $3k for the Fantastic Four page by Buckler, $2,2k for a Hawkshaw the Detective Sunday.

$1,8k (Best Offer) for a sketch cover by Omar Dogan, $1,5k for a commission.
Fake town: a Batman painting by “bob kane” was sold for $1k. I remember the name of the “certifier” was the account famous in the early 00’s for selling peanuts sketches made with wax pastels, do you remember them?. Seems an example of a forged piece changing hands many years after the fact.
Another Batman pinup sold for $2k was probably not drawn by Kane, like everything he produced, but the lettering style and signature look real, so at least he signed it.
Heritage Weekly Auction: $5k for the Nemesis art by Kevin O’Neill, $4k for a Batman cover by Ryan Brown, $3,8k for the cover prelim by Alex Ross, $3,6k for the Superman page by Bogdanove, sold a year ago for $4,8k. $3,6k also for the Superman cover by Gary Frank, $3,2k for the Batman page by Newton, $1,5k was not high for the vintage Spidey page by Bagley, $500 was low for the Gambit page by Lee Weeks.
Catawiki Auctions: €1,9k for a 1993 Garfield daily, one of those regular strips sold every week on HA for $400… nothing more. I just gave you an idea for flipping some orange cats.
€900 for a Juan Jimenez page, €850 for the Corben illo, €750 for a Ranxerox sketch by Liberatore, €700 for a Manara sketch (not 100% sure about its originality), €400 for the Dylan Dog page by Roi, €250 for the nice Axa strip by Romero, only €50 for this Tex page by Carnevale.
