Original Comic Art Tips #144 – Bolland, Bradstreet Miller!
Welcome to #144 of Original Comic Art Tips, another very long update, this week, with many ending auctions, I’ll have to keep a short results section to keep this email out of spam filters..!
Original Comic Art Auction Results:
ebay: the Superman painting by Jim Lee went for $14,5k, Jim also sold an Harley Quinn painted by Olivia for $6,5k, the Thor pinup by Walt Simonson went for $2,6k, if you don’t consider a premium for a charity auction we’re again higher than the price asked for recent (and bigger) commissions.
The Bela Lugosi drawing by Mike Mignola went for $1,4k.
A Conan page by Barry Smith went for $7,3k, a nice Storm commission by Darwyn Cooke for $1,8k, a Batman commission by Tim Sale for a $1,780 Best Offer, a Black Canary commission by Bruce Timm for $2,6k.

Cornette de Saint Cyr Auction
Many multiple pieces from the same artists, it’s called “collection d’un amateur” for a reason, all of the pieces are in a similar vein, based on the tastes of the collector who bought them.
An impressive collection of 8 Punisher covers by Tim Bradstreet, here’s a color one.
Many DMZ covers by J.P. Leon, I like this one.
Career spanning collection of R.M. Guera pieces, here’s a color Django cover.
