Original Comic Art Tips #150 – Dell’Otto, Perez, Adams!
Welcome to #150 of Original Comic Art Tips!! I’ve been doing this thing every week for the last 150 weeks… 😱 as I usually write on anniversaries, if you enjoy this newsletter, the best way to help me growing it is by sharing an issue with your friends and on social media/groups/forums, and thanks for reading!
Original Comic Art Auction Results:
eBay: The Elfquest painting by Wendy Pini was sold for $4k, a sketch by Tim Burton was sold for $3,5k. I wouldn’t trust anybody but Tim Burton himself in selling me something like this, but I can’t say if its real or not.
I don’t know why the Skeleton Head illustrations by Mike Mignola were sold for such different prices, two were sold for $1,7k, and $1,5k, and they don’t seem better than the two sold for $960 and $940.
The Superman page by Jim Lee was sold for a pre-Covid-auctions price of $1,5k, somebody paid $2,7k for a 2 minute Jim Lee remark. One of the best nude girl pinups by Bruce Timm I’ve seen went for $1,1k, a TMNT page by Eastman/Laird went for $3,250.
Heritage Weekly Auction: no surprises, this week. The Steve Dillon Preacher page went for $3,6k, the Katzenjammer Kids Sunday by Knerr for $2,6k, the Frazetta sketch for $2,5k, a Doonesbury daily for $2,4k.
