Original Comic Art Tips #156 – Capullo, Charest, Cho!!!
Welcome to #156 of Original Comic Art Tips! Last week’s newsletter was too long again, and it went in some spam filters, if you haven’t received it here’s a link. Great week, with a long ebay section and many different auctions!
Original Comic Art Auction Results:
ebay: I can’t tell you the final Best Offer for this $7k Lady Death cover by Steven Hughes, because all online tools have been down for weeks…
The Skeleton Head painting by Mike Mignola went for $ 6,5k, The Elektra commission by Bill Sienkiewicz went for $2,3k, a nice Conan cover by Geoff Isherwood went for under $3,5k, a Marvel Age cover by Gabriel Hardman went for $2,3k, a war page by Joe Kubert for $2,2k.
Heritage Weekly Auction: a Wildcats page by Jim Lee went for $5,2k, The Elektra Assassin splash by Bill Sienkiewicz for the same price, the Frank Cho illustration for $4,3k, the TMNT pinup by Peter Laird for $2,2k.

$2k for a Williamson/Frazetta John Wayne page is not bad, considering prices for tiny Frazetta sketches, a nice Wally Wood inked and signed page for $650, a Nick Fury page with Kirby layouts for $1,6k, a 6 page Wonder Wart-Hog story by Shelton was sold for $3,3k.
Funny how a Bob Kane Batman sketch, with an almost certain provenance, got only one bid at $590, when clearly fake sketches on ebay regularly go for much more.
