Original Comic Art Tips #157 – Art Adams, Alex Ross, Tim Sale!!
Welcome to #157 of Original Comic Art Tips!! A regular week, with many results and a few nice things on ebay.
Original Comic Art Auction Results:
ebay: the Batman page by Jim Lee was sold for $7,5k, the Harley covers by Frank Cho for $6,3k and $4k, the Fathom pinup by Michael Turner for $3,6k, a great Longshot page by Art Adams went for “only” $3,2k, the Nova splash by Carmine Infantino for $3k.
Interesting results, as usual, for Mike Mignola original art. Remember the Hellboy 25th pinup that was sold at the end of July for $3,2k? After exactly two months it was sold again for $6k… prices for Mignola original art in 2020 have been dominated by the fear of missing out, or better, the fear of prices going too high to afford an original. And strangely enough in a year when Mike produced and sold a high amount of HB illustrations.
Speaking of this, Mike sold this full figure Hellboy for $2,2k, a bust for $1,6k, Lobster Johnson and Skeleton Head for $1,5k. Somebody else sold for (now a low price) $1,2k another HB pinup.
If that wasn’t enough, a 2 page set from World of Krypton, with Superman‘s origin was sold for a pretty low $2k.
Then a Spidey/Deadpool cover by Ed McGuinness went for $2,3k, the Sal Buscema cover recreation for $1,5k, the Frenz/Sinnott one and a Paolo Rivera Guardians cover for $1,7k, a Flash Gordon pinup by Al Williamson for $2k.
A Mary Jane sketch card by John Romita went for a crazy $1,5k…
Heritage Weekly Auction: the Gil Kane Spidey page went for $5,5k, the pinup by Frank Cho for $3,8k, an early erotic page by Gilbert Hernandez for $2k, a Brer Rabbit Sunday by Dick Moores for $1,9k.
The Savage Dragon page by Jim Lee went for a pretty affordable $1k, a Spidey page by Alex Saviuk for $300.
