Marvel: remember the Marvel poster art sold by John Buscema‘s grandson on eBay for $83k? He’s selling the remaining pieces in his possession. Very nice pinups of Spider-Man, the Punisher, a great (but sadly unsigned) Wolverine, a color Venom, and a color Carnage.
DC: Jim Lee is auctioning sketch #57 of 60, a very detailed Penguin. A Superman/Cap Marvel DPS by Rich Buckler, a Superman sketch by Adam Kubert, a Batman page by John Romita Jr, and two nice color commissions by Marc Hempel, Delirium and Death.
Heritage Weekly Auction
Marvel: Thor original art by John Buscema, a painted Punisher cover prelim by Earl Norem, a Spidey cover by Ron Wilson, an X-Factor splash by Marc Silvestri, a Red Sonja page by Frank Thorne, and a Silver Surfer illustration by Grindberg.
Heritage Signature part 3 – Interior Art
Marvel: the Thing Vs Thor by Neal Adams, a Dr. Strange page by Steve Ditko sold 2 years ago for $66k, a Conan splash by Barry Smith, a beautiful Silver Surfer page by Kirby, a Cap America splash by Sal Buscema.
DC: a Swamp Thing page by Bernie Wrightson, a JLA splash by Mike Sekowsky, Flash by Carmine Infantino, Superman by Jack Burnley, great Batman/Hulk page by Garcia Lopez, a page from Hot Wheels #1 by Alex Toth.
The usual top quality selection we expect from Artcurial, a section is for original Tintin art by Hergé, the top piece is a cover prelim with a € 2 million estimation, the €110.000 for this page layout seems more affordable in comparison.
See you next week!
