Welcome! This week we have many interesting eBay results to see, and I remembered to look at the ComicLink auction…
Original Comic Art Auction Results
eBay: $8,2k for the Witchblade page by Michael Turner, they have really grown a lot lately. The Superman page was sold for $4,9k. $6,4k for the Superman cover by Garcia Lopez, the auction ended with zero bids for the $7k starting price, then it was put for sale again in a 24H auction.
Some Clara pages by Jordi Bernet were sold for high prices, probably because they’re more difficult to find on eBay USA. $1,2k (B.O.) for a full two page episode, a little more, $700 and $700 (B.O.) for a split episode.
Catawiki: €2,4k paid for a regular Tintin sketch by Hergé, the only interesting price of the week.
Mandarake Auction: not the usual top prices, I find surprising that a very rare Ranma sketch by Rumiko Takahashi was sold for only $12k, $6k for a detailed sketch by Hiroiko Araki, $5k for a very nice illustration of fishes by (who else) Takao Yaguchi.
This week HA is selling part of the collection of Joe Sullivan, a Holiday on Ice skater with the habit of exchanging tickets to shows with original strip art and studio visits (at least that’s what they told me 15 years ago when I bought a couple strips on eBay from his collection…). We see a caricatured Joe in this Family Circus panel, then there are some signed strips, like this Dick Tracy daily, and many lots of index card sized sketches like this one.
