Welcome! a day late this week, look at the high results and the many top pieces at eBay.
Original Comic Art Auction Results
$1,3k for a vintage Batman sketch by Todd McFarlane, $1,3k for a Spidey cover by Mark Bagley, $1,1k for a 1939 Terry daily by Caniff.
A reader listened to my advice and purchased the Spider-Man page by John Byrne for $1,1k. It’s a great deal for a modern page, even better considering the price for vintage Spidey pieces. I know it was bought by one of you because I received a $30 commission from eBay… thanks!
The FAKE Peanuts piece was sadly sold for $1,7k, much less than an original one would go, but still a lot of money to waste. By the way it’s for sale again, so I hope the buyer recognized it was fake once received and sent it back. Write down the seller name and remember not to buy from him.
Heritage Weekly Auction: $4k for the Boys’ Ranch page by Kirby, $3,5k for the Sal Velluto Black Panther DPS, $3k for the Thanos cover by Geoff Shaw, $2,5k for a Spawn DPS by Jason Alexander. only $500 for a Batman page by Colan.
Usually Casey Ruggles strips go pretty low, but an exceptional piece makes $2,6k.
Catawiki: €550 for the Ranxerox sketch by Liberatore.
Comiclink Featured Auction: $220k for the Spider-Man cover by Romita, sold in 2020 for $96k, this Daredevil splash by Wood remains the highest price for Wood interior art at $110k. $70k for a Conan cover by Barry Smith, would you believe that the highest price paid for a Batman panel page by Neal Adams is only $25k?
$18k for a page from TWD #1 by Tony Moore.
There were also many low or relatively low prices, like the $50k paid for a top Spidey page by McFarlane, $27k for a Batman/Superman cover by Jim Lee, low prices for Lee continue with $11k for an X-Men page and $2k for a Punisher.
I really can’t understand why this Thor cover by Kane/Romita went for only $25k, $23k for a Captain America DPS by Kirby, $18k for the title splash to Avengers #12 by Heck, Fantastic Four title splashes by Buscema and Perez went for $15k and $11k, $12k for an early Deadpool page by Liefeld.
Mandarake Auction: $15k for a Totoro sketch by Miyazaki in very bad conditions, then some very rare pieces by Leiji Matsumoto: some published Captain Harlock original pages like this one, sold for $15k, and a Galaxy Express 999 splash, sold for only $2,8k.
