Original Comic Art Auction Results
eBay: $14k (Best Offer) for a beautiful Preacher cover for Wizard by Glenn Fabry, $3,5k and $2k for two Wonder Woman pages by George Perez, $3,5k for a cover by David Mack, $3k for a ROM splash by Sal Buscema, $3k for the Superman DPS by Ed McGuinness, a bit high for Clark having a bath…
$2k for a Thor sketch cover for charity by Walt Simonson, $1,8k (B.O.) for a Captain America advertising pinup by John Romita, $1,6k (B.O.) for a girl pinup by Bruce Timm, $1,5k is a bit low for this 1996 Hellboy commission by Mike Mignola, $1,5k for the Soulfire page by Michael Turner, $1,5k for a rare Charlie Chan daily by Andriola.
$1k for a commission of The Boys by Russ Braun, $1k for a Thunderbolts cover by Mark Bagley. The Namor page by John Byrne stayed low at $700, maybe because as I suspected it is one of those pages photocopied on DuoTone paper to add greytones? Low $750 for a Hagar Sunday by Dik Browne.
Speaking of fake sketches, the Charlie Brown sold last week for $1,8k and quickly put for sale again is ending tonight and it seems to stay lower… Meanwhile, the forger is ready for the next auctions: yesterday he posted on a Facebook group purposely blurry pictures of Batman sketches freshly drawn (by him), probably with the intent of legitimizing them.

Hero Initiative Charity Auction: Incredible $20k for the Thor piece by Walt Simonson, $6k for the Hela cover by J. Scott Campbell, a little less for the Bloom County daily, $3,2k for the Batman pinup by Kelley Jones, a commission of this quality would go for less than half this price, $3k for Conan by Mark Schultz, $2,8k for a Superman sketch by Frank Quitely, $2,6k for a cover quality X-Men piece by Nick Bradshaw, $2k for a Swamp Thing illustration by Rick Veitch, $1,6k for Don Rosa, his commissions always go for two times the price he would ask you.
