Vintage Byrne, Leonardi, Stroman on the Bay – Original Comic Art Tips #254
Welcome to #254 of Original Comic Art Tips!!
Original Comic Art Auction Results:
eBay: a House of Secrets splash by Alex Toth with some big condition issues went for a $4,7 Best Offer, a nice illustration prelim by Dave Stevens for an affordable $1,8k, two TWD pages by Adlard were sold for a $1,5k B.O., a Union calendar painting by Sam Kieth for $1,5k, a ‘90s X-men page by John Hebert for $1k.
The John Romita remarked Artist’s Edition went for $1k, this copy was an Artist’s Proof and had a rare bust Punisher sketch, so copies with Spidey sketches should go for less. A Hellboy remarked Artist’s Edition went for a $700 B.O., lower than the $1k of a few months ago.
Heritage Weekly Auction: a World of Warcraft cover by Jim Lee went for $6,6k, a not-that-great page by George Perez for the same price, the modern Hulk cover by Dale Keown was not a bad buy at $4k, an early Cloak & Dagger page by Ed Hannigan went for $3,6k.
Catawiki: the Corto Maltese strip by Hugo Pratt was sold for €3.750, the Blacksad commission by Guarnido for almost €700, the Tex page by Bernet for €500, the Disney title pages by Valerio Held for €600 and €550.
This week on eBay
Marvel: a W.C. Avengers page by John Byrne, look at this cool vintage Rick Leonardi X-Men piece and this rare Larry Stroman X-Factor page, Iron Fist pages by Ernie Chan, probably a Hulk sketch by John Buscema (awful photo).
A sketchbook full of Gambit sketches, the Jim Lee one is easily worth the starting price.
I’m watching this fancy fake Kirby sketch to see how high it will go…
DC: very nice Joker commission by Tim Sale, a Darkseid Elite Who’s Who piece by John Byrne, Flash pages by Greg LaRocque and Mike Collins, a Mighty Love page by Chaykin, a Sandman painting by Shawn McManus, Dream & Death by David Mack.
