X-Men by Quitely, Thor by Kirby! Original Comic Art Tips #230
Welcome to #230 of Original Comic Art Tips! I’m a little late this week, cause my son passed me his flu… I also had to look into ComicLink results, I’ll do it next week.
Original Comic Art Auction Results:
eBay: an Avengers DPS by Herb Trimpe was sold for $5k, one of the Venom covers by Bryan Hitch for $2,8k, a Star Wars commission by Daniel Warren Johnson for $2,5k, the Death Dealer page by Simon Bisley for $2,4k, a Superman cover by Ivan Reis for $2,1k, a Pogo daily for $1,5k.
Wonder about the real Best offers for these two pieces: a Jimmy Olsen page by Kirby priced at $12k and a Wolverine color guide signed by Frank Miller at $13k.
Heritage Weekly Auction: The Viking Prince page by Joe Kubert was sold for $11k, the TMNT cover by Kevin Eastman for $4k, the On Stage Sunday for a pretty high $2,4k, a Terry daily by Caniff at $500 was a good deal.
Heritage Garfield Auction: if you were wondering, even Garfield strips are growing in price, the top was this 2000 Christmas day daily sold for $4,8k, then a Christmas book cover illustration for $4,7k. Then we go down with pre-1982 strips and the funnier gags, like a Sunday for $4,3k, a daily for $3,3k, an early illustration for $3,2k.
The good deals were the six dailies lots, the lower price was $1,3k, or $210 per strip. Another good deal was this 1981 Sunday with a funny gag. It probably went for less than $700 cause you only see Garfield’s head.
Catawiki: the Cocco Bill illustration by Jacovitti went for €2,3k, a Rosso Stenton page by Micheluzzi for €900.
Weiss Auctions: the Peanuts daily for $70k (and I think these are pre-B.P. prices). The full Team-Up issue by Sal Buscema for $34k, the Spidey cover by Rich Buckler for $28k, the Alex Toth 7-page lot went for $12k, the 6 Sgt. Rock miniseries covers by Joe Kubert for $10k. A Human Torch page by Sal/Sinnott for $1,3k was not bad.
