  1. Hi all! I have consigned two lots of Mark Trail comic strips to ComicLink for auction, and they are ending tonight. Each lot includes five-strips, and all strips come from a nice-looking storyline revolving around sea otters. And before you think, oh, sea otters, they are so cute and harmless, who cares, please feel free to search the internet for fun facts about sea otter behavior. I am too sheepish to include links in this post, but the more you know, the more you may end up cheering for the oil slick that threatens "Buttons" and company in this storyline. Oh, and here's the auction listings, please bid bid bid! https://www.comiclink.com/Auctions/item.asp?back=%2FComicTrack%2FAuctions%2Fauctions_first.asp&id=1726183 https://www.comiclink.com/Auctions/item.asp?back=%2FComicTrack%2FAuctions%2Fauctions_first.asp&id=1726184
  2. Good luck Larry, lots of great pieces here! I'll certainly put down multiple bids. Cheers, Lee
  3. Another amazing Heritage Signature Auction is wrapping up over the next few days, and again some of the lots may look familiar to folks who remember art-for-sale ads from decades past, from dealers including Conrad Eschenberg, Mitch Itkowitz, Albert Moy, and others: Michael Kaluta, The Shadow #11 cover https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/covers/michael-kaluta-the-shadow-11-cover-original-art-dc-1973-/a/7358-93041.s?ic4=ListView-ShortDescription-071515 http://comicartads.com/content/shadow-11-cover Rob Liefeld, New Mutants #98, page 4 https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/story-page/rob-liefeld-the-new-mutants-98-story-page-4-gideon-original-art-marvel-1991-/a/7358-93067.s?ic4=ListView-ShortDescription-071515 http://comicartads.com/content/new-mutants-98-page-4 Barry Smith, Conan #10, page 13 https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/story-page/barry-smith-and-sal-buscema-conan-the-barbarian-10-story-page-13-original-art-marvel-1971-/a/7358-93091.s?ic4=ListView-ShortDescription-071515 http://comicartads.com/content/conan-10-page-13 Matt Baker, Fight Comics #50, page 3 https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/story-page/matt-baker-fight-comics-50-tiger-girl-story-page-3-original-art-fiction-house-1947-/a/7358-95015.s?ic4=ListView-ShortDescription-071515 http://comicartads.com/content/fight-50-page-3 June Brigman, Power Pack #15 cover https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/covers/june-brigman-and-bob-wiacek-power-pack-15-beta-ray-bill-cover-original-art-marvel-1985-/a/7358-95031.s?ic4=ListView-ShortDescription-071515 http://comicartads.com/content/power-pack-15-cover D.

  4. Just a reminder that you can see thousands of these old CBG and Mitch catalog ads in a searchable database: http://www.comicartads.com/ It also has full scans of many old catalogs from the 1970s!
  5. It could have been the #162 cover. There certainly was some excitement and confusion at the time. I agree that Perez didn't do the art for the alternate, almost-identical version, but that it was probably Pablo Marcos.
  6. Heritage does provide scans to Marvel for its Epic Collection trade paperbacks. It's not quite the same thing as an Artists Edition, but the back-of-paperback scans are part of a non-inexpensive book that is being sold by Marvel.
  7. I seem to recall from years ago that a very high-quality recreation of this cover by George Perez came up for sale privately or at auction. The recreation was so good that some Perez collectors momentarily thought it was the real thing. I could be having false memories here, but it seemed to cause a brief sensation. Anyone else recall this?
  8. The most recent Heritage Signature auction is over, so now you can see a few additional pieces with final prices, along with the asking prices from decades earlier: Al Milgrom, Captain Marvel #46 cover https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/covers/al-milgrom-captain-marvel-46-cover-original-art-marvel-1976-/a/7342-95237.s?ic4=ListView-ShortDescription-071515 http://comicartads.com/content/captain-marvel-46-cover Gene Colan, Requiem for Dracula #1 cover https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/covers/gene-colan-requiem-for-dracula-collection-cover-original-art-marvel-1993-/a/7342-95085.s?ic4=ListView-ShortDescription-071515 http://comicartads.com/content/requiem-dracula-1-cover Johnny Craig, Crime Patrol #14 cover https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/covers/johnny-craig-crime-patrol-14-cover-original-art-ec-1949-/a/7342-95090.s?ic4=ListView-ShortDescription-071515 http://comicartads.com/content/crime-patrol-14-cover
  9. Hi all! If you are looking for lots of cheap art lots, look no further than my consignments that are ending tonight at Comiclink. No grail pages (unless you are obsessed with Mark Trail, shooting otters, or Mr. Hero, the Newmatic Man), but it's art: https://www.comiclink.com/Auctions/item.asp?back=%2FComicTrack%2FAuctions%2Fauctions_first.asp&id=1723414 https://www.comiclink.com/Auctions/item.asp?back=%2FComicTrack%2FAuctions%2Fauctions_first.asp&id=1723415 https://www.comiclink.com/Auctions/item.asp?back=%2FComicTrack%2FAuctions%2Fauctions_first.asp&id=1723416 https://www.comiclink.com/Auctions/item.asp?back=%2FComicTrack%2FAuctions%2Fauctions_first.asp&id=1723417

  11. Hi all! I have listed two Gene Colan pages from his adaptation of the Little Shop of Horrors movie. These are two of the better pages from the adaption, with many images of Audrey. The pages are $525 each, or both pages for $1,000. Please contact me via the email address listed on CAF if you are interested, although an "I'll take it" response here could work, assuming you follow up when I PM you. I also reduced the price on a Kurt Schaffenberger Superboy splash listed in my CAF for sale gallery. You can see all of the affordable art for sale here: https://www.comicartfans.com/galleryroom.asp?gsub=151037 Thanks!

  15. Lo, there shall be an ending...to the Billy Graham estate consignments of Hero for Hire art to weekly Heritage auctions. The last two pages to be auctioned, with all proceeds going to Graham's family, include an atmospheric urban scene with pencils and inks by Graham, as well as a kind of gruesome page from Tuska and Graham: https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/story-page/billy-graham-hero-for-hire-14-story-page-13-original-art-marvel-1973-/a/322337-47094.s?ic2=myconsignmentspage-lotlinks-12202013&tab=MyConsignment-112816 https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/story-page/george-tuska-and-billy-graham-hero-for-hire-11-story-page-11-original-art-marvel-1973-/a/322337-47241.s?ic2=myconsignmentspage-lotlinks-12202013&tab=MyConsignment-112816
  16. Here's a few final pieces of art in the current Heritage Signature Auction that have appeared for sale in decades past: Mike Mignola, Defenders #139 cover https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/covers/mike-mignola-and-kevin-nowlan-as-larry-mundelo-the-defenders-139-cover-original-art-marvel-1985-/a/7341-93077.s?ic4=ListView-ShortDescription-071515 http://comicartads.com/content/defenders-139-cover Neal Adams, The Brave and the Bold #84, page 18 https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/story-page/neal-adams-the-brave-and-the-bold-84-story-page-18-original-art-dc-1969-/a/7341-95005.s?ic4=ListView-ShortDescription-071515 http://comicartads.com/content/brave-and-bold-84-page-18 Jack Kirby, Tales of Suspense #76, page 10 https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/story-page/john-romita-sr-tales-of-suspense-76-captain-america-story-page-10-original-art-marvel-1966-/a/7341-95346.s?ic4=ListView-ShortDescription-071515 http://comicartads.com/content/tales-suspense-76-page-10 Happy bidding everyone!
  17. That's a good point Terry! Maybe I will go back and do a post-mortem once the auction ends. I have gotten in the habit of trying to list these items before the auction ends, as I tend to "move on" mentally once an auction is over. But I will consider a "wrap-up" post after the auction ends, to see how many multiples (if any) the current auction price is over the price from decades past.
  18. Three more Hero for Hire pages at Heritage this week, ending tomorrow evening, with all proceeds going to Billy Graham's family: https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/story-page/billy-graham-and-paul-reinman-hero-for-hire-6-story-page-14-original-art-dc-1972-/a/322336-46079.s?ic2=myconsignmentspage-lotlinks-12202013&tab=MyConsignment-112816 https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/story-page/billy-graham-hero-for-hire-14-story-page-5-original-art-marvel-1973-/a/322336-46080.s?ic2=myconsignmentspage-lotlinks-12202013&tab=MyConsignment-112816 https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/story-page/billy-graham-and-frank-mclaughlin-hero-for-hire-16-story-page-17-original-art-marvel-1973-/a/322336-46081.s?ic2=myconsignmentspage-lotlinks-12202013&tab=MyConsignment-112816
