  1. To help this thread get back to sharing examples of art offered for sale or sold at one price and then soon offered for sale again by someone else at a higher price, I wanted to point to a Wrightson Swamp Thing example from 1990. $550 in February 1990: http://www.comicartads.com/content/swamp-thing-4-page-13-0 $650 in December 1990: http://www.comicartads.com/content/swamp-thing-4-page-13
  2. I volunteer to be Mitch's co-author/ghostwriter. After all, I did publish a short interview with him on my website: http://comicartads.com/content/mitch-itkowitz-interview It's good to see that there could be an audience for such a book. Cheers, Lee
  3. The only Ditko ASM ad I have in my collection from the 1980s is this ad from 1987, so perhaps this art was not universally over $1,000 in the 1980s:
  4. Fun stuff! And if you go here: http://www.comicartads.com/ and type "1998" into the "Search Terms" box, you can get over 300 ads like this from 1998. What really gets me are the $150 John Byrne pages from Iron Fist and MTU offered by Tom Horvitz that year. Cheers, Lee
  5.

Brown stain lower left corner. From Dave Hunt's estate, was a smoker and had cats, has an odor of both." Perhaps the new seller sent the pages to Robert Dennis or Gordon Christman for some restoration work before listing them.
  6. You do remember correctly Mark! That cover appeared in a 1990 Graphic Collectibles catalog. You can see that very ad, along with 22 other ads for John Buscema Fantastic Four original comic art, on my ComicArtAds website. Cheers, Lee
  7. Hi all! Please don't forget that my eBay auction for amazing Graphic Collectibles original art catalogs ends tonight. I think these are amazing resources for any serious comic art collector. Best regards, Lee
  8. Thanks for fielding the question Mitch! And just to clarify, the 1994 Wrightson catalog that is part of my auction does show several unpublished penciled and partially inked Frankenstein drawings, but definitely not the cover in question. Cheers, Lee
  9. Hi all! I order to raise some funds to keep buying old original art catalogs, I have put a lot of 12 Graphic Collectibles original comic art catalogs up for auction on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Graphic-Collectibles-comic-art-catalogs-lot-of-12-1984-2000-Kirby-Romita-Colan/114000229101?hash=item1a8af172ed:g:Qs0AAOSwSw5d5x0i Opening bid is $9.99 with no reserve. The catalogs range from 1984 to 2000 and include lots of nice images of art and fascinating prices. These catalogs are my very favorite to scan for my ComicArtAds website (www.comicartads.com) and are a lot of fun to check out. Thanks, Lee ps. If anyone has any old Christie's catalogs that feature original comic art items, please let me know, especially if you would be willing to donate them for my ComicArtAds scanning project. Thanks!
  10. Hi all! If you strike out on Heritage this weekend, please think about picking up a bargain lot of three Keith Giffen pages from a fairly obscure 1980s Marvel Epic series: https://www.ebay.com/itm/VIDEO-JACK-original-comic-art-3-pages-Keith-GIFFEN-1988-NR-nice/113974570728?hash=item1a8969eee8:g:y1gAAOSwndFd0g0I Cheers, Lee
  11. Here's a page from the catalog where Mitch advertised GL 76, page 4. You can find links to other pages in the catalog here and see contemporary Kirby art prices: http://comicartads.com/content/page-2-1 Although the Kirby listings are limited, mostly Jimmy Olsen and second run Cap pages. The Byrne/Marcos Avengers $25 pages and Byrne/Hunt MTU $25 pages are nice though. I would have taken 10 of those over an Adams GL page.
  12. Hello! I have two pages of art from Scooby Doo #32 (2000) ending tomorrow night on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/SCOOBY-DOO-2-pages-original-comic-art-Dave-HUNT-NR-Velma-Daphne-MUMMY-nice/113818213421?hash=item1a80181c2d:g:Q70AAOSwNkxdK-mL This auction consists of Dave Hunt's inks on vellum, along with copies of Joe Staton's pencils for the pages. Thanks for looking! Best, Lee
  13. Hi all! I have an eBay auction ending this Sunday for three pages from Teen Titans Sell-Out #1 (1992). You can see the auction here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/TEEN-TITANS-SELL-OUT-original-comic-art-3-pages-John-COSTANZA-Dave-HUNT-1981-NR/113810584272?hash=item1a7fa3b2d0:g:XKYAAOSwX6JdIqDf Thanks! Cheers, Lee
  14. I agree with Daren, my gut says Hall, not Pollard.
  15. Just a reminder that these eBay auctions end in less than 24 hours. Some nice potential bargains here.... Thanks, Lee
