  1. Hi all! Just wanted to let you know that the current Heritage weekly auction includes several pieces of rarely seen art inked by Dave Hunt, including art by Dan Jurgens, Irv Novick, Kurt Schaffenberger, Curt Swan, and Stan Woch that Dave inked (some examples are below). All proceeds from these auctions go to Dave's family, so bid early and often! Thanks, Lee https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/curt-swan-and-dave-hunt-superman-370-story-page-17-original-art-dc-1982-/a/122109-11917.s?ic4=ListView-ShortDescription-071515 https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/irv-novic
  2. Thanks Glen! Yes, Crumb cover, Memphis Jug Band illustration.
  3. Does anyone happen to have a list of the realized prices from the Sotheby's Comic Books and Comic Art auction from June 1997 that they could share with me? Thanks in advance if you do! Best, Lee
  4. It did win the CAF 2020 "best of" splashes category after all.... https://www.comicartfans.com/bestofyrcatwinners.asp?BOId=7
  5. ...are nothing new. But you probably knew that already. I was reminded of that when I read a piece in Richard Halegua's Comic Art Graffix Gallery Newsletter (Winter 1992), concerning a Sotheby's comics and comic art auction. The main complaints seem to be conflict of interest and market manipulation (sound familiar?). The opinionated article is an interesting little read; I have included scans of it below. If anyone is interested in the comic art offered by Sotheby's in their 1990s auctions, I have uploaded 126 scans (and counting) from Sotheby's catalogs to www.comicartads.com
  6. Thanks for the kind shout-out @Spider-Variant! I do indeed have copies of the Dave Hunt autobiography available for $25 postpaid in the United States. If anyone needs one, please send me a message. And if you need more information about the book, you can find a nice write-up of it here: https://downthetubes.net/?p=101921 For my money, the Andru/Giacoia/Hunt combo on ASM rivals the other great ASM art teams including Kane/Romita Sr. Cheers, Lee
  7. Indeed! I don't think it will take long. As someone who is very fortunate to own a few examples, I don't know whether to be happy or sad!
  8. Regarding Byrne MTU, good catch on the MTU #79 cover Yoram! I admit I focus a bit more on non-Terry Austin-inked Byrne MTU pages and have been waiting for one of those panel pages to cross the $10K threshold. But I haven't seen it yet, even with very strong pages, for example: MTU #60--$9,300 (Nov. 2019) https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/john-byrne-and-dave-hunt-marvel-team-up-60-story-page-16-spider-man-and-yellowjacket-original-art-marvel-1977-/a/7212-94045.s?ic4=ListView-ShortDescription-071515 MTU #68--$9,000 (Aug. 2019) https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/j
  9. Hi Hari! Do we have many, or any, confirmed examples of Byrne MTU panel pages breaking the $10K mark? I follow these pages pretty closely and have not seen this myself, although some pages at auction have come close. Thanks, Lee
  10. Hi Rick! I can't offer much advice regarding Comics Reader, but I am always interested in pre-1999 back issues the Comic Buyer's Guide. I love finding good original art ads in those magazines for scanning and posting on www.comicartads.com I have an index of all the issues I have reviewed so can always let folks know whether I would be interested in a particular issue. Thanks, Lee
  11. Hi all! I have two lots of comic art catalogs that I would like to trade for Christie's Comic Collectibles auction catalogs from the 1990s. However, I could also sell the two lots if there is interest. The lots are: 15 Artman catalogs (1984-1989) plus one Hugo's Collectibles catalog Collectors Showcase auction catalogs #4, #14, #16, #17, #19-23, #30, #32, #35, and #36 (1978-1981); many of the catalogs have lists of prices realized for the auction lots. I would trade each lot for 1 Christie's auction catalog. However, if anyone wants to just send some Christie's catalogs to m
  12. Hi all! I just posted a short interview with Phillip Anderson of Artsource/Booksource/Artworkworld to my ComicArtAds website: http://www.comicartads.com/content/phillip-anderson-interview I had been scanning some images from Phillip's 1992 catalogs and decided to reach out to him to share art collecting and selling memories. Phillip has offered large amounts of art from particular titles and artists for reasonable prices (example below). I hope you enjoy the interview, and thanks to Phillip for taking the time to answer a few questions! Cheers, Lee
