  1. Thanks for the recent examples @Kohei, @lobrac, and @cloud cloddie! Letting new (and veteran) art collectors know that pages popping up for sale are being listed at prices 2X (or way more) than quite recent purchase prices is a great educational service and makes this hobby stronger.
  2. Cory sent three different new Marvel Masterworks copies when I scanned three sets of complete interiors I owned and sent them to him a couple of years ago. Cory also thanked me in the books. It worked for me.
  3. You are following Al Gofa art sales?!? I am impressed.
  4. I mean to resurrect this topic before today's Signature auction started, but better late than never, to see these pieces...Before they went to Heritage: Neal Adams Action Comics #366 cover https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/covers/neal-adams-action-comics-366-cover-original-art-dc-1968-/a/7242-91002.s http://www.comicartads.com/content/action-comics-366-cover Dale Keown Sensational She-Hulk #17 cover https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/dale-keown-and-joe-rubinstein-sensational-she-hulk-17-cover-original-art-marvel-1990-/a/7242-94093.s?ic4=ListView-Sh
  5. Hi all! My Schaffenberger art auctions begin to end tonight. I also have listed some art books on eBay related to Jim Steranko and John Buscema. Thanks, Lee https://www.ebay.com/sch/leebenaka/m.html?item=114740272049&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562
  6. Update: I have listed all six of these nice-looking Kurt Schaffenberger Superboy pages on eBay, with low starting bids: https://www.ebay.com/sch/leebenaka/m.html?item=114740272049&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562 Thanks, Lee
  7. Update: Now on eBay (see below)! Hi all! I just put 6 pages of original art from The New Adventures of Superboy #19 (1981) in my CAF for sale folder: https://www.comicartfans.com/galleryroom.asp?gsub=151037 These are very nice pages, in great shape, with sharp art by Kurt Schaffenberger and Dave Hunt. And best of all, each page is priced at $85 + shipping! Please let me know if you have any interest in this low-dollar art drop! Cheers, Lee
  8. 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
  9. Thanks Glen! Yes, Crumb cover, Memphis Jug Band illustration.
  10. 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
  11. It did win the CAF 2020 "best of" splashes category after all.... https://www.comicartfans.com/bestofyrcatwinners.asp?BOId=7
  12. ...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
  13. 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
  14. 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!
  15. 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
