  1. I think the complete issue to ROM #32 was gotten for cheap at $13.5K in my opinion. Especially with single ROM pages going to 1$k-$2k if not more on their own. Especially with it being an issue where it has one of ROM's more known enemies and the guest appearance of X-Men villains in it.
  2. No one wants to draw attention to the stuff they're watching.
  3. Yes, sometimes buying a character you like that appeared in another title can save you money that otherwise would cost you a lot more for a page of the same quality if it was from their main title. Spider-man is a great example of that. Another reason is that it might be the only time the artist working on that title ever drew the character you like when they made an appearance in it. Having something like that is interesting.
  4. I first come across OA on Ebay when a collector was selling their collection. I didn't buy anything but was now interested in it. The first piece I got was from a comiclink focus auction. It was a page from the 90's DC Demon series that I got for the large sum of $11 dollars. The shipping on it cost me $30. it was something I didn't even plan on buying. I just decided to look at the comic art tab which I had ignored up to then. As I was scrolling through I saw the piece with it ending in around 30 minutes and decided to put a thrill bid on it and that was that. That $11 dollar purchase has ended up costing me a lot more than I thought it would.
  5. I think a lot of people who were readers of it as it came out (70 issues for what was a toy tie-in comic is good) are now just in a period where they can finally start collecting stuff from having an income. Same for ROM art. It used to be one of the more affordable titles but now a good page will be in the 4 figure range.
  6. A lot of cool stuff in this auction that fits in my wheelhouse for sure. Wonder whoever buys that complete issue of ROM will break it up later on too?
  7. To add to this discussion I believe Felix or @Nexus on the boards had an interesting way of handling digital art that was done by some of the artists he reps. Please correct me if I'm wrong about this, Felix but I remember that if a person was interested in a page or cover from East of West that is done digitally that you would have the option to select what page you were interested and the artist would only draw it once. So instead of buying a 1 for 1 print, you would instead buy the page with the artist drawing it to order, never making another one so that it became the original art that couldn't be duplicated. Is that correct or did Dragotta do some pages and covers physically?
  8. Yeah, I was pretty surprised myself. And as a correction to what I said, after looking it wasn't the cover but the splashpage that showed her for the first time as Thor. It looks like he sells one page from each book and didn't just print these two out. You can see the auction listing for the splashpage on comicartfans along with another page that someone bought from the artist.
  9. Monoprints have already come and sold at auction before this batman example. A little while back I noticed that in one of Comiclink's featured auctions that someone (probably the artist) had consigned two monoprints from the Female Thor comic. Issue #1. This was while the series was in the news at the time. The pieces were the printed out cover and the interior page in where she picked up the hammer and transformed into Thor. Both ended up selling for a few thousand a piece with the interior page coming to auction again a little later and selling for a few thousand again. On a semi-related note. I remember talking to someone about art a while back who told me that they spent some money on a one-off print. Ten or eleven thousand I think. So the idea of selling and people buying these isn't really a foreign concept and seems to be accepted in the art world even if it's not in our subfield of comic art.
  10. Not for me. I live in NJ and we and a few other states always had to deal with the sales tax in mind as we bid while a lot of others didn't. For us, it just levels the playing field.

  12. I really like the Jordan 1s being part of it.
  13. The item that most surprised me this auction was the sealed booster box of first edition pokemon cards. $66K is amazing to me.
  14. Those facebook groups should kick him so he can't screw people over like that.
  15. I remember checking their site a while back and coming across what they call a "60-day commission guarantee" from the link So according to point 3 on their site, Larry can only rip people off if they go through him directly but not his art rep since they hold the money and refund it if he doesn't complete it in the agreed upon timeframe.
