  1. I found it mildly interesting that Jim was tagging all the winners on Instagram at the beginning. Just so used to not knowing who buys what, to see them tagged and seeing OA stuff move to social platforms rather than chat boards and mailing lists adds a fun dynamic:) He’s stopped doing it, wonder if there was a reason.
  2. I’m not in the Sin City art market but loved the series. I would place a big premium on which series it came from, I’d imagine the prices roughly follow the publication history The Hard Goodbye > A Dame to Kill For > The Big Fat Kill >That Yellow > Family Values > Hell and Back With some of the jumps more significant than others.
  3. I picked up two big items (for me) I’d been after for a while and thought they were my best chance. The Totleben/Bissette Swamp Thing page. It’s the right art team from Alan Moore’s run, it’s kind of “Anatomy Lesson” adjacent, it kind of got Swamp Thing...decent at $3k due to the “kind of’s”. The Quitely X-Men page. $3,120 seems high, but probably market price as I just can’t seem to find a good page with x-men. As an aside it was a lot more fun bidding against the auction floor watching along on video yesterday, then on my phone today:)
  4. Good topic! I’ve really been enjoying Farel Dalrymple’s (The Wrenchies) Patreon: The patreon per month is less than the cost of a comic, and he’s doing daily drawings all year you can buy for $20. He throws up other sketchbook type drawings for sale too. I bought this character the other day. The other one I support is James Stokoe. He posts like once a month just a couple drawings, but if it means more Orc Stain at some point...:)
  5. Me too. That really stood out early. I was the under bidder on the Batman page, but it went out of range.
  6. I was able to stop by the exhibit today, being in NYC for work. As someone who’s never been to SDCC or seen art other than my own it was AMAZING. A must see if in NY. The society was such a cool building and concept. It was “sketch night” so majority of the people were there to draw/a lot of regulars at the bar. But the artwork, for me, was outstanding. The Frank Quitely Batman issue is a personal favorite. Getting to see a dark knight page in person. The Knightfall covers are mesmerizing, I’ve read killing joke 20 times, but found new things in the pages, Alex Ross get the idea. Here are some pictures I took :
  7. Eric Roberts owns the 497 pieces per the exhibit.
  8. Does that Art Adams cover say $2,000? Seems incredibly discounted to what I’ve seen of his covers.
  9. I really love those covers, this is really nice. I haven’t seen any of the final inked ones.
  10. No Carnage, but a pair of nice Venom and Spidey pages from that arc also were up.!20105!US!-1 I picked up the other one. These don’t show up often.
  11. Thanks for sharing Glen. I signed up. I appreciate CAF of course. And have also enjoyed Comic Art Tracker, and the Comic Art Aficionados auction recaps. Most of all though I’m grateful in to have an active, old school, message board community of people sharing interests. Thanks!
  12. The descriptions in these auctions drive me bonkers. One piece I'd been tracking and planning to bid on was this John McCrea Demon page. I own a couple McCrea pages so I am used to his pencil and ink boards (he seems to pencil on one board, then light box himself to ink separate). Basically exactly as the photos show. I've looked at this listing probably 50 times, but just noticed: "This lot includes McCrea's original pencil art for this splash and a production stat of the inked art (the art was inked on a separate board which is not included in this lot)." I'm not super interested in that. Glad I saw it. It's funny how many words they spend describing the Publisher, or Artist's other work, the Character's history ("Did you know Wolverine is Popular?!"), or in this case how "DC really needs to make an R-rated Hitman movie for the same people who loved the Deadpool films." That you have to really search for meaningful information about the piece you are potentially buying. -Over:)
  13. I have the Omnibus, took a peak at that page. The only description is "X-Statix vs Avengers Jam piece"
  14. Sure. He had a couple panels that were 300-400. Just single panels. One was the mr sinister her tweeted recently. Very cool image but small. For that cover he had 3 boards: wolverine & gambit- $1500 full team- $1000 head shots and storm/cyclops question mark (1 board) $500 varios sizes but all on the smaller end. Someone bought the $500 within the first hour of the show. I like the art to represent the printed page so couldn't get over single panel or how they were split.
  15. @jay Ollie espy: It totally escaped me to ask. I'd meant to, and forgot.
