  4. Alex Nino is one of the Philippine”s most talented artists. The images that come from his mind are translated into illustrations and comic art of worlds far away, magnificent battles, beautiful women, savages, and much more.I’m pleased to offer a selection of Nino art from the mid 1970s, which I contend was his peak period.All but one original are published in the book, “Satan’s Tears: The Art of Alex Nino” in 1977. Satan’s Tears remains, after 43 years, the definitive book of Nino’s work.Check out the originals HERE The scans, as good as they are, don’t do justice to the originals.Just one other thing.......The color originals, while drawn with colored markers, HAVE NOT FADED IN OVER 40 YEARS!So, if you’re thinking about buying one, don’t let the fact that the art is drawn in markers. If you take care of it, the markers will last another 40 years. Any questions? Give me a call at 845-246-0952 or email at Thanks for looking. Have a great week and be careful out there.Always looking for consignments. Best, Mitch Itkowitz Graphic Collectibles
  5. Good Evening All, Richard Bickenbach (1907-1994) was a mainstay in the animation business for over 40 years. Starting at Warner Brothers in the mid to late 1930s, he worked as an animator on the Merrie Melodies and Looney Tunes shorts for the top cartoon directors In 1947 Bickenbach moved to MGM and spent 10 years there animating close to 80 Tom and Jerry cartoons. He moved to Hanna-Barbera and became one of their first employees and was there for almost 2 decades as their main layout artist, influencing the style for many of their characters. Bickenbach is credited with many of the studios early model sheets and character designs. On the website you will find a wealth of very early layout drawings of most of your favorite Hanna-Barbera characters. Some of these drawings were featured in the exhibition at the Norman Rockwell Museum Hanna-Barbera show in 2016. These layout drawings, which all came from the Bickenbach files, are being made available for sale, some for the first time. You can own a piece of early Hanna-Barbera animation history for very reasonable prices. Click HERE to see these great drawings.

  7. CGC does not authenticate comic book art, just sketches. I doubt there is anyone there qualified to authenticate Ub Iwerks Art. If you send me a PM with scans, I will show a friend, who is quite knowledgeable on the subject Mitch

  9. Good Afternoon All, While there are many Neal Adams covers in collections and for sale, very few are as iconic as the Superman #252 cover. Superman #233, "Kryptonite Nevermore!" comes to mind.Penciled and inked by Adams, the cover features a large figure of Superman as well as quite a few, mostly Golden Age characters, flying along with Superman.The central figure of Superman was featured on quite a bit of Superhero merchandisefrom the 1970s through the 1990s.Click HERE to see the cover and information.Any questions, please feel free to email me at or call at 845-399-7312.Thanks for looking and be safe out there.Best,Mitch ItkowitzGraphic Collectibles

  11. I think the Infantino cover being one of the weaker ones, actually sold for a respectable price. The Romita unpublished Spider-Man page, when I was selling it at San Diego last year, was priced at $20,000. At $9000+ it’s about where it should have sold. The Kirby Kobra is a great drawing of an incidental character. I was offered the drawing and passed, but it so,do for about what I told the owner what it was worth. MI
  12. I am extremely proud and honored to announce that Michael Kaluta and I will be working together for the sales of some of his original art. Michael, as everyone knows, in one of the foremost illustrators of Fantasy art in the world. And he's also a great guy! The first originals I'm offering are from Michael's 1994 Tolkien Calendar. These paintings are breath-taking in person and must be seen to appreciate them. Michael has never offered these paintings before now. The paintings he did sell, were sold privately to one collector. The remaining have been on Michael's wall since 1994. Click HERE to see the offerings. Any questions? give me a call at 845-246-0952 or email me at Thanks for looking. Have a nice week and be careful out there! Best, Mitch Itkowitz Graphic Collectibles
