  1. maybe the very positive reviews for the upcoming monster book have revived interest in bws art?
  2. i don't remember, mark- i was still woozy from the smelling salts the paramedics gave me after seeing the price on the lobo 1 cover. thank you (and steven) for the nice words about my collection!
  3. my wife actually sat with me and watched this live................ i almost had to give her cpr when she saw the prices. she could not believe what she was seeing and kept asking if i had anything like that, . the really interesting pieces sure did well.
  4. i agree with carlo- and many of the others here. the prices on today's auction- the john/sal buscema pages, the byrne alpha flight page, etc- shockingly high
  5. well, the one today sold for 24k.... and the antman page (i am the owner of that one) was also over 20k. as i said, there have been and are neal adams avengers pages on dealer websites that seem to cost around 12-15k- good pages for sure but not A-level pages and that is what we are talking about here. i'll defer to the adams experts but it there seems to be an uptick in the prices of his art.
  6. My comments would be that any semi-decent Neal Adams Avengers page easily breaks 10k right now, let alone a great one. The one sold today was pretty good but I personally would not call that an A-level page. I think the A-level price range would be higher........... and same for Perez as well- no disrespect to the seller of page on HA right now but that page is almost at the bottom of the A-level price range and that is not an A-caliber page in my opinion.
  7. Marvel Two in One 57 page 14 George Perez pencils, Gene Day inks:
  8. here is one from my collection- the cover to nexus 99, when they did the relaunch.
  9. can someone please elighten me how that buscema avengers splash sold for 30k in december and is now a 90k page?
  10. I really liked Sam's inks on X-Men as well......... but for me, I best remember him as an early in ker over George Perez in the Avengers. Here are some examples. First one is from Avengers 143. Next one is from Avengers 149. Next two are from Avenger 148 and the last one is from Avengers Annual 6. On that one, his name is on the credits on the original art itself but not on what was printed- it may be uncredited
  11. captain america, the thing and the batman?? from jla/avengers 2 page 22
  12. wasn't this just sold late last year? easy come, easy go, i guess
  13. to me it is interesting that the increase in the number of auctions HA is now running really doesn't seem to have hurt them. for the material that i look at, most of it seems around where it should be and some of it on the higher side of normal. in general, no real bargains not no real headscratchers either.
