thanks D i ck fun article. 

Bit of feedback?   It would be interesting to hear where you come up with the value conclusions.  Comparison points, past sales etc even if its just a half sentence?    Would be at least to me lead to more thought/discussion than 'seems about right' type judgements.

I agree wholeheartedly. I like his articles but they often leave me wondering why he doesn't go a little bit further...expand the depth of the analysis rather than the breadth. (This is from someone who reads "it may" as also meaning "it may not".)

Appreciate the support and feedback guys!

Where available, I include recent sales data for comparative discussion. Of course, such info is sometimes unavailable so I base my opinions on past recollections, perceived market sentiment and the foolproof gut-feel :wink:

In these auction report articles, I prefer to cover a broad range of pieces rather than focus on a handful. This exposes readers to a wider spectrum of art, hopefully hooking them on new artists and giving them a feel for the broader OA market.

For more in-depth analysis and sales data, tune in to my Artist Spotlight articles, where I have room to drill deeper into specific market segments. In fact, there's one coming next week featuring an artistic 'gem' with a 'sterling' career!

      February 23-24: Warren, MI at the Macomb Community College!
      This is a GREAT show that I have attended for years.  It is a top 3 show in the state of Michigan and while certainly not as big as Motor City, it has more of an "old school" feel with a higher percentage of Comic Vendors.  This will be my first time selling at it, and I know @catrick339 and @Nick's Comics will both also be setup there too.  I have done a lot of business with both guys over the years so please check out their booths as well, great books, great prices, and slightly above average Hawaiian shirts (catrick only).
      Jim Steranko, Arvell Jones, Keith Pollard and many more comic book and pop culture creators and celebrities will be in attendance. 
      @Rich_Henn will be onsite as well for signatures.
      There are deals to be had at this show, hope some boardies can attend.
