I wanted to make a formal announcement about this quarter’s sale date and give you a preview of items in this 4th quarterly sale.  When I started these out last November, the intent was do a full year of these sales and offer 100 different pieces over the course of the year that were fresh to the market.  With the first 75 released, the response has been great I’m happy to say with about half of the items being sold within the initial offering period each quarter.  Thanks to all of you, especially to those who wait patiently to see the listings when I first post them.   
 
First, the date/time that I’ll be listing this quarter’s sale will be 9AM PT/12PM ET on Saturday September 9th.   I figured that it would be best to do after the US Labor Day holiday as some people may be out on vacation that weekend.   But, I've also heard that Comic Art Con going on that day.  So, if you're attending, use that Smart Phone to check in or check in after the event!  If you're not going, then you can look forward to tuning in live for this event.
 
Again, I’ll be listing 25 lots – I start listing them at 9AM PT and will list them one by one on my Comic Art Fans (CAF) site until all 25 lots are listed (which typically takes one hour).  For those Cerebus fans, we’ll continue to deliver some great pages to add to your collection and I’ve saved some of the best for last!  In this sale, we have pages from Church & State, Women, Minds, Form & Void as well the Last Day! 
 
Also in this sale you’ll find:
·       A Smile of the Absent Cat page by Gerhard & Grant Morrison from Heavy Metal
·       A painted 1980's Nexus cover
·       An American Flagg painted splash page by Mike Vosburg & Howard Chaykin
·       A painted Sisterhood of Steel cover by Mike Vosburg
·       A Frank Frazetta Johnny Comet Daily
·       A Transformers Limited Series page by Frank Springer
·       The most important piece of Elementals art by Bill Willingham that has ever been offered in recent years
·       A vintage Michael Golden Marvel Fanfare page
·       A classic 1991 John Romita Sr. #1 cover featuring this first Marvel appearance of an iconic character from the 1950’s!
·       Art for 2 complete Fish Police stories by Steve Moncuse you never knew existed!
·       Some high quality Mike Zeck pieces including a nice Punisher, Deathstroke, and Zeck/Zimelman painting as well as some more affordable sketches
·       Some great Herb Trimpe pieces which I had purchased from his personal collection
·       A page from the 1st Punisher solo magazine from 1975 in which the Punisher’s origin is told for the first time
·       The only surviving pages from the first issue of Stig’s Inferno by Ty Templeton (many were lost in a tragic washing machine accident)
 
Here’s the link to my CAF site where I’ll be listing the pieces.
 
 
The sale will run through Saturday, September 30th.
 
Also, I've brought back items from previous sales that didn't sell at reduced prices.    If you were eyeing something, the price should now be right (if not send me a note and we can discuss)!
 
 
Will this be the last Comiconxion quarterly sale?... Well, I do want to do something to continue to offer some great items to fellow collectors so stay tuned… I’m sure I’ll come up with some fun things to do!

Adding pics for some of my personal favorites which are still available:

  • Cerebus #85 Page 1 DAVE SIM & GERHARD (Church & State) ($2500)  - The splash page in which Cerebus stumbles upon Mick Jagger - even the lettering is cool!
  • Nexus Legends #11 Painted Cover MIKE VOSBURG ($500) - That's a large sized colorful painted cover from 1990 for only $500.  Frankly, I'm surprised this one didn't sell right away.
  • Deathstroke the Terminator Graphitti T-Shirt Design MIKE ZECK ($7,500) - If you've every wanted a nice Zeck Deathstroke cover, Punisher portfolio plate and/or the cover the Punisher #3, you have them rolled into one with this piece.  On larger illustration board, this piece is a portfolio quality piece!
  • Johnny Comet Daily 11-14-1952 FRANK FRAZETTA ($3,500)  This piece has a lot of things you'd want in a Frazetta (including a girl) for a bargain price. 
  • Marvel Fanfare #4 Deathlok Story Page 3 MICHAEL GOLDEN & BOB DOWNS ($2,250) - You don't see a lot of vintage Michael Golden on the market and I've had this piece for years.  Published in 1982, but penciled by  Golden in 1977. 
  • Justice Machine Annual #1 Elementals Inside Back Cover  & 1st Promo Poster Art BILL WILLINGHAM & BILL ANDERSON ($6,500) - This piece is HUGE (4x the size of modern art) & is the piece that Willingham used to shop around the concept of the Elementals team.  It saw publication in plenty of places.  The only things that would rival this as an Elementals piece would be the cover to #1 or Justice Machine Annual #1 and they'd be at least twice as much if they were available.
