I joked that we should get #AlbertWins trending on Twitter.  Albert always wins!

Ditko ASM has supplanted Kirby FF as the new gold standard it seems

I have been envisioning a rapidly approaching (alternate reality) future where KIRBY prices, on more so-called 'weaker' pieces, stalls out & by default becomes more affordable, and, because of numerous previously well discussed hypothetical variables, demand for them significantly drops...resulting in more 'dead' inventory, and auction material...

Gene, thanks for the excellent summary

I was one of the folk that used the LA Art Con to scratch the art itch

That DD160 cover is nice - will be interesting to see the multiple to 163

I know Burkey closed strong, as I have a friend who bought a twice-up Marvel Silver Age cover from him on Saturday (no details; I'm sure he'll post it on CAF soon enough and I don't want to steal his thunder).  

It's now public on Facebook, so I can reveal...the Daredevil #22 cover by Colan was the cover.

It seems by all accounts the winner was SDCC yet again, bringing their record to 48-0.

I know that Mitch moved a good volume of pieces; his sale of the Mister Miracle #6 cover to a Boardie (who has also posted it on Facebook) was the talk of the show - congrats, @glenbru!  Mitch also had the Tim Sale Batman: Dark Victory #1 cover, which sold early on Wednesday; wish I had gotten there first, as I would have snapped it up in half a millisecond.  Same collector who bought the DV #1 cover got a killer Charles Burns piece from Scott Eder Gallery, which made some of the indie guys I know drool.

Dang! I was quite pleased when I was able to grab a couple of pieces when Mitch put up some stuff Thursday morning, I would have been ecstatic if I was able to grab the DV1 cover. Oh well.  There is always more art out there!

Strong contender for winner this year (and most years) is J Scott Campbell.  Through talent and a terrific business savvy, he is a runaway juggernaut, an empire unto himself.  The numbers after the end of each SDCC must be staggering beyond compare.

Alex Ross had a fancy set-up larger than many Manhattan apartments.  How much does he sell to afford this kind of set-up???

(the photo below does not capture the full display, which was enormous - he is set up on BOTH sides of one of the aisle and neither side is fully displayed here)

Bill SIenkiewicz also had a fancy, gleaming white set-up (I think he and Ross are both repped by the same guy)
