I don't doubt you can win that way.....I just don't know if it's the best idea.

I have been paranoid enough where I watch the auction on my phone and laptop just in case something goes wrong.  For this one I just had my phone and was super nervous until the lots I was interested in closed.

Just saw this and dropped my jaw. $26k for a panel page published this year from a book I’ve never heard of (but that says more about me than it). Beautiful artwork but man that’s a huge chunk of change.

There were a number of pieces that went for $6,600 and for $5,040.  Is that just someone bidding on a lot of things over the internet with that as a budget?

That works out to 5500 and 4200 before juice.

I don't follow current books, but that last panel is great.  David

There's quite a few Bright fans out there. It's a nice page.

There’s absolutely no one i know in the hobby that’s putting thier max bid in on a five figure piece that way. Call me superstitious. 

Chris, you know me... so, that’s 1.

I’m not taking my hands off the wheel on a five figure piece. I would get the shakes running real money on autopilot.

I ended up with the one piece I bid on and wanted. Ended up going for more than I anticipated. There was another very similar piece right before it that I didn't bid on hoping that it would keep someone away from the one I wanted. Then the next one came up and the bidding back an forth started. My friend was over as I was bidding and got to listen to me go "Come on, I let you have the other one" as I whined each time I had to bid again.

Make that two!

I am sometimes not in a position to take a call or be in front of a screen when a lot goes off...I will oftentimes just set it and forget it.  

Even when I know I will be bidding live (always through HeritageLive! online, never by phone), I'll sometimes put in a decent-sized proxy bid and then bid manually for further increments if need be (often not necessary).  That way if my computer crashes or something, I know I have a bid in that at least has a chance of standing up even if I am unable to bid further due to technical issues.  

I've only had a technical problem once with Heritage; out of nowhere the connection glitched out for a matter of some seconds and I lost access to HeritageLive!...I thought I got in a potential winning bid just before the glitch, but, when it came back up, I saw that my bid didn't go through.  But for that, the Adrian Tomine The Donger and Me piece might have been in my collection instead of Felix's!  lol

Does that make Enrico Marini the next Frank Miller?

Me 2.  Although I really have no choice because of the time difference.

Doesn't mean you can't monitor the live bidding too. 

But if you put in a strong bid during internet bidding that you think has a legit chance of winning, then that's your first line of defense against some unforeseen disruption, and your live monitoring/bidding is your second line of defense.  If the first time you put in a real bid is during live bidding, then you are totally reliant on nothing unexpected happening at that time.

i was the consignor on this and the guy who asked for an estimate here on the boards. i ultimately decided to sell the page because i wanted to go after a grail or two, as books are more my thing than original art. and also, i love frank miller but this page never did anything special for me, and i just felt that getting a hulk 1 would be the better move for me and my collection. between your advice and heritage's own estimate of the probable range for the piece i never expected it to go nearly that high. obviously i am thrilled about it-- i thought if i got half that amount i would be quite pleased. so, i hope the new owner will love it more than i ever did, and i am also now the proud owner of some grails that i wanted for a long time, in large part thanks to this sale. now my mignola original art pages are staying in the collection-- those will not be on heritage anytime soon. 

Congrats on a great sale!
