People have mentioned the second Dave Cockrum X-Men run and the Alan Davis Excalibur pages as having the prices really start to take off in the last year or two. Are there any other series that fit the bill?

Wrightson Frankenstein plates. Ditko Spider-Man. Frazetta oils jumped up to $5M. Bolland Killing Joke. All made exponential leaps.

That's certainly the headline some people want seen lol

Meanwhile, I'll correct it to "an oil" (singular not plural) and a reasonably defensible and appropriate asterix applied to any number greater than the actual and single $4.5m bid.

Much bolder interpretation than even I intended!

Late ‘80s and early ‘90s in general , because of the demographics. If I were to pick a couple of artists I would say Silvestri X-men / Wolverine and Ron Lim Silver Sufer (including non IG / Thanos pages)

Sincerely asking--is this true? Or how true is this? Although I agree that Infinity Gauntlet pages received a bump, but what about other properties such as Luke Cage, Alias, Daredevil, Justice League? Don't know. Can anyone confirm if their OA from the above (or other on-screen properties) took a bump? What about the cool downs when shows are cancelled or big screen storylines come to an end?

If that's the case, then Button Man by John Wagner and illustrated by the excellent Arthur Ranson has been optioned (for a movie, I believe). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Button_Man

Much like his comics, most things Venom have really taken off.  I used to be able to get Lethal Protector pages with Venom in combat for less than 200... not possible any more.

Egyptian Queen secured a record, but Fritz OA was already $$$$$ before it.  And I don't think "taken off" is the best way to describe his market in the wake of an auction with a single bid that cleared (a super high) reserve.

Edit: At least, I hope not.  It was plenty hard enough to get anything nice by him before.

I've heard Sal Buscema is now a top 5 artist, so I expect the value of his pages will be soaring.

I'm seeing Y the last Man start to move up a bit. And Anything Infinity Gauntlet related, particularly with Thanos in it.

This is not true, actually. I know because I've been tracking these types of pages. Walking Dead and Preacher aside, you get a short term speculative bump, and that's pretty much it. And I'm not sure how much the appreciation (such as it was) of Preacher Art was TV show related vs it just being right in the demographic sweet spot for collectors.

I wrote about this before. But, basically, the comic property has to become something of a cultural phenomenon before the art from the comic starts showing any appreciation due to the TV show or film. also, film PROPERTIES tend to have more of an impact than TV shows (in general, with WD being the big exception). See, Mark Bagley Venom pages from ASM.

I agree.  I don't, for example that Spider-Man pages have gone up in value because of the films.  Two totally different audiences.

I think this just made me a 1%. See you all at the next cabal round table. :cool:
