Strong prices:

- BWS XM cover: historical et al, yet it is not really clear what is happening on that cover

- Romita ASM twice up splash:  ok, I will be in the minority here, the layout is fantastic but the inks feel a bit shallow on that one

- Perez Infinity Gauntlet: has become historical, and yet I would have thought the characters facing away from the viewer would detract from the prices...wrong!

 

Sounds about right:

- Starlin, Brunner, Wood and Cockrum (with the Wood splash being the best piece in the auction visually, IMHO - so elegant)

 

Best buy:

- M Rogers Dr Strange cover: looks absolutely spectacular 

You know, I agree with you on the Doctor Strange 49 cover -- a number of folks told me that they thought it was a subpar cover and that Rogers wasn't as desirable for a lot of folks.  I took a longer look at the image, and while I still love it, the hands and forearms do a look a bit of proportion, and when it crept up I sort of backed off on it.  That said, it's an awesome image and you're probably right about it.

Agree with you 100%.  

Thought it was a spectacular cover, until I saw exactly what you did.

It's a great looking cover. Is the "Best Buy" label because of the image itself? Where's the market on Rogers Doctor Strange? Seems VERY strong as a final top bid relative to what's come before.

The Zeck SSM #131 cover sold for $33k at HA in Nov 2017. This is obviously a better cover, but is it double? I had it pegged around $40k - 50k. Given that SSM #132 sat at $60k for that long, between the two seems about right. But we've seen plenty of pieces languish on a dealer site only to get wrapped up higher with bidders caught up in auction fever. 

Hammer at $43k, with BP $51,600. 

Congrats to the new owner!

WOW!!!   :flipbait:

$24K for the Vampirella #41 Cover Painting by Enric 

Closest was Vampirella #36 back cover going for $20K a few years ago.

Most of the Enrics go frm $8K-15K

I'm pretty surprised at the price results I've seen thus far. I thought a down stock market would depress prices, but it looks to me like prices are through the roof.

Wow, the Tim Sale Batman pages surprise me.  The first one (Issue 5 page 9) is an A+++ panel page (and more of a half splash) but almost 10K I think surpasses even recent splash page sales.  The second page (issue 5 page 10) is also an A++ page and finished a healthy $7.8K

I'm lucky I already have great examples as I wouldn't be buying at these prices!

I think SSM #131 is better than SSM #132. With the perspective and the city plus being a cliffhanger cover. I prefer it over #132.

Are you talking about Web of Spiderman #31?

I thought I had a shot.

two great Colan DD 27 pages featuring Spider-Man. I focused on the page 12....hammered $19,800. I didn’t have enough bid bullets.

I was hoping half that....

page 11 (no slouch) went for $12,000

Encouraging sales for consignors and as mentioned a few higher priced items selling for less the second time around.

Peanuts stuff was all over the map. Just a note, nothing coming home with me.

Lil Folks was pretty strong in my opinion.  I haven’t seen one in auction for a real long time.  This one had two great scenes in it.

1955 Lucy strip, this one was the sleeper and I am kicking myself for not bidding one more time.less than 20k for a 1950s strip is pretty good.

1956 Sunday.  hammered at $90k and I thought it was a bit weak for the content but the price definitely wasn’t weak.  

1959 Daily Charlie Brown and Snoopy. Hammered at $22.8k.  A little under what I thought it would go for.

how about the giant size x-men 1 page price of 17.5k + BP?

What's that per square inch of actual ink on that page?

These are two very nice pages, both must be nice in person at twice up size.  They seemed pretty similar to me, anybody has a sense as to why the price difference?

I thought the ASM #123 page would have gone higher ($14.4K w the juice)...AM has a page from the same book (IMO the heritage page was nicer and signed by both SL and JR sr) priced at $19K
