The Crumb Bukowski material sold well. I wanted all of it but the two I wanted the most, went for the most. It was nostalgia for me as a huge fan of Bukowski in particular. 
 

I sadly came away empty handed but am glad the public recognized this work.

I do have a rare Bukowski poster done by Crumb and signed by Bukowski.

This auction really had a lot of eye opening moments. I think that big money is going towards that one example that makes everyone say Holy S !!!!

Ditko ASM

McFarlane ASM

Lee X Men Cover

Big dollars on I think very representative art. It’s also clear Watchmen joins Killing Joke in the “out of your league” pricing with this auction and the page Will G sold just recently. 
The Ghost Rider Cover Wow!!!!

And again collectors hate reserves.

We want to compete.

That’s gotta drive HA crazy I assume they’d rather have a guarantee sale —but even unsold the Frazetta and Kirby FF 55 brought  drama and beauty to auction.

I figure there are maybe six people in the world who care about such stuff, but

Okay...you, me, who are the other four?

I loved these. But a bit too much in the end :(

I can't believe I missed those, that's right up my alley!

Anyone else have any Bukowski "art" or anything?

I have some and a small library of poems.

I have the poster and two first edition autographed books I bought from Reds Baroque Bookstore back in the eighties.

$10,800 for the Bruce Timm Harley piece. That’s a truly strong number.

When the Bruce Timm factory-made Harley head shot on a sketch cover just doesn’t cut it anymore.

This auction had a king's ransom of Alex Raymond Rip Kirby dailies to choose from.  I had my eye on this one in particular, but unfortunately I wasn't the only one.

If I ever needed a reminder that nice GGA pieces command a premium, this was it.  This particular lot went for $12K.  The next highest Rip Kirby hammered at $3K.

I was thinking this was probably my best chance for the next several years to get a Raymond. I was probably right, but alas, I did not get one.
