ComicLink Still Accepting Featured Auction Consignments

Posted on 2/1/2012

“It is not too late to get your high quality comic books and comic art placed in ComicLink’s Winter Featured Auction,” reports ComicLink Consignment Director Douglas Gillock.

The auction goes live on February 21st and the preview will continue to grow right up until the launch date. This is our very first Featured Auction of 2012 and it will spotlight nothing but material specifically selected for its superior quality and desirability. Every bidder interested in a vintage comic book or original art item will be watching it, and it is a prime venue that will give sellers maximum exposure and promotion for their best items.

To reserve auction placement in the Winter Featured Auction and other upcoming ComicLink events (the March Focused Auction is also coming up), simply email your prospective auction list, or call 617-517-0062 option 1 to speak with Douglas Gillock, Jason Crosby, Sean Goodrich, Josh Nathanson or other members of the ComicLink Team.

"Already lined up are top highlights Captain America #100 CGC 9.9 and Iron Man & Sub-Mariner #1 CGC 9.9, which are nearly unfathomable in this grade”, says ComicLink President Josh Nathanson. “Also exceptional is Showcase #22 CGC 9.0, which is the highest graded example (one of three in grade) of the first Silver Age Green Lantern, Amazing Spider-Man #2 CGC 9.6 (one of three in grade), and Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1 CGC 9.8 (also one of three in grade), which came out in the summer of 1964, when Amazing Spider-Man #13 and #14 were published. Also just in — one of the rarest of the rare — Pep Comics #22 CGC 6.5 (restored). There are many other incredible books already consigned — too many to go into detail about here — but another one that deserves a special detailed mention is the only double cover example of Incredible Hulk #181, and it is a 9.8! Original art-wise, a couple of standouts include Jack Kirby’s Avengers #3 page featuring Hulk and Sub-Mariner trying to wrestle away Thor’s hammer — as if they can hold it — as well as a great, ultra early Neal Adams Brave and the Bold #76 cover which is only the third Batman cover penciled and inked entirely by Adams. An incredible Amazing Spider-Man page from issue #34 was recently added, which is one of the best battle action pages for a Spidey villain we’ve seen. It is page two and the content rivals the splash page of that issue. We also have many other exceptional original art items within the preview and incoming – so stay tuned!."
