Comic Book Art for Sale

Most original art won't entirely fit on my scanner, so many of these pictures are digitally pasted together from two or more scans. I did my best to hide the cut and paste lines whenever possible. If you have questions about the condition of a page of art, please let me know.
NEAL ADAMS
Green Lantern #77

published by DC Comics
June, 1970,
inks by Frank Giacoia
Coming soon.
It would be no exaggeration to say that many people regard the O'Neill/Adams GL/GA series as one of the greatest in comics' history. The value of introducing social relevance into popular comics can't be overstated... IMHO.
DAN ADKINS
Conan #7,
page 1 splash recreation
originally published by Marvel Comics
Original publication July, 1971
Pencils and inks by Adkins
$475
In the early 70's, Barry (not yet Windsor-) Smith set the comics world on fire with his spectacular art on Robert E. Howard's Conan. He started out by trying to imitate Jack Kirby, but in the space of just a few issues he became one of the finest artists in the field.

In today's marketplace, the original splash for Conan #7 would sell for thousands of dollars. I was lucky enough to find this re-creation, by the inker who worked on the book originally. Of course this piece costs only a fraction of what the original would cost, but it displays just as well.

BRIAN BOLLAND
Animal Man #2
cover
published by DC Comics
October, 1988
SOLD to a good home
The Grant Morrison issues of Animal Man were some of the best comics ever written. Morrison took an old, silly character that most people had forgotten about (assuming they had ever heard of him to begin with), and updated the character to be one of the most relevant heroes of the 80's. If you haven't done so, pick up the TPB which reprints the first 9 issues. Then you'll be hooked, and you'll want to hunt down the remainder of #1-24.

Brian Bolland is one of the finest cover artists of the last couple decades. As I understand it, his work is now done digitally, which means these actual old pen-and-ink covers are getting scarcer and scarcer, as they disappear into the hands of private collectors who rarely part with them.

This piece was one of my most prized pieces, until it came time to buy a new house for my family. Then, this piece became an important part of the downpayment on our dream home. I'm glad I owned it, but have no regrets about selling it.

I learned an important lesson from this piece. When you have art framed, be sure to ask a lot of questions and be sure you know what is being done. Here's why: I bought this piece back in the 90's. Thinking it would stay in my collection indefinitely, I took it to a framer in a nearby mall. The framer promised to take good care of it when framing it. I know I paid extra for uv-protective glass. I think I also made sure to order acid-free matting, and made it clear that this was an important piece of art. Fast forward to 2009. After I sold the piece, I took it out of its frame for shipping. I was STUNNED to find that the framer had literally glued the art to a foam core board. This wasn't just a drop of glue, but some sort of adhesive all over the back of the artwork. This was after I had already sold the art that I discovered the framer had caused irreparable damage to the art. If I knew who the guy was, I'd sue him, and I've never sued or seriously considered suing anybody in my life. But that frame shop is long since out of business (no wonder).

Thankfully, the page's buyer was a great guy who said that he'd take care of it. If you ever have any art framed, be sure it's done by somebody you can trust and who has had experience with archival framing. Nuff said!

March, 1977
inks by Frank Giacoia
Coming soon.
When Nova was introduced in the mid-70's, I believed the hype in all of Marvel's lettercols. Marvel presented this character as the second coming of Peter Parker, and I swallowed the ads hook, line and sinker. I thoroughly enjoyed the series for the first dozen issues or so, but eventually it ended up with terrible stories and even worse Infantino art. I did find the character intriguing, and for a while the series kept me on the edge of my seat between issues.

FRANK CHO
University Squared strip
pre-Liberty Meadows strip
Circa 1994
$11,995
This strip is the precursor to Liberty Meadows, and introduces Dean and Brandy and many of the usual Liberty Meadows regulars. Yes, this is Frank Cho original art with Brandy prominently featured. Feast your eyes and turn green with envy, Monkey Boy.

Frank's Liberty Meadows is an absolutely hysterical strip, which is collected regularly into the Liberty Meadows comic book. If you aren't familiar with it, do yourself a favor and pick up the comic, and see today's strip at www.LibertyMeadows.com.

According to Frank Cho, only about 20 University Squared strips exist. The remaining ones were destroyed by Frank himself.

As valuable as vintage Frank Frazetta art from early in his career is, imagine just what it would be worth if there were only 20 pages of it in the world? Ponder that as you consider adding this page to your collection...

STEVE DILLON

MICHAEL GOLDEN
Star Wars #38
page 16
published by Marvel Comics
August, 1980
inks by Terry Austin
$5995
Michael Golden was one of the finest artists of the late 70's and early 80's. He is probably best known for his Micronauts work, which was breathtaking. But for my money, his art got even better when embellished with the fine lines that Terry Austin's inks added. This is from my all-time favorite Star Wars story, which was a one-shot filler issue just prior to Marvel's adaptation of The Empire Strikes Back. This art is framed, and although I gave the framer specific instructions regarding how this should be archivally framed, I have reason to believe that this art may be fully mounted to a piece of foam core board within the frame.

This is the series that got me started collecting. Kirby, of course, is the undisputed King. Kirby's stuff sells for far more than it's worth to me personally, so I was excited to find this mostly-stat (translation: affordable) cover from the days when I read every issue of F.F. cover to cover as soon as it hit the stands.

What If? v1 #35

published by Marvel Comics
October, 1982
Coming soon.
Miller and Janson did some amazing work on Daredevil in his own book, plus they did this What If? issue about the same time. "What if Daredevil became an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.?"
Frank Miller's contributions to the industry, both artistically and in terms of figting for First Amendment rights in the comics world, cannot be overstated. I'd love to own a piece from Miller's work on Sin City, but since he doesn't sell his Sin City art, this Miller/Janson Daredevil page is a nice filler for my collection.

For my money, one of the WORST artists of the bronze age. I loved the Invaders despite, rather than because of, Robbins' work. The series took me back into the world of Golden Age heroes, and took me back to a war which seemed to be clearly good vs. evil.

In the early 1980's, I was a huge Neal Adams fan. I was blown away when this Sienkiewicz guy came along and seemed to be doing a phenomenal Neal Adams impersonation. After searching for a while for Adams-like art from Sienkiewicz, I was excited to find this two-page sequence, which I bought from the kind folks at Fanfare Sports & Entertainment.

Coming soon.
Conan and his female companion are bound for execution. Being a child of 70's Marvels, of course I have always loved the work of Barry Smith on Conan. In just a few short years, Mr. Smith's art style evolved from a mediocre Kirby/Steranko ripoff into some of the most breathtaking fantasy art ever made.
JIM STARLIN

Great silhouette of Thanos, one of the best villains Marvel had... at least until they brought him back to life. Okay, the word "epic" is ridiculously overused in this industry. But the Captain Marvel/Warlock/Thanos stories that Starlin did, culminating in Thanos's death in Marvel Two-in-One Annual #2, are an extraordinary example of a masterfully constructed epic, literally.
