It's been brought to my attention that a large block of original comic art has been put up for auction over at Comiclink.com. On it's own this wouldn't be much of a news story, but when you start looking at the artist and comic available, it becomes more interesting. John Byrne, Frank Cho, Steve Ditko, Dave Cockrum, Barry Windsor-Smith, Gene Colan, David Finch, Michael Golden, Don Heck, Gil Kane, Jack Kirby, Jim Lee, Jae Lee, Frank Miller, George Perez, Alex Ross, John Romita Jr., Tim Sale and the list goes on and on. And the pieces range from as far back as 1945 to the last few years.
A double-page Jack Kirby spread from Captain America #199 that is currently going for just over $8k.
The Absolute Dark Knight cover by Frank Miller is going for over $17k right now.
Dave Cockrum's cover for Iron Fist #12 is currently at $17,750.
How about page #3 from House of Mystery #236 by Steve Ditko for only $500.
One of my personal favorite Michael Golden covers for She-Hulk #8 is up to almost $8k.
And a 1945 World War II cover to Batman #30 by the late Dick Sprang is currently at $45k.
Or the more modern first page to All-Star Batman & Robin the Boy Wonder #6 by Jim Lee is going for $4k.
And a Hulk #8 Variant Cover by Frank Cho is currently standing at $961.00.
There is a two-page splash from New Mutants #98, the very first issue with Deadpool by Rob Liefeld and it's going for $3,500.
And continuing with Deadpool, there is the Barry Windsor-Smith cover for #60 going for $3,600.
There is a John Romita Jr. cover for Spider-Man #586 going for the wee price of $2,650.
And if it wasn't already going for over $17k, I would seriously bid on the cover to Captain America #189 by Gil Kane as it was the first comic I ever owned.
