Jack B Quick was a character created by Alan Moore and Kevin Nowlan for the Tomorrow Stories ABC anthology series published by DC Comics/Wildstorm in the late nineties. The character was a child genus living in small-town USA (literally) with his various inventions and challenges to conventional physics, causing all manner of frustration for his parents and townsfolk.
And right now, Heritage Auctions has the original art for the entire first Jack B Quick story, eight pages worth, up and it's only at $2,200 right now which is an insanely low price for eight pages of original comic book artwork from a) a Kevin Nowlan short story b) an Alan Moore short story c) the original first appearance of the character and d) a story that won the Eisner Award for Best Artist in 2000. $260 a page is very, very low… and it has four days to go. I wonder how high it will climb – especially after I've given it a little attention. Here's how Heritage Auctions lists the set on their website – and it ends on July 10th.
Here is the official listing for the auction which ends on July 10th:
