Earlier this week, we looked at the sales on eBay of a number of sketches purporting to be from famous, often distant comic book creators and cartoonists from a Dutch seller. As well as expert testimony doubting the provenance of a number of those pieces, we also had confirmation from John Romita Jr that sketches intended to be by his father John Romita Sr were fake, though the signature looked very realistic.
Well, today Jim Steranko has confirmed to Bleeding Cool that, yes, the sketch that he is meant to have drawn is indeed a forgery, telling us "Big time fake! Otherwise, Happy Holidays!" Thank you Jim.
Though to be fair, genuine Jim Steranko sketch for $55? You get what you pay for.
Nice signature, though.
