Original Comic Book Art values are through the roof, auction houses are booming with vintage art from popular collectors! Collectors are stepping up, dropping six & seven figures on comic book art from the 70’s, 80’s & 90’s! Rob looks carefully at what is behind the recent original art boom, what is generating the most buzz and why there is no end in sight!
Great episode Rob.
Original art is a fun hobby. Holding an original page that the creators themselves worked on is pretty damn cool. I was fortunate to get a few pieces from my childhood reading days and have them proudly hanging on my walls. The prices have gotten insane in the last 10-15 years, so I’ll happily hold on to the small collection I have and sit back and watch others spend the big bucks.
Never knew about the 30-70 split with the inker. Austin sure is sitting on a gold mine. I hope he does get a little money out of it for himself and donates the rest to a museum.
Somebody donated the art to Amazing Fantasy #15 several years ago. https://www.loc.gov/loc/lcib/0805/spiderman.html
Here’s a cool Frank Miller related tweet.
This comic book stuff is art!
Have a good one!
