Three original artworks commissioned by Marvel UK in the 1980s, featuring an assortment of superheroes, all drawn by Mick Austin, go under the hammer at Heritage Auctions later this week.
Just like the Doctor Who pages featuring Peter Davison’s Fifth Doctor we featured recently, the cover and poster art on offer come from the collection of Julius Howe and, once again, the starting prices are incredibly low, perhaps because the artworks are UK, not US commissions.
These three artworks just a few of the original comic boards on offer in the 11th – 13th March 2022 International Original Art and Anime Signature Auction #7265, which also features six Doctor Who pages by Austin, art by Arthur Adams, Lee Bermejo, Robert Crumb, Alan Davis and Paul Neary, Carlos Ezquerra – the title pages of “Strontium Dog” from Starlord No. 8 – and a Tintin artwork by Hergé, bids already at $28,000, plus art by Jamie Hewlett, Milo Manara, Moebius, Teshirogi Takashi, and many, many more.
