So I have one page of Original Comic Art and I’ve always wanted to buy more but they are and can be extremely pricey.
I was looking around the interwebs and found this post about art from Rick Veitch.
Here’s a the opening portion of what’s written there:
“Originally posted in 1998…
One of the best kept secrets of comic book collecting are the pleasures of purchasing and owning Original Comic Book Art. Unlike comic books themselves, which are published in editions of hundreds of thousands and subject to the current vagaries and illusions of ‘price guide’ hucksterism, each page of Original Comic Book Art is a true one-of-a-kind collectible, often personalized by the artist, and eminently suitable for framing and display in home or office. What follows are some FAQ about this interesting and little known slice of authentic pop culture Americana.
— Rick Veitch“
Please follow the link above if you want to read it all. I’m not in the market to buy right now, but I want to be… HAHA
A link to the Boards where this was found: Link.
My only piece of art (currently) can be seen on the Shellback Artworks page at the top right of the page.
Anyone have any tips or tricks or comments about your own purchasing history for original art? Feel free to post them in the comments or send them to me!
Thanks for looking!
