ComicLink is accepting comic book and comic and fantasy original art consignments for their Summer Featured Auction which launches in August as well as for their next Focused Auction, which begins on July 11, 2018. “Now is an excellent time to consign. The summer auction will be one of our biggest of the year and we are already busy posting exciting highlights to the growing auction preview,” ComicLink CEO Josh Nathanson said.
To reserve auction placement, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (617) 517-0062 (option 1 for the sales department). Upfront cash advances are available upon receipt of consignments.
“While it is still early in the process, the Summer Featured Auction is already shaping up to be a blockbuster,” ComicLink founder and President Josh Nathanson said. “Early consignments include major Silver Age keys such as Fantastic Four #1 (first Fantastic Four and origin) CGC 9.0 (as well as a CGC 6.5) and the most attractive Amazing Fantasy #15 (first Spider-Man and origin) CGC 7.0 (CVA Exceptional).”
There are also major Bronze Age keys such as Incredible Hulk #180 CGC 9.8 and #181 (cameo and full Wolverine appearances) CGC 9.8, Giant-Size X-Men #1 CGC 9.8 Signature Series and Marvel Feature #1 (first Defenders) CGC 9.8. There is also a wide range of comic books from the Golden Age that will be featured in the auction. One singular Golden Age gem that will be in the auction is the only known Wonder Woman #1 ashcan, which predated Wonder Woman #1 by many months, and has been certified at CGC 8.5. From key and high grade Golden Age to exciting esoteric issues, the auction will have something for every collector of issues from this important era.
Original art highlights already consigned include one of the most important pages from Infinity Gauntlet #1 ‒ a full page George Pérez Thanos splash where Thanos first wields the power of the Infinity Gauntlet; they have the best page from Todd McFarlane and Greg Capullo’s Spawn #33 which is the full page Spawn vs. Violator battle splash; also a Todd McFarlane double page spread from Spider-Man #8 featuring great images of Spider-Man in action; the Rich Buckler/Klaus Janson finale page from Jungle Action #6 featuring Kill-Monger, in his first appearance issue, throwing Black Panther down a waterfall ‒ a scene faithfully recreated in the Black Panther movie; a significant first Scott Lang, Ant-Man page from John Byrne’s Marvel Premiere #47; a Frank Brunner page from the legendary Howard the Duck #1 featuring Howard and Beverly as barbarians; the Ed Hannigan wraparound cover the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe #10 starring Spider-Man; and a Frank Miller Sin City: The Big Fat Kill splash page.
