The art session features highlights by some of comics’ best artists. Beginning with the cover to Incredible Hulk #154 by Herb Trimpe, Trimpe’s Hulk covers are among the most desirable of any Bronze Age Marvel artwork, with none having sold publicly since 2015. Next is an extraordinary page by Wally Wood, one of the finest draftsman ever to put pen to paper, from the story EC Confidential from Weird Science #21. This page, easily the best in the story, shows a team of Aliens disintegrating the staff of EC Comics, including Wood himself. You will not find a finer example of a Wood EC panel page. We also have a page from Amazing Spider-Man #325 by Todd McFarlane featuring Spider-Man and the Red Skull that has not been on the market since it was originally sold in 1990, and a rare Erik Larsen page from Amazing Spider-Man #336.


Additionally, we have two stunning Conan the Barbarian pieces from Gil Kane, the cover to issue #12 and the title splash from #18, the splash page to Mister Miracle #13 by Jack Kirby, and a great page from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ Watchmen #9 along with its matching color guide. Not to be overshadowed, we have the incredibly rare cover to Captain America #3 by Steve Epting up for bidding, from Epting and writer Ed Brubaker’s critically acclaimed first arc on the title that introduced the Winter Soldier to the world. Epting’s Captain America covers almost never come up for sale and are highly sought after.


We’re also thrilled to offer some more extraordinary works of art, including a great page from Marvel Comics Presents #121 featuring Wolverine and Venom by Sam Kieth, a Galactus splash page from Silver Surfer: Judgment Day by John Buscema, a page from Werewolf by Night #5 penciled and inked by Mike Ploog, as well as a complete 9-page story by Ploog from Police Action #3.
