Alex Raymond pencils, inks, signed and dedicated; 08/22/50; image size 18.5" x 5.5"
After the end of WWII revered strip artist Alex Raymond went back to work in the industry he helped shape, but instead of relying on tried and true characters he'd illustrated before the war, he started up a new title, that strip was called Rip Kirby, and it featured a suave, intelligent detective who solved crimes with his wits more often than with his brawn. The popular strip would go on to run for over four decades, winning over a loyal readership right up until its cancellation in 1999.

The strip on offer here at auction shows Kirby negotiating with a suspected gold digger on a beach as lovely women in bathing suits provide a welcome distraction in two of the panels. Raymond's obvious talents are on full display, as his veteran skills move the story along from panel to panel, providing the reader with cinematic angles and transmitting complex plot points with a minimum of effort. The page is signed and dedicated by Raymond.

Pg. 17; Herb Trimpe pencils, Pablo Marcos inks; 10.5" x 15. 75"
In issue #7 of Super-Villain Team-Up, Dr. Doom has just sent his enemies, the Fantastic Four, home from Latveria after making a diplomatic arrangement with Henry Kissinger, meanwhile, Namor has become enslaved by Doom and forced to do his bidding. Into this tense situation a new superhero arrives, the Shroud, who has spent his entire life training himself to physical and mental perfection and plotting to kill Victor Von Doom in a bid to vault himself into superhero stardom. This page shows Shroud confronting Doom, and challenging him to a fight to the death, which leads to a slugfest of epic proportions.

Herb Trimpe's pencils and Pablo Marcos' inks combine seamlessly to breathe life into this battle page, as Doom and the young upstart, Shroud, duke it out. The two veteran artists bring the action to the fore with skills honed over years in the industry. Fans of Bronze Age art will surely drool over this amazing page, and with rumors swirling about a Dr. Doom movie, snapping up this page which prominently features the Lord of Latveria in four of the five panels is a shrewd move.

Hal Forrest pencils, inks and signed; 03/16/30; image size 22" x 28.25"
Tailspin Tommy was the first comic strip to cash in on America's obsession with aviation in the early part of the 20th century, thanks in no small part to the fervor surrounding Charles Lindbergh, many other heroic flyers would follow in the funny pages and comic books but Tailspin Tommy was the first, and many consider the best, of the airborne heroes to make a mark on comic readers.

This entry in the series shows Tommy meeting one of his idols, Inspector McDowall of the RCMP who hires the pilot to ferry him to his ranch in the Canadian wilderness. The lush, flowing penmanship of Hal Forrest is on display on this engaging strip, which is a large piece of art, that has been hand painted with brilliant watercolors and was signed by Forrest.

Hal Forrest pencils, inks and signed; colored by unknown artist; 1/22/1932; image size 22" x 29"
Tailspin Tommy was the first comic strip to cash in on America's obsession with aviation in the early part of the 20th century, thanks in no small part to the fervor surrounding Charles Lindbergh, many other heroic flyers would follow in the funny pages and comic books but Tailspin Tommy was the first, and many consider the best, of the airborne heroes to make a mark on comic readers.

In this episode of Tailspin Tommy, the titular hero and his pal Skeets have to climb out on the exterior of a dirigible to repair a fin that was damaged by a scrape with a mountain during a bout of inclement weather. The attempted daredevil mending job takes a bad turn as Skeets tumbles off the airship and hangs by a safety rope. Forrest was equally deft at handling action scenes as he was with conversational plot-driven fare, and his work on this page is exceptional. The piece is large format and has been hand colored by an unknown artist.

In this action-packed sequence, Tommy and Skeeter do battle with an enraged polar bear after they made an emergency landing on an ice floe. Hal Forrest was a versatile artist, able to portray hard-boiled action and romantic plots with the same amount of gravitas, and this page is filled to the brim with some serious survival exploits as the two aviators are pitched in a life or death battle with the humongous carnivore. The page is hand painted by an unknown artist and signed by Hal Forrest.

Pg. 29, Jack Kirby pencils, Joe Sinnott inks; 14" x 21"
After facing down M.O.D.O.K. Cap and Agent-13 beat a hasty retreat from A.I.M. headquarters, only to be harassed and slowed down by a couple of "beekeepers." Agent-13 delivers a hard "FZAT" to one of the baddies, then Cap uses a well-placed shield toss to stymie the remaining A.I.M. team members and prevent their escape. Jack Kirby places the reader squarely in the middle of the action as this page moves at a rapid pace. One can almost feel the race against time our protagonists are subjected to, as, once again, Kirby proves why he is called the King and will retain that title for all time.

This page from Tarzan and the Beast Master shows Russ Manning working in two modes, jungle action and the possibly more difficult task of making conversation compelling. It all seems simple for Manning as he keeps the story moving consistently across the page. Feast your eyes on his sumptuous framing and shading choices, there is a lot more going on here than is evident at first. A beautiful page from a true talent.

In this third page from Tarzan and the Beast Master in this auction, once again there is a mixture of action and conversation, as the Waziri tribe threaten the road crew and Tarzan has to intervene to prevent further violence. The Lord of the Jungle is informed that his son has gone missing in the final panel, and it is a testament to Manning's talents that he can put all of this information into one page without it seeming cluttered, we are truly proud to have so many wonderful Russ Manning pages in this auction, and we are sure his fans will be equally pleased.

Russ Manning pencils, inks and signed; image size 12" x 17"; A Monster Man holds Tarzan in the air as he brandishes his knife
Titled "Tarzan and the Monster Men" this cover illustration by Russ Manning is an impressive stand-alone piece of comic art, the action up front shows the King of the Jungle being thrown around like a rag doll by a misshapen humanoid, while he brandishes his knife in an attempt to defend himself. The background is a mixture of flames and sci-fi contraptions, which completes the pulpy atmosphere on this piece, which is probably unpublished art by Manning. "The Monster Men" is the title of an Edgar Rice Burroughs book, but research has revealed no information on the existence of a comic book version from the period this piece was created, making it an even more desirable collectible.

Pg. 12; Jack Kirby pencils, Vince Colletta inks; image size 12" x 19.5"
Kang's creature feature of the month, the Growing Man, squares off with the Mighty Thor in this thrilling issue. This interior half-splash has bombastic panel-to-panel combat scenes, complete with onomatopoeia action as Thor bludgeons Growing Man with his trusty Mjolnir. Kirby's at his finest illustrating superhero skirmishes and a piece like this improves with every viewing! The King churned out pages at an astonishing rate, and each unique piece is as impressive as the next. There is a veritable smorgasbord of Jack's work in this auction, and his devoted fans are sure to be chomping at the bit to bid on these beauties.

This page from Thor #154 has the Thunder God speeding off to check up on his beau, Sif, as she is convalescing in a hospital bed after surviving a battle between Thor and his brother, Loki. The story depicted in these panels shows the softer side of Jack Kirby, who was equally adept in his handling of cosmic battles and quiet moments such as this one. Vince Colletta's deft inks add to the gravity of this emotional page. This break in the action gives readers a moment to catch their breath and it's passages like this one that helped bond Marvel fans to their favorite heroes, showing their vulnerabilities thereby drawing us deeper into their tales of heroism.

Jack Kirby pencils, Vince Colletta inks, signed by Stan Lee; image size 10" x 15.5"
RAGNAROK! "We know each other. He's a friend from work"
Ragnarok, according to Norse Mythology, is basically the end times, akin to Revelations in the bible. It involves the deaths of many of the gods above, while natural disasters wipe out the Earth below leading to rebirth once the devastation has concluded. The cover of Thor #157 takes on the remarkable mission of portraying the mayhem of an apocalyptic event, here rendered by none other than the "King" himself, Jack Kirby. The epic themes of the Thor series gave Kirby the freedom to go above and beyond the scope of many of his other Silver Age creations, employing more grandiose flourishes, the title allowed Kirby to grow as an illustrator and sharpen his abilities far beyond those of mere mortals.

The action on this cover shows Thor being crushed in the gigantic claw of Mangog, a creature that draws his power from hatred, chaos, and destruction, and, as is evident on this cover, there is plenty of fuel on which the demonic monster can feed. Many of Kirby's Thor covers tend to keep the God of Thunder off the center of the page and away from the majority of the action. Nobody really knows why the artist would shy away from making the main character dominant on his own covers, but this issue is an important exception. Thor is featured in full, right dab smack in the middle of this magnificent piece of art.

Jack Kirby art is always a solid investment and a huge point of interest in our auctions. When you add in the connection between this cover and the blockbuster film "Thor: Ragnarok" this piece will surely draw plenty of attention before the hammer drops, and we are not talking about Mjolnir here folks.

21pgs of 22 pg color guide for 'Beyond Reason's Edge" from Thor V2 #23; signed by Gregory Wright; certification letter and comic included
John Romita Jr.'s run on Thor includes some of the most memorable Thor stories in recently memory, and this one is from the highly regarded story arc featuring Thanos and Mangog. This near complete issue (missing page 8) features Gregory Wright's coloring as Thor and Firelord try to catch up to Thanos and Mangog, who are storming across the galaxy terrorizing planets. This issue includes the first appearance of the Millenium Monarch planet as well as the Guardian of the Millenium Monarch, as well as appearances by Rigellian Recorder, Orikal, and Odin himself! Of course, Thanos and Mangog are in there too. Face front, True Believers!

Prior to the digital era, color guides were used to inform the printer on how to accurately print the colors of the comic book. These are ONE OF A KIND pieces of the production process of each comic book. Although they vary in size, most color guides were normal note-book paper sized photocopies of the comic book's original art, that were provided to the staff colorist, who would hand-color, water-color, or paint the color guides. The work was pain-staking and required a high level of attention to detail, as well as consistency! Often times a coding system of numbers and/or letters was used to indicate specific colors, shades, and information that was vital to ensuring the printer accurately printed the comic's coloration. These are sometimes drawn right onto the color guides themselves, and in some instances the colorists would mark them up on an acetate or rice paper overlay. Color guides are a unique, one-of-a-kind collectible aspect of the production of a comic book, and as such they have historic value, because they provide insight into the studio and artist's vision of how the comic book should appear in print. Often times the color guide colors are more vibrant and richer than the actual printed comic book, since colors often degraded when printed onto the cheap newsprint paper that comics were traditionally printed on. In addition, some of the nuances of shading and color gradation were sometimes more complex than the print house was able to recreate (or cared to take the time and effort to recreate) and so the color guides often have a truer sense of what the comic should look like, than the actual comic book itself.

In today's digital age, color guides are no longer used, and therefore, vintage color guides are garnering more interest from collectors who are looking for a unique piece of a particular comic book's history and production process to own.

Redondo's skill is evident in the fine detail of the octopus as well as the elements of the ship where the action takes place. Bronze Age art is still relatively affordable making pieces from the period a hot commodity in recent auctions.

Joe Kubert pencils and inks; 10" x 15"
This Joe Kubert cover revels in the early 80s obsession with science-fiction that had swept over popular culture thanks in no small part to the original "Star Wars" movie trilogy, it seemed that far-out space action was everywhere, on the small screen to the movie theaters, adult-themed sci-fi mags like Heavy Metal, Epic Illustrated, and Omni were commonplace, and the trickle-down effect touched almost every corner of the comic book world. Characters like Warlord and Killraven existed in worlds that mashed up barbarian warriors with spaceships and lasers, even horror anthologies like the Unexpected got in on the fun. This Kubert cover with a little girl in pigtails looming over a trio of miniature spacemen is a fun and strangely compelling illustration. Generally speaking, Kubert art from any era is a popular commodity and this page is no exception.

John Watkiss inks; image size 8.25" x 11.5"
Armed survivors on patrol are seen from above.

While the now iconic television series has enthralled millions, its origins began in illustration. While comic books can be quite cinematic in structure, adapting them to the screen still proves problematic for many films and tv series. For instance, certain elements that worked great for the comic, might read differently to a television audience. This collection of production art is a rare opportunity to own official Walking Dead artwork from the talented John Watkiss, featuring alternative concepts of previously known characters and scenes from the comics and new ones made only for the TV show.

John Watkiss (1961-2017) was a British artist, known for his painting and his work in comics and film production. His career led him from cover artist for graphic novels to storyboard artist and character designer. The artist has collaborated with numerous high profile studios on projects including Tarzan, Atlantis, Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, and Sherlock Holmes. Watkiss' work has been featured in the British National Portrait Gallery and The Ford Motor Company Museum.
