I Like What You Got (Original Art)

I didn’t see anywhere we are posting original art pickups.

I grabbed Darth Maul Son of Dathomir #4 page 7 by Juan Frigeri:


I’ve been wanting to grab some art. Just wasnt sure where to go or actually what to grab. Btwn Bagley. Mcfarlane. Larsen and other Spiderverse artist I might be priced out lol.

This was $225 which I thought was a deal. It’s a sought after canon issue, but not a big name artists like you just listed, so attainable.

Ive got some nice pieces, Ill share some in here from time to time. A lot of stuff has just gotten prohibitively expensive over the last 5 years.

Picked up a couple of years ago for $60 each, original art the artist submitted to obtain more work but never utilized by the publisher. Since not actually in a comic was really affordable and very detailed. The artist Andrew Mangum has done covers for Evil Ernie and had a passion for the character. Unpublished original art is an interesting niche.


I was looking through splash page and they have some great Spidey stuff in the $200-300 range.

Some Quinones stuff. If you don’t care about caliber of name, you can get some great looking stuff for relatively low.

Some might remember this as the bottom panel was used for the incentive cover for Marvel Comics Presents #6 2nd print.


This page features the 1st ever appearance (aka as “birth page”) of Spider-Punk (Hobart Brown).

So, I spec on comic books and channel the profits to original art. However, in the 15 or so years that I have done this, I have made about three times more money from original art than from comic books. I might not be much of a comic book speculator after all!


Finally hung my Jenny Frison OA for the Seven Secrets 4 cover. Sorry for the glare.

Her process is a little different. She does the 11x17 pencils. Then prints and does the shading before the-scanning and coloring digitally.


Just some covers I own


Some splash pages


Very cool. I saw some purely digital “original art” ring offered from digital artists and the draw didn’t make sense to me. This, however, I can get behind.

These are all absolutely nuts.


This is a coup I wish I would have known about and jumped on:


Was asking $3.5k. I passed.

Ok, a Star Wars one. Star Wars: Dark Times #17. It was marked as a prelim but the lines look no different from the published cover.
