Comic Art Sale and Exhibit

July 15, 2021 - October 23, 2021

Comic book and comic strip art has always been popular. This art resonates with readers and collectors all over the world, young and old. Interest in comics as both a creative outlet and an investment is at an all time high.

Prices for this type of art have increased steadily over the last 50 years. Forbes Magazine has done articles on the wisdom of investing in this asset class. Auction prices are achieving new highs every year. Some comic art has sold for over one million dollars.

The Society of Illustrators is pleased to host an exhibition and sale of over 180 pieces of original comic book and strip art, with examples that date from 1935 up to the modern era.

This show features art from different comic genres including super hero, strip art, EC, Marvel and DC art, related paintings, underground and alternative art, and more.

Prices for these originals vary from $500 to over $250,000. We believe there is something available for every budget and taste. Every piece of art in this exhibition will be for sale.

With art for sale by Jack Kirby, Frank Frazetta, John Romita, Neal Adams, Jeffrey Jones, Bernie Wrightson, Michael Kaluta, Barry Windsor-Smith, Moebius, Robert Crumb, Winsor McCay, Wally Wood, Joe Kubert, Vaughn Bode, Sean Murphy, Steranko, Frank Miller, Marie Severin, Graham Ingels, Bob Kane, George Perez, Gene Colan, Mike Mignola, Steve Ditko, John Byrne and many many more!!
