Original Art - Solar: Man of the Atom #8 cover

One of the reasons I started this was so that there would be somewhere I could store all the awesome original black and white cover line art scans I ran across. I'm making some progress on a complete collection of black and white ink art posts of every pre-UNITY Valiant comic. So far I've got X-O Manowar #1X-O Manowar #2X-O Manowar #4 and Harbinger #6. Here is another post (sort of) in that series. This time it's the cover art for Solar: Man of the Atom by Stan Drake and Don Perlin. Behold the cover in all its black and white glory:


Valiant Market - X-O Manowar #1 page 26

A new post in my series on recent interesting Valiant sales (you can find the first in the series here, the second here and the third here). This one was suggested by a reader so much thanks to him for pointing this sale out! These posts are meant to track original art sales of pages that are in high demand and appear very rarely such as pages from UNITY or Deathmate Prologue, splash pages etc.

Today we have a page from X-O Manowar #1 by Barry Windsor-Smith. A little while ago I posted another page from the same book, the very next page in the book in fact. That page sold for a final price of $1,525. Today's page is equally exciting, has a little less X-O Manowar but a little more action and our first clear look at a Spider Alien face! Check out the beautiful page here:


Today's page sets a new record at $1,625 plus shipping on ebay. That is by far the highest price I have ever seen for an interior page of Valiant Barry Windsor-Smith art. Higher than his splash pages have sold for. More than double this Deathmate page he did with Jim Lee. Almost double this UNITY page, which is more exciting, from a more important book and is one of just 16. And in line with the price of page 27 from the same book.
