HERITAGE OCTOBER ANIMATION ART AUCTION:

The Complete Story of Snow White Book With Spectacular Walt Disney Autograph to Roy Williams (1937). This first edition of the Harper Brothers book is boldly signed "To Roy Williams -- My Best, Walt Disney." A large bold signature. The book has wear and edge scuffing, but this is Williams' personal copy, hand-signed by Walt Disney. Considering the more than 40-year career that Williams had at Walt Disney Studios and his importance to the Mickey Mouse Club, this personal copy of his important Snow White book, at an early point in Mr. Williams' career, is a very important piece of Disney history. From the Roy Williams Estate.

HERITAGE JULY 18 BEGINNING COMICS & COMICS ART AUCTION:

Barry Windsor-Smith StormWatch Unused Cover Original Art (Image, 1993). This piece is an amazing little mystery. It appears to be an unused cover for the 1993 StormWatch Special #1. The logo can be seen very faintly in blue pencil along the top. And on the left, just above the BWS signature, in blue pencil it says "Sword & Sorcery Comes To Image". Graphite, ink, and blue pencil on Bristol board with an image size of 16.25" x 18.5". And this is an amazing two-fer deal! Because on the backside of the page is a rough blue pencil design for the layout of the Eternal Warrior / Archer & Armstrong double-cover from 1993 (Valiant Comics). So that is a possible clue to the date for the front side. Sometime after March 1993. Very slight yellowing on left side, but piece is in Excellent condition.

Bernie Wrightson Twisted Tales #2 Cover Original Art (Pacific Comics, 1983). Books published by upstart independent comic publisher Pacific Comics featured some of the best covers of the early eighties. Here's one of the very best -- a Twisted Tales cover that rivals anything EC published during their magnificent heyday. Artist Bernie Wrightson proved himself a modern-day Graham Ingels with this "ghastly" image of a "headhunter" (and foot, and hand), with his bloody ax ready to do more mayhem. Wow! The art is in ink over graphite on illustration board, with an approximate image area of 15" x 17.5", and includes a mock-up masthead (which was changed for the actual printed cover, which also expanded the art slightly); both the art and masthead are mounted to a backing board. The art is in Excellent condition. The art is signed, and dated 1982. C'mon, let's get Twisted!

Bruce Timm - Catwoman Illustration Original Art (1995). This is the cat's Meow! It's a lovely and dangerous looking Catwoman in that retro Bruce Timm style that made him a fan favorite artist. Signed and dated in the lower left of image area. Color marker on 8.5" x 11" paper with an image size of 4.75" x 8". There are a couple of corners that have the faintest of crease lines, but no where near image area. This is in Excellent condition.

Alex Ross Project Superpowers #2 Cover Original Art (Dynamite Entertainment, 2008). Only the second Alex Ross cover from this series that we have even offered. The series resurrected a number of classics Golden Age heroes who had been unpublished for a long time. This cover spotlights the Death-Defying Devil (name changes due to copyright conflict) and the Flame. Features the famous Hollywood sign burning in the background. Painted cover is beautifully framed with a glass front and an inner matting size of 12" x 18". Alex Ross originally signed it in the flames in bottom left. Frame has some scratches and scuffs, but artwork is in Excellent condition.

LOAC Seeks Vintage Wonder Woman, Batman Strips for Collected Editions
Do you have any old Batman or Wonder Woman comic strips in your collection? If so, you might be in a position to provide a great service to your fellow collectors.

Dean Mullaney, Bruce Canwell and their team at The Library of American Comics (LOAC) are looking for a few Batman Sunday pages from 1968 (June 9, 23, and 30, and July 7, 14, 21, and 28), and just one Wonder Woman daily (November 19, 1945).

---------------------------------------------

Allison Baker has joined IDW Publishing as Director of Operations. She will coordinate and expedite the company’s production schedule, working with their Editorial, Production and Games units.

She is the co-publisher and co-founder of publisher Monkeybrain, Inc. She previously served as Director of Operations for Robert Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios from 2002 to 2005 and as Director of Production at Joe Slade White and Co.

-----------------------------------
Small Press Publishers, what makes the difference between an item that will get news coverage, previews, interviews and what doesn’t? A lot of publishers have no idea what to submit to the press, how to submit it and why they are being overlooked for coverage.

Comics journalist Rik Offenberger (First Comics News, Archie Comics) moderates this panel on just what it takes to get coverage with the comic journalists themselves telling you what they are looking for in your submission. Panelists include (in alphabetical order) Albert Ching (Comics Book Resources), Amy Chu (DC Comics), Holly Golightly (BroadSword Comics), Glenn Hauman (Comic Mix), Rich Johnston (Bleeding Cool), Alan Kistler (The Mary Sue), Francis Sky (First Comics News), Tanya Tate (First Comics News), J.C. Vaughn (Scoop), Josh Waldrop (M1W Entertainment) and Bryan Young (Huffington Post, Big Shiny Robot). Find out what it takes to self-promote and make a significant impact on your ability to sell your comic.

This panel will be held Thursday, July 24, 2014 at Comic-Con International: San Diego from 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM in Room 8 of the San Diego Convention Center.

------------------------------------
The best way is usually the straightforward way.

So, we screwed up last week with our obit of the late, great writer Richard Matheson.

The frustrating thing is that pretty much everything we wrote about him was true. Except he died a year earlier.

Every six months of so some celebrity – most frequently it’s Bob Denver – dies a tragic death on Facebook, sometimes long, long after they’ve passed. And we’re among the people who enjoy pointing this sort of thing out to our friends.

Usually.

But when, on the anniversary of his passing a rather knowledgeable friend of ours posted the message about Mr. Matheson, we jumped on it.

Our apologies to our readers.

TURNING POINTS by Maggie Thompson

Here’s the latest installment of Maggie Thompson’s ongoing look at important beginnings, middles and ends, this time for July 3-10, 2014…

100 years ago July 10, 1914 Superman co-creator artist Joe Shuster is born.

95 years ago July 7, 1919 Actor Jon Pertwee is born. As the third Doctor in Doctor Who, he appears in comics stories about the character.

65 years ago July 6, 1949 Writer Tony Franco is born.

65 years ago July 7, 1949 1990s DC Retailer Representative Rich Markow is born.

60 years ago July 3, 1954 Inker Arne Starr is born.

-------------------------------------------

DC Comics; October-November 1972
Cover by Jack Kirby

Title: “The Last Boy on Earth!”
Synopsis: Kamandi leaves his grandfather to explore the surface world — a world where humans are now beasts and intelligent animals rule!

Writer: Jack Kirby
Penciler: Kirby
Inker: Mike Royer

Review: While Kamandi, the Last Boy on Earth would eventually display Jack Kirby’s trademark inventiveness, this first issue is far too derivative of the Planet of the Apes movies. Sentient animals who worship a nuclear warhead? Check. A kind, animal scientist who takes pity on a strangely intelligent human? Yup. And, of course, a partially submerged Statue of Liberty as a clue to the world that was? It’s got that, too. But the King is in his element here, and a one-page map of “Kamandi’s Continent” hints of more creative adventures to come. In the meantime, strong Kirby art carries the day.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Across a three-issue arc that took place in Green Arrow Vol. 2 #46-48, the Emerald Archer teamed up with a group of people who were investigating poachers. As adventure with a dose of political content, the story line too often gets bypassed when talking about Mike Grell’s long and consistent run on the title.

In 1987 Grell took the character of Oliver Queen and gave him a depth and sense of detail that had been missing from the character for the majority of his career. Prior to Grell’s redefinition of Queen, the archer had essentially become the two-dimensional, knee-jerk liberal of the DC universe.

His work on The Longbow Hunters mini-series set a new standard for the hero. Gone were trick arrows and the old costume. They were replaced by a more calloused heart, a natural cynicism, and the darker costume, which seemed to be designed to emphasize the shadow, both morally and literally, in which he now traveled.

----------------------------------------------------

Total sales from Pedigree Comics’ 10th anniversary Grand Auction were $637,622, and with post-auction deals in the works the total number should approach $700,000, according to Doug Schmell, the company’s President and CEO.

“I was extremely pleased with the final auction results. The Silver Age Marvels did very well, as usual, with many new record sales plus there were some records broken on some of the late Silver Age - early Bronze Age DCs,” he said.

“The bidding got very intense on the super high grade books (9.6 and higher) and many of these books sold beyond my expectations. There were many brand new bidders, first timers who had never bid on my site before and it’s good to see new blood in this market,” he said.

----------------------------------------------
It’s often said that everything old is new again. This certainly seems to be the case as all things from the 1980s seem to be all the rage again. Remember He-Man and the Masters of the Universe? This Saturday morning cartoon powerhouse was an instant hit with kids when first released back in 1983 and the series and its characters have since found new life as collectibles with those same kids who have since entered adulthood and look to reclaim their youth.

While there have been a few re-launches of the toyline over the years (including one specially designed for collectors), the original series is the one most fondly remembered. This fond remembrance has helped boost the value of these relatively recent toys (if you can call 25 to 30 years old recent at this point) amongst collectors. It turns out reclaiming one’s youth does come with a price.

In the current Hake’s Americana & Collectibles auction (now online), we are offering numerous Masters of the Universe items, including carded action figures, vehicles and boxed playsets including Castle Grayskull, Snake Mountain, The Evil Horde’s Fright Zone and the very rare sealed boxed Eternia playset, widely considered among collectors to be the holy grail of Master of the Universe collectibles.

 HAKE'S JULY 15-17 CLOSING AUCTION:

STAR WARS "MICRO COLLECTION: BOBA FETT UNPAINTED 4-UP HARDCOPY PROTOTYPE

Kenner's "Star Wars Micro Collection" was a short-lived toy series issued in the early 1980s. While each production Micro figure was just over an inch in height, during pre-production, the Micro figures were sculpted in either wax or acetate at four times their production size, in order to allow their sculptors to achieve a greater degree of detail. Offered here is the unpainted 4-Up Hardcopy Boba Fett figure from the "Bespin Freeze Chamber" playset. This is actual example shown in the Limited Edition slipcase edition of "Tomart's Price Guide To Worldwide Star Wars Collectibles." (see Tom Tumbusch's statement on this piece below). Prototype stands 5.5" tall and depicts the popular Star Wars bounty hunter holding his blaster rifle. Acetate figure is lt. blue in color w/some aging to front half and some small scattered spots of discoloration to top of helmet, shoulder and hand. VF overall. Comes w/matching production Boba Fett Micro figure. NM. Very rare pre-production prototype.

BRONZE AGE FANTASTIC FIRST: Spider-Man, Captain America, the Incredible Hulk and Spider-Woman

Marvel, 1981
Cover uncredited

Title: “The Mystery of the Power Crown!”
Synopsis: Spidey and friends team to stop the Enchantress and assorted himbos from restoring the creatively named Power Crown.

Writer: Uncredited
Penciler: Uncredited
Inker: Uncredited

Review: Comic books and 7-Eleven were a hand-in-glove fit during the Bronze Age, so this hard-to-find promotional one-shot was on a lot of young fans’ wish lists. It was probably best Little Me never scored a copy, though, because this uncredited comic is a bit of a stinker. As with many of the era’s Spider-Man giveaways, the tone here is more Spidey Super Stories than mainstream Marvel. Perhaps it was a serviceable gateway for the youngest of Bronze-era fans, but even that era’s tweens would have been let down by this one’s simple story, weak characterization and pedestrian art.

COVER STORY: Detective Comics #156

The issue before, Detective Comics #155 (January 1950), had featured Batman and Robin enjoying some home movies while winking knowingly at the reader. Win Mortimer created a scene that reinforced the idea that their secret identities (as well as their manliness and machismo), was a shared joke between the two heroes and that reader.

On the cover that followed, Detective Comics#157 (March 1950), Mortimer again creates a scene that is fun, familiar and non-threatening. As Robin flips his mentor over his shoulder in a tremendously athletic display while creating a demonstration for the students at the Gotham City Policewoman’s Academy, Batman waves and smiles as if they do this every day.

Which truth be told, they probably did.

Both scenes share a non-threatening and safe image of the detective and his sidekick. It is a family friendly scene, one of domesticity and safety that National consciously promoted. Mortimer’s work is beautiful in its construction and perfect in execution. They are both perfect and of their time.

The cover that was released in between these two issues is a bit different. Drawn by Dick Sprang, Detective Comics #156 (February 1950) is still part of Mortimer’s world (and by extension both National Periodical’s world and self-image), but the artist’s work goes somewhere else, somewhere that Mortimer’s work doesn’t take us.

Maurice Sendak Original Art at Hake’s

Hake’s Americana & Collectibles continues to offer items from the expansive collection of Maurice Sendak, author of the beloved children's book Where The Wild Things Are and other titles. This auction presents another round of rare and desirable pieces from Sendak’s impressive Disneyana collection, but the absolute highlight is an original piece of art by the beloved writer and illustrator.

In 1982 Sendak and noted opera/theater stage director Frank Corcaro produced a show for the Glyndebourne Festival Opera featuring the music of noted Russian composer, pianist and conductor Sergei Prokofiev. Prokoview is best-known for his composition Peter and the Wolf as well as the opera The Love for Three Oranges, which premiered at the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago on December 30, 1921.

The opera tells the tale of a King whose son suffers from depression. The only cure is laughter. Court jesters and clowns prove useless, but when a witch falls down revealing her undergarments, the Prince becomes hysterical, causing the witch to curse him with an obsession with three oranges and being unable to rest until they were found. A magician reveals the location of the oranges and summons a demon who summons winds that blow the Prince and his friend to a palace guarded by a monstrous cook. Suffice to say, the oranges are successfully stolen from the cook and the Prince’s curse is eventually cured by true love.

July 1: Saturday Cartoon Animation at Heritage

A wide selection of animation cells from the late-1960s and 1970s, the heyday of Saturday Morning Cartoons for the age group known collectively as Gen-X, is set to hit the auction block on Tuesday, July 1, 2014 at Heritage Auctions. When it does, it may well mark the coming out party for a whole new generation of collectors who have the nostalgia of the childhoods driving them and now the necessary funds to support that quest.

Examples of production and presentation animation cells from some of the biggest cartoons of the era – Superfriends, Star Trek, the Laff-A-Lympics, Scooby Doo, Josie and The Pussycats and many more – are estimated to bring a range of prices, ranging from several hundred up to as much as a few thousand, by conservative estimates.

TWELVE-WEEK TOUR: Static's First Year - Part 12

This issue brings us to the conclusion of Overstreet Advisor and former Gemstone staffer Scott Braden's tour through the seriously impressive -- and frequently overlooked -- first 12 issues of Milestone Media's Static, which some have asserted, was the best monthly superhero comic book on the market at that time.

If you disagree, well, that's fine, but don't dismiss it out of hand. Find the back issues and give them a read! 

Here's our final installment, Part 12...

Static #12
DC Comics; Milestone Media; May 1994

Getting Out

The end of the series’ first year begins with Static on patrol, when all of a sudden, a Buick flies out from nowhere and almost hits him. The culprit was D-Struct Briggs, another Bang Baby, who is jealous of Static. And when some thugs take D-Struct’s father and say they’ll kill him if he doesn’t kill Static, then he knows what he has to do.

But that also leaves Static to think of a way to save his own butt. So, when D-Struct comes into school, Hawkins transforms into Static and confronts his new nemesis. He tells him that by working together, they’ll save his dad – and that he has a plan.

While D-Struct takes pot shots at him, Hawkins gives him a grand tour of Sadler and the other neighborhoods of Dakota. The last location is where D-Struct’s dad is being held, and they literally crash the party. As D-Struct goes after Static, he’s taking out one gangster after another – to the point that the thugs think they’re working together. As Static joins in and kicks major booty, D-Struct finds his father ...safe and sound.

Segue to D-Struct meeting Static and telling him he and his father are leaving Dakota. In D-Struct’s words, he doesn’t want to be a super-hero or a super-villain, he just wants to go to college.

Speed Gibson

Did you know that long before the days of Speed Racer, there was another Speed who had captured the imaginations of kids and teens across America? He was Speed Gibson, and at 15 years old, he was an ace pilot and a member of the International Secret Police who traveled the world over in a 1937-38 radio adventure. This was 10 years after Lindy's historic flight, and aviation was, literally, at its peak. There was an especially huge interest in the China Clipper Ship - a plane that, with flights from the U.S.A. to China, embodied all that was exciting and glamorous about this new age of travel. Espionage and the notion of tracking bad guys across international borders was also a popular theme of the day, so Speed, along with his top agent uncle Clint Barlow and their pilot sidekick Barney Dunlap, were all the rage when they took to the skies in their “Flying Clipper.”

In hot pursuit of that master criminal The Octopus and his ruthless gang of ne'er do wells, the three jaunted all over Africa and the Orient to the delight of thousands of fans. They even had a special catch phrase that caught on, and soon youngsters everywhere were exclaiming, “Suffering Wang-doodles, Speed!” at every chance they got. With a dramatic opening segment that featured the sounds of aircraft and the inspiring call, “ceiling zero, ceiling zero,” this serial lasted through 178 chapters and generated tons of memorabilia.

The Overstreet Hall of Fame: Dean Mullaney

Who are the individuals who have made great contributions to the comic book arts? Who are the writers, artists, editors, publishers and others who have plied their craft in insightful ways? The Overstreet Hall of Fame, which spotlights many such creators and leading figures, is featured in The Overstreet Guide To Collecting Comics.

In 2007, Dean Mullaney created IDW Publishing’s archival imprint The Library of American Comics, which he edits and designs. Almost immediately his efforts began to usher in a new Golden Age of classic comic strip reprint collections, significant in both the material itself and the manner in which it is presented. In its first four years, LoAC has been nominated for nine Eisner awards and other accolades, and it has been called “the gold standard for archival comic strip reprints.”

Under his guidance, Milton Caniff’s Terry and the Pirates, Alex Raymond’s Rip Kirby, Chester Gould’s Dick Tracy, Harold Gray’s Little Orphan Annie, Archie Goodwin and Al Williamson’s Secret Agent Corrigan, Chic Young’s Blondie and other strips have been showcased for seasoned fans and new readers alike.

Mark Arminski's Concert Posters Rock at Hake’s

In our last auction, we featured the inaugural offering of items from the archives of legendary concert poster artist Mark Arminski. Arminski has visually dazzled concertgoers and collectors with hundreds of striking concert poster designs as well as other works of art and unique creations.

Featured Collections are something Hake’s Americana & Collectibles is always thrilled to offer and that has never been truer than in our current auction which features the second grouping that encompasses not only vintage Bill Graham and Family Dog concert posters, concert posters Arminski created and/or printed (many of which are have been signed by the bands they promote), but pieces that have been signed by musicians, bands as well as Arminski and his peers, and other material found within the walls of his studio, including Arminski’s original works of art.

Arminski began his career as a modern psychedelic rock poster artist in 1991, collaborating with Chris Dorris and his company, Ghetto Press. Arminski’s distinct use of bold colors and strong central images along with a whimsical sense of humor helped bridge the gap between the classic psychedelic concert poster art of the 1960s and today’s modern concert poster esthetic. Over the years, Arminski has produced more than 300 concert posters, for both local bands and nationally recognized acts, such as Bob Dylan, Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper, The Beastie Boys, The Smashing Pumpkins and countless others.
