Buy Me This! 3/17/14

Take a look at some cool art you can actually buy online, right now!

Most of us read comic books and love flipping through the pages, but how often do we get a chance to actually purchase original artwork from the comic? Believe it or not, you can find tons of original artwork for sale all over the Internet. While there is a lot of affordable art, we'll be showing you some not so affordable artwork we found. Let's get right into the awesomeness you can buy on the net.

DEAL OF THE WEEK: MOON KNIGHT #1, Page 4

I know I literally just said this is all about unafforable art, but when I saw Cadence Comic Art was selling every page of MOON KNIGHT #1, drawn by Declan Shalvey, I knew it had to appear on here because maybe one of you could pick it up. Most of the pages to this issue have already been sold, but as of right this moment, as I type this, you can buy this page for $300. As far as original comic pages go, by a pretty well-known artist, that's pretty dang cheap.

ELEKTRA: ASSASSIN #8, Page 9

It's rare to see fully colored work available for purchase, especially artwork from a book written by Frank Miller. This piece, however, was painted by Bill Sienkiewicz and comes to us from the website Anthony's Comic Book Art.This piece of art, which fans originally saw in print in 1987, will cost you $14,500. What would you rather have? A decent used car or this pretty awesome piece of art, featuring Elektra?

INCREDIBLE HULK #3, Page 10

Looking at this page from INCREDIBLE HULK #3, you might be thinking, "what's so special about this?" This page, coming from Romita Man, is pencilled by none other than the late, great Jack Kirby and inked by the just as legendary Dick Ayers. It's pretty obviously that the art of one of the father's of Marvel comics is going to be highly-sought after. But how does that translate to price? Well, this particular piece will run you $24,000.

Covers to HELLBLAZER #245 & #246

Taking a look at something a bit more recent, here is the covers to HELLBLAZER #245 and #246.Both of these interlocking covers come from artist Lee Bermejo.If you're interested in actually buying this beautiful original art, you'll have to head over to Splash Page Comic Art and shell out $4,000. Lots of times, when you see a price this high, you tend to turn away, but for me, this one of those cases where if I was super-rich, I'd pick this up. Go ahead, judge me!

Cover to BRAVE & THE BOLD #34

Our last piece is a bit of a doozy! Coming to us from Romatiaman, we have the original cover to BRAVE & THE BOLD #34. There's a few things that make this cover extremely special. First and foremost, it's first first appearance of the Silver Age version of Hawkman. The other big deal about this cover is that it was pencilled and inked by comic book legend Joe Kubert. What do you have to pay to own the original pencils and inks for such a historic comic book? Only $140,000! You have a pretty easy choice here. Either you can fully pay off a small house or you can own this cover!

While all of these prices, except for Moon Knight, are a little up there, each of the sites listed above do have affordable comic book pages for fans, as long as you don't mind searching. There you have it! We'll see you guys next week when we talk about some comic book collectibles for sale on the net!

Mat "Inferiorego" Elfring is a writer, joke teller, twitter guy, podcaster, and does NOT want you to buy him anything in this piece.

Original Art is my weakness. If this isn't already a regular feature, please make it one. :)

@undeadpool I like that Declan art without colour so much! Wow!

That Hawkman one is pretty sweet.

Posted by ArturoCalaKayVee

I'm really liking the Hawkman piece. The Hulk and Hellblazer one's are nice too.

I just bought the Brave and the Bold one. Ha! I wish!

Thank you! I hope you all really appreciate the banner I spent 10 minutes on in Photoshop as well. I even put a lens flare on it.

This is by far the new best segment of the week.

I want that Moon Knight page!!

Posted by Jonny_Anonymous

@billy_batson: It's something about Bermejo's art, sometimes it looks amazing and sometimes I think it looks weird.

I want Lemire's cover for Animal Man #29 featuring the whole Baker family. But it's got a price tag of $1,800.

Hellblazer looks awesome

What is the point of buying all these? I'm serious. Can someone explain it to me?

Being poor sucks.

I totally want the Hawkman one!!

I'd prefer the actual cover -- with the background and blood spatter but textless -- as poster! However, is this on ebay?

Edited by longbowhunter

@donfelipe: Yeah it's on eBay. Being sold through his art dealer, Cadence Comic Art.

I really can't find it anywhere -- neither on eBay, via Google, nor on CCA's website -- and I tried all kinds of keywords and combinations. Perhaps it's already been sold and gone. Did you get it?

Really? I don't know what there is to get. You're getting a page of a comic you presumably love. The original! The pen-to-paper version of it! I think that's pretty damn cool. You get it framed, is what you do.

SO what is the point of buying it for that much $$$? You you can just stare at it?

Edited by longbowhunter

@donfelipe: I wish I could buy it, but no, its still for sale. I just went on eBay and typed in Jeff Lemire art. It's on the first page.

The reason why I couldn't see it is because it's set to be visible for customers within Canada and the US only. I can see it now after selecting a different location. Thanks.

Edit: Shipping $40 plus import charge $400. :(

I'm not sure if I'm crazy enough for this. I'd prefer some Trillium art work like the flip covers of issue #1 but these seem to be gone already unfortunately or should I say fortunately? The 2 flip covers would have been even more expensive.
