Hello Comic Art Collectors!

Three Prince Valiant comic strips, plus original Prince Valiant artwork by Hal Foster will be auctioned at Nate D. Sanders Auctions on Thursday, September 28, 2017. All items come from the estate of Prince Valiant artist John Cullen Murphy.

The Hero Initiative has another round of Kirby Wake Up and Draw auctions on ebay right now. Artists this time around include Kevin Eastman, Khoi Pham, Joe Jusko, Chris Samnee, Casey Jones, and several others.

This year during NYCC the Illustration House is opening its doors to comic art enthusiasts of all walks of life looking to geek out on art. These meetups don't happen as often as they used to, so be sure to catch this one! Unlike the more intimate meetups of the past, buying/selling/trading art is openly encouraged, as such Illustration House will be making wall space available for framed pieces, so contact Zaddick if you'd like to make arrangements to have some of your art featured for everyone to enjoy. More details here!

2017 marks the 50th anniversary of Hake's. Our half century in the collectibles industry is without peer. Let us show you why Hake's is THE place to sell your original art. 

Why is Hake's your best choice? The answer is simple- Hake's is America's first and foremost pop culture auction house. No one has done it longer and no one does it better.

We showcase your consignments in the best possible way across many platforms: print ads (including exclusive advertising in Diamond Comic Distributors' Previews), internet, social media campaigns and in-person at conventions.

We are not only an internet-based auction, we also produce an exceptional full color catalog that is second to none and sent to our clientele around the world.

Select pieces are candidates for being featured on the catalog cover, guaranteeing you maximum exposure.

Commission rates are low and we will offer 0% commission for selected pieces. Cash advances are available for quality consignments. 

We also limit the amount of like items that are offered in each auction to ensure that your items realize their full potential and do not compete against similar items.

Work continues on the next Hake's auction, but there is still time to submit your original art. Contact us about consigning as soon as possible. Now is the time to reserve space in our upcoming auction so that we have ample time to promote your items. 

Hake's will be attending the Baltimore Comic Con this weekend (September 22nd-24th).  Stop by booth 2204 and see us. We're always happy to talk comic art and consignments!

To consign, please contact: 

Sean Rutan

Kelly McClain- 866-404-9800 ext. 1636

As always, Hake's appreciates and thanks you for your continued support!
