Currently $2000 for the Bisley Horned God page, with a couple of days to go. Relatively cheap, I think (but well outside my budget):

Pretty sure that will go significantly higher...

The Murray Dredd cover is at $6500 at mo, pretty sure that'll go significantly higher too!

The Murray one has the benefit of featuring Batman, Dredd, the Joker and the Dark Judges.

In my minds eye I see an American comic fan, possibly with a hotdog in one greasy hand, grasping at the Bisley page. "How much do y'all want for the Conan page?".

*Apologies to any Americans who read this. Feel free to ascribe any negative national stereotypes to me. They're probably accurate.

Update on the auction: the Bisley Slaine DPS went for around $11k and the Murry Dredd cover for around $23k. Er...don't suppose either went to anyone on here...?

Bought from David Roach at LSCC for £100

It's a joke. I was joking.

What a brilliant page you got there, Spikes. Comic art collector gold.

Here's what I blew all my hungover cash on at the 40th birthday bash. It doesn't quite belong in the "2000AD Original Art" thread, but then it definitely doesn't fit the "Non-2000AD Art" thread either.

I was in the hall early enough to have the pleasure of flipping through the whole set of John McCrea's Dredd Deviations art. There were two standout pages and, after a bit of thought, I went for this final splash page. It's really interesting how the colouring of the published version has softened the tone of the story slightly.

We never really die.
