Steranko 1980 Original Comic Art Catalog!

Take a look at these incredibly low prices for classic 60s and 70s comic book art in this early 80s catalog. Jim Steranko (famed comics artist on SHIELD, CAPTAIN AMERICA, and many other titles) put these together, and was more interested in the selling of older pulp and magazine art, with comics material jammed into the back.

Today, some of these pages and covers sell for up to 40 grand and more!

reading through that makes my brain hurt. so many pages, so little money (well, relatively even for that time). But I was 14 in 1980, how the hell was i going to get $300 for a Steranko cover?

It was still relatively inexpensive when I began collecting the artwork in 1989. I feel lucky to have some nice pieces from that time!
