On 19 February 2011, Corben Studios will hold another sale of comic art by Richard Corben. The sale is to include twenty-eight pages from the artist’s DC project, Solo, along with all five pages of the story “Herbert West: Reanimator, Part 1: From the Dark,” Graphic Classics [#4]: H.P. Lovecraft (2002). All of the pages have been drawn by Corben with Sharpie and Pigma pens on 11 x 17 inch Strathmore paper, and small scans are available for viewing on the Corben Studios Web site. The pages will go on sale at 12:00 noon CST.
“A note about these pages,” writes Corben on the sale page. “In my own opinion the book Solo published by D. C. Comics in 2003 represents a high point in my comic career. ‘Homecoming’ and ‘The Plague’ are some of the best line art and writing I ever did.”
Here’s a sample page, as it appeared in the published comic:
