On Saturday 26 October 2013 at 12:00 noon CST, thirty-one pages of original comic art by Richard Corben will go on sale via the “Sales” page on the artist’s official website.
The sale will include ten pages from two issues of Ghost Rider, ten pages from Hellblazer: Hard Time, and all eleven pages of “Tales of the Black Diamond, Crypt of Blood,” with script by Rich Margopoulos, a story that was first published in Horror in the Dark #3 (Fantagor, 1991).
All pages are drawn in Sharpie pens and Pigma pens on 11 x 17 inch Strathmore paper.
Scans of the pages are on the Corben website now for “viewing only.” Although the images are tiny, they are nonetheless large enough to see, for instance, that the grey tones used to establish the midnight mood of the published version of “Crypt of Blood” are not part of the original art.
All prices will be posted when the sale goes live, at which point the first person to complete the PayPal shopping cart for each page will receive that page.
