On Saturday 09 September 2017 at 12:00 noon CST, fifteen pages of original comic art and a painting by Richard Corben will go on sale via the “Sales” page on the artist’s official website.
Five of the black-and-white comics pages in the September sale are from Conan the Cimmerian (Dark Horse, 2008-2009), five are from Corben and Strnad’s Denz (Penthouse Comix, 1996-97), and five are from Corben and Strnad’s Son of Mutant World (Fantagor Press, 1990). The painting, Air Battle, was produced in 1985 for a role-playing game. The Conan pages were drawn with Sharpie pens and Pigma pens on 11 x 17 inch Strathmore bristol paper; the Denz pages, with Sharpie pens and Pigma pens on 12 x 16 inch Strathmore bristol paper; and the Son of Mutant World pages, with markers, Sharpie pens, Pigma pens, and pencil tones, on 12 x 16 inch Bainbridge paper. Air Battle was painted in acrylic and oil on 19 x 30 inch composition board.
The small scans that are on the Corben website right now are intended for “viewing only.” Prices will be posted when the sale goes live on Saturday 09 September 2017 at 12:00 noon CST, at which point the first person to complete the PayPal shopping cart for each page will receive that page.
