About Rare Comic Book Art Drawings
What is rare in comic book art?
When I started to research this hub, I found out something quite surprising, that there is quite a lot of rare comic book art that it almost took over the search results on ebay, I never knew that so many pieces of art existed to do with golden age comic books and the silver age comics.
Usually when limited pieces of art were printed they only limit them to at least 50 to 100, but also in some cases only the original piece of artwork somehow survived out of the printed pieces and this is what makes the art that much rarer.
All the old classical comic book artists such as Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, John Romita, all have rare pieces of panel to page layout artwork between them, and it is this classic art that is much sought after within the comic book circles.
Spiderman artwork By Steve Ditko
Steve Ditko Spiderman Artist
Steve Ditko is an artist before my time, but I have seen his work through Spiderman reprints and whilst it's not as good as Jack Kirby's art it still represents an age of comic book art for that time in the 60's. The style was simple, the panel layout also basic but still had a professional feel to it in some page panels.
Although as we see Spiderman now he can jump through the air actually like a spider with his legs almost twisted around his own head and that didn't seem to be apparent back then with Steves Spiderman art, but it's still collectible today and people will pay a good price for a rare piece of Ditko comic book art.

Types of comic book art
Some artists who draw the pages may ink their own work too which could add to the value of each piece, some of the art could be comic book story pages or splash pages which are just full page drawings of one panel.
Single character comic book art is quite popular as certain characters can be associated with comic book artists as they may have a good run on one comic book and just become the artist for that book that fans become accustomed to.
Cover art from comic books is another type of art and has become very collectible over the years with buyers trying to find rare pencil art from some of the golden age comic book covers or the 60's.
