Search Blogs



We are pleased to announce that the Art Side and SCC will be holding an Original Comic Art Exhibition at STGCC this year. As many comic collectors are aware, original comic art is a growing extension of comic collecting. More and more comic fans are now collecting comic art, from sketches to blank cover art to commissions to published pages. In the upcoming Original Comic Art Exhibition, many types of such original comic art belonging to local comic art collectors will be on display. The original comic art we are referring to are original works drawn by artists on over-sized boards that are subsequently coloured, printed and made into comic books - i.e. the unique 'masters' and valuable one-of-a-kind pieces.

The Original Comic Art Exhibition will educate attendees on the various stages of production for a comic book and provide examples of the different types of original comic art, as well as showcase original X-men comic art through the decades and original comic art from past STGCC guests.

Featured artwork include those done by Todd McFarlane, Neal Adams, John Byrne, Walt Simonson, Arthur Adams, Adam Hughes, Frank Cho, Sonny Liew, Artgerm, Adi Granov and many others.

Do visit the exhibition at STGCC to see the pieces in person.

Original Art Collecting: 101

By Dick O.

Comic art in its original form (generally ink over pencil on 11”x17” art board) allows one to admire the artistry of comic book production in close detail. My appreciation of penciling, inking, lettering and colouring, acquired from poring over countless original art pages, would never have developed just from reading comic books. This in turn has resulted in an increased affinity for artists and styles that I’d previously paid little attention to.

For the purposes of this column, OA refers to the original art of the individual pages found in your monthly comic book floppies and graphic novels. Generally, each OA page (and cover) is an 11″x17″ art board containing hand-drawn pencils (by a penciller) under hand-applied black inks (by an inker). OA can also refer to art from comic strips, non-American comic books and unpublished commissions.

Each piece of published OA is one-of-a-kind, automatically making it more exclusive than any comic book. No matter the price, you can always be assured that nobody else owns the same page of OA as you!
