It’s not our usual habit to deal in original artwork, but two items have come into our possession which it was impossible to resist; Adam Hughes has made a reputation over the last twenty-plus years for delivering some of the most outstanding renditions of the female heroic form in comics; his covers alone are commanding high prices on auction sites. So when we had the opportunity to offer two unique convention sketches of two of the most popular ladies in comics, neither ever published except in the Convention Booklet, which had a very limited circulation, we couldn’t turn them away. The two separate pieces are of DC’s First Lady, Wonder Woman, and the X-Men’s nemesis, Mystique. These were both obtained at the 2007 Star Wars Celebration Europe convention, and come to us directly from the original purchaser. Each is ink line with wash shading, in custom-made frames with UV protective glass. Dimensions of each piece, in the frames, are 42 cm x 49 cm. In addition, they are accompanied by a booklet of Adam Hughes’ Convention Sketches, ‘Details Are A Tad Sketchy’, which reproduces both pieces as well as a plethora of other Hughes Con sketches of various villainous and heroic ladies, and was signed (well, initialled) by Mr. Hughes at the Convention in ’07. Given the decreasing frequency of Mr. Hughes’ personal appearances these days, and the phenomenal popularity of his works, we are offering these framed sketches as a pair, with Booklet, for the total price of £1,500. High resolution images are available on request.
