DC Comics Publisher Jim Lee and Friends Raise More Than $800K Leaving Jim Lee With 7 Sketches To Go Of 60 Sketch Promise Help Comic Book Shops Hurt By Covid-19 Coronavirus Pandemic!
Jim Lee has completed 53 of 60 promised art pieces; that’s 7 more “days” of Jim Lee art left. It will be over 60 days just not consecutive days. On top of that he’s been able to have artist peers contribute to support struggling local comic book stores.
Click on the summaries below to see final amount for each auction. The total raised on the first 90 closed auctions are $689,325.23
When we last reported on this there were 3 auctions had yet to close, but had bids of $13,287 committed at that time.
Since we didn’t check in until now, I’m not able to see what these all went for on eBay, so we’ll stick with the above totals for now. If there is a way to tell how things sold over 5 months ago please drop me line.
In addition, there are 4 Jim Lee auctions (#47-50 above) and 2 Jim Lee friends auctions (below) that I also am not able to see what they sold for. The auction details are here:
However, we do have 3 Jim Lee pieces and 2 friends pieces that were sold more recently that we can see what they sold for: $61,125.
That gives us a total of $763,737.23. However, it is quite evident that the auctions exceed well over $800K in funds raised considering the average value of Jim Lee auctions extrapolated for the 4 pieces of Jim Lee art that I noted above we have no intel on for now; we also have those 2 Jim Lee friends auctions whose final sold value are also MIA for now.
