Comic art for sale - Dominic Winter auction ,15 Dec

The next Dominic Winter auction has a few interesting comic lots included in it, I've picked my highlights from the illustration lots (lots 729-816). These are in my order of preference, not the order in which they'll be sold!

First up is lot 809 here with these two (non-consecutive) pages of Keith Watson Dan Dare art from Eagle - bids open at £150

Lot 796 (here) is a lot with John Ryan original artwork - Captain Pugwsh and Harris Tweed are featured

Lot 813 (here) intrigues with the lot described thus...
White (Hugh Stanley, 1904-1988). A collection of prints and drawings, 58 pencil and pen & ink drawings on paper or card, including cartoon strips for comics, portrait and figure studies, architectural studies, etc., and 90 prints, mostly etchings (many artist's proofs), various condition, largest 72 x 50 cm,

Artist Stanley White is best-known for his science-fiction picture strips which were published in newspapers and children's comics such as Mickey Mouse Weekly, Bo-Peep, and the Boys' and Girls' Daily Mail. White's work appeared in the debut issue of Mickey Mouse Weekly published in 1936, and his much-acclaimed 'Ian on Mu' was Britain's first science-fiction picture strip serial.
