Original Comic Art Superheroes Find a New Home on the World’s Greatest Comic Art Marketplace Sketchmaven.com, the Premier Marketplace for Original Comic Art, Launches on Thanksgiving Day, November 26, 2009.
News-Antique.com - Nov 16,2009 - Santa Clara, CA – November 16, 2009 – Comic book fans and art collectors will soon have a new marketplace to display, buy and sell their favorite pieces of original comic art. Launching on Thanksgiving Day, the new Sketch Maven website (sketchmaven.com) is primed to become the preferred marketplace for collectors of original comic art.
Michael Todasco, a board member at the Cartoon Art Museum and founder of Sketch Maven, comments, “As a gathering place for collectors of original comic art, Sketch Maven is truly unique. Created by collectors for collectors, our site is dedicated solely to one-of-a-kind, hand-drawn original comic book art.”
“Sketch Maven celebrates comics in their purest form,” adds Todasco. “Every comic book page, from Batman to Transformers, starts out drawn by hand in pencil. The art is then carefully inked over. The hand-drawn pages are provided to publishers who make a copy of the original artwork for coloring and printing. After publishing the comic book pages, the original comic art is returned to the artist. These original comic art pages have become highly-sought after collectibles that provide collectors and enthusiasts with another way to enjoy their favorite comic book characters and the satisfaction of owning a collectible unlike any other.”
The new Sketch Maven website is designed to provide collectors with an enhanced marketplace experience. By using a best-in-class integrated search, collectors can search by character, artist, time period, price and other criteria to find the original comic art they’re looking for. “The site is designed to eliminate many of the headaches associated with buying and selling original comic artwork,” comments Todasco. To simplify listings, Sketch Maven constructed an expansive database featuring millions of original comic book art pages, so sellers can post the page they’d like to sell in an instant.
Unlike traditional auction sites, the Sketch Maven website provides members with an opportunity to sell original comic book art without any time constraints. Plus, with no listing, membership, picture or payment processing fees, collectors enjoy one of the most affordable options for finding and selling original comic art.
In addition to simplifying the selling and buying process, Sketch Maven also serves as a resource for original comic art collectors. “The site provides a meeting place for original comic art collectors to share information, determine the value of items, and discuss their passion for outstanding, hand-drawn original comic art,” adds Todasco.
“Even if collectors are not interested in selling their pieces, they can display their original comic art collection on our site, edit the information in the database and provide other interesting details about the pieces they own. Sketch Maven creates a rich, interactive community for collectors to communicate with each other.”
Through enhanced search capabilities, top-notch service and incredible ease of use, Sketch Maven is dedicated to providing the ultimate buying and selling experience for original comic art collectors.
