June 10, 2010 - PRLog -- Santa Clara, CA – June 10, 2010 – All over the country, kids of all ages are looking for the perfect gift for Father’s Day to celebrate all their Dad has done for them.  What do you get for the man who has everything?  Original comic artwork is the answer.  Comic artwork are the original oversized pages the artist drew to create a comic book, and only one of each page exists.  That means the buyer is guaranteed that their father, husband, grandfather, or loved one does not already have it.

Not only is comic artwork original and unique, it also provides a tie back to many childhood memories.  “There was a time your Dad was young too, and it was then that he started reading stories of amazing heroes like Batman, Superman, Iron Man, the Transformers and so many more,” comments Mike Todasco,  founder of Sketch Maven, the World’s Greatest Original Comic Art Marketplace.  

“Finding a gift for Father’s Day can always be a challenge.  He’s already got plenty of ties and cologne.  Giving your Dad an original piece of comic artwork is thoughtful and unique, something he’ll remember for years to come,” adds Todasco.  “We’d like to help make your buying experience as easy as possible on www.sketchmaven.com by giving you a great selection, easy way to search for your favorite character or artist, and buyer protection if you’re not satisfied with your purchase.”

Like comic books, original comic art is sought out by collectors. Every page within a comic book starts out as an original hand drawn page of artwork which is provided to publishers who then use that artwork to mass produce the comic.  The pages of original comic art are typically returned to the artist after the comic book is published. Prior to the 1970s, many of the original comic art pieces were discarded, destroyed or given away to fans. Original comic book art pages and covers are often made available for sale by artists and collectors through original comic art marketplaces like Sketch Maven.
