Berserk Merchandise / Re: Any Berserk original art out there?

Bumping up this topic I was poking on yahoo auctions and saw this.

The art looks off, so I was wondering what this was being sold as? Is this supposed to be a sketch my Miura? I put the description through google translate and it looks like the seller is saying he got it from someone else on Yahoo Auctions.

Well, i remember this.

Thanks for the link. Some fun stuff searching through the ended auctions. Looks like pretty much no actual panels or covers are sold - mostly just head sketches (with a few exceptions). With there not being much work available those prices are pretty high. Supply and demand drives all collectibles though. Like for western comics Greg Capullo has been the artist for the Batman relaunch about 5 years ago and he didn't sell any work for most of his whole run until recently. Now he drips it out and puts very high prices (like  $35,000 for a cover).

Thanks for the info.

It seems like manga artists don't sell their work as much as western artists. I wonder if he is just sitting on the thousands of pages stacked up somewhere.

Is there a market for original art from manga? I googled around and it didn't seem to be much out there and just a few discussions on it in English.

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone had or knew how to get a hold of some Berserk original artwork (the artwork used to make covers, interior pages, etc.). I don't have a huge collection (more of a quality over quantity collector) but the one manga series I'd be interested in is Berserk which I've been following every since I picked up the anime DVDs back when they came out in the US (probably around 2002).

I've searched around and it seems that collecting manga artwork isn't as common as with western comics.

I'd love to get a nice cover or splash page from Berserk. Searching these forums and others I saw threads about how a piece popped up on yahoo auctions but that was a thread from 2003.

Does anyone know if Kentaro Miura sells his work? Next step if he does would be to use one of those go in between services for importing things from Japan.

Here is the one original art I've seen posted online from someone's collection:
