Price is apparently $500 apiece, or $2,500 for the set of six.
That’s what my guess would have been based on his recent releases.

And honestly IMO these is nicer to look at than Chevrier if that’s your thing.

One has to really like avengers to drop $2,500 on these, Tristan or not.

Come on, blue. You already know the answer to that.

Just for you blue:

(tldr: giclee printed by static medium)
"Early last year (before the ‘Apocalypse Light’ as I call it), Aaron Barr and I went to Marvel HQ and boldly asked for the chance to make official Marvel Fine Art prints. I felt nervous, anxious and waaaay out of my league. But I remember having certain flashbacks to my childhood that gave me gusto. Discovering Silver Surfer in the local corner store when I was 10 years old and how it inspired me. Meeting Stan Lee at Forbidden Planet in London in 1990 and feeling like I met a god! Seeing Roy Lichtenstein’s art at the Tate Modern and understanding the connection between comics and high art... These are moments that shaped who I am as a person and as an artist. What was meant to be a 15 minute meeting at Marvel become 45 minutes and the rest is history. Here I am, 32 years after picking up my first comic book, about to release my first officially licensed Marvel Fine Art prints! It’s an emotional moment for myself and my team!

This project reminds me of my earliest moments as an artist, when things were pure. Good guys, bad guys, bright colors, great art and a sense of community. All of that remains powerful to this day. I put every drop of love and energy I have into this project and it’s one of the greatest honors of my life to contribute to the Marvel universe. I hope you all enjoy these works as much as I enjoyed making them!"

- Tristan Eaton

This series of original art for MARVEL'S THE AVENGERS was designed & painted in 2020 by artist Tristan Eaton in Los Angeles, CA. Originally created to celebrate the ‘A DAY’ video game, this series of works is the artists’ first official collaboration with MARVEL.

The partnership makes him one of few artists sanctioned to create and sell Fine Art prints of Marvel characters. Eaton's suite of 6 brand new silver foil prints featuring Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, Ms. Marvel, and Thor will be available Friday April 16th at Noon PST exclusively on www.tristaneaton.com.

These prints will drop first as a set of 6 and be available individually shortly after, but as an edition of only 100 they’re sure to go fast. Each print is priced at $500 each or $2,500 for the entire set. Each set comes with a signed holographic certificate of authenticity, all prints are signed and numbered by the artist and printed on Signa Smooth 300gsm archival cotton with embossed metallic sticker.

$500 each is just silly.

I'm not disagreeing with you. But it's in line with his usual prices. And Marvel probably wants its cut. Eaton said there are "4 people in the world" who are officially licensed for Marvel art prints. I guess that's supposed to make these more exclusive?

Other "fine art" Marvel prints (ie from Alex Ross) are like, $800-900, so $500 seems reasonable by comparison. There's probably not a huge intersection on the Venn diagram of "Alex Ross collectors" and "Tristan Eaton collectors" though. And this is to say nothing of whether I personally think they're worth that much.

Also: the new Armstrong print that was priced too high for some people sold out pretty quick. So it's all up to whatever people want to pay.

Which is a big reason why I don't own any of his work.

So apparently he didn't set a specific amount aside for individual sales, and all 100 sets all sold out in 5 minutes. And he just posted that because of this, no individuals will be sold tomorrow.

He showed both silver and gold proofs in an instagram video a couple months back, so either he scrapped it and just went with silver, or there will eventually be more. Probably in another 6 months, after several insta posts saying they'll be ready in 2-3 weeks.
