“It’s amazing that three years ago, no comic book had ever sold for even half that amount,” said Ed Jaster, Vice President of Heritage Auctions, which brokered the sale. “Heritage is holding a $4+ million comics and comic art auction in Dallas May 10-11. Many collectors and dealers will be watching to see how Golden Age comics perform there.”
