AUCTION: Watchmen original covers and pages up for bidding


Have you ever wanted to own the iconic cover from Watchmen #1? Well that piece and more from Dave Gibbon’s work on Alan Moore’s Watchmen could soon be hanging in your Nerd Room of Doom if you come out on top of a bidding war.

In February, the original cover art for Watchmen #1 will join six other pieces from the 1986 miniseries as apart of a Heritage Auctions signatur action in New York City. Other pieces include: covers for Watchmen #2 and #2, John Higgin’s color guide for the #1 cover, a page from issue #7, and a page and color guide from #8.

Heritage Auction is no stranger to high selling pieces of comic art as they are the ones who handled the sale of Todd McFarlane’s cover to The Amazing Spider-Man #328 that sold for $657,250 in July, which set the record for highest amount paid for American comic art.

Even if you can’t make to the New York City for the bidding you can place your bid online starting February 2nd with the auction officially being held from February 21-22.
