PRESS RELEASE The cover of Shock SuspenStories No. 6 is among the most famous images in the history of comics. Because of its subject matter. The terrifying story inside. And because of the man who made it. A perfect storm of creator and content: Wally Wood takes on the Ku Klux Klan! And for the first time in four decades, this 1952 masterpiece heads to auction as one of the centerpieces of Heritage Auctions’ June 17-19 Comics & Comic Art Signature Auction. Its estimate is $300,000 and up.

And in 2018, a far better copy of the 1953 book sold for almost twice that amount.
