The Suicide Squad movie arrives in just a few weeks, and wouldn’t you know it, the first comic book appearance of Harley Quinn has landed on the auction block at Heritage Auctions.
If you are a collector of original comic book art, Heritage Auctions has an event coming up that will feature the sale of Bernie Wrightson’s cover to Swamp Thing #1 and more.
It is the hope and dream of every comic book collector to get their hands on a super rare comic. Unfortunately, high quality copies can go for millions of dollars. This also applies to rare comics of lesser grade. A new Heritage Auctions auction for a CGC 5.5 Action Comics #1 is going on now, and it’s way out of my price range.
The first appearance of Black Panther by Jack Kirby, original Peanuts strips, and an ultra rare Bill Watterson Calvin and Hobbes strip from 1987 hit the auction block in May.
Look, I know you have millions stashed away in that jar in the back yard, and knowing your love of comics, you’re going to want to dig it up and plunk some of it down when Amazing Fantasy #15 goes on the auction block.
The 1932 MGM classic, Tarzan the Ape Man, which featured Johnny Wiessmuller as the title character, has only one known Style D one sheet/poster still in existence. That poster goes on the auction block later this month.
Heritage Auctions always has something interesting to sell, and its continued comic book finds and offerings always impress the heck out of me. Currently, the company is offering Journey Into Mystery #83 for anyone in the world to bid on, and the Near Mint 9.6 graded first appearance of The Mighty Thor will sell for more than $140,000.
Heritage Auctions sold over $5.1 million this past weekend in Dallas, and while that seems like a really large sum, its surprising how much Suspense Comics #3 sold for.
The original John Byrne and Terry Austin double splash page art from X-Men #137 (Marvel, 1980), “The Fate of the Phoenix!”, arguably the most famous image from the greatest and most popular X-Men story of them all, is expected to bring $150,000+ when it comes to auction on Aug. 27, 2015, as the centerpiece of Heritage Auctions’ Aug. 27-29, 2015 Comics and Comic Art Signature® Auction.
Press Release An original Frank Frazetta painting and the finest known copy of the famous Suspense Comics #3 – both estimated at $100,000 and up – will be among many auction highlights on display at the two Heritage booths at the July 8-12 Comic-Con International at the San Diego Convention Center.
Press Release A virtual Who’s Who of 20th Century Pop Culture tops Heritage Auctions’ April 9-10, 2015 Animation Art Signature® Auction, led by a screen-used production cel from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, on a Key Master Production Background Setup – Disney’s game-changing 1937 animated film – featuring the Evil Queen just as she has transformed into the Old Hag, a key scene in the story. It carries a $40,000+ pre-auction estimate.
