The recent Signature Vintage Comics & Comic Art Auction in Beverly Hills, California, set a world record for the single highest grossing comic and comic art auction
to date. With reported total sales of $10,461,790 million, the three-day event by Heritage Auctions replaces the company’s auction held just last February in Beverly Hills, which fetched nearly $9 million in sales.
“We just reset the bar for this category and Heritage continues to deliver, this time with a sell-through rate of 99.9 percent,” said Ed Jaster, a VP of Heritage Auctions. “Collectors and comics fans across the board have come to expect Heritage Auctions to continuously redefine the standard, and with good reason, too. We have no plans to stop here.”
Todd McFarlane’s original art for The Amazing Spider-Man #338 sold for $657,250. It is the highest price paid for a single piece of original comic art. The art is part of the $1.4-million Shamus Modern Masterworks Collection.
