Announcement: Sunday Internet Comics Auctions move to Heritage Live!

Our Weekly Internet Comics Auctions are closing with a live, online auction on HA.com's Heritage Live! platform beginning with the auction that ends Sunday, September 21st. Each lot is offered one at a time, in lot number order, in a live auction beginning at 7:00 PM CT. During this part of the auction, live bidders will be on Heritage Live! competing with each other and with previously placed Internet bids. The lot opens, requests live bids, and then closes when the bidding is finished. There is no change in how you place your secret maximum bids during the week the auctions are open on HA.com. In addition, once bidding on HA.com ends, 2 hours before the live sessions start, you still have the option to leave proxy bids through Heritage Live!

Description:
Warren Kremer Black Cat Mystery #45 "Colorama" Cover Preliminary/Concept Sketch Original Art Group (Harvey, 1953). What could be more thrilling for a Harvey horror fan than this full-color Warren Kremer prelim for the famous "Colorama" story in issue #45? Warren Kremer achieved this disorienting "warped space" effect by first drawing a self-portrait on another sheet of paper, crumpling it up, and then basing this cover design on that distressed model. This 7.25" x 10.25" mixed media (ink and colored pencil) on vellum piece has some overall glue staining, wear, and creasing, and it has been mounted to a piece of support paper; otherwise, it is in Good condition. Also included with this lot are two printer's proofs of the finished cover (one has been three-hole punched).
