Heritage Auctions’ Comics Department Breaks Weekly Auction Record For Third Time This Year

Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, original art lift record above $466K

Amazing Fantasy #15 Spider-Man
DALLAS, Texas (August 8, 2018) — For the third time this year, the comics department at Heritage Auctions set a new record when its August 5 Sunday Internet Comics, Animation & Art Auction racked up $466,512.20 in total sales.

The previous mark was $422,238.16, which surpassed the standard of $418,044 that had stood for exactly one week.

"Our bidders know that missing a week could mean missing something really good, as even $10,000 single lots are not a rarity in these auctions anymore," Heritage Auctions Comics Director of Operations Barry Sandoval said. "We average 800 lots per week, there are no minimum bids or reserves, and most of the material is from fresh-to-the-market personal collections."

The 936-lot auction was led by Amazing Fantasy #15 (Marvel, 1962) CGC VG- 3.5 Cream to off-white pages, which brought $20,400. Other top lots included:

· Dick Dillin and Dick Giordano Justice League of America #112 "War with the One-Man Justice League!" Partial Story Original Art Group of 19 (DC Comics, 1974): $16,800

· John Buscema Wolverine: Bloody Choices #nn Graphic Novel Story Page 15 Original Art (Marvel, 1991): $13,200

· Fantastic Four #5 (Marvel, 1962) CGC VF- 7.5 Off-white to white pages: $13,200

The auction also featured Animation art, led by Robin Hood Animation Drawing Print Sequence of 10 by Milt Kahl (Walt Disney, 1973), which sold for $1,320.
