    Description

    Carmine Infantino and Murphy Anderson The Flash #137 Earth-1/Earth-2 Crossover Cover Original Art (DC, 1963). Hold onto your costume rings, Flash-fans -- here's a show-stopping, vintage Silver Age/Golden Age meet-up between Barry Allen, the sixties Scarlet Speedster, and his Earth-2 counterpart, the original Flash, Jay Garrick. Throw in a cover cameo by sinister super-villain Vandal Savage and you have an indisputable classic. "Vengeance of the Immortal Villain" featured the first full Silver Age appearance of the Justice Society as well as the first Silver Age appearances of Vandal Savage and Johnny Thunder. Original Carmine Infantino and Murphy Anderson Flash covers rarely surface, let alone those featuring the coveted Earth-1/Earth-2 crossovers. When a masterwork such as this is offered, it can be expected to bring spirited bidding and top-dollar. This super-spectacular, landmark piece, only the second Flash cover of this era that we have ever offered, has an image area of 12.5" x 18.5". The title logo and Comics Code stat are recent replacements (though the bottom title stat is original), and aside from some light overall paper aging, the art is in Excellent condition. Don't miss out on this wonderful chance to bid on a Silver Age DC classic.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
