    Description

    Pete Costanza - Unknown Worlds #27, Complete 9-page Story "Ghost of a Private Eye" Original Art (ACG, 1963). The wild and wooly imagination of editor/writer Richard Hughes (who was actually named Leo Rosenbaum, according to some scholars) is showcased in this outrageous supernatural sleuth story. Hughes wrote this romp under yet another pen-name, Kurato Osaki. Pete Costanza's crisply inked art adds the perfect touch of dream-like surrealism to this outrageous Silver Age yarn. Each page has an approximate image area of 12" x 18", and the pages average Very Good condition.

    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.
