Description

    Bernie Wrightson Chamber of Darkness #8 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1970). This howling great cover not only features fantastic Bernie Wrightson art from his heyday, it was only his second cover for Marvel Comics, and it has what we think is his earliest published image of Frankenstein's Monster (in the background)! Well-remembered for his stunning work on an adaptation of Mary Shelly's Frankenstein for Marvel a full 13 years after this cover, Wrightson would only produce a handful of images for the House of Ideas in the interim. Created in ink over graphite on Sparta World Color cover Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". The logo and corner box are two layers of printed paste-up that has discolored slightly, with a bit of glue residue, and has a bit of tape on the issue number. Text is paste-up as well, with a bit of glue residue near it. The art image area is lightly tanned, and there is a touch of production ink stain in the bottom margin. Overall in 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.
