    Curt Swan

    Curt Swan - Adventure #312 Cover Recreation (DC, 1994). Surely one of the best known and most beloved artists of the Silver Age of comics, Curt Swan's run on The Legion of Superheroes is considered classic. His bold, confident line and his unerring storytelling sense was instantly recognizable to a generation of fans. Here he recreates one of his most famous covers, "The Super Sacrifice of the Legionnaires" from Adventure Comics #312. This was the story that brought Lightning Lad back to the Legion after his untimely death. Fully rendered in pencil on artboard, this piece measures approximately 12" x 18" and is signed by the artist in the lower right corner. A low-grade copy of the comic that was the basis for this recreation is included with this lot.

    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.
