    Description

    Ed Hannigan and Joe Sinnott - The Defenders #57 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1978). They had no headquarters, no I.D. cards, and no "DefendiCar," and at the end of the mission, they all went home again. The successful 70s team book, The Defenders, was billed as a "non-team," consisting of loosely affiliated misfits who convened at times of need, when Earth was threatened by some strange otherworldly force. A.I.M. sets their sights on the Hulk, Hell-Cat, Nighthawk, and the "Female Fury," Ms. Marvel, in this classic cover illustration. The art has an image area of 10" x 15", and includes the original logo, and masthead paste-up art. There is a bit of overall aging apparent, and a very slight bit of soiling in the logo paste-up; otherwise the condition is Excellent condition. Signed by Ed Hannigan at the bottom left (slightly faded).

    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.
