    Jaime Hernandez Penny Century #2 Cover Original Art (Fantagraphics, 1998). What's this -- Maggie about to be attacked by a zombie? Back that car out of there fast, girl! Artist Jaime Hernandez proves himself ahead of the pack with this Penny Century cover, predating The Walking Dead #1 by several years. The magazine-format Love and Rockets ended with #50 in 1996, and the artist has never sold any of his post-magazine size originals before recently allowing Heritage to bring this stunning art to the market. We're thrilled to continue our selection with the complete artwork for Penny Century #2, a one-person anthology featuring many types of stories and all of Hernandez's greatest characters: Maggie, Hopey, Ray, Izzy, and many more-including of course, the bombshell herself, Penny Century! Hernandez's artwork from this time period is absolutely jaw-dropping, as immediately evident from this stunning original cover art. The illustration is in ink on Bristol board, with an image area of 8.5" x 13", and is in Excellent 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.
