    Description

    Todd McFarlane Batman #423 Cover Original Art (DC, 1988). Todd McFarlane's only cover for this series came in 1988, the year when he was busy setting Marvel on its ear with his stint on Amazing Spider-Man. Not much DC art by McFarlane exists, and much of that is from the early years as he was still developing his signature style on features like Infinity Inc. Here's a chance to own his striking rendition of DC's number one character. The art has an image area of 10" x 15". Excellent condition. Signed by the artist at the bottom. The "McFarlane" signature in the form of a Batman logo is glued onto a separate piece of paper that in turn was glued onto the art. Included with this lot are additional stats with the Comics Code logo and a $1 price, presumably for Canadian editions. From the Shamus Modern Masterworks Collection.

    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.
