    Warren Kremer Black Cat Mystery #36 Cover Original Art (Harvey, 1952). It's a Frankenstein for the modern age pre-Code horror tale as "the Battle of the Monsters!" gets the cover spot for this issue. Warren Kremer is best-known for developing the Harvey Comics house style for their young readers' books (e.g., Richie Rich, Hot Stuff, Casper, etc...), but he can do a pretty mean looking reanimated corpse as well! Rendered twice-up scale in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 11.5" x 16.75". The header and logo are the original stats on a separate bristol board that was attached with production tape. The side bar stat paste-up is missing, leaving a bit of glue residue. The toned board has been affixed to a slightly larger thicker board for support. 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.
