    Frank Thorne - Tomahawk #130, page 17 Original Art (DC,1970). Tomahawk and his Rangers are saved from a rear attack by the Redcoats in "Deathwatch at Desolation Valley." But who saved their bacon -- could it have been the gorgeous gals with whom the Rangers had danced earlier in this yarn? -- could be! Frank Thorne illustrated the Robert Kanigher saga, and "good girl" art was one of his specialties, as seen in panel three. Thorne's art, particularly vintage pieces like this, is incredibly rare and desirable. The image area of the page is 10" x 15", and the art is in Excellent condition. From the collection of Richard and Wendy Pini. Richard says: "We met Frank Thorne as a result of the first Red Sonja Convention held in Cherry Hill, New Jersey in 1976; the story of Wendy's tenure as the living "She-Devil with a Sword" is by now legend. But we also were introduced to the work of this quirky wizard, so sensuous and uninhibited. Frank wasn't letting go any of his Sonja work, but I wanted an example so when I found this "Tomahawk" page, it was just as good in my eye."

    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.
