DescriptionFrank Frazetta Buck Rogers Hand Colored, Limited Edition Print #1/2, Remarqued With an Original Nude Sketch (1971). This incredible image was originally drawn for Frank Frazetta's famed series of Buck Rogers Famous Funnies covers in the 1950s. Deemed too violent, it was altered and published by Bill Gaines as the cover of Weird Science-Fantasy #29 -- widely considered one of the finest comic book covers of all time. For this print, Frazetta returned to its original "Buck Rogers" state, hand watercolored, signed, numbered, and dated each impression and added a specially drawn nude (called a "remarque") in its lower border. According to Russ Cochran, the publisher of the print, this is actually #2 of the total edition of 50, which Frazetta mis-numbered "1/2." The sheet size measures 14" x 18.5" and, aside from being lightly sunstruck, the piece 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.View More Testimonials
