    Description

    Steve Ditko and Don Heck - Tales of Suspense #47, page 3 Original Art (Marvel, 1963). Just eight issues after his debut, Iron Man faces -- the Melter! On this page, Bruno Horgan, alias the Melter, thinks back to his origin, and how he accidentally discovered the secret to melting iron. After that, choosing a supervillain name was a no-brainer. Classic Steve Ditko machinery highlights this drama-soaked page, a stellar piece from the Silver Age. The image area of the artwork measures 12.5" x 18.5". The final panel has a small stain; otherwise, the art 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.
