    Russ Heath - Original Lone Ranger Comic Strip Art, Lot of 3 Strips (1980s). Debuting in the wake of the atrocious early-'80s film version of the Lone Ranger, this comic strip achieved a much higher level of artistry than the movie, and is a favorite among fans of the Lone Rider of the Plains. Even more importantly, most of Russ Heath's artwork for this series (which was penned by long-time DC scribe Cary Bates) has been destroyed, and probably less than a hundred of the daily strips survive. Offered here is a lot of three consecutive strips featuring an exceptionally moody and evocative sequence in which the sleeping Ranger and Tonto almost fall victim to a deadly rattlesnake, only to be saved by trusted steed Silver. Filled with Heath's realistic renderings and rich, deep blacks this would be a real showcase for any fan of the Lone Ranger and/or Russ Heath. Three strips, each measuring 6" x 17.5", beautifully rendered with virtually no white-out.

    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.
