Comic Art Auction to Break Records
The original drawing by Fred Ray for the cover of Superman #14 is hitting the auction block. It’s projected to bring in somewhere between $500,000 to $750,000. Along with that will be the original cover to Detective Comics #69 which features the Joker. That’s supposed to sell between $400,000 to $500,000. The previous record is $380,000. The auction is taking place at ComicConnect.com.
The pieces are both owned by artist Jerry Robinson, who we got to meet at New York Comic Con, a legend in the comic book field, who is best known for co-creating Batman’s sidekick Robin and creating the Dark Knight’s nemesis The Joker. He rescued the pieces just before they were about to be thrown out.
Both covers are iconic and you can see below.
