Spider-Man’s Black Costume Origin Page Sells for $3.6 Million

Page 25 from Secret Wars #8 was a hot item at Heritage Auctions recently. The page by Mike Zeck features Spider-Man in his “black costume” and recently sold for $3,360,000. That costume would turn out to be a symbiote that would later go on and create Venom.

Bidding opened at $33,000 but quickly rose as the comic page saw a bidding war that set records.

Moments before page 25 went up for auction, page 24 sold for $288,000.

That’s $3,648,000 for two pages from the iconic comic. The original owners name wasn’t revealed but purchased the pages in the 1980s and held on to them ever since.
