A single page of art work from a 1984 Spider-Man comic guide offered at auction Thursday for a record $3.36 million.
Mike Zeck’s art work for page 25 from Marvel Comics’ “Secret Wars No. 8” brings the primary look of Spidey’s black swimsuit. The symbiote swimsuit would ultimately result in the emergence of the character Venom.
The record bidding, which began at $330,000 and soared previous $3 million, got here on the primary day of Heritage Auctions’ four-day comic occasion in Dallas.
The earlier record for an inside page of a U.S. comic guide was $657,250 for artwork from a 1974 problem of “The Incredible Hulk” that featured a tease for the primary look of Wolverine.
Also Thursday, one of many few surviving copies of Superman’s debut, Action Comics No. 1, offered for $3.18 million, placing it among the many priciest books ever auctioned.
