Welcome to the first Event Auction of 2015! We have an impressive auction for you with our headliner, Action Comics 1 CGC 5.0. It is a beautiful copy with vibrant colors, a crisp, sharp look and fresh, supple paper. Action Comics 1 will continue to be the blue chip of blue chips in the vintage comic market and this book will be in demand throughout our lifetime and beyond. Our purchase of the $3.2 million Action Comics 1 CGC 9.0 has created positive ripple effects in the marketplace and we are confident that trend will continue.
Action and Superman are very well represented in this auction. Early issues, pedigrees, knockout keys, and so much more are all packed in this catalog for your consideration. Within you’ll find two copies of Marvel Comics 1, Detectives 2, 3, 31 and 33. First appearances by the Spectre, Green Arrow and Aquaman are covered by More Fun Comics 51, 53, and 73. Startling Comics 49 with the greatest robot cover in comic book history can be found alongside the first issues of Wonder Woman, Captain America Comics, All Flash, and Crime Does Not Pay.
The iconic look of Archie Comics is coming to an end. Starting this spring, Archie and the gang will have a new beginning that will lead to an increase in demand for early Archies. A stunning, unrestored copy of Pep Comics 22 CGC 6.5 and Archie Comics 1 CGC 6.5 are two of our major league, heavy hitters up for bidding. We have several other early Archies in the catalog so keep a sharp eye open.
The straight run of Journey into Mystery (issues 1-49 plus more), including highest graded and pedigrees, is sure to meet the stratospheric demand of passionate collectors. Covers and interiors by artists like Everett, Burgos, Kubert, Powell, Heath, Romita, Ayers, Colan and Ditko grace many of these comics. This is a great time to build a run. We’ve also got super rare ashcans available starting with Flash Comics 1 CGC 9.4 and continuing with Boy Commandos, Commandos, and several more of these rarities. You’ve never seen a selection like this in one auction!
Silver Age investors will find four copies of Amazing Fantasy from which to choose included a restored CBCS 9.4. High grade copies of Tales to Astonish 27 and 35, X-Men 1, Avengers 1, Tales of Suspense 39, Brave and the Bold 28, a beautiful run of Amazing Spider-Man with five copies of the first issue as well as high grade copies of 2, 5, 8, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 18, & 50, and a high grade Fantastic Four group with issues 1, 4, 5, 6, & 12 are also expecting a lot of attention.
The depth and breadth of the original art section varies from Humberto Ramos to Bill Ward and all the greats in between. The auction has a gorgeous Kirby page from Incredible Hulk 3 as well as two Fantastic Four pages, two pages from Tales to Astonish, an Adams’ Detective page and a Silver Surfer by Buscema that is sure to impress. A devilishly delightful Marvel Spotlight 22 cover by Gil Kane featuring Daimon, Ghost Rider and Satana is crafted in the Mighty Marvel Manner. The Death Dealer painting by Simon Bisley is breathtaking. The first full appearance of Apocalypse from X-Factor by Jackson Guice will make an impact. Another heartwarming selection from the Whitman Warehouse find is featured along with a side of grittier art from The Goon, The Boys, Preacher, and NYX. There’s plenty here for both the vintage and the modern art lover.
