ART: DARK KNIGHT Page Breaks Auction Record!
A classic image (above) from Frank Miller’s seminal comic The Dark Knight Returns sold today at Heritage Auctions for $448,125. This is the largest price ever paid for a page of comic book art at a public auction. However, since much comic art is sold in confidential private sales, it may not be the largest price ever paid.
The previous record was for the sale of Frank Frazetta’s cover for Weird Fantasy #29 which sold for $380,000.
