Das allererste Wolverine Artwork hat bei einer Auktion neulich mehr als eine halbe Million Dollar erzielt, insgesamt 657.250$, der höchste Preis für ein Interieur-Artwork überhaupt. Ich bin nicht der größte Wolverine-Fan – das ist Malcolm –, aber: Respekt!
The original artwork featuring the first ever appearance of Wolverine, by artists Herb Trimpe and Jack Abel, on the final page of The Incredible Hulk #180 (1974), arguably the most important debut of a comic book character in the last 40 years, realized a world record price for any page of American comic art, and a world record price for any page of interior comic art, by far, when it brought $657,250 (including 19.5% Buyer's Premium) on May 16, 2014, at Heritage Auctions in Dallas. It was sold to a high-end collector who wished to stay anonymous.
"We knew when this artwork surfaced that is was, without doubt, one of the most significant pieces of original comic art ever drawn," said Todd Hignite, Vice President of Heritage Auctions. "It has now brought a final price realized commensurate with that status."
