Comiclink: the last CL auction was on August, 8 so I set an alarm to check the website in early September, to see the next auction lots… Sorry, seems like on August, 31 they had an incredible Featured Auction that I totally missed.
Not only that but many auction records were broken, let’s start with the jaw-dropping $93k paid for the cover to Incredible Hulk #390 by Dale Keown, $135k is the new record for interior Spider-Man original art by Todd McFarlane (the cover to Amazing #324 was also sold for $97k).
This Wolverine cover sold for $26k is probably a new record for Adam Kubert, as well as this Hellboy cover by Mignola sold for $52k, this very rare X-Men cover by Joe Mad was sold for $30k, the cover to Firestorm #1, the most important piece in the career of Pat Broderick, was sold for $21k (sold a year ago for $18,5k, the seller earned $500…).
