Incredible $66k record for the Batman TPB cover by Tim Sale, $38k for this Daredevil splash by Frank Miller went near the $40k record, $52k for the X-Men lito art by Alex Ross, $130k for the Spidey cover by McFarlane, $100k for the Kirby/Ditko Spidey page, $42k for the X-Men cover triptych by J.

This week on eBay
DC: the most watched auction, this week is this very detailed Batman sketch by Jim Lee, still at a very low price. Much less detailed, but CGC certified, this Wolverine sketch is going higher for now. I find it funny.
