Frank Miller Dark Knight Returns splash page sells for $448,125

Original Artwork goes for big bucksBlastr is reporting that “Original comic book art has seen jawdropping prices set in recent auctions, but those record-breaking number are usually reserved for covers from Silver Age crusaders like Superman and Spiderman, and rarely anything from the modern era. But that all changed last night.”

“A Batman and Robin splash page from Frank Miller’s revolutionary 1986 four-issue series, The Dark Knight Returns, was offered as part of Heritage Auctions’ Signature Vintage Comics and Comic Art Auction held Thursday in New York. With an estimated pre-auction value of $125,000, it was easily one of the most valuable pieces of American comic book art to go up on the block in years. Buzz building up to auction time reached a feverish pitch.”
