Watchmen Page One Sells For $33,460

From an anonymous internet bidder, the first page of Watchmen has sold for $33,640. 21 bidders and no reserve. This is the highest a Watchmen page has sold for to date.

And you know what? I think it's a good investment.

It arguably formalised a new language to comics, and showed people what could be done with the comics medium (even if most people just decided to make grim'n'gritty superheroes instead). Oh and it has the first appearance of Rorschach (spoilers!).

It's a hell of a lot of money for non-splash comic book page.

But I reckon it will keep going up in value. We haven't heard the last of this one.
