We've been looking at the auction from Heritage, which may be their most significant comic book auction to date with some insanely valuable, desirable, and influential examples of original comic book artwork, such as these two pieces by Alex Ross, one from the Power Of Shazam, another from Uncle Sam, both fully painted and originally published by DC Comics. It is rare for one such piece to come up for auction; two pieces are even rarer. And the prices for each, well, I mean no one knows where they are going to end up. But expect houses to be remortgaged.
