"$6+ million Heritage US Comics & Comic Art Auction evidences rising market
DALLAS, TX.- The original art from Alex Raymond's March 21, 1939 Flash Gordon and Jungle Jim Sunday comic strip (King Features Syndicate) brought $155,350 on Friday, May 29, 2015 at Heritage Auctions — the third highest price ever realized on a piece of original comic strip art at the company — to pace the company's $6+ million Comics & Comic Art Signature® Auction, May 28-30, 2015. "

In the future selected vintage limited edition and rare samples of art created by the current and former pioneering creators of the growing Black Age of Comics Movement's work will be getting these prices.  They are dynamic, very rare and in the forefront of a movement that is autonomous and now!

So indie that even the Black Age scene is aloof to it yet active in Chicago, Philadelphia, NY, San Francisco, Atlanta and Detroit with well attended annual events.  Do not fall into the old bias that "Comics" or illustratiions are not real art or high art.

I collect Black Age products. Their limited press run and innovative nature has a growth potential upsid. While their craft, skill and value impact rocks............ in the here and now.

I am in total disagreement with your comments. Another format is needed for these discussions!

Comment by carol finney on August 1, 2014 at 11:34am

I think your format needs another group. This is for collectors, not political views!
