The Amazing Spider-Man

lf.jpgHeritage Auctions snagged a world record for comic art at a Beverly Hills auction last night. Todd McFarlane’s 1990 Spider-Man #328 original cover art brought in $657,250 at the vintage comics & comic art sale, beating McFarlane’s Spider-Man #1--thought to be the auction’s frontrunner--by nearly double.

The signed illustration shows Spider-man sparring with the Hulk. It was formerly part of the Shamus Modern Masterworks Collection. Martin Shamus owned a popular comics shop and had the opportunity to obtain many pieces of original comic book art directly from the artists soon after publication in the late eighties and early nineties.
