Todd McFarlane's SPIDER-MAN #1 Cover Art Goes Up For Sale At Auction
"Torment" is considered a classic Spider-Man/Lizard story by comic book fans, so now seems like the perfect time for the original cover art to go on sale in order to coincide with the release of The Amazing Spider-Man. How much? Find out here.
The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the cover art for Spider-Man #1 has gone up for sale at Heritage Auctions for a whopping $195,000. Originally published in 1990, it is one of the best-selling comic books of all-time, selling 2.35 million copies. Whether it now will end up selling for a record price is unknown, but there is still 19 days left to bid if you fancy emptying your savings accounts. Bidding closes at 10pm on July 25th before a live auction the following day. Todd McFarlane's "Torment" is a beloved tale for most fans of Spider-Man, and while the writing isn't considered to be the best (something McFarlane himself has acknowledged in the past) the art is fantastic, making this piece a must-buy. If, you know, you're rich.
