Looking at the The February 2011 Heritage Auction

It's that time again. Another killer Heritage auction is queued up for our bidding pleasure.

You know, no matter what the other auctions do the most exciting listings of the year are always Heritage's. That's just the reality.

This auction is no exception.

Let's look at some lots.

Archie Comics #1 (MLJ, 1942) CGC VF+ 8.5 White pages

Clearly the most exciting single comic in the auction for me. Early Archies are tough in high grade. This white paged beauty is about to lighten some lucky bidder's wallet in a big way.

John Byrne and Terry Austin X-Men #116 Cover Original Art

I've always liked this cover. It's a classic "comic book" cover. There's some Schomburg style danger and it's great tease to the story within. This is going to sell for many thousands of dollars.

Detective Comics #31 (DC, 1939) CGC GD+ 2.5 Off-white pages

One of the all-time classic covers.

Frank Miller and Klaus Janson Batman: The Dark Knight Returns #3 page 24 Original Art

Just seeing this page makes me want to read the whole book.

It's really interesting to see the adjustments that were made to the published page.

Frank Miller and Terry Austin Daredevil #191 "Roulette" page 18 Original Art

Anyone have any idea what this might go for? Not that I'm asking for any specific reason.

The Avengers #4 Northland pedigree (Marvel, 1964) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white to white pages

That's a really nice copy of a great book.

Jack Kirby and Vince Colletta Fantastic Four #40 Awesome Thing page 14 Original Art (Marvel, 1965)…. Original Comic Art: Panel Pages

Are you kidding me with this page? Does it get any better? I don't think so.

Jim Starlin Warlock #5 Cover Original Art

Any Adam Warlock fans are in for a treat with this auction. It's full of great material. This cover is killer.

Showcase #22 Green Lantern – Savannah pedigree (DC, 1959) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white pages

This'll sell for a couple of bucks. I wonder how much? Where are we on the Green Lantern hype scale? This auction will help gauge that.

The Flash #105 Savannah pedigree (DC, 1959) CGC VF 8.0 Cream to off-white pages

I've never owned a copy of this book. Feel free to buy this one for me and send it to me for my birthday.

Jeff Jones Creepy #29 "Angel of Doom" Splash Page 1 Original Art

Is this in The Studio?

Dale Keown Original, First Ever Pitt Drawing Double-Page Illustration Original Art

That's pretty neat.

Fantastic Four #60 (Marvel, 1967) CGC NM/MT 9.8 Off-white to white pages

My favorite run in all of comics ends with this issue. While FF continued to be great beyond this point, the sweet spot for me was really #39-60.

Fantastic Four #57 (Marvel, 1966) CGC NM/MT 9.8 White pages

This stuff makes me feel like I'm 11.

Will Eisner The Spirit (Weekly Comic Book) "P'Gell" page 3 Original Art dated 5-25-47

A page from a very memorable character and story. Nothing flashy about it, but Eisner didn't always have to be flashy to make things happen.

Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird Gobbledygook #1 Cover Original Art

I think a lot of people are going to be very interested in seeing where this cover ends up.

Gobbledygook #1 (Mirage Studios, 1984) Condition: VF+

Almost as many people are probably curious about where this little gem will end up. Personally, I'm fascinated by both of these lots. There's just so much unknown about them it makes for great auction theater.

Real Life Comics #3 (Nedor Publications, 1942) Condition: GD/VG

The Hitler cover to end all Hitler covers.

Marvel Mystery Comics #9 (Timely, 1940) CGC GD+ 2.5 Cream to off-white pages

Not bad looking for a 2.5.

Jim Starlin Strange Tales #178 page 27 Original Art

Sadly, mounted. Otherwise… what a great page. Pure Starlin awesomeness.

Strange Adventures #205 Savannah pedigree (DC, 1967) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white to white pages

Someone should make a Deadman movie.

The Flash #135 Savannah pedigree (DC, 1963) CGC NM 9.4 Cream to off-white pages

Green Flash covers are a favorite of mine. I'm not sure why.

And there you have it, another killer Heritage Auction. I'm even bidding on something other than Daredevils this time.
