The Frazetta oil, Escape on Venus, sold for $660,000, the third highest price via Heritage for a Frazetta piece. The oil was created for the cover of the 1974 edition of the Edgar Rice Burroughs Escape on Venus novel. The price, while high, was below the price paid for Death Dealer 6 ($1,792,500, see “Original Art Records Set”) and At The Earth’s Core ($1,075,500).
The top comic in the auction was a CGC 9.0 copy of Incredible Hulk #1, which sold for $264,000.
