In the category of comic art, the auction Frank Frazetta's Egyptian Queen was one of the clear highlights (see "Frank Frazetta's 'Egyptian Queen' On the Block"). It sold for $5.4 million at Heritage's May 16-18 Comics & Comic Art Auction in Chicago, and tripled the previous price record for any piece of American published comic book art which was also a Frazetta piece, Death Dealer 6, which sold for $1.79 million (see “Original Art Records Set”).Heritage Auction of 'Marvel Comics #1' Realizes A Record Price") and Captain America #1 from the San Francisco Pedigree (Timely, 1941) CGC NM 9.4, off-white to white pages, went for $915,000 (see "'Captain America' #1 Gets Record Price at Heritage Auction"). On the DC Comics side, a Superman #1 CGC VG/FN 5.0 cream to off-white pages landed a final sale of $465,000.
