The original 1984 page of the “Secret Wars” comic strip featuring Spider-Man sold for $ 3.36 million at auction in the United States on Thursday.
This makes “Spider-Man” the most powerful superhero in the auction.
This page is from the eighth issue of the “Secret Wars” series published by Marvel Comics in 1984 and 1985. It was created by Mike Jack and contains three boxes.
In it, the superhero first appears in a black costume, which contributes to the formation of a symbiote (an alien parasite) and the super villain “Venom”.
The auction house, Heritage Auctions, story page 25 “includes the major development announced on the cover! In which Peter Parker (the teen hiding behind the Spider-Man mask) gets his new black dress.”
He added, “This is a suit that holds a secret! It soon becomes clear that she is alive and has her own plan, which is why Venom was born.”
The page was initially offered for $ 330,000.
The previous record for selling the original page of an American comic strip was sold for $ 657,000 in 2014, a page that first appeared on Wolverine in 1974 in “The Incredible Hulk” magazine.
During a four-day auction in Dallas, Texas, Heritage Auctions reported that a copy of the 1938 first edition of Superman’s debut “Auction Comics” sold for $ 3.18 million.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the other two copies have fetched high prices at auction in the past.
