There are many great highlights already lined up for both the upcoming Featured Auction and Focused Auction. “We are introducing some key new titles from the John G. Fantucchio Pedigree runs including Detective Comics, Green Lantern, Incredible Hulk, Tales to Astonish, some key Journey Into Mystery issues and more. The reception to the Fantucchio Pedigree that we’ve been bringing into market over the past several months has been extremely strong as collectors recognize the incredible quality of these Silver Age examples, most in very high grade with gleaming white pages,” Nathanson said.
ComicLink is also offering Detective Comics #27, the first appearance of Batman and one of the highest sought books in comic collecting. “This example of this holiest of holy grails for Batman fans presents strongly for its grade and would make an incredible addition to the collection of any advanced collector. Batman seems to grow bigger with each generation, and his rarely available first appearance in unrestored condition is a true event any time it comes public auction,” Nathanson said.
