ComicLink is actively accepting comic books and original comic, fantasy, and illustration art for upcoming auctions.

“Bidding in our just-completed March Focused Auction had well over 10% more bidder participation than last year’s auction from the same period, demonstrating that the demand for quality vintage comic books continues to be very strong,” ComicLink founder and Managing Director Josh Nathanson said.

The Spring Featured Auction launches on May 14 and closes the last week of May through the first week of June. Many highlights have been posted recently to the auction preview, including major Golden and Silver Age keys, high grades, and world class original art.
