“Event Auction #42 was a terrific way to kick off ComicConnect’s 2020 auction season with an exclamation point,” Vincent Zurzolo, ComicConnect co-founder said. “Our 42nd multi-million-dollar comic, video game, and original comic art auction closed last week with nearly 2,500 lots going under the hammer – and it was a doozy.”

Records fell and hundreds of new bidders joined placing thousands of bids, according to Zurzolo.

“I’m so grateful to our world class bidders for bringing their A-game to the auction. And of course, thanks to our amazing consignors who place their trust in our team to get the most out of their collections at auction,” Zurzolo said. “Thank you to everyone who participated in Event Auction #42. We set more than a few records this go around, and we can’t wait to see you all again soon.”
