Heritage Auctions will be auctioning off a piece of original art from Frank Miller and Klaus Janson‘s 1986 comic book series The Dark Knight Returns this May in New York City.
The auction house expects the art, which is the Batman and Robin splash page 10 from The Dark Knight Returns #3, to fetch over $100,000 at the event.
“This splash page, to my mind, is the single most memorable image from the entire book and the greatest image from the decade ever to come to market,” said Ed Jaster, Senior vice President of Heritage Auctions, “as well as one of the handful of most desirable pieces of original comic art from any era to come to market. This one has everything going for it and has already generated considerable buzz in collecting circles.”
Mark Millar, creator of many of the most talked about comic books of recent memory including Kick-Ass, Nemesis, Old Man Logan, and Civil War, has posted an interesting auction on Ebay for his next creation, Superior. In this auction, Millar has left it to fans and do-gooders alike to name the title character’s secret identity, all in the name of charity.
In the past, Millar has held auctions for roles in Kick-Ass and Nemesis on behalf of special needs units in a school where his brother, Dr. Bobby Millar, has tirelessly raised money for many handicapped children, and the Superior auction is no exception.
Quite the interesting new item is up for bidding on eBay, and the winner will find themselves the proud new owner of an entire video game store!
The store, located in Grand Junction, Colorado, is currently still active and the owners have decided to part ways with it. If you win the auction, you can either continue running the store from Colorado, OR you can have the entire inventory shipped to your location, were you can add it to your own inventory or start your own new game store. Shipping seems fair; if you pay the asking price or more the first 750 miles are free and $1 each additional mile.
Included in the inventory is games from all platforms, including Nintendo, SEGA, Super NES, PlayStation, PS2, PS3, Xbox, Xbox 360, Wii and many others. There’s also game systems, accessories, displays and signs and shelving and every bit of what comes with a game store. And the most intriguing part of all of this? There’s a Buy it Now option for $30,000, which, if you have it, isn’t bad at all for what you get. According to the seller there’s $60,000 worth of inventory included.
So you’re a Trekkie, eh? These are the days that you dream of.
A company in Las Vegas called Propworx is preparing to sell around a thousand different items from Star Trek: The Experience, which ran for ten years and shut down in 2008. The many items will apparently be sold via auction and in a giant warehouse (okay, so it’s not really a yard sale, but close enough) tomorrow.
The attraction featured many replications and props from the Trek universe, and also featured some popular rides. These rides included an encounter with the Klingons and even a 4D Borg attack.
The final day of the Battlestar Galactica live charity auction is underway right now at California’s Pasadena Convention Center, with bidding to start at 10am PST.
If you can’t make it down to the Center, you can watch the live stream at Auction Network and bid on the items up for grabs in real time.
A portion of the proceeds from the auction, which has over 900 items available from the SCI FI Channel series, will go to benefit United Way.
This final auction will include items like Lee Adama’s (Jamie Bamber) bomber jacket; the painting that Kara “Starbuck” Thrace (Katee Sackhoff) painted in her Caprica apartment before the Cylon attacks; the Galactica Podium; Admiral Adama’s (Edward James Olmos) desk chair; a full size Viper Mark II ship; and a full size Blackbird Stealth ship. The infamous red dress worn by Number Six (Tricia Helfer) and a Starbuck flight suit will also be offered in this auction.
