hacomics2-20-16

The Mile High Pedigree copy of Suspense Comics #3 highlights a high-end selection of comics and comic art in Heritage Auctions’  inaugural Comics Platinum Night session May 18 in New York. The evening session kicks off a three-day, 1,300-lot event May 18-20 that will include spanning original Underground Comix art, original cover art and scarce, key books spanning every genre.

“Heritage has successfully held Platinum Night auctions in its U.S. coins and sports auctions and we decided the time is right to extend the practice to our comics offerings as well,” said Barry Sandoval, Director of Operations for Comics and Comic Art for Heritage Auctions. “Just 83 lots will comprise our first Platinum Night and we think collectors will relish the selection we’ve assembled for them.” The auction will take place at the Omni Berkshire Hotel, 21 East 52nd Street, with live online bidding and phone bidding also available.
