how much would you pay for a vintage comics cover art? i am guessing ordinary folks like us would not be forking out six-figure for it, would they? in anyway, if you are a (dead) serious (and filthy rich) collector, this particular item might be of interest to you: the Jerry Robinson Detective Comics #67 First Penguin Cover Original Art (DC, 1942). it is one of the earliest Batman covers known to still exist in the 21st century and is the very first Batman comic to feature supervillain The Penguin on its cover. this vintage cover art has been tucked away for nearly 70 years in Jerry Robinson’s personal collection, and is now offered as part of the Heritage Auctions’ Vintage Comics & Comic Art Signature Auction to be held at Beverly Hills. the Jerry Robinson Detective Comics #67 First Penguin Cover Original Art (DC, 1942) is expected to fetch around $300,000 when it goes under the hammer. with that kind of estimate, you really have to be a staunch Batman fan or comics collector to be able to make that call. also keeping in mind that’s just for the cover art.
