Well, it isn’t exactly the duel that you think it is. Recently, a comic auction was held in Chicago. The auction included some of the most well-known characters in comic-book history such as Superman, Batman, and the Joker. However, an unlikely piece flew past the Man of Steel (pun intended). “Death Dealer 6”, a fantasy painting by well known science fiction and fantasy artist, Frank Frazetta, sold for a mind-blowing $1.8 million, rounded up. It was only expected to sell for $600,000. In comparison, a 1938 comic of Superman went for $573,600, but was expected to sell at a price of $650,000. In addition, a 1940 comic of Batman sold for a mere $227,050 (I say that facetiously). I think that the Death Dealer piece is amazing. While I’m not sure about the $1.8 million price tag, I can see why it (super)powered past the competition.
