Weiss Auctions, March 26th
Rare early stories by the renowned American fantasy and science fiction artist Frank Frazetta (1928-2010), done when he was a boy in his mid-teens and quite possibly the earliest Frazetta comic art in existence, will be centerpiece lots in Weiss Auctions’ next big sale planned for Thursday, March 26th, online and in the Lynbrook, New York gallery at 74 Merrick Road. The auction, with a 10 am Eastern start time, is packed with more than 500 lots of comics, comic art, sports memorabilia, animation art and Disney collectibles. Highlights include another great group of artwork from the estate of the Polish-born American comic book artist Joe Kubert (1926-2012), Part 1 of “The Golden Age Comic Art Find” from the Bailey Publishing archive. The Bailey Publishing archive includes hundreds of pages of original Golden Age comic art, covers, stories and more, but it’s also where Frank Frazetta comes into the picture. Frazetta wrote his very first story as a teenage boy, titled Adventures of the Snowman, published by Bailey in the 1940s. And, while that story is not part of the auction, other related stories and artworks are. Internet bidding will be facilitated by Proxibid.com, Invaluable.com and Auctionzip.com. Phone and absentee bids will also be accepted. For more information, visit www.WeissAuctions.com. Updates are posted often.
