Heritage Auctions is honored to be offering the Shamus Modern Masterworks Collection of Original Comic Book Art, the greatest group of late 1980s-1990s original comic book art to ever come to auction, beginning in our July 27-28 Signature auction in Beverly Hills.
This amazingly deep collection was put together by Martin Shamus, who, as the owner of a popular comics shop, had the unparalleled opportunity of the obtaining art directly from many of the artists right at the time the comics were published in the late ’80s and early ’90s. Given first choice, he also had the foresight to choose many of the most iconic examples by each artist. All of this artwork will be offered at no reserve.
