World record: Batman comic auctioned for $ 2.2 million

A 1940 Batman comic book sold for over $ 2.2 million in the US. This is a worldwide auction record for a Batman issue, said the auction house Heritage Auctions on Thursday (local time) in Dallas, Texas.  The  buyer wanted to remain anonymous, said spokesman Robert Wilonsky of the German press agency.

Even before the start of the live auction on Thursday, more than two dozen bidders had pushed the price up since mid-December. On Wednesday, the bid shot up to just under $ 1.9 million (including buyer’s premium).

This far surpassed the previous Batman record holder. In November, Heritage auctioned the 1939 “Detective Comics # 27” issue with the first appearance of the iconic Batman figure for $ 1.5 million.

On the cover of the now auctioned comic strip “Batman # 1”, Batman and his young companion Robin fly against a yellow background and the red skyline of Gotham City. © The  characters Joker, Hugo Strange and Catwoman also appear in the booklet. © The  auction house announced that the magazine was in almost perfect condition. A collector bought it in 1979 for $ 3,000 in Houston, Texas. © The  original booklet cost ten cents in 1940.
