Original art for TMNT sells for $250k
The original art for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 received 47 bids on eBay and broke records after selling for $250,099. Included were the 40 pages of original artwork, the original pen and ink cover and the original logo design, a first printing of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1, the original artwork for the inside cover, and a pencil layout for the first advertisement for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as it appeared in the Comic's Buyers Guide. Kind of makes me wish I hadn't thrown out the original pencils for Action Comics #1. And by original pencils I mean the crayon drawing of a dinosaur my cousin gave me. Dinosaurs weren't purple. C'mon, man!
