A single page of a Spider-Man comic book has sold for $3.36 million at auction.
And in the issue, released in 1984, the black costume of Spider-Man appeared for the first time.
The cartoon, by Mike Zeke, appeared on page 24 of issue 8 of the Marvel series Secret Wars.
The drawing sold in Dallas, Texas, for more than ten times the price at which the auction opened.
And last year, a number of the Spider-Man series, released in 1962, sold at auction for $ 3.6 million, exceeding the price of a number of the “Superman” series, which was considered the most expensive in the history of comics.
The black outfit, which appeared on the sold page, led to the superhero Venom.
The highest price for a single page of a comic book was $657,250, according to the Associated Press. This was an inside page in a 1974 issue of the Green Man series “Hulk”, in which the character “Wolverine”, which belongs to the “X-Men” series, appeared for the first time.
The Spider-Man page sold out on Thursday on the first day of a four-day event organized by Heritage Auctions.
In a press release, the auction house said, “When (the page) reached its final price, breaking all previous records for comic artwork, a lullaby erupted in the auction house.”
The statement did not mention information about the seller or the buyer.
Spider-Man was created by Stan Lee, who first appeared in issue number 15 of the Marvel Comics series “Amazing Fantasy” in 1962.
Stan Lee was a writer and former president of Marvel Comics. In addition to Spider-Man, Stan Lee has created other characters such as “Hulk”, “Iron Man” and “The Fantastic Four”.
He was also known for portraying his superheroes suffering from everyday problems, such as acne and dandruff.
He also pioneered the creation of characters such as “Dear Devil,” who was blind, and “Black Panther,” Marvel’s first black superhero.
The Spider-Man comic series has inspired several films, the most recent of which is “Spider-Man: No Home”, starring Tom Holland.
