Check THIS out:
Heritage Auctions has set a new price record for an original piece of comic art by selling page 10 of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns #3, by Frank Miller and Klaus Janson, to an anonymous collector for $448,125.

I'm amazed. More valuable than a Frazetta cover? Sure it's iconic, and was the comic that revitalized Batman, but... more valuable than a Kirby splash?

Since we are on the topic of Batman I was looking at the fan letters in the back of Detective Comics 876 and I noticed that one of the letters was from someone in York, which I thought was neat. Just thought I should mention that.
