Mav’s Comic Roundup

 Comic Universe Anniversary Auction 

 

535655_159869887499576_844096383_nThis past Saturday, February 16, I once again had the pleasure of hosting the Annual Comic Universe Anniversary Auction, and as usual it was a great night filled with comic craziness.

The auction started at 5PM and once again the place was packed both with familiar faces and new ones and the swag didn’t disappoint as they offered some truly unique items.

Three different full size standees went up for auction, including an incredibly rare one that never saw the light of day in stores.  There were also autographed posters from Jim Lee, Bryan Glass and MIchael Oeming.

Statues, special variant comics and hardcover comics made up the bulk of the sale, but there were also some vintage Star Wars toys and other classic and out of print materials.

The highlight of the night of course was the “Mystery Box”  A comic long box full of figures, toys, books and comic supplies.  It’s a blind bid item that always garners a lot of interest.  As the bidding went higher for the box the stores owner added items to the lot making it an incredible deal that sold for over $700 dollars.  The original value was over $1300.

Thanks to Frank and Ella for having me out to host once again and to everyone who came out.  I hope you had a great time, I know I did.


Now I’m off to finish this weeks Comic Roundup.
