A single comic book page from a 1984 issue of Spider-Man which debuted the now-iconic black costume has been sold at auction for $3.36m (£2.5m). The work was drawn by Mike Zeck and featured on page 25 of Marvel Comics’ Secret Wars no 8.
The artwork was sold at auction in Dallas, Texas, for more than ten times its original opening bid. Last year, a 1962 Spider-Man comic sold at auction for $3.6m, beating Superman as the most expensive comic ever sold.
