Not me!

In the same auction, the art for the famous Crumb 'Stoned Agin' poster sold for $690,000!

There's some rich people out there who like underground stuff..

Yeah, I just saw that one! Baby Boomers have all the cash.

Original Art heads are speculating that the mystery buyer of Dredd stuff might be Manuel-From-Fawlty-Towers-Shame broadcaster, Jonathan Ross*. He bought the McMahon Dredd-In-Big-Chair cover that was recently up for auction, apparently.

I noticed this detail on the original art, which made me laugh:




* Although, like every UK comic fan of his age, Ross's primary interest is in sixties Marvel, he seems to have a genuine interest in some aspects of 2000ad art, rather than just being a speculator or compulsive collector: https://youtu.be/62zIih0bdLc?t=598

Makes me feel better about being the under-bidder on that one! I may be a comfortable Gen X'er but I can't compete with Wossy's Boomer millions!
