Original Jose Gonzalez Vampirella Pinup Art from Vampirella #101 (Dec, 1981)

Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $5,462.50

Offered is an incredible example of Jose Gonzalez' definitive Vampirella pinup work, produced for use as the backdrop of the table of contents pages in Vampirella. These pinups are the images which define Vampirella, and arguably represent the pinnacle of artistic achievement both for Warren Publishing and the legendary Jose Gonzalez. Recent auction records show that when offered, the prices realized for Gonzalez Vampirella pinups have begun to rival some cover paintings. This is not surprising, as these pinups hold an appeal for collectors that is unmatched by any other Vampirella artwork, and are widely recognized as among the greatest series of masterpieces of modern pinup art. This work was used as the backdrop to the title page of Vampirella #101 (December 1981). It is in virtually perfect condition, executed in pencils on white bristol, signed and dated 1981. The original artwork is accompanied by a copy of Vampirella #101. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$4,000. SOLD FOR $5,462.50
