The trend setting artwork of Jerry Robinson from the 1942 Detective Comics #67 is amongst the first
original Batman art covers to survive in his personal collection for over the past 70 years! The legendary
Golden Age artist included Supervillain the Penguin for the first time on a DC comic cover as a part of
the exclusive one of three Treasures from the Robinson Collection. This black and white artwork has
been penciled and inked in detailing the Penguin escaping the Dynamic Duo on an ostrich. It will be
auctioned off for the first time ever at the Heritage Auctions’ Vintage Comics & Comic Art Signature(r)
Auction in Beverly Hills. All Batman fans will have to fight hard for a chance to prove their right to own
this iconic comic book. It has been currently estimated to fetch over $300,000.
Jerry Robinson was one of the few members of the original Batman team to create the world famous
Supervillan, the Joker and Batman’s archetypal sidekick, Robin. Robinson’s numerous honors include the
National Cartoonists Society Milton Caniff Lifetime Achievement Award and the San Diego Comic-Con
Eisner Hall of Fame.
