Heritage Auctions estimates that the art for page 10 from issue #3 of Frank Miller and Klaus Janson's The Dark Knight Returns (1986) will fetch at least $100,000 when it goes on the block on May 5.

Prior to the four-issue series of The Dark Knight Returns, Batman had lost his perch among the superhero elite. When Miller's masterpiece debuted it created an almost instant buzz and rejuvenated Batman as DC's most popular character. In the process it also helped revitalize the comics industry as a whole.
UPDATE: Nick Rallo, Dallad Observer Web Editor, says: "Saw your post about the Frank Miller Dark Knight original -- thought I'd pass along our visit to Heritage Auction to get an up-close look at the page. Super exciting for us nerds over here."
