DALLAS, Texas: The original drawings of a single comic book page from a 1984 issue of Spiderman has sold for $3.36 million at a Texas auction.

Drawn by Mike Zeck, the page was featured in Marvel Comics' Secret Wars number 8 in 1984.

Of note, the $3.36 million winning bid was more than ten times the original opening bid.

In 2021, a 1962 Spider-Man comic sold at auction for $3.6m. Prior to that, a Superman comic book was the most expensive comic ever sold.

The Associated Press reports that the earlier record for purchasing a single page of a comic was $657,250.

The Spiderman art work was sold by Heritage Auctions on January 13.

"When it hit its final price, shattering all previous comic art records, the auction gallery erupted with cheers," Heritage Auctions said in a press release.

The auction house has not released information about who the buyer or the seller is.

First published in 1962, Spiderman was created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.
