  ComicConnect: Closes 2017 With Record Auction Sales

“What a wonderful year this has been for our hobby,” said Vincent Zurzolo, COO of ComicConnect, the Guinness World Record auction house. “2017 was, by an enormous amount, the best year ComicConnect has ever had, and I want everyone who won an auction, consigned an item, or placed even a single bid to know how much I appreciate it. Thank you!”

ComicConnect’s Event Auction XXXIII concluded last week with multiple record sales. “We work tirelessly to promote every single lot in the auction,” Zurzolo continued. “We’ve heard from many, many consignors letting us know how pleased they are with the results.”

In this auction, investment collectors were offered the nicest Walking Dead collection in the world, the stunning single-owner Hidden Valley Collection, and over a thousand lots of the best comic books and original comic art on the market.
