Jonathan Ross Makes A Major Silver Age Art Acquisition At SDCC

Jonathan Ross is a British tv celebrity and comic book creator — most recently working with Bryan Hitch on America’s Got Powers. Of course, we’ve known Jonathan Ross was a big comic fan for quite awhile.  Rich recently put together a little primer on Ross for Americans who don’t know much about him.

But he’s also a collector of original comic book art.  Asking price on this completely gorgeous cover of Nick Fury: Agent of Shield #3 by Jim Steranko from 1968 was $100,000, at original art dealer Mike “Romitaman” Burkey’s booth at SDCC. I’ve heard that Ross traded some other highly desirable original art for it instead.

Steranko in his prime, a stunning and memorable cover from Marvel’s late Silver Age burst of new titles (which included Iron Man, Captain America, and Silver Surfer also getting their own titles, among others)… that’s a fine piece of original comic art.

(Ross shown here with Vanguard Production‘s J. David Spurlock, who knows a thing or two about both Steranko and classic comic art in general, and puts together excellent collections of such.)
