Joe Orlando Art
In September 2014, we at NateDSanders.com Auction House had the Ray Bradbury estate. One of the great pieces that month was the Joe Orlando art for “Vault of Horror #31” adapted from a Ray Bradbury story and signed by Ray Bradbury. Joe Orlando art can sell for as much as $10,000 for great pieces. Here is the description, picture and sales price of the Joe Orlando art:
Complete Joe Orlando hand-drawn comic tale, “The Lake”, signed and dated “Ray Bradbury Oct, 1988″. Comic was adapted by Al Feldstein from the Ray Bradbury short story of the same name and published in the June/July 1953 issue of ”EC Comics Vault of Horror”. 40 panels in all illustrate the heart-wrenching tale of a boy who witnesses the drowning of his childhood best friend. Feldstein initially adapted Bradbury’s stories without his permission, but eventually Bradbury allowed the use of the stories and ”The Lake” is one of only two official adaptations commissioned by Bradbury. Each page has a copyright stamp to verso, and the first page contains a copyright belonging to Bradbury. Measures 15” x 22”. Pencil marks on the margins of each page. An excellent example of Joe Orlando art. Very good. Sold for $7,500.
