"Unparalled" 5,000 copy Golden Age collection coming to auction

Beginning in June, Heritage Auctions will bring to market more than 5,000 high-grade Golden Age comic books that haven’t seen the light of day since they were purchased off newsstands in the 1940s.

The Promise Collection, as it’s now called, was assembled by a young boy who grew up, went to war and never returned. For decades, the books were kept safe by the brother who vowed to keep watch over the comics should anything happen to his sibling on the battlefield. Hence its moniker, proof of a promise kept.
The Promise Collection is one of the rare assemblages recognized as a pedigree by the Certified Guaranty Company – and it’s “the highest-quality pedigree collection, book for book, to debut in our hobby in the last 25 years,” says Heritage Auctions’ Senior Vice President Ed Jaster. “The collection’s depth and scope is almost unparalleled,” Jaster says. “I expect nearly two-thirds of the books will stand as the finest-known copies for any particular comic represented in the collection...”

Batman status question following another merger deal

Following today's announcement that AT&T is spinning off WarnerMedia for a merger with Discovery, it has been revealed that WB Games will be split up. The video game publisher will see some properties and studios end up with the newly formed company, while others will stay with AT&T. At this time, little in the way of specific information has been revealed, but it does raise questions about the company's video game properties, including Batman, Harry Potter, and Mortal Kombat. Obviously, these franchises remain important ones, but it goes to show just how far-reaching the impact of the deal will be.
