Artist Jae Lee is auctioning off the original art for his Dark Knight III: The Master Race #1 variant cover. Auctioned at ComicLink.com, Lee's illustration is a homage to Frank Miller's cover to The Dark Knight Returns. The auction amount for Lee's original artwork has already surpassed $2,000, with the bidding closing on Thursday, December 3.
"I've been a big fan of both Frank Miller and the original Dark Knight series since it came out in 1986. I was thirteen years old and was mesmerized by it. I'm thrilled to be offering Jae Lee's Dynamic Forces variant cover for Dark Knight III #1," said Josh Nathson, founder of ComicLink. "It's an honor and a privilege now to have a cover associated with the latest entry to Miller’s Dark Knight saga in the ComicLink auction. I am also a big fan of Jae Lee, who has a unique artistic style. His homage to the original Dark Knight returns cover is very impactful; it really does it justice."
The Dark Knight III: The Master Race #1 debts November 25, and Lee's cover is available via Dynamic Forces.
