    Inscribed and Signed by the Artist

    [Art Spiegelman]. The Wild Party: The Lost Classic by Joseph Moncure March. New York: Pantheon Books, 1994.
    Comic book artist Art Spiegelman's take on March's hard boiled jazz-age classic, The Wild Party, a story about a vaudeville dancer who throws a booze- and sex-filled party. Due to its risqué nature it took several years for March to find a publisher, but once printed it was very successful despite being banned in Boston.

    First edition. Octavo. 111 pages. Dramatic black and white illustrations.

    Black embossed image of dancers over green wrappers; gray cloth spine with green lettering. A few bumps to board edges, but generally very fine. Red endpapers; inscribed and signed by Spiegelman "For the underground comix Hall of Fame," accompanied by a drawing of a bottle of alcohol sporting a skull and crossbones. Dust jacket shows faint soiling overall and slight rubbing at spine ends, but is generally very fine.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
