Joe Mannarino

In the realm of science fiction, there is no artist that flies higher than
Frank Frazetta. Probably best known for his depictions of Conan,
Tarzan and John Carter of Mars, Frazetta’s genesis and lifelong love
affair in the industry was found in comics, as he lent his pen and brush
to titles like Famous Funnies, Li’l Abner, Johnny Comet and assisting on
the Flash Gordon daily strip, among plenty of others. But Frazetta was
unlike many other illustrators of his time. He knew and believed he
was the best, and this magnitude of confidence drove his career through
sometimes bumpy roads that ultimately led to the promise land of
fame and notoriety. When Frazetta’s oil on canvas painting “Egyptian
Queen,” originally produced as the cover for Eerie magazine #23 in
mid-1969, sold for $5.4 million at Heritage Auctions in May, 2019, it set records as the most expensive piece of original com-
ic book art ever auctioned, as well as the top price for any painting ever sold at that auction house. And if you’ve ever taken a
good look at the Frazetta original art market, you would find the names Joe and Nadia Mannarino unavoidable. For when the
Frazettas were ready to sell the originals, that is who they called. We sat down with Joe, the director of comics and comic art at
Heritage Auctions, to talk about this enigmatic figure and how the market finally came to meet his expectations.

Popeye lands close to three dozen lots in the
catalog. Could it be that he muscled his way
in to get noticed? In any case, he presents
himself as a trick pilot, with box, for $1,020,
and two lots later he is on the basketball
floor shooting baskets for $2,040.

To take home Popeye Heavy Hitter he will
swing his hammer for $3,000, and run
errands about town on his trike for $2,400.
He is also known as a fast roller skater at a
better price, $540. And there are times when
he will step out of his original box and enter-
tain by blowing bubbles for $1,320.

There are all kinds of things Popeye does to show his strength, such as using his Metal Tap-

anced on his head. For that show of strength he will step out of his box for $2,160.

Olive Oyl has called an end to the antics of Popeye and popped out of her star-decorated origi-

had developed suitable agricultural and
