Son of Lichtenstein

The Trickster, shown above, was painted by Mel Ramos in 1962. It is being auctioned off next week and is expected to fetch between $500,000 and $700,000.

The cover to The Flash #113, shown below and featuring the first appearance of the Trickster, was drawn by Carmine Infantino and Joe Giella in 1960 and the amount paid to them for it probably totaled under $100.

Remember back here when I reported that Roy Lichtenstein is the most hated artist ever? Well, maybe Mel Ramos is the second-most hated artist ever. Or should be.
