Especially "dude." And "balls." Those terms work in the tech industry.

Record price for a Russ Manning Magnus page?

I think this might be a record price for a GK Magnus interior page. $7501.20 with buyer's premium. Seems much higher than I would have thought it would go for. Issue 20.

For the moment I have the feeling that it is the best art that increases the most in value. Will be interesting to see if more "common" art follows. If so I need to look over my insurance.

Agree that it's always the keys that move the most. Only "common" art that moves up will be common art of key artists I think.
