    The Secret’s Out on Colorado’s Coolest Winter Town

    The original art for the first appearance of Wolverine, a ferocious fighting mutant with a penchant for beer and cigars, is to be sold at auction in Dallas.

    Heritage Auctions will offer the ink, graphite and blue pencil drawing Friday. It's expected to sell for more than $240,000.

    A majority of the after-tax proceeds will benefit the Hero Initiative, a nonprofit that strives to aid comic book creators in times of financial need.

    The artwork was drawn by Herb Trimpe 40 years ago for "The Incredible Hulk" No. 180. It was long thought lost until the person Trimpe gave it to in 1983 contacted them about selling it. That person was given the artwork by Trimpe when he visited the comic book artist.
