Purkayastha , Rudra

My introduction to original comic art was through the movie ‘Unbreakable’. The character played by Samuel L Jackson in that movie owned a comic art gallery called ‘Limited Edition’. But this initial introduction to comic art did not lead me to becoming a collector. Instead, it lead to me writing comics in the British small press scene – see www.untoldvoyages.com. And although I’ve owned some pages of original art in the past, mainly from artists I’ve worked with, I did not become “collector” until recently. In the spring of 2016, Avatar Press did a Kickstater for the anthology comic Cinema Purgatorio by Alan Moore et al. I decided to back it and got a hardcover of the book signed by Alan Moore. And now that I had one hardcover book by Alan Moore, it was naturally imperative for me collect every Alan Moore book in existence. It seemed like a mammoth undertaking at the time, one that would surely take a lifetime. A year later, I had every (almost every) Alan Moore book, and nothing more to look forward to in life. And the only way I could fill that hole in my heart was with (1) drugs, (2) unconditional love or, (3) upgrading to original comic art. Like any sane person, I chose the latter option.
