Comic Art News: Heritage Auctions Presents: The Ethan Roberts Estate Collection

The Ethan Roberts Estate Collection
It was our privilege to have known and dealt with Ethan Roberts for the better part of forty years. Ethan was a passionate, intelligent, generous, staunch and outspoken advocate of the medium. He appreciated every member of the profession and their role in it. Professorial by nature, Ethan was never afraid to "get involved". Whether it be gatherings, conventions, exhibits or any method of communication, Ethan was an eager participant.  

As an organizer, of the very first comic convention to his recent attendance at the fledgling Secaucus comic art convention, his goal of collecting outstanding examples from every major artist or influence to have worked in the medium never diminished. 

More importantly, he was just as devoted to his friends and family. His untimely passing has left a gaping void in the hobby to say nothing of those of us who knew him.

We are honored to be of service to the Roberts' family. Just prior to embarking on the forward of this catalog we received Wally Harrington's touching tribute. We immediately, asked Wally if he would allow us to use it. His acceptance is much appreciated. Please join us in celebrating the passion of Ethan Roberts. The Ethan Roberts Estate Collection
