Dear Comic Art Fan,

Don't forget that this weekend is Free Comic Book Day, a holiday to celebrate all things comic. This is the perfect opportunity to introduce new readers, especially kids, to the medium so be sure to tell everyone you know. And there are several creator signings coast-to-coast, if you're hitting one near you don't forget to bring a sketchbook! Check out the official website for more details.

See you next week!

1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I am Filipino, married, and presently working as an Advertising artist. My passion is collecting original artworks and the like.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

My favorite art piece in my CAF gallery is Swamp Thing #22 by Nestor Redondo because it has zombies and I am greatly fascinated with these living dead creatures in movie films.

3. How long have you been collecting comic art and what prompted you to start?

I have been collecting comic art since I was a kid, that is, at the age of ten when I saw the newspaper strips containing the old dailies of Stan Drake's The Heart of Juliet Jones, Hal Foster's Prince Valiant, Milton Caniff's Steve Canyon, Rip Kirby, Flash Gordon, Secret Agent Corrigan, Dr. Kildare, Tarzan, and many others.

4. How do you display/store your collection at home?

I store my art collection at home in big clear book folders (A3, B2 sizes), in big carton boxes and some are displayed in big frames.

5. What are your top five most wanted original pages or commissions?

My top five most wanted original pages/commissions are as follows:

   1. Early Tony De Zuniga Jonah Hex pages
   2. Any of Nestor Redondo's Swamp Thing Splash pages
   3. Any of Alfredo Alcala-John Buscema early Conan pages
   4. Hal Foster's Prince Valiant ( if the price is affordable)
   5. Any of Stan Drake's old dailies/Sunday strips
