1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

My name is Brian Weeks and I live in the beautiful sunshine state of Florida. I am a big comic book and comic art collector. The best part of collecting the comics and comic art is the fact that my wife Tracy is a big supporter of my hobby and goes with me to places like Megacon. I am a fan of Ethan Van Sciver, John Romita Sr. and Jr., George Perez, and Ardian Syaf.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?  

My favorite piece is the commission of Batman done by Ethan Van Sciver. I have always wanted a Batman done by him, plus I got to watch him draw it from start to finish. The detail he puts in his work is amazing with rain and lighting it in the back ground.

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

I have been collecting for about two years. A friend of mine got me started when I saw a piece he purchased at Megacon. I thought collecting comics was great, but owning the one of kind piece of art that was used to make the comic was even better. I never realized that there was a whole other world of comics till I started collecting the art work.

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

My favorite pieces I take and get professionally framed; I have whole room with nothing but comic art, statues, comics, and figures. What is not framed is kept in a Presentation Book which keeps them flat and safe.

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

My top five most wanted pieces are:
1. Jim Lee - Batman from the Hush story line.
2. Todd McFarlane - Spider-Man Splash
3. Ethan Van Sciver - Superman/Batman #29 Cover
4. George Perez - Batman: Black and White Statue art
5. John Romita Sr. - Spider-Man Splash
