Dear Comic Art Fan,

Well, Comic-Con is upon us again and if you're reading this then you probably didn't get to go either. Just because it's the biggest pop culture event in the world with more comic artists and movie stars than you could ever hope to meet doesn't mean it's that cool. I mean, I certainly haven't been crying myself to sleep every night this week for not going...

See you next week...

1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I'm 52 and work as an Equipment Engineer in the semiconductor industry where I repair and maintain photolithography equipment. I started reading Superman and Batman comics as soon as I could understand them, but later drifted towards Marvel Comics. I fell in love with John Romita's run on the Amazing Spider-Man and knew then, that if original art existed, this is what I wanted to collect.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

Tough choice, but if I had to pick just one, it would be the Amazing Spider-Man #90 cover by Gil Kane and John Romita featuring the death of Capt. Stacy from 1970. Important issue to me growing up.

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

I've been collecting original art for just over 20 years now. I moved to Puyallup, Washington in 1989 and happened to stroll into The Spider's Web, a local comic shop run by Todd McFarlane's brother-in-law, Kim. Kim introduced me to Todd, from whom I purchased my first original art, three pages from various Amazing Spider-Man books he had worked on.

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

I have a lot of wall art, so I only have a few pieces of original art displayed. The rest are stored in archival boxes.

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

The pinnacle of this hobby for me would be a Frazetta pen and ink illo, preferably something published. After that, a Ditko Amazing Spider-Man page, a Kirby/Everett Thor cover or splash, then most anything from Dave Stevens or Mark Schultz. I've moved more towards illustration art of late.
