Dear Comic Art Fan,



The Comic Art Marketplace & Auctions at CAF is Open for Business!

You've been asking us for a new venue to sell your original comic art on comicartfans.com for quite some time and we're happy to say that our Marketplace is finally open for business. For Sellers, we've tied the Marketplace directly into your CAF Gallery Admin so it is very easy to move an Item into the Marketplace at a fixed price or at auction. Buying and Bidding on art takes just a few seconds and for our Premium Members we're already working on a bid scheduler that will allow you to place bids on Items when you want, without having to be on the website. With our feedback system, the Marketplace will provide both Buyer and Seller a means of building trust and credibility within CAF as a reputable Collector, something we've long hoped to add to the site.

There are already several pieces of art to bid on or purchase, and as we add more Sellers to the mix the amount of original comic art in this Marketplace will continue to expand. If you'd like to become a Seller please Contact Us, or if you'd like to learn more about the CAF Marketplace Click Here. If you would like to see what's already listed in the CAF Marketplace then Click Here to get started! Comments and Suggestions are always welcome.

- Bill Cox

1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I have been collecting comic books since 1976 in Rhode Island. I used to be into Marvel but their business practices along with really bad stories and artists have made me give up the company as a whole. I normally like to get commissions done by my favorite artists but occassionally will buy in prints. I live in Texas and serve in the Air Force.


2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

I have three favorites. The first is the Batwoman Splash from 52; it was on Ebay and I was determined to win it. I had enjoyed the series and saw the potential in the character. Second is my Gary Frank Batman which was done as a special gift to me from Gary. If you want the story, feel free to contact me through my CAF page. The last is my George Perez Wildfire/Dawnstar commission. Perez was the artist who hooked me on comics so wen he opened up his list for commissions, I went all out.


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

I got my first convention sketch from Jim Lee at the 1990 Ed Greenberg show in New York. 


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

I have some pieces framed. The rest art are in portfolios.
 

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

1. Athrur Adams commission

2. An Adam Hughes copic marker commission

3. A Jim Lee drawing (I'll take what I can get)

4.A Marc Silvestri drawing

5. A Humberto Ramos Amazing Spider-Man cover or splash from his upcoming run on the book.
