Dear Comic Art Fan,

We get feedback all the time about CAF but I thought I'd try something a little more formal and create a survey over on If you've got about 5 minutes to spare sometime before the end of this month we would appreciate it if you could fill out as much of the survey as you care to comment on. Thanks!

Click here for the survey!

See you next week!

1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I am a 37 year-old finance manager, working for financial firm in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. This year I got married to the greatest woman in the world who appreciates comics as well. How could I be any luckier?

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

Everyday a different one and for a different reason. I love the pieces by Follet and Loustal in my gallery, but if you ask me today it has to be the Daredevil double-page spread from #282 p24-25. The Silver Surfer bursting into Mephisto's lair, so powerful. I picked this up from Craig Rogers six or seven years ago. Thanks, Craig! I treasure it.

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

I have been collecting sketches since I started to going to local comic conventions in the mid 1980's, but I only figured out that you could buy published artwork by the time I was 26 or 27 when I saw a page from 'De Generaal' by Peter de Smet and a page from 'Virl' by Dick Matena for sale, for actually quite reasonable prices. So I purchased them! Shortly after that I picked up a Spectacular Spider-Man page by Sal Buscema and the Darkseid pin-up by John Byrne (Thank you, Eelco!) at a local comic convention, so things speeded up. Both are still favorites of mine and in my CAF gallery. And then the Internet hit in 1998 for me and the rest is history, as they say.

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

With a lot of difficulty. Most are in Itoya-type folders, a few are framed and displayed around the house, almost stacked like wood panelling. 

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

A different wish list everyday for a different reason, but I would love to own some of the European classics:

1. A page by Herge

2. A page by Franquin

3. A Cover or painting by Hans Kresse

4. A nice page by Willy Vandersteen (this one may actually be achievable)

5. A nice page by Bob de Moor from 'Cori le Moussaillon', one with semi-splash of a ship. (this one should also be possible)
