Dear Comic Art Fan,

Wow was New York Comic Con crowded this year or what? It's good to see an east coast show growing to the point that it rivals San Diego but with space at the Javits Center being so limited I don't know how much more it can expand. I did like the layout this better than previous shows; with artist alley on one side and all the vendor booths on the other it made it much easier to find the artists I was looking for. Hope everyone had a good time! 

See you next week!

1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I'm a 43 year old software developer for an American multinational technology and consulting firm. I've been reading and collecting comics since the 1970s. I started with the German translated (Williams) editions of the Silver Age Marvel comic books. For me this period has still the best storytelling and arcs (e.g. no cloned or revived persons). In the eighties I bought some original US issues; especially Frank Miller's Daredevil had a great impact on me and revived my interest for comics.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

One of my most recent addition is also my favorite piece, a page from Daredevil #167 by Frank Miller/Klaus Janson. Besides its sentimental value, it's an example of a wonderful art and storytelling for me.

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

I started collecting after reading a nice introduction to original comic art in the German comic book price guide 2009. The article was written by CAF member Tommy Kohlmaier. Thanks again, Tommy!

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

I store the pages only in Itoya Art Portfolios. My preference is to freeing the collection from the limitations of the physical exhibition space and to share it online for the entire world to see.

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

1. Gene Colan: Daredevil (next to David Mazzucchelli and Miller, one of the three greatest Daredevil artists)

2. Avengers by John Buscema

3. Spider-Man by John Romita Sr. (for me the #1 Spider-Man artist)

4. Batman: Year One by David Mazzucchelli (the definitive Batman story)

5. Green Arrow by Mike Grell (a page with Shado)
