Dear Comic Art Fan,

Comic industry legend Stan Lee turns 89 years-old this month! In lieu of gifts “The Man” has requested that donations be made to the Hero Initiative to benefit comic book creators that have fallen on hard times. “A gift to Hero is like a thank-you note to every comic book creator who ever brought you countless hours of fun, thrills, and unforgettable reading enjoyment,” said Stan, “It’s a great way to celebrate any birthday—especially my own!” Donations can be made via ShiftMyGift anytime from now up until Stan’s birthday, December 28, 2011! 

See you next week!

1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I am 50 years old, live in Mexico, and retired this year. I do some blogging and was the Technical Support Manager (Mainframes, OS/390 and Linux and iSeries computers) in the largest Telco in Mexico. I love collecting art, blogging and I want to take some piano lessons and eventually compose.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite? 

My favorite piece is difficult to select, but I think that the alternate cover of Skye Runner #2 by J. Scott Campbell and inked by Richard Friend, because Rich accepted to ink it and explained how he did it, step by step, and I included these steps in one of my gallery rooms, very nice!

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

I began my art collection in 1998 after I bought a couple of pieces from the now-defunct Wildstorm Fine Arts; what I remember is that one of the pieces was a Gen13 double page splash (from issue #12 p.4-5) and other piece now I forgot what was. Thanks to my friend George Tanner I began to display my art in CAF! Also I tried to locate other Mexican collectors but I couldn't find any others.

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

I have framed only some pieces, and the others are in Itoya portfolios; also, I make some jigsaw puzzles from some of my pieces.

5. What are your top five most wanted original pages or commissions?
 
1. The cover by Art Adams of Gen13 #1 of the Gen13 babies.
2. The cover and the rest of art of Gen13: A Christmas Caper pages by Tom McWeeney.
3. A commission by Humberto Ramos and Francisco Herrera.
4. The cover of Crisis on Infinite Earths #7 by George Perez.
5. A cover by Jack Kirby.
