Dear Comic Art Fan,

Very sad news this past week with the passing of Jerry Robinson, Golden Age legend and creator of the Joker. In addition to his comic book work, Robinson also spent 32 years as an editorial cartoonist. A champion of creators rights, he was instrumental in assisting Neal Adams procure credit for Superman creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster during the 70s. Read his full obituary from the Los Angeles Times at the link...

See you next week.

1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I work for a local hospital here in Arizona. I am married with two kids, a five year old boy and six year old girl, who I am slowly teaching to appreciate artwork.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

My favorite piece currently in my gallery is my Simone Bianchi Thor splash page. At the time I was looking for a great Bianchi piece to own and finally narrowed it down to this piece, only to find that it was sold. Doubtful, I contacted the new owner just to introduce myself and let them know of my interest. To my surprise they were looking to acquire something pretty pricey and were willing to let the piece go. I jumped at the chance to own it, and here it is, displayed in our office room.

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

I have had my CAF gallery opened for a few years, but really only started collecting artwork about a year ago. I started my collecting hobby with toys. Over the years sold them all off, and moved to collecting first issues and first appearances in comic books. Eventually, sold those off to fund, my animation cel collection which I've been selling to fund my comic art collection. So my collecting has been evolving over the last six or seven years to what it is today.

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

I've got my favorite pieces framed up in our computer room, and the remainder cared for in Itoya portfolio binders. Hopefully, in other parts of the house, just have to convince my wife, which is always a work in progress.

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

I'm very actively searching for 1) A nice looking Batman page by Jim Lee/Scott Williams from the Hush storyline. 2) A Michael Turner cover or splash page from a very missed artist. 3) A Todd McFarlane early Spider-Man (or maybe Hulk) page. All 3, I know, are hard to come by, but hopefully someday or if anyone knows someone looking to sell.
