Dear Comic Art Fan, 

The comics industry lost another giant this week with the passing of John Severin. His sixty year career began at EC Comics where he established his reputation as a great illustrator particularly in the war and western genres. Later he became the lead artist at Cracked Magazine for a run lasting 45 years. He kept working straight through to the end of his life with contributions to titles including The Punisher, Suicide Squad, BPRD, Conan, and more in the past decade alone. Read his full obituary at the link...
See you next week.

1. Please tell us a little about yourself.
 
I build and train Customer Service Call Centers on the East Coast for burglar, fire, and medical alarm-related issues. This year is my 16th in the industry. I'm married with two kids and live in the Poconos about five minutes from where the Frazetta Museum was located in East Stroudsburg.
 
2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite? 
The Kent Williams Blood splash in my featured art gallery rings very true to me these days as it was an acquisition following my daughter's birth.
  
3. How long have you been collecting comic art and what prompted you to start?
 
In 1994 I answered an ad by a friend of Phil Hester's (of Swamp Thing fame ) in a comic related (Comic Buyer's Guide) newspaper and thereafter began acquiring work based on my interests - initially pre-Vertigo artwork and eventually painted cover and interior art. 
 
4. How do you display/store your collection at home?
 
My wife has a built-in clock that alerts us when it's time to recirculate the artwork on the walls and draw from the archives in the basement to repopulate the images we have on display. She was a graphic designer for many years and is supremely qualified for the job. 
 
5. What are your top five most wanted original pages or commissions? 
 
In the last 17 years I've owned numerous Frank Frazetta works, but there are a few that have always eluded my grasp. Some day when I'm rich (we must always retain hope) I can attempt to approach the owners and begin the process of dislodging these masterpieces from their collections. There are also a couple of Jeffrey Jones paintings that have remained in private collections since their creation that I am absolutely chomping at the bit to acquire. So, Death Dealer preliminaries, Ghost Rider cover work, Mermaids, damsels, and airy wafting clouds to cover the walls.
