1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

My name is Cory Gauthier, I have loved comics my entire life and have read them monthly since I was 12. Now 37, I own my own brick and mortar store, All Star Comics in Nederland, Texas.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

Currently the only piece I don't think I would ever sell is my Tony Harris Captain America painted commission. My favorite character, my favorite artist, beautiful. I don't believe I will ever not have it hanging in my home.

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

I started buying, selling, and trading comic art in 1990 when I first discovered it in the back of Comics Buyer's Guide. I would order pieces from Spencer Beck and a shop near Georgetown, Texas; I cannot remember the owner’s name. I soon started searching for art at comic conventions in Houston and remember being blown away at the Dallas Fantasy Fair where the same dealer from Georgetown would have stacks of five dollar pages. I have several hundred pieces in my hidden sold art gallery here on CAF, the only piece I regret selling was a Jerry Ordway Adventures of Superman cover. The buyer still has it in his gallery and I visit it occasionally. Currently I am in the process of uploading a collection I hope to sell that includes eight Frank Cho covers, three Simon Bisley paintings, and a dozen Red Sonja covers from her ongoing Dynamite series.

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

I go through phases where I buy pieces throughout the year at conventions, online, and here on CAF until I fill portfolios, then decide I don't need anything if I don't have it framed on the wall. It's been a continuous cycle over the last 20 years.

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

1. Jack Kirby Captain America splash

2. McFarlane Spider-Man splash

3. Adam Hughes cover

4. J. Scott Campbell Blackc Ct for 2012 San Diego Comic Con

5. Tony Harris Conan commission painting (on its way eventually)
