Dear Comic Art Fan,

This weekend Comic Fusion in Flemington, NJ hosts Superhero Weekend which includes many activities for the whole family alongside signings with artists such as Jamal Igle, Jim Calafiore, Charles Paul Wilson III, and more. They are also hosting an art auction, the proceeds of which will benefit a local domestic violence shelter. Silent bidding is available at the link, along with more details and preview images of the contributed pieces from the likes of George Perez, Herb Trimpe, Mike Choi, Jim Cheung, Eric Powell, and many more!

See you next week!

1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

My name is Sebastien, I am French, and about one year away from midlife crisis. I used to be a researcher in the field of quantum physics, but I left the university last year to focus on other research interests. Nowadays, I spend my time between India (where I work as a volunteer in a reforestation project), France (where I experiment different techniques of healing and rejuvenation), and Sweden (where my 10 year-old son lives).

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

That would have to be the Brian Bolland cover to Animal Man #25. I love how Brian brings the infinite monkey theorem to life in a way that ventures through the fourth wall. The piece has everything I like in comic art: thought-provoking piece with a story to tell, clarity of composition and flawless execution.

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

It all started at a 1998 comic convention in Paris. There was an art dealer there with maybe 30 pages of Hellboy: Wake the Devil by Mike Mignola. I had about $1,000 in my account (one month’s salary for a typical PhD student in France). I bought three pages (one for me, two for friends). We ate little for the rest of the month but the walls of our rooms were proud and happy.

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

Since I do not have a fixed home at the moment, my artwork is in the hands of a good friend (who is not a comic art collector).

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

I guess it depends whether you can afford what you want or not. I am afraid that most of my wants are currently out of reach (and I don't even mention covers from the 70s here). Anyway, here is a list of pages I would not mind landing:

    1. Watchmen by Dave Gibbons
    2. Born Again by David Mazzucchelli
    3. Silver Surfer by John Buscema
    4. Uncanny X-Men or Fantastic Four by John Byrne
    5. Daredevil by Frank Miller
    6. Captain Marvel or Warlock by Jim Starlin

I probably forgot that Kirby guy too. Did you say five?
