1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

My name is Antonio, I'm 28 years old, and I'm from Spain, and I always loved comic books. I work as a solicitor at a small sea town.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

I think that, despite Preacher pages are my main collecting focus, my favorite piece must be the one drawn by Mark Bagley from Venom: Lethal Protector, featuring Spidey and Venom in a cool action panel. Venom was my favorite Spider-Man villain and one of my favorite Marvel Comics character. He was the first character that I followed when I was a kid and I never ever thought that I could own a page from the first issue of his first run.

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

I've been collecting comic art since the final months of 2011 and I started collecting as soon as I knew that I could do it. I mean that when a friend of mine who owns a comic shop told me that you could get an original comic book page, the first thing that I thought was: "Even a Preacher page?" In my opinion, Preacher is one of the best stories that I've ever watched or read, and when I knew that I could own a piece of this story I was really excited.

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

I don't like to display too much art, and when I do it, I like to play with a story. I use to display together a few pieces that together could tell a story. The rest of the pieces (the most part of them) are kept into an IKEA archive... well, it's really sold as a shoe cabinet, but 17''x11'' pages fit perfectly.

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

They are, surely, five Preacher pages.
