1. Please tell us a little about yourself.
My name is Adam Jensen. About to turn 28 in the next few days! I live in Wichita Kansas, not exactly a hotbed of comic activity, but we take what we can get here. I work as a receptionist/file clerk for a local law firm. I was a musician for many years in my spare time, but for the last two years I have moved over to writing sequential art in my post-work hours.
2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?
My favorite at the moment would have to be the Batwoman, Issue 5, Page 20, by the unbelievable J.H. Williams III. When I saw his Batwoman surface in the Detective Comics line I knew I had to start saving my pennies so I could own a page of his one day. It is a true grail piece.
3. How long have you been collecting comic art and what prompted you to start?
I've been collecting seriously for about the past two years. My first real piece was a Hellboy sketch done by Mike Mignola that I happened upon on eBay. I probably wouldn't have purchased it knowing what I know now about forgeries, but I did and it started an obsession. I soon found that many artists sell their work on this site as well, and ever since then I have been collecting voraciously.
4. How do you display/store your collection at home?
I have my Batwoman professionally framed (JH Williams and Jock) and the rest are kept in Itoya portfolios. They are open to anyone who wants to have a careful flip through. They may not all be pieces with a lot of mass appeal, but they are all pieces that hold a special place for me.
5. What are your top five most wanted original pages or commissions?
It's always hard to quantify your deepest desires, but here goes.
1) Deadman and the Flying Graysons #1 cover by Cliff Chiang
2) Any Nightwing piece by Jock
3) A true Hellboy pin up by Mike Mignola
4) Deadman and the Flying Graysons #3 cover
