1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I'm a 48-year old IT trainer and writer living in Ontario, Canada with an amazing family. I'm a life long comic and comic art collector. These days, I tend to concentrate on Love and Rockets and Peter Bagge's work. On the Superhero side of things, I tend to prefer 60s and 70s stuff.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

This is a tough one but I'll go with my Love and Rockets #2 page since its the first L&R page I got.

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

I probably started around 1980 picking up a page here and there at conventions and while I got into it slowly, my collecting has picked up over the years. The thing I like most about about collecting comic art, other than the pure pride of ownership is the fact that you own a unique piece of history and that you hold in your hands, the work of some amazingly talented artists. I've sold or traded away so many great pages over the years, but I always hope to get one or two of them back again. There are many pages scattered around with my name on them.

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

Most of my pages are in portfolios. I have a few framed pieces and plan to frame many more soon.

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

Like others have said,  it's tough to narrow it to five, but I'll shoot for the moon.  A vintage Will Eisner Spirit page would be nice. The cover of X-Men #141 although I'd settle for almost any page in the Days of Future Past storyline. A Steve Ditko Spider-Man page from Annual #1, an early Jack Kirby Fantastic Four page, and a Neal Adams Green Lantern/Green Arrow page preferably with GA and GL in it. Never hurts to dream.
