1. Please tell us a little about yourself. 

I’m 34 years old and am a sales manager for a health services company in Dallas, TX. I grew up in northern Arizona, went to college in the SF Bay Area, and traveled around a little before settling in Phoenix, AZ for nine years, just moving to Dallas a year ago. Outside of comics and comic art I enjoy watching sports (college football is my fave right now), traveling around the States to visit family and friends, and running through good shows on Netflix I’ve missed. My girlfriend enjoys some of this stuff but not all!

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

Tough question. I love what I’ve picked up over the years, but I’d have to say, right now, it would be the Spidey splash from Superior Spider-Man #1 by Ryan Stegman. I’ve loved the guy’s work on the Spider-Man universe and think he’ll go down as one of the best to work on those characters. So that, and the fact that this is the first big reveal of the new Spider-Man (Doc Ock!) in the first issue of the series replacing Amazing Spider-Man.

Like I said, a lot of these pieces are near and dear, so you might get a different answer if you asked next week!

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

I’ve collected comics off and on since I was a kid but started getting into the original art about six years ago. This is the time when I started attending conventions more often and just got into it by talking with artists, flipping through portfolios, etc. A friend I met around this time had been collecting art for years so I also started getting into it more through talking with him. Started out more with sketches, then commissions, then on to more published pieces. Spider-Man is my favorite character, so when I saw these great published pieces I could actually own I got hooked. Having a little more means these days than in years past also helps.

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

I’ve just started framing some pieces and will continue. I’m framing some splashes/covers along with the signed published pieces, framing a couple of commissions – we’ll see. No big rush. Most of it sits in portfolios that I routinely flip through but I will get more of it up on the wall.

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

1) Like many others, a Todd McFarlane page with a nice Spidey shot. More particularly, a page from the Sub City arc (Spider-Man #13 and #14) featuring Spidey (black costume!) and Morbius.
 
2) A Walt Simonson splashy page from either Thor or X-Factor. Specific issues that stand out to me would be Thor #379 and #380 (Midgard Serpent battle) and X-Factor #38 and #39 (Inferno).
 
3) Cover or splash page from Andy Kubert’s Heroes Return run on Captain America
 
4)  Daredevil: The Man Without Fear #4 pg 15 by John Romita, Jr.  Great splash of Matt Murdock standing on a rooftop in the rain.  Another nice page from the storyline would work, too.
 
5) Jim Lee X-Men page from the X-tinction Agenda storyline featuring Wolverine and Psylocke.
