Dear Comic Art Fan,

We've had a list of Most Watched auctions from ebay posted on CAF for a while, but it really never worked well, and always showed too many things it shouldn't, like portfolios and commission requests. So we've put together something that works much better, and only features results from those auctions that import into our system, so you'll always get the best result list. We've also added in additional filters to order your results by Price, Number of Bids, and time ending - and also only include the results you want, like Cover, Splash Pages, etc.

Have a look at the link!

See you next week!

Bill Cox
CAF Editor-in-Chief

1. Please tell us a little about yourself. 

I have been a lifelong comic book reader and collector. Started reading and collecting comic books in the early 80s and never stopped since then. In my hometown, Manaus (Brasil), it was really hard to find comic books at the time. So the ones I did manage to acquire I treasured very much. When I moved to the US in the 90s, comic books were already an intrinsic part of my life.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

This is a hard question to answer. I love all of my pieces. Basically they are all favorites. But I'll pick one - the first page I bought for my collection, Amazing Spider-Man #328 page 20.

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

I have followed the comic art market since 1999 but only bought my first art page in the 2000s. My interest for the hobby was triggered by nostalgia, obviously. Once I realized art pages connected so well with my comic book collection, a new hobby began.

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

The collection is displayed all over the house. My thinking is that art is made to be displayed. And what better way to display art than hanging it on the walls.

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

Web of Spider-Man #118 and #119 covers
Spider-Man #53 cover
Amazing Spider-Man covers with Scarlet Spider (Ben Reilly)
Early Spider-Man 2099 covers
Death of Superman covers
