Dear Comic Art Fan,

Today is the first day of New York Comic Con! The East Coast's biggest convention now rivals the size of San Diego and still maintains a fantastic roster of comic creators in artist alley. CAF can be found at the Splash Page Comic Art booth (#2405) who will host signings with several artists including Goran Sudzuka, Stefano Gaudiano, Paolo Rivera, and Marko Djurdjevic! Signing times and commission details are available on the Splash Page website at the link!

And on Saturday October 11th starting at 7:15 PM, NYCC hosts its fourth annual charity auction! The proceeds for all art sold will go to benefit the St. Jude's Children Research Hospital. Contributors include Rafael Albuquerque, Mark Brooks, Greg Capullo, Cliff Chiang, Agnes Garbowska, Juanjo Guarnido, Sara Pichelli, Humberto Ramos, Amy Reeder, Stephane Roux, Walt Simonson, and many more! Click here for more details and see a preview of the donated art!

See you next week!

1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I'm a healthcare worker who spends all her vacation time on comic conventions in the quest for finding more art.  I have a very narrow focus in the subject that I collect (Loki, and to a lesser extent, Thor) , but so far I've been very lucky in finding exactly the pieces I have sought.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

Probably the first page I ever got from Esad Ribic. It's from Loki #4 (pg 18).  I just really like the layout of the page, and the bottom left panel of Loki.  The color is amazing.  The detail is amazing.  It's just an all-around great example of a page from that miniseries.

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

I've been collecting comic art since 2011.  I've collected other kinds of art for most of my life, so the jump to comic pages wasn't a hard one.  The first one I ever bought was a Sal Buscema page from a particular Thor comic I really enjoyed.  I focused on Loki fairly early in my collecting because he is my favorite character in Thor comics.

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

Some of my favorite pieces end up on the walls, and the rest are stored safely in portfolios.

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

A cover from Loki Vol. 1 by Esad Ribic (I can dream), the end splash from X-Men Annual #9 by Arthur Adams (dreaming harder), a John Buscema Thor page with Loki on most panels, a commission from Arthur Adams, and the cover of The Mighty Thor #147 (the most unrealistic dream of them all!)
