Dear Comic Art Fan,

New York Comic Con was packed this year! Reportedly over 150,000 people were in attendance over the four day show. Artist alley was a mob scene and equally packed (or maybe even more so) than the main floor itself. Hope everyone picked up some great new original art! Thanks to Mark Hay of Splash Page Comic Art and artists Paolo Rivera, Stefano Gaudiano, Marko Djurdjevic, and Goran Sudzuka for letting us share their booth space.

See you next week!

Premium Member of the Week :: Ken & Trevor Brennan

1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

My name is Ken and Trevor is my twin brother. We have been reading comics since the early 80s and became big fans of 2000AD at the end of the decade. As many fans of the comic know the insane genius Simon Bisley reigned supreme over British comics at the time and we both became avid followers of the artist and the other prominent UK artists of the time (Bolland, McMahon, Mckean etc,). When these greats moved on to American series we followed and our horizons expanded as we were introduced to a whole plethora of new talent.

Unfortunately, it never occured to us, until the mid-2000s to actually start collecting original comic art, by which stage all our favourites had become classics and were priced accordingly!

It was only around 2009, that we discovered this site but have spent countless hours browsing (enviously!) through other collectors galleries. It's amazing to see the original artwork for so many childhood faves and know that they meant as much to others as they did to us...

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

Most of the pieces we own are of great personal significance to us, particularly Simon Bisley's Slaine (my favourite comic), ABC Warriors, the Doom Patrol cover (perhaps Biz's magnum opus) and the cover to David Gibbon's Aids Awareness comic, which is now called Mortal Coil (1993). If I was to pick an absolute personal favourite, it would have to be that one, as it was one which Trevor made a study of in art college and was bought personally from the artist himself, who, thanks to this site, we consider a friend.

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

Although we had convention sketches ranging from the early 90s, it was only in 2009 and that we started seriously amassing orignal comic artwork.

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

As the artwork is divided between two abodes, we have plenty of wall space and at least 15-20 pieces are up and framed on our walls of our respective places.

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

My (Ken) favourite piece in all of CAF is Simon Bisley's cover to Doom Patrol #46. I am also toying around with the idea of getting Simon to re-imagine it as a commission for me.

I also would love an original Frankenstein plate by the King of Horror Bernie Wrightson, I can only imagine how incredible they would be to see in the flesh, never mind to own one!

I also would like a page of Arkham Asylum or Signal to Noise by Dave McKean, as we are huge fans of his work on those books.

As a fan of the Fantasy genre, one of Frazetta's oils would be a dream come true. I love his painting of Mina for the abandoned Dracula project which is on CAF; very tasteful by his own standards!

We are both huge admirers of the work of Bill Sienkiewicz and that is a notable gap in our collections; of his projects the two I would most want interior pages from are Big Numbers and Moby Dick.

I would also really like a Chris Halls/Cunnningham Judge Dredd cover/interior or Aliens cover, he didn't do a lot, but his meager output was brilliant.
