1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I retired in 2013 from my hospital working 23 years as a therapist with cancer patients. I now work full time with my original art website business at www.romitaman.com

I love the hobby and I always try to work deals with people wanting to buy and trade for art.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

My Amazing Spider-Man #39 splash page... John Romita's very FIRST Amazing Spider-Man splash. It's a great huge classic image of the Green Goblin throwing a newspaper with Spider-Man on it!

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

I started collecting comics when I was 11 years-old, I started collecting comic art in 1989 when I got out of the army. I thought at the time that a one of a kind comic art collectible would be more interesting and fun to own versus mass produced comic books... I was RIGHT!

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

I store my most valuable pieces in multiple safes, and I display usually color items so people who are not comic art collectors can also appreciate them.

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

I primarily seek ANY pages from Amazing Spider-Man #39-53! These are the LARGE ART sized issues from Amazing Spider-Man... and I love em all.

I'd like to own a Steve Ditko Amazing Spider-Man cover one day if one would surface.

I also collect incredible Hulk covers from the 60s and 70s.
