Dear Comic Art Fan,

Happy New Year! We hope this holiday season has been treating you well and you're excited for 2015. I'm already looking forward to some trips coming up to check out conventions and galleries to which I've never been, meeting artists, and picking up new art. What are you looking forward to in the new year?

See you next week!

1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I live with my beautiful wife and two kids. I'm a product of the 80s/90s so I grew up watching Transformers, the X-Men cartoon and Batman: The Animated Series. X-Men, Gen 13, WildC.A.T.S. were always favorite comics growing up.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

My favorite piece would have to be the cover of X-Men #178 by Salvador Larocca. Nothing like Wolverine doing what he does best.

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

I've been collecting since around 2001. Much like everyone else, I stumbled onto a page on Ebay and have loved collecting ever since.

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

I have a few pieces framed, but most are in Itoya plastic covers.

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

1: Marvel Transformers #5 - Shockwave has always been my favorite. I would sell everything I have to own that cover.

2: X-Treme X-Men #25 - It's in Jim Warden's gallery. I've always admirred Larroca's work.

3: IDW Transformers Infiltration #0 incentive cover by Ed McGuinness. Ed McGuinness and Shockwave are a great combo. I have no idea where this ended up.

4: A Transformers cover (either Marvel Gen 1 or from Dreamwave).

5: I'm going to cheat... An X-Men cover by Chris Bachalo, Adam Kubert, Jim Lee or Marc Silvestri. A Jim Lee WildC.A.T.S. cover. A J. Scott Campbell Gen 13 cover.
