Dear Comic Art Fan,

Comic artist Brent Anderson had several portfolios of artwork stolen from his car four years ago in San Diego. The majority were original pages from Astro City but also some Green Lantern and Rising Stars pages as well. This week Anderson announced that on his blog this week that a few pages of turned up and he's offering a reward for their safe return. Find further details and a full listing of the missing pages at the link...

See you next week!

1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I am a jet pilot in the United States Marine Corps stationed in Okinawa, Japan. I’m originally from Michigan and began collecting comics since the mid-90s and artwork since 2007. I read and enjoy all genres of comics, thus my comic art collection has a wide variety. However, I tend to gravitate toward pieces with villains and darker moments from storylines.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

My favorite piece has to be my Jim Starlin Thanos from Marvel Two-in-One Annual #2. I love the one page story it tells and the image of Thanos is perfect!

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

I’ve been collecting comic art since 2007 when I bought a splash page from Brubaker/Lark run on Daredevil and haven’t been able to stop since! I love owning pages and covers from storylines that really impacted me and influenced my love for this incredible hobby. I also appreciate buying directly from artists as a patronage for the amount of enjoyment they provide. Unlike individual issues of comics that stay in boxes and rarely see the light of day, I can share my love of comics with others by displaying them on the wall.

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

Since I move every couple of years, I don’t have the wall space to keep my collection on display all at once. I have a few frames that I rotate pieces out on a regular basis. The rest remain in acid free portfolios that I flip through to show others.

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

1. Brian Bolland Killing Joke or Judge Death page

2. From Hell page featuring Jack

3. John or Sal Buscema Avengers page featuring a great villain!

4. Bill Everett or Steve Ditko Dr. Strange from Strange Tales

5. Mike Zeck Kraven's Last Hunt page
