1. Please tell us a little about yourself.
Hi, I'm a collector based in the UK. I'm a long time reader of the British anthology comic 2000AD, which is of course the home of Judge Dredd. And Judge Dredd forms the bulk of my collection, though anything relating to 2000AD is always of interest.
2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?
Well, my current favourite piece is one of my latest acquisitions, which is a page from Part 6 of The Apocalypse War by maestro Carlos Ezquerra, which featured in Prog. 250 of 2000AD - over 30 years ago now! The Apocalypse War, alongside The Cursed Earth, and Day of Chaos are the holy trinity of Judge Dredd tales for me. I was looking for a killer page to round off my Apocalypse War collection, and this one fits the bill rather nicely.
3. How long have you been collecting comic art and what prompted you to start?
Not that long, really. Think I'm into my fifth or sixth year of collecting. So, a relative newcomer. Like a good few people with an interest in comics, I'd given some thought about original art, and had hoped to, somehow, track some pieces down. Unfortunately I’d never actually come across any at comic fairs, or elsewhere for that matter, so it was all a bit of a mystery to me. It wasn't until I signed up to a few online sites, that I actually came across folks that was either selling pieces, or was showing off their collections. And so, one thing lead to another...
4. How do you display/store your collection at home?
The bulk of my pieces are stored in folders, though I have recently begun to have a few pieces framed.
5. What are your top five most wanted original pages or commissions?
Though I've been collecting for a relatively short period of time, I consider myself fortunate to have acquired pieces from the bulk of my favourite artists and stories. So, quite a few of my boxes are now ticked, but saying that, I'm always on the lookout for any more pages from The Cursed Earth by Mick McMahon. So, if anybody has pieces they are willing to part with...
But, if money is no object, and availability is not a problem then:
1. A page from Judge Death Lives by Brian Bolland
2. A Concrete page by Paul Chadwick
3. The cover to 2000AD Prog 61 (Judge Dredd) by Mick McMahon
4. An early Rogue Trooper page by Dave Gibbons
5. A page from Black Cross by Chris Warner
