Dear Comic Art Fan,

We're back from New York Comic Con and it was mobbed with fans! Artist alley was packed with talented and I'm sure many of you attending have some new pieces to show off in your gallery this week. Saturday evening's art auction reportedly raised $48,530 for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Some of the highest bid contributions came from Mark Brooks, Walt Simonson, Adi Granov, Jay Anacleto, David Petersen, and Kim Jung Gi. More details are on Simonson's Facebook page...

See you next week!

1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

Hi everybody! I'm Italian and live near Milan in the countryside. I work in the synthetic rubber market and am responsible for sales from Italy eastward until Russia and Kazakhstan so I travel a lot.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

That’s an easy question. Not because I don't have many nice pieces, but the one to which I'm most attached is the Chris Bachalo and Mark Buckingham Generation X (almost) splash that I call “The House of Mystery.” I got it in Modena in 1996 from Chris while he was visiting my country. It represents the love that some artists pour in their pieces and it is that love that lead me to be a collector.

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

I really got into collecting Original Art, in an active and intense way, on 2011 when I joined CAF. Another CAF cool collector, Ivan Rauseo, helped me out to get into this world and a good friend, Gary Sella, shocked me with his impressive CAF collection. I think I'll be stuck in this world for just another millennia, more or less!

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

Most of my collection is safely stored in various size Itoya portfolios. My lady is not even slightly crazy like me about original art and I like to handle easily the pieces to show to friends: the portfolios solution is the best I have found and lets me really appreciate and “touch” the art.

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

This is really a tough question as I love so many artists that it will be a hard task, but let me try…

1) A John Byrne page from his legendary run on Uncanny X-Man with Chris Claremont

2) Almost any page from Avengers Annual #10 by Michael Golden and once again Claremont

3) A huge Elektra commission from Bill Sienkiewicz

4) A good page from John Romita Sr.'s early run on Amazing Spider-Man 

5) Any page from Weapon X by Barry Windsor-Smith.
