1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I'm 53, born, raised and living in NYC. Started reading and collecting comics around 1970. Earliest interests were Mad Magazine, Bernie Wrightson, Barry Windsor-Smith, and the superhero titles featuring Superman and Iron Man. I also enjoyed Vaughn Bode. I have an art gallery in Brooklyn: www.scottedergallery.com, which has been open around nine years and is exclusively dedicated to comic art authors.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

Top five would be the Dave McKean Sandman covers (#1 & #2), Harvey Kurtzman's Two Fisted Tales cover, Rick Griffin's "Omo Bob Rides Again" from Zap #5, Chris Ware's New Yorker cover, and the Simon Bisley's Doom Patrol #44 cover.

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

I started collecting comic book art about twenty years ago. I was raised around art and went to the city's museums constantly with my father when I was a kid. After I began re-collecting comic books in my early 20s, I started dealing comics full time by my mid-20s, and learned about comic art while attending comic book conventions. Once I bought my first page of art, I was hooked, and that was that. I started collecting and dealing and it's been that way since.

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

I have pieces hanging through out my apartment "Salon" style, rather tightly grouped. Almost all of the wall space is covered with art.

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

  1. I'd love to pick up a Dick Sprang Batman
  2. A strong Victor Moscoso pinup or cover
  3. A Dan Clowes cover (I sold all of mine... wish I hadn't!)
  4. A good vintage Robert Crumb cover
  5. Any 1970s Jack Kirby covers or splashes
