1. Please tell us a little about yourself.
I have been collecting comics more than 40 years and comic art for the last ten years. I was introduced by a fellow collector; before that I did not know much about the existence of comic art as a topic. When I got some of my very first original-pages (Floyd Gottfredsson and Carl Barks) I was totally amazed of the details and scale of the artwork. And I have been stuck ever since. On CAF I can easily set up my collection and have a lot of new "friends" with the same topic. Also I like the seriousness on CAF. It’s very easy to handle my galleries and I have meet many nice people.
2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?
My Floyd Gottfredsson’s Mickey Mouse Sunday page from February 1937 is one of my favorite pieces in my collection. There is so many details on it and also I like the gag very much. There is a lot of good full images of Mickey and also some very good ones of Goofy. But I have to mention Carl Barks too, he was in my opinion the best Disney cartoonist/writer ever!
3. How long have you been collecting comic art and what prompted you to start?
I have been collecting for ten years. A good friend asked if we should buy a Carl Barks page together. Later I bought his half of the page too so now I own the whole Barks page which is known to be one of the oldest Uncle Scrooge published pages that has survived.
4. How do you display/store your collection at home?
I have some in my home, hanging framed on the walls - and also I have a private little museum in my company, where me and other enthusiasts of the topic can enjoy it all.
5. What are your top five most wanted original pages or commissions?
I would really like page 2 from Carl Barks’ Uncle Scrooge #62 "Queen of The Wild Dog Pack," in that issue mentions my country Denmark three times!
A good page from Uncle Scrooge #60 "Phantom of Notre Duck"
A good page from Uncle Scrooge #63 "House of Haunts"
An early Hal Foster - Prince Valiant page from the late 1930s-1940s
Finally a good Tintin page/panel by Herge
