Dear Comic Art Fan,

This past weekend in Paris, Sotheby's held an auction of comic art whiched garnered a total of €876,500 and included work by Charles Schulz, Will Eisner, Moebius, Hergé, George Herriman, Frank Miller, and more. The highest earning piece was an Asterix page by Albert Uderzo which sold for €319,500. Originally a gift from the artist to an editorial assistant, this was the first time this page was available on the open market. It notably features a panel which is an homge to Rembrandt's painting The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp. See the full catalog of art and their description's at the link...

See you next week!

1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

Hi, I have always been an avid comic reader and artwork fan. When the time came (and the pocket helped) I did the logical transition to art collector. That was almost twenty years ago and since then I have this disease running through my veins.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

Ugh, that is a very tough question but. I suppose I am very fond of the Thing piece I commissioned to Lee Weeks several years ago. It is a real masterpiece.

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

As I mentioned, it was 20 years ago. I suppose until then I limited myself to collect my own drawings and to drool every time I saw an original in an exhibition.

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

I have more pieces than walls to hang them on so I have several of them framed (although in removable frames so I can change them from time to time) and the rest of the collection is adequately stored in Portfolios. I really would love to have enough space to honor each of those beautiful pieces.

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

I would love a Barry Windsor-Smith Conan (pre-Raphaelite style) of course but I would also love to have an Atari Force commission for the master Jose Luis García-Lopez, a group portrait of the Star Wars classical heroes from Stuart Immonen, a page with Batman from Year One (Oh, David Mazzucchelli.), an Alex Ross piece and the list could go on and on and on.
