Dear Comic Art Fan,

Fourteen years ago my wife Maureen, my good friend Chris Haggard, and I unveiled ComicArtFans.com on February 1, 2003. It wasn't pretty back then, but it filled the need of many art collectors to share their passion for the hobby with others. We've changed a great deal over the years but our commitment to making CAF the go-to destination for original art collectors and sellers has never wavered. Our heartfelt thanks goes out to everyone who has been there with us on this journey!

Bill Cox
CAF Editor-in-Chief

1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I am a 45 year old Brazilian, born in Rio de Janeiro. I have loved Batman since childhood and collect everything featuring him for 28 years now. I have been a lawyer for about 20 years.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

World's Finest #228 page 23, I love this piece, not only because it was the first art I ever purchased, but I am a big fan of the artist Dick Dillin.

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

I got my first headshot sketch in 1991 from Eduardo Barreto. My focus is collect Batman headshot sketches and commissions. I got my first original art in 2005 and have been prioritizing on Brazilian artists’ art that have been doing an excellent job. What influenced me to start this collection was a friend that used to buy original arts on eBay and first introduced me to this fabulous universe.

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

Some of them are hung on my apartment walls and others I store in portfolio folders with top holders.
