Dear Comic Art Fan,

Fourteen years ago my wife Maureen, my good friend Chris Haggard, and I unveiled 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!
