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!

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.

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.
