Dear Comic Art Fans Member,

Welcome to this week's edition of the CAF newsletter. This certainly is a great week for old school art on eBay! There are auctions for Charles Schulz of "Peanuts" fame, Hawkman pages from both Joe Kubert and Murphy Anderson, and even two pieces created by the master illustrator Frank Frazetta! So be sure to check out our Editor's Picks and take a look at some of these fantastic auctions!

See you next week!

1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I was born in Guyana, South America.  I  attended the University of Calgary and after graduation, I moved to Richmond, Virginia where I have lived the last 20 odd years. During my college years, my parents emigrated to the Bronx, NY and I spent my summers there.
 I am an avid fan of cricket and a supporter of the West Indies team which is currently one of the worst teams playing international cricket. I am also a fan of the NFL and support the Cowboys which does place me in some fun discussions at work since Richmond natives tend to align themselves with the Redskins.
I have been a collector of comics and Science Fiction books since I was a young boy and I owned my own comic shop for several years.

2. What is your favorite piece in your gallery and why?

My favorite piece is my Silver Surfer 4 cover recreation by John Buscema.  This was the cover to one of my favorite comic issues and  the image was  practically burned in my brain. It was also one of my first commissions and at the time the most I had spent on a commission.

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

I  first was exposed to comic art when I attended the Creation convention in New York in 1977.  Barry Windsor Smith was there with his Conan art and I was stuck by how beautiful the art was compared to the printed comic. And even more amazing, art was for sale. As a poor college student I could not afford any but I knew then that someday, I would be able to buy some. Several years later that I purchased my first page from a comic shop called Supersnipe in NY. Over the ensuing years, I bought a few pages and then in 1998 I discovered comic art on e-bay and I was completely taken over.

4. How do you store and/or showcase your collection at home?

I keep most of my comic art in portfolios and I also have a flat file cabinet. I have mostly paintings on my walls.

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

That is difficult to say as I concentrate on published art for my collection and the stuff that I would like are priced way beyond my means.

If money was no object, the top three things on my want list would be
1. Any page  by Steranko
2. An Action cover with Supergirl
3. A Legion Adventure Cover
