Original Art Aficionado - Weekly Articles1762

Collector OA_Aficionado private msg quote post Address this user
Hi all, wanted to let everyone know I write a weekly column on original comic art (OA) collecting here:

http://comicbookinvest.com/category/original-art-aficionado/

This column is intended to serve as an informative portal to OA collecting, bringing in new collectors and energizing existing ones. My articles cover a wide variety of OA-related topics, including a guide to OA collecting if you're looking to get started.

Please drop by to comment, critique or congratulate! I’m always on the lookout for topics to cover and collectors to feature, so feel free to contact me if you’d like to contribute.

Thanks for your time and support!

AndyRexia - It's discussed in detail here. Bottom line: stay away from them!

I own one of the cheaper pages you posted in the Mark Bagley column. I was surprised and pleased to see it there.

Hi Towmater, glad you enjoy my articles and thanks for your support

I hope you don't mind me quoting your words here, as they perfectly express my thoughts on the matter!

From Towmater:
"The Mark Bagley column was great because you showcased work at different price ranges. It showed that you can be a collector at different budget levels and still obtain works that represent the artist and their work throughout their career. George Perez is a great example of a "master" that has pages/covers on the market that are out of most budgets; while at the same time, one can find pages and covers that are very affordable, i.e., his work on Malibu Comics. The Malibu Comic work are great examples of the detailed style work that he is known for at entry level prices."

"You don't have to own the "big game" piece to bring home an example of an artist work that speaks to the person purchasing it and is an example of his or her work from their prime, or from a period right after they left a major run on a major title."
