I have been slowly gathering a nice little collection of original comic art over the past few years. It started with a Chester Gould Dick Tracy daily strip and grew from there. I currently have a Jim Holdaway Modesty Blaise, both a Sunday and daily Mary Perkins On Stage by Leonard Starr, a Johnny Hazard daily by Frank Robbins, an incredibly beautiful Roy Crane Buzz Sawyer daily (with a large panel done almost entirely in Craftint, which, sadly, has caused the paper to brown to a dirty looking tan from the chemicals involved), and one of the best Al Williamson Secret Agent Corrigan strips I've ever seen.
In addition, I have a few comic book pages: a Darwyn Cooke page from DC: The New Frontier, a Tim Sale page from Superman: Kryptonite, a cover from Local by Ryan Wood (and a page from Wood's New York Four graphic novel), and an amazing Dick Tracy Harvey Comics cover, featuring Flattop Jr. and probably drawn by Joe Simon, and a Batman pastel color sketch on black paper by Matt Wagner.
I should scan them all, but they're framed and on my wall and I'm far too lazy to take everything down and out of the frames and schlep them into work to my big scanner. But here's my latest acquisition (which I was smart enough to scan pre-framing). Rick Geary has been one of my favorite cartoonists for over 30 years. I first discovered him in the pages of National Lampoon, and fell madly in love not only with his art style, but with his quirky choice of subject matter. These days, he's mining the rich mother lode of Twentieth Century Murders in his series of graphic novels published by NBM. Rick recently started doing some commission work (search his name on eBay), so I asked him to do the Marx Brothers for me. Lo and behold, this beautiful piece appeared at my door yesterday:
