#1 – Buying my first piece of Alex Ross original art
I happen to LOVE Alex Ross art; ever since I saw his work on Marvels in 1994. His work on Kingdom Come in 1996 cemented his position as one of my favorite artists of all time. I have several lithographs of his work in my comics room at home right now. But no originals. Not before SDCC 2014.
Slap an Alex Ross cover on a comic and I’ll buy it (well, not if it’s a 1:75 chase cover, but I’ll buy it if it’s a regular priced comic!) I also LOVE Doc Savage, as people who have noticed my Collecting Doc Savage Blog will know. Add Alex Ross & Doc Savage together? Wow! I’m very happy! Now I need to get this framed & onto the wall!
That’s it for this year! What a FABULOUS time of year. Now to look forward to next year’s convention from Weds July 8th (Preview night) through Sunday July 12th!
