  1. My introduction to original comic art was through the movie ‘Unbreakable’. The character played by Samuel L Jackson in that movie owned a comic art gallery called ‘Limited Edition’. But this initial introduction to comic art did not lead me to becoming a collector. Instead, it lead to me writing comics in the British small press scene – see www.untoldvoyages.com. And although I’ve owned some pages of original art in the past, mainly from artists I’ve worked with, I did not become “collector” until recently. In the spring of 2016, Avatar Press did a Kickstater for the anthology comic Cinema Purgatorio by Alan Moore et al. I decided to back it and got a hardcover of the book signed by Alan Moore. And now that I had one hardcover book by Alan Moore, it was naturally imperative for me collect every Alan Moore book in existence. It seemed like a mammoth undertaking at the time, one that would surely take a lifetime. A year later, I had every (almost every) Alan Moore book, and nothing more to look forward to in life. And the only way I could fill that hole in my heart was with (1) drugs, (2) unconditional love or, (3) upgrading to original comic art. Like any sane person, I chose the latter option. This was the first page of original art from an Alan Moore book I acquired. It’s from Issue 25 of Saga of the Swamp Thing, which features the first cameo appearance of John Constantine. Admittedly, this page itself does not feature John Constantine. Nor Swamp Thing for that matter. But it does feature the creative output of the trio of Alan Moore, Stephen Bissette and John Totleben. But more importantly, it features a complete unit of storytelling. In a single page, Alan Moore and the artists tell the whole backstory of these two minor characters, whilst foreshadowing what is to come in the ensuing pages. That’s efficient storytelling at its finest. And the caption at the end of the page, is about as effective a page-turn transitional technique as I have seen. This is a page from Alan Moore’s (in my opinion, underappreciated) 90s Image work in WildCATs. The art is by Jason Johnson and Terry Austin. I would join the chorus of those who lament the loss of speech bubbles and captions on original art pages to digital technology. But what’s interesting about this page is that it works perfectly as a series of silent panels. Without the dialogue and captions, it turns into aspect-to-aspect transitions that set the mood as the eye of the wandering camera focuses on different aspects of the place and time. Just to demonstrate (perhaps unsuccessfully) that my interest in comic art does not stop alphabetically at A for Alan Moore, here is a page that I own from the 90s Marvel comic ‘What If Wolverine Led Alpha Flight’, with art is by Bryan Hitch. Bryan Hitch is one of those artists whose art I feel extremely schizophrenic about. What I mean by that is that there are times I feel he is a modern day Michelangelo who widened the scope and canvass of comic art and heralded the modern cinematic style storytelling in comics. And there are other times I feel he’s just a photo tracer. At the time of writing this, I feel the former. I’ve been reading up and lurking silently on the CGC boards for a few months now. I thought a good way for me get more involved with the comic art hobby is reach out to my fellow collectors and write this journal to document my comic art collecting journey. What’s ironic is that although I write and work with artists to create comics and exhibit at most of the comic cons in the UK, I don’t know many comic art collectors. In 1946, humans announced their presence to the galaxy by transmitting radio waves of the sound of tolling bell into space. So, this is me ringing the bell into web space to my fellow collectors. … Rudra My CAF gallery
