Totally agree and my hope is that being so public about my collection will help others feel comfortable to do the same. One day soon, these will all be in museums (or at least they should) but until then bringing such an important and exciting part of the art form to light feels necessary.

Thanks for sharing your collection with us. Seeing all the pieces next to each other really let us appreciate your good taste. There isn't one piece of OA that feels out of place.

Beautiful collection you've built up there, and in a relatively short amount of time. I wish you continued success in adding to an already impressive lineup of pieces!

It's not a trash can, it's a child's cloth toy basket.

Children?!?  With all that art on the floor?  That's a more frightening thought than anything we cooked up!

So glad you feel this way. I never understood those who have art just to privately “self worship.” 

I understand tactical reasons: make it disappear so it looks “fresh” when it comes to market. That’s a Wall Street heart.

I understand security concerns: still with great power and great collections comes great personal responsibility. Display but protect.

But I’ll never understand the selfish heart that won’t share beauty (perceived) with others.

You have given us a great gift Dinesh and plenty to laugh, drool dream and worry about!

This is exactly how I feel. I'm not sure the world is going to care about Cosmic Ghost Rider in 40 years, but if they do, museum is definitely near the top of my exit strategies list.

This would set you apart from most collectors.

The conversation of filling up our favorite museums with comic art has been batted around before with @delekkerste being the most vocal that many collectors talk museum/donations but few mean out of their own collection ;)

If I'm well off enough to buy something so much a luxury as comic art, I can only hope I'm well off enough by the time I pass that the sale of the art will be relatively insignificant to the well-being of any I leave behind. As long as my loved ones are cared for, I can't imagine anywhere better for the art to go then a museum. Again, this is all predicated on the assumption that museums of the future will care about comic art (I think they will) and more specifically, Cosmic Ghost Rider (a much more dubious proposition).

Altruistic sentiment and admired truly. However you’re speaking to a crowd that goes a year eating only Ramen so they can take down a Finch X-Men cover.

Not sure most folks ready to leave their property er art to the “care” of a museum for the benefit of mankind. Especially when they don’t keep their word sometimes to those that donate.
