This month, I stay local and talk to fellow Bay Area resident, Erik Larsen. Erik is, of course, best known as the artist/creator of the long-running series SAVAGE DRAGON, as well as being one of the founding members of Image Comics. But he's also a dedicated original comic art collector. Hear his thoughts on collecting for aesthetics vs. nostalgia, the art of Todd McFarlane and Rob Liefeld, how he acquired his Holy Grail, and much more!

Joining me as co-host for the second half is fellow Kirby obsessive (and mutual friend), Glen Gold.

And our show-and-tell video returns this month on YouTube! Check out Erik's entry and subscribe to our channel for more original comic art videos!

Convention season is in full swing and this month, we're at the show of the year: San Diego Comic-Con! It's a chance to see friends from all over the world, so i get to sit down with someone from the other side of the country, Gene Park. Gene is a well-known name in the comic art hobby, perhaps most for his opinionated posts on the CGC message boards. As a professional investor, Gene often writes about the state of the market, both present and future. So this episode is very much centered around the financial side of the hobby. For those who dislike such talk, this is the one to skip! We'll see you next month!

We continue our roundtable discussions in the second half, where Gene and I are joined by a former guest who has now become a show regular, Andy Robbins!

Our last episode was one of our most popular yet, so for our eighth installment, we hit the road yet again, this time to Heroes Con in Charlotte, NC! My guest for the first hour is Benno Rothschild. Benno is the former editor of the CFA-APA (Comic and Fantasy Art, Amateur Press Association) and a 40+ year collector of original comic art. Benno asked to talk about enjoying the hobby without being a high-roller. So the unofficial theme of this episode is "collecting on a budget".
 
But no episode would be complete without some mention of Frank Miller's THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS (sorry!). Check out his historic DKR splash, along with other favorites, on his show-and-tell video on our YouTube channel:

Our second hour is a roundtable discussion with artist Nick Pitarra and collectors Shannon Slayton and Jimmy Lawrence where we talk commissions! We've all had a lot of experience getting them and share the good, the bad, and the ugly!

The Felix Comic Art Podcast goes on the road to Seattle for Emerald City Comic-Con to bring back a special double-sized episode! In the first half, I talk to longtime collector Andy Robbins where we discuss how we built our comic art collections, our philosophies and strategies, what we did right and what we did wrong. Learn the Andy Robbins Method...it will help you with your collecting.

Can't get enough? There's more! In the second half, we invite former guests, John Butler and Lambert Sheng, to join us for a roundtable discussion. We talk about finding new art at shows, why some dealers have done better than others, our love/hate relationship with Artist's Editions, Andy's terrible ideas for "improving" CAF, and more!
