Tonight Bill, Mike, Glen and Will, will be joined by an as yet unknown guest (Will G knows, but he's not telling) who will give us the details on a true original comic art tragedy from many years ago. We'll also be doing our usual Q&A with viewers in the stream, so we hope you tune in for another episode of Comic Art LIVE!
As fate would have it we've found out a few days ago that a Dealer we've spoken about in prior episodes is visiting with Mike Burkey tonight and they've agreed to chat with us on our live stream this evening! No names this time around again like our last mystery guest, but we promise it's going to be an interesting show!

Pat was also part of the group that graded and authenticated the first Sothebys comic and comic art auction in 1991 along with Jerry Weist, Ernie Gerber, John Venzyl, Gary Carter, and several others.
Comic Art Collector Paul Aguila has been collecting for 8 years, going through an accelerated learning curve when it’s comes to the hobby like many new collectors do. He can recall being scared to pull trigger on a $300 piece and now he's starting to look at much higher ticket items. In his short time as an original comic art collector he's had over 2,000 pieces in his possession. Tonight we'll learn how he got started collecting comic art, and because of his varied tastes in artists and time periods, what gets him to pull the trigger on a purchase.
Join Bill Cox, Mike Burkey, Glen Brunswick and Will Gabri-El this evening at 9PM EST while we chat with Collector and Comic Art Rep Dave Wilkins. Dave has been a fan of the green giant for many years and has run a blog since 2012 about all things HULK (https://thejadegiant.wordpress.com/). Dave took the plunge a little over a year ago to represent artist Joe Bennett and his Immortal Hulk original art sales at http://www.jadegiantcomicart.com , so he'll have a unique perspective on the original comic art scene. We'll also show off some of pretty incredible HULK covers (pun intended!) in the collection of one of our Panelists!
George Hagenauer has collected comics and comic art for more than 50 years, and owns more than 2,500 pieces of original comic art, much of it posted to his CAF Gallery (https://www.comicartfans.com/GalleryD...) which he started back in 2005. George has always been a comic fan and collector and in 1976 he was part of the team that started the Chicago Comicon until it was bought by Wizard World, and he is also a member of the CFA-APA (Comic and Fantasy Art Collectors Amateur Press Association).
This week you can expect our usual musings on the hobby along with our thoughts on last week's Heritage Auctions' Comic & Comic Art Signature Auction results. Spectacular results came in for works by artists such as Frank Frazetta, Lee Elias, Jack Kirby, Alex Raymond, John Buscema, John Romita Sr., Will Eisner and many others. When the auction came to an end, the total prize realized was as awesome as the assortment presented: $9,509,226, with almost $4.5 million of that coming from the sale of original comic art and illustrations!
