Default Anybody collect original comic artwork?

I always thought it would be cool to own original pieces of art from comics. But man they are expensive. Anybody collect these? If so, let's see what you got!

Original art for Walking Dead 27 with 1st App. of the Governor. It's the second panel in which he appears.

Cool page from Deadpool 52, bought it straight from the artist (Ale Garza). I just love all of the major characters being on one page: Deadpool, Wolverine, Kingpin, Psylocke, Nightcrawler, Fantomex, and of course, who could ever forget about Bob? I was planning on getting it elaborately framed and matted as the Walking Dead panel you see above, I've just been too lazy, I'll make that one of my projects for February.

Full page:

From an actual copy of the book in finished form:

This is a really nice piece!! Btw, that Adlard auto looks familiar lol.

Here are some of mine:

Original Sandman/Death page:


And framed:

Goon page (only 1/2 page shown, as I wanted to show you how "DIE" was hidden in the clouds):


One of my fav artists is James Jean, here are two original Fable Covers:



These Fable covers are actually quite huge, cannot tell from this image tho.
And well, there are a few collectors who have been trying to pry these out of my hands for awhile now.

WD Original cover for 63, and early chew cover.

Just curious to both of you guys, how are your artwork pieces fastened inside of the frame? Is there a special type of tape or fastener that won't harm the piece?

Mine was professionally framed. I'm pretty sure they use acid free archival tape.

Original Art appreciates at a much higher return level than comic books ever will. Excellent investments provided you get the right pieces.

Those are all incredible! I'll have to keep an eye out at SDCC to see if I can find anything affordable. Probably one of the coolest collections I saw was the original art from Alex Ross. Those pieces were selling between $4K and $7K. Amazing stuff though.
