Most of us are very familiar with comic books and comic characters. For those who take a deeper interest in comics, the characters may seem as real as people in their lives. And they know the personality of the character very well. They in fact become so familiar with the character that they can anticipate the things that the character says and they can even mimic some of the character’s comic expressions. In a sense the comic characters can seep into the lives of the character’s fans as much as another human being can do.
And yet amongst all these people who avidly follow the stories of their favorite comic characters, few are aware that they can own an original piece of comic art of their favorite character. And if they choose to acquire one they can come the closest possible to meeting the comic character in reality.
When one reads a comic book, even with devout interest one tends to skim over it. It is not the readers fault because the comic book is a format that was originally intended for light and quick reading. The expressions are easy to grasp and the text is worded in manner that is easy to read and understand. And yet if one were to pause and stare at the drawing for a while one would be able to appreciate it in much more detail. And this is just what one can do with the mass-produced version of the comic art.
If you were to acquire and study an original comic art you would be able to see much more detail of the drawing. For one the art is much larger than the art reproduced in the comic books you read. You will be able to see the huge talent of the comic artist and how those expressions that you love are brought about by the artist’s master strokes. If you choose to display this original artwork in your home it would become a conversation piece that would be admired by your friends.
The best part is, original comic art is quite accessible and not expensive.
