If I was a Rich man...

Now I have that song running through my mind. Apologies to everyone else that is humming it now too.

I am sure that we have all dreamed about what it would be like to be rich. What we would buy first, what we would do for our family and stuff like that. I hope that money would not change me and that I could still lead a simple life. I would like to think that I would donate a lot of money and that I would take care of my extended family as well as those that live around me. I don't spend a lot of money as it is now so I think I am safe to assume that I wouldn't spend so much if I did have a lot. Sure, I might pick up a few more comics but that would be about it.

But then I got thinking... ...I definitely know what I would spend money on that I don't now. And yes, it has to do with comics.

I would purchase original comic book art and I would ask my favorite artists to draw something for me that I can frame and hang in my home. My home (my comic book den; I do have to have a place for all my geeky stuff!) would have a ton of comic art hanging on the walls.

Of course I would get another drawing from my favorite artist Alan Davis.

The ClanDestine

I would love to have something like this from Alex Ross hanging on my wall. Bonus points to whoever can tell what this painting is all about.

I would also try to track down some original art from Marvel's old Star Wars comic.

Something like this would be so awesome!

Now I am just getting envious surfing the internet finding cool pieces of art. Like this one of Alpha Flight (a Canadian team) from Hellboy creator Mike Mignola.

Okay, I'll stop. So if I ever get rich, this is the vanity thing I would spend my money on!


  1. Yep, now I've got that song stuck in my head...but that's OK because I love "Fiddler on the Roof." Next, I think you've got a great idea for how to spend your money. Next, your question about the one painting and what it is all about...that's about WATCHMEN, right?! And finally, I think it would be really cool if you had your favorite artists create artwork for you! Good plans!

  2. Very cool! I think black and white art, whether it is comic book characters/scenes or photography of nature/people, is awesome! I think I'd like to have a room with some of that kind of art (if I were a rich man that is!)

    PS - I'm stealing this blog post idea. Sweet!

  3. Jeremy: The Watchmen is in it. It is a painting of some of Alan Moore's projects. Watchmen, V for Vendetta, Captain Britain, Supreme, Swamp Thing, etc...

  4. Very cool Alan Moore print. :)
