The Felix Comic Art Podcast is the show dedicated to the world of original art and original art collecting. Hosted by Felix Lu, each episode will feature a special guest as they chat about the hobby and talk to artists, writers, collectors and more. For anyone who has an interest in comic art, this is the podcast for you.
The Felix Comic Art Podcast is back to our monthly schedule for May 2019! And it's a big month for our hobby as Frank Frazetta's "Egyptian Queen" is up for auction at Heritage, and is expected to set new records for comic/fantasy art. So the time is right to welcome Frank Frazetta's former art rep, Dr. Stephen Ferzoco, to the show! Steve and I talk about "Egyptian Queen" (including Steve's prediction for the hammer price), Frazetta's market, and his legacy. And more. A lot more. Frazetta fans, especially, enjoy!

The first episode of 2019 for The Felix Comic Art Podcast has arrived! Our guest this month is Chuck Costas. Chuck is a long-time collector who's known in the hobby as "the Mike Zeck guy". Listen and find out why! Listen as well to hear about Chuck's early start in collecting original art, his efforts throughout the years in bringing fans and collectors together (culminating in his new role as organizer of the L.A. Ultimate Comic Art and Collectibles show), and perhaps most impressively, reuniting all five of Zeck's iconic PUNISHER Limited Series covers in his collection! And when you're done, check out his Show and Tell video on our YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/jys5z2pl0Es Maybe not just the Mike Zeck guy after all! Our website is felixcomicart.com.

This episode of the Felix Comic Art Podcast was originally set to be an exclusive bonus to our loyal listeners who have left reviews for us on iTunes. I've decided that, in the spirit of the holidays, and as thanks to EVERYONE for a record year for Felix Comic Art, to make this episode available to all. Special thanks to Gene Park for his long-awaited return appearance, hope you enjoy the chat!
Welcome to The Felix Comic Art Podcast, where we always keep it real! Even when we discuss fake art...which brings us to... Those who follow us on social media saw that I recently had a homework assignment for podcast listeners: To watch the documentary ART AND CRAFT (now streaming on Amazon Prime). It's about the most notorious art forger of the last 30 years, Mark Landis. The documentary shows Mark duping museums and institutions all over the US with his forged fine art. What the documentary doesn't address is how Mark got his start over 30 years ago: By forging original comic art. In this episode, we get to talk to Mark directly about his comic art forgeries, and what resulted in the biggest fake art scandal in the history of the original comic art hobby. Part two features former CFA-APA editor Benno Rothschild to share the other side of the story: The collectors who were duped in the scam. Benno also provides the inside scoop of what went down, as well as shares his thoughts on how we can avoid something similar again. We close the show with a quick segment on my buddy Yams, who puts these shows together, and has become quite popular in his own right amongst our artists and guests. You'll hear more from Yams down the line. Our website is www.felixcomicart.com. Sign up for the mailing list to stay on top of all announcements, new art, and exclusives!

The Felix Comic Art Podcast is back! Thanks to all who wrote in during our hiatus. We know you missed the show, and we missed doing it, too. Although we're only planning to resume a semi-regular schedule going forward, know that we'll get these out as often as we can. Thanks again to everyone for their encouragement. My guest for our return show is Todd Hignite. Todd is Vice-President of Heritage Auctions, as well as an art rep for such important comics creators as Daniel Clowes, Jaime Hernandez, and Adrian Tomine. I've been looking forward to talking to Todd for a long time and he doesn't disappoint. We cover his career, the art market, Todd McFarlane-era collectors, as well as the many treasures that have been offered by Heritage, including the latest, Bernie Krigstein's classic EC story, "Master Race". We pack a lot into this hour, hope you enjoy! Our website is felixcomicart.com. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Support the show by leaving a rating and review on iTunes. We'll have a bonus episode out very soon just for iTunes reviewers with the inimitable Gene Park. We're glad to be back, thanks for listening!
The February episode of The Felix Comic Art Podcast is here! It's a two-parter this month, with part one featuring Graphitti Designs founder/owner Bob Chapman! We cover the history of Graphitti, but focus mostly on original art (of course!) with special attention paid to their Gallery Edition line of books (similar to IDW's Artist's Editions). Hear the inside scoop on how these amazing volumes happen! Also, what about a Gallery Edition for David Mazzucchelli's BATMAN: YEAR ONE? Or the most influential manga of all time? Bob reveals all! Thanks Bob! Thanks to Bob as well for his contribution to our Original Art Show & Tell series on YouTube!: https://www.youtube.com/FelixComicArt Part two is a tribute to the late, great Seth Fisher. Seth was a standout talent, on his way to becoming a superstar comics artist, when he left us far too soon. Joining me for this tribute are his brother Asa Wentzel-Fisher, artist Nick Pitarra, and artist (and Seth's best friend) Langdon Foss. Thanks to all three gents for sharing their insights about Seth and his art. Which leads me to this announcement: Felix Comic Art is honored to assist the family of Seth Fisher in the sale of his original art. Seth's originals have never been easily accessible before; now his family has decided they are ready to share it with his fans. Most importantly, ALL proceeds from the sale of this art will be for the benefit of Seth's wife and son. Please sign up for the mailing list at www.felixcomicart to find out when this special art becomes available. Thanks for your support and enjoy the show!
The Felix Comic Art Podcast is back! With a brand-new 2018 edition of our C2E2 roundtable! Joining us again are returning Chicagoans, Ron Sonenthal and Chris Killackey. Chris Caira was unable to join us, and we wish him the best. In his place is newcomer Corey Harrison. Last year's roundtable was one of our most downloaded episodes ever. We tackle another wide range of topics in the original comic art hobby this time around, too, so hope you get a kick out of this one, too! And with this episode, I am announcing that the show will go on hiatus for now. We still have some great chats lined up, and we plan on getting to them down the line, but real life comes first. Felix Comic Art will continue to bring you the best in modern comic art, though, so please do continue to visit us there. Thanks to all who have followed the show these past three years. We'll be back! Until then, happy collecting everyone!
Happy Holidays from Felix Comic Art! Which means it’s time for our December episode! It’s a two-parter this month, with Part 1 being a roundtable from Rose City Comic Con 2017. Joining me is recurring guest Andy Robbins, along with returning guests, artists Nick Pitarra and Daniel Warren Johnson. We recap topics from previous episodes, as well as discuss current events in the hobby. And we also reveal the story behind the stolen David Mazzucchelli BORN AGAIN art from the David Mandel episode last year. You don’t want to miss this! This one is, as Nick Pitarra calls it, a spicy episode. Part 2, then, features a visit with David Mandel, and his reaction to the resolution of his BORN AGAIN art saga. We also talk about a variety of other topics, including his thoughts on the explosive George Perez market, sketchbook commissions, and more. Please note, Part 2 is an exclusive for our VIP listeners who have been kind enough to leave a review for us on iTunes. If you’ve done so already, check your e-mail for the invite link.
