The Felix Comic Art Podcast (Episode 41): Cristian Casares
What happens when you build a world-class collection in record time...and then have to dismantle it just as quickly? Our guest for this episode is Cristian Casares, who besides having experienced a lifetime's worth of collecting in a few short years, is also the fan behind the epic DARK KNIGHT RETURNS #1 recreation project.

The Felix Comic Art Podcast (Episode 40): The Craigslist Story
Surprise everyone, we’re back. I bet none of you were expecting another episode so soon. Well, this one’s not a regular episode. This one’s more of a sneak preview. To introduce a special edition of the show that we’re calling SECRET STORIES OF COMIC ART. SECRET STORIES OF COMIC ART is the unleashed. I’ve recruited some of the biggest names in the hobby to assist with this project. If you’ve enjoyed the stories we’ve shared on the Felix Comic Art Podcast, then our SECRET STORIES OF COMIC ART series will share the stories that we couldn’t discuss publicly before. Until now. A few samples of what you'll hear: - Did a well-known collector once deprive himself of water for 24 hours prior to a notorious dealer coming to his home, because he was afraid he'd get ripped off if he had to go to the bathroom during the meeting? - Did a publisher once try to extort Frank Frazetta for a painting, and if he didn't get it, he would publish some of Frank's secret pornographic art he'd gotten his hands on? - What happens when the son of billionaire tries to buy $250K worth of art from you at a show with a check...but you don't know he's the son of a billionaire? - How about the first (and last?) ever interview with the mysterious megacollector known as "The Vacuum"? - And a whole lot more! So why are so many willing to share these private collecting and hobby stories now? Because SECRET STORIES OF COMIC ART is my fundraiser to benefit the cancer charity organization, PALTOWN. I want to thank my friends for helping me with this, and for opening up like never before to provide the best content possible. The SECRET STORIES OF COMIC ART series will only be available for those who have donated to PALTOWN. If you've already donated, you will be given access to everything. Every single episode. We already have five full-length episodes in the can, and are working on more! If you haven't donated, yet, it's not too late. We are offering multiple tiers, so you can have access to as many episodes, or as few, as you like. Please write me for more details. Our goal is to raise as much as we can for PALTOWN, so know that your tax deductible donations, at any tier, are greatly appreciated. For now, this one’s available for all listeners…it's "The Craigslist Story". Thanks everyone, talk soon. Felix
The Felix Comic Art Podcast (Episode 39): My Family
Podcast fans, we've got good news and bad news. Good news is...new episode is up! Bad news...it's got nothing to do with comic art. But it's about something important to me. This one's about my family. And what we've been through the last few years. It will, at the very least, answer any questions you may have had about why we went off our regular schedule. But mostly, I hope it might help someone out there who finds themselves in a similar siuation. Or if anyone is dealing with cancer now, feel free to reach out to me. You are not alone! The organization Paltown was extremely critical to me during our family journey. And it's so crucial for other patients and caregivers now. If you're a fan of the show and appreciate what we do, then please consider making a donation that will assist so many: Please dedicate the donation to my wife ("In Memory of Dianna Lu") and notify me via e-mail (). We have a lot planned for the show, and it starts with this fundraiser for Paltown. Thanks everyone, talk soon. Felix
