|kenneth g - My wife and I felt the need to express our deep appreciation for the service we have received both in mail order and in person at conventions these past six years in doing business with you ! You have been very fair in pricing the art and even cutting your prices lower for the sale . I have tried to deal the OTHER DEALERS with really overblown prices for their art, but you and your staff have held your Integrity all these years and made collecting original art affordable to the working class . Both Diana and I thank you and your staff ! Looking forward to doing business with you many more years to come ! Kenneth & Diana G.|
Gene grew up in New York & graduated from George Washington High School (a one-of-a-kind public school majoring in gifted students in the visual arts). Gene also studied at the Art Students League of New York under renowned illustrator Frank Riley and the famous surrealistic, modern Japanese painter Kuniashi. During World War II, a two year ticket with Special Services in the Army Air Corps found Corporal Colan in the Philippines where his artwork brightened the pages of the Manila Times and won him numerous awards. Back in the States, Gene Colan's official career in comics began in 1944 at Fiction House drawing Wings Comics. Gene then settled down to the task of finding a permanent niche in the comic industry, showing work to both National (DC) and Timely (Marvel) Comics. Stan Lee at Timely Comics was impressed enough to hire Gene for around sixty odd dollars a week. Since that time, Gene has been associated with both companies from 1946 to the present day. In addition, Gene has also freelanced for numerous independent publishers over the years as well.
