Tomine is the next original art I'll be buying. Hopefully he has more pages from the upcoming issue on comic art collective. That is where I picked up my Bagge and Fingerman pages from. You actually communicate witht the artist to arrange the conditions of sale, pretty cool stuff.
On American Splendour, I just picked up an anthology, needed something to read on the plane, The early works are much more interesting than the more recent stuff I have tried to read. I'll be giving it another shot.
One of my buddes from college, Rich Henn, is an up-and-coming comic book artist. You can check out his work at http://www.timespell.com . While I prefer graphic novels (not anime, I have to emphasize!), it's interesting seeing Rich's style evolve through the years. Zoomies looks to have a lot of potential; I haven't seen it yet, though. He's always been a great storyteller, and I wish I had that kind of talent.
