I read it for the articles

The latest issue of Playboy (the one with the hideous picture of Denise Richards on the cover) has a 9-page article about collecting original comic book artwork.

The article rambles and gets off track quite a bit, but it's worth reading. I enjoyed a particular point it made about collecting art:
Comic books, even rare ones, exist in multiple copies. But there's only one of each page or original artwork. If comic books are like cocaine, artwork is like crack.

Hopefully, the dozen or so pieces I've got hanging in my study don't constitute an addiction on my part.
