I've done everything with comics, except drawing them.
Jacques is so busy with comic books that only the characters themselves are more involved. As a child, he read Donald Duck, Tintin and Spirou, but his interest was really piqued when the first comic book shop opened in Ghent. That was where Jacques became acquainted with more expensive comics, which he was desperate to collect. He has now been collecting comics and curios for more than 40 years. He has built up an international network by visiting a number of European conventions for his hobby.
He has also been involved in organising conventions, distributing weekly comics and working on various exhibitions and reference books for comics. As an auctioneer, Jacques has a keen eye for beautiful lots. The condition of the objects on offer is of the utmost importance for Jacques. This is what makes lots stand out from the crowd, especially for first editions and comic curios. And if there is doubt about a particular illustration or some other issue, a quick check of his own collection is often enough to provide the definitive answer.
Ends Friday from 20:00 CET onwards
