Collector: Jeremy Evans

Location: St. Charles, MO

How and when did you start collecting?

I started collecting about 3 1/2 years ago after we finished our basement. I started my collection with 24×36 posters of old comic book covers. I then moved into the statue and figure collection after that.

What do you collect? Does your collection have a theme, such as Star Wars, Batman, etc.?

I wouldn’t say I have a theme or specific collecting preferences. Mainly I look for things that I liked from my childhood or that have sparked my interest since I started collecting.

What makes your collection unique?

I think the thing that makes my collection unique is that I have merged my love of superheroes, star wars, the st louis cardinals and blues into one massive exhibit. All my things are mixed together into one giant fan cave.

What are your favorite or the most prized pieces in your collection?

My most prized pieces are the Justice League Maquettes from the old Justice League cartoon series. The Thing with jumpsuit is at the top of the list as well because it’s one of the more rare pieces I have. My Sideshow Superman is still on its way but it will definitely be my favorite piece once it arrives.

What items are on your wish-list?

The Sideshow Green Lantern (John Stewart) coming in Aug. The Sideshow Wonder woman and Flashpoint Batman. Also the Metallic Captain America by Bowen.
