11Alive News – Atlanta Collector Sees Comic Art Soar in Value

7/7/17

Hartman Simons’ Benno Rothschild began collecting comic art at the age of 16, when he asked his dad for a piece as a birthday gift. “My dad was actually shocked by the price,” he explained. “It was $150. I said, ‘Dad, I’m not asking for a car!’ I just wanted a piece of art.”

“I enjoy the sequential nature of it,” said Rothschild, a partner with Hartman Simons. “It’s art that tells a story, which I think is pretty fun.”
