Born in Trenton, New Jersey in 1955, Peter Koch's young life wasn't quite
the Southern California experience of his publishing partners- he has never set
foot on a surfboard- but he did try to have some fun here and there. Believing
that most comics of the day were an insult to his 7 and 8 year old intelligence,
that all changed when, on a day that it was raining too hard to get to the movie
theater for the matinee, he took his quarter and bought X-MEN 4 and AVENGERS 4,
both with art by Jack Kirby.
Within days he concluded that he had to have
everything Kirby had ever drawn. It's been downhill ever since. His first original
art acquisitions were 3 pages of THUNDER AGENTS art by Wally Wood. More recently
he got almost the same thrill when, after 40 years of searching, he turned up
some originals by Big Daddy Roth. He's seen a lot of art, he knows what it looks
like and he knows how to make it look right in print.
