This is a short interview I recently conducted with Daniel Arangio, a collector from Argentina who has been very helpful in assisting me to find books on occasion.  The idea behind it is to gain a little insight into the mindset of collectors from outside of the U.S. about some of the Spanish language comics that are becoming more and more sought after here in the States.
