Far from the auction halls of the elite, The Collector seeks out rare and mysterious artifacts across the world. At home in the salons of Paris as he is in the jungles of Borneo, The Collector is a man who has dedicated his life to finding objects very special and almost unknown, which tracks through his research in a variety of locations. But beware, a man who comes into possession of such items does not hesitate to use any means without scruple. Set against the backdrop of late 19th-century colonialism, The Collector is a delightful, swashbuckling adventure by a master of European comic books - Sergio Toppi!

The protagonist is a complex character, both honorable yet extremely entitled. He searches for items from different cultures and lores adding artifacts to his various collections while navigating dangerous situations.

This strange man only known as the collector gathers obscure treasures and artifacts and will stop at nothing to get what he wants. The illustration for this is some of the most stunning work I’ve seen.
