The text is a transcription of an interview she did at The Comics Workbook Rowhouse Residency in 2016. Vanesa is a once in a lifetime talent who studied with George Pratt and who has worked with Grant Morrison. Follow her on Instagram – @vrdelrey – and http://vrdelrey.com/

Wacky Packs

I took the crappy 5 dollar sets out from my boxes and made crappy drawings and now they’re 12.99 with free shipping in the States. The sets are specific to the character or team or title. Like for the ‘Nam set there are a bunch of ‘Nam plus other Vietnam genre comics. The Soviet Super Soldier pack has a bunch of weird annuals of one off Marvel titles. Generally there are 9 to 12 comics per pack. So it works out to a dollar a comic basically. Great stocking stuffer comics.

Instead of making 10 different posts I just made one – if you buy one please add a “note to seller” to specify which pack you want, plus your 2nd and 3rd choices in case the one you want has already sold. If you don’t get the one you wanted I can refund your money. If this is confusing email me at santoroschoolATgmail or DM me on Instagram – @santoro.frank – and I can walk you through it.

Daredevil, Web of Spiderman, and Xman wacky packs have sold (I will try to keep this list updated.)

$12.99 – States only – free shipping

Pompeii Medallion


I commissioned thee great Airi Maeno to make silver medallions based off of my drawings. This drawing was from my book Pompeii. It’s something I could imagine someone would wear two thousand years ago. A simple medallion of a loved one. A portrait. Something permanent to challenge disappearance.

Airi Maeno is one of my oldest friends and an amazing artist. She studied with her Father, a master jeweler. Airi transferred my drawing and made a mold in an ancient tradition and cast the medallion in silver. These are the tests. The artist proofs. We made an edition of ten. We are selling six of them. 99 bux postpaid in the States and 123 bux postpaid overseas. Please DM me (@santoro.frank on IG) or email me santoroschool@gmail.com and I will happily send more pics. Thank you Airi (@airimaeno on IG). This is one of my favorite collaborations ever xoxoFS
