David Choe – The Comics And Graffiti Artist Who Is Now Richer Than All The Rest

Comics and graffiti artist David Choe, who was inspired by the likes of Rob Liefeld, Jim Lee and Todd McFarlane, is about to become richer than all of them.

His graphic novel Slow Jams is a much desired item, selling for around $200…  but that’s not the matter at issue here.
