Time for another Ten Tweets Thursday! This week we feature a name you may recognize from our new monthly feature Shop Talk, Chris Humphries (@Iron_Chris), owner of Alpha Comics in Calgary, Alberta! Check out what he had to say when confronted with the legendary Ten Tweets….
#1 What is the first comic you remember reading?
Kraven’s Last Hunt is my earliest comic story I remember reading. I was eight.
#2 You can only pick two: all time favorite comic book characters?
Wolverine has always been a favourite of mine. 2nd… I’ll pick Spider-Man.
#3 What is your favorite limited or mini-series of all time?
Watchmen is a big one that comes to mind.
#4 How do you read your comics? Print, digital, trades?
I usually just read floppies, trades on occasion.
#5 What do you consider to be the most “obscure” title you read?
Prophet is a pretty weird one I think.
#6 You get to pick three: Favorite writers (current or of all time)?
#7 Do you listen to music while reading? If so, what genre?
I prefer to read when it’s quiet.
#8 As a reader do you tend to stick to a specific publisher, follow creative teams or follow characters?
I follow wherever the good comics are. Usually that means not following a character.
#9 You get to pick three (again): Favorite artists?
#10 What was the last comic you read before answering these questions?
Aquaman #8. Always look forward to this one on the 4th Wednesday of the month.
