It’s Thursday! That means a Ten Tweets Thursday and this week’s guest is Ben D. (@punkrocksellout) a huge fan of the medium we all love, comics! Check out what Ben had to say about the infamous Ten Tweets.
#1 What is the first comic you remember reading?
First comic ever had to be an Archie Double Digest from the grocery store checkout line. First from a LCS was the original B&W TMNT #1
#2 You can only pick two: all time favorite comic book characters?
Batman and … can I pick Batman twice? He’s the main character that has stuck with me since childhood. Maybe Wolverine from the other side
#3 What is your favorite series arc, limited or mini-series of all time?
Daytripper by Gabriel Ba and Fabio Moon is an amazing meditation on life. It’s a book I will return to for the rest of my life
#4 How do you read your comics? Print, digital, trades?
In an effort to reduce clutter, I’ve switched to getting all my monthlies digitally now. I’ll double dip and get trades for things I love
#5 What do you consider to be the most “obscure” title you read?
I don’t know how “obscure” it is, but Mind MGMT by Matt Kindt is my favorite book right now that more people should be reading.
#6 You get to pick three: Favorite writers (current or of all time)?
Scott Snyder, Jeff Lemire, and Jonathan Hickman are my top three now. I’ll buy and enjoy anything those guys put out.
#7 What is your favorite comic collector’s item?
Probably the copy of Locke and Key: Clockworks my wife got signed by Joe Hill for my birthday, or my Ash from Army of Darkness figure
#8 As a reader do you tend to stick to a specific publisher, follow creative teams or follow characters?
It’s all about the creators for me.Just looking for a quality read,regardless of the publisher.If it features a character I love, bonus
#9 You get to pick three (again): Favorite artists?
Sean Murphy, Ramon Perez & JH Williams. Again, I’ll buy anything they put out. Francavilla too, but he’s too productive to get everything
#10 What was the last comic you read before answering these questions?
I’m WAY behind on my reading,so it was actually I, Vampire 0.That book is my surprise of the new 52. Stuff of Legend Vol1 last night too
