Welcome to another Ten Tweets Thursday, this week featuring the talented scribe and artist of Rust, Royden Lepp (@RoydenLepp). Rust Vol. 2: Secrets of the Cell will be in stores soon, with that, check out his thoughts on the Ten Tweets.
#1 What is the first comic you remember reading?
For some reason my Dad put a copy of Spectacular Spiderman in my Easter basket along with some chocolates one year. That was the first.
#2 You can only pick two: all time favorite comic book characters?
#3 What is your favorite series arc, limited or mini-series of all time?
Early 90’s, my friend had an X-men series that filled up one big comic box. I borrowed it one weekend. Can’t remember the name.
#4 How do you read your comics? Print, digital, trades?
Trades. But my reading is few and far between these days. I don’t allow myself much time to read. Worried it’ll influence my writing.
#5 What do you consider to be the most “obscure” title you read?
Depends what you mean by “read”. I spend most of my money on French comics that I can’t read.
#6 You get to pick three: Favorite writers (current or of all time)?
I’ve been so.. ‘unsaturated’ in comics for the last few years I don’t think I can name 3. But I have always loved Sam Keith.
#7 What is your favorite comic collector’s item?
I have a 10″ Spiderman toy from the 70’s. It’s poorly modeled, cheap, and basically looks like an overweight birthday-party Spiderman.
#8 As a reader do you tend to stick to a specific publisher, follow creative teams or follow characters?
I’m reading a lot of Archaia books right now 🙂 But I tend to follow creators.
#9 You get to pick three (again): Favorite artists?
Mark Bagley – the first artist that I began to recognize that I liked. Claire Wendling – French artist. Glen Keane – Disney animator.
#10 What was the last comic you read before answering these questions?
ha.. again.. if you’re flexible on the term “read” then ‘Yaxin’ by Manuel Arenas and Dimitri Vey. Otherwise ‘Cardboard’ by Doug TenNapel
