Happy Thursday, comic book fans! Today, we celebrate Thor’s Day by asking a comic fan, Kat Calamia (@ComicUno) ten questions about her reading habits. Check out what she had to say below!
#1 What is the first comic you remember reading?
My dad got me into comic books when I was really young. So the first comic books I remember reading were old Superman silver age books.
#2 You can only pick two: all time favorite comic book characters?
This is very easy for me – Mayday Parker (Spider-Girl) and Kitty Pryde.
#3 What is your favorite series arc, limited or mini-series of all time?
This is tough probably something from Spider-Girl haha
#4 How do you read your comics? Print, digital, trades?
I mostly read my comic books in print, but I have a few books on my pull that I read digitally.
#5 What is your favourite independent comic you feel everyone should be picking up?
Oh wow this is though. I’m loving a lot of of indie titles, but right now if I have to choose I’m liking Paper Girls a lot.
#6 You get to pick three: Favorite writers (current or of all time)?
Tom Defalco, Geoff Johns, Gail Simone
#7 What is your favorite comic collector’s item?
They can be on the expensive side, but my favorite are statues.
#8 As a reader do you tend to stick to a specific publisher, follow creative teams or follow characters?
I have a big pull. So I tend to just try out a lot of things, but if I had to pick probably character.
#9 You get to pick three (again): Favorite artists?
Francis Manapul, Ron Frenz, and Dave Marquez
#10 What was the last comic you read before answering these questions?
Revival #47 – I can see myself reading this one a lot.
