Ahoy, and welcome to another edition of Ten Tweets Thursday! This week we welcome Ruiz Moreno (@Ruiz_Moreno) an avid reader and colourist for Bad Sun and Amelia Cole. Check out what he had to say about the infamous Ten Tweets!
#1 What is the first comic you remember reading?
Something Superman. I grew up in a Superman family but I can’t pinpoint an exact issue or team. I just know I was hooked!
#2 You can only pick two: all time favorite comic book characters?
Superman and Starborn. Superman for obvious reasons. Starborn because of the powerful representation of the good in humanity.
#3 What is your favorite series arc, limited or mini-series of all time?
There was this done in one issue of Man of Steel that had Superman socializing with a beat cop & it’s stuck with me. I loved it so much.
#4 How do you read your comics? Print, digital, trades?
Mostly digital these days because my comic shop closed forcing a switch but I still love print & still buy trades!
#5 What do you consider to be the most “obscure” title you read?
most obscure? Hmmmm. Probably Morning Glories. I may not understand what’s going on but it’s a fantastic book all around!
#6 You get to pick three: Favorite writers (current or of all time)?
So hard to answer this but I’ll give you 3 of my favorites. Chris Roberson, Scott Snyder & Kurt Busiek. So many more, though!
#7 What is your favorite comic collector’s item?
I kid you not, it’s a Lemmy button that’s shaped like Lemmy. If I could some day get a Lemmy action figure then that would be top dog!
#8 As a reader do you tend to stick to a specific publisher, follow creative teams or follow characters?
For me, it’s a little of all of them. Mostly creators but sometimes you try a comic based on a character then discover new creators!
#9 You get to pick three (again): Favorite artists?
Again with tough questions! 3 of my favorites are Ryan Ottley, Greg Capullo & Nick Brokenshire. I dislike these limited list questions!
#10 What was the last comic you read before answering these questions?
Star Wars The Dark Empire #1. I watched all the movies for the 1st time ever recently so I’m hooked on anything Star Wars right now!
