Happy Thursday, comic fans! This week we welcome Sound On Sight comics editor Logan Dalton (@SexyGingerNerd) to the hot seat! Logan’s thoughts on comics can also be found at Geeked Out Nation….let’s see how he fared against the Ten Tweets!
#1 What is the first comic you remember reading?
It was an issue of Marvel Team-Up w/ Spider-Man and Beast I found in an old box in the attic and was the close thing to X-Men my dad had.
#2 You can only pick two: all time favorite comic book characters?
Kitty Pryde obviously. Then, probably Peter Parker because I relate to his bad luck and nerdiness. I wish I was as funny as him.
#3 What is your favorite series arc, limited or mini-series of all time?
My favorite story arc is The Sandman “Brief Lives”. I love that it’s a road trip story, myth, and a tragedy wrapped into one.
#4 How do you read your comics? Print, digital, trades?
I pick up my singles digitally through Comixology, but I get older comics and my favorite stories in trade. They look good on a bookshelf
#5 What is your favourite independent comic you feel everyone should be picking up?
The Wicked + the Divine. If you’re a fan of any kind (music, comics etc), it’s the book for you. McKelvie and Gillen are a great team.
#6 You get to pick three: Favorite writers (current or of all time)?
Neil Gaiman, Grant Morrison, and a tie between Chris Claremont and Brian Michael Bendis depending on how his X-Men run turns out.
#7 What is your favorite comic collector’s item?
It’s my signed black and white print of the various Watchmen characters signed by Dave Gibbons that I picked up at Baltimore Comic Con.
#8 As a reader do you tend to stick to a specific publisher, follow creative teams or follow characters?
I’ve followed a lot of my favorite creators over to Image.I still read tons of Marvel and Batman books and have been getting into BOOM!
#9 You get to pick three (again): Favorite artists?
Jack Kirby, Alex Ross, and Frank Quitely. I love clean, dynamic superhero art that really pops out.
#10 What was the last comic you read before answering these questions?
The last comic I read was Miles Morales Ultimate Spider-Man #9, the latest chapter in my favorite comics run of all time.
