Welcome to another edition of Ten Tweets Thursday, this week’s guest is J. Bone (@gobukan) a True Patriot contributor and creator of Gobukan! Check out his responses to the Ten Tweets below!
#1 What is the first comic you remember reading?
First comic was either HOT STUFF The Little Devil or BATMAN vs. MANBAT w/Manbat chasing a car on the cover. Both were my Dad’s comics
#2 You can only pick two: all time favorite comic book characters?
This one’s easy – Spider-Man and Wonder Woman! I’ve drawn ’em both and will continue to draw ’em whether I’m paid for it or not.
#3 What is your favorite series arc, limited or mini-series of all time?
My favourite “of all time” changes. I have no particular “of all time” favourite comic series so I’m going to say KAMANDI
#4 How do you read your comics? Print, digital, trades?
I read comics in print in floppies or trades, on my couch, in the tub, on the bus, etc…
#5 What do you consider to be the most “obscure” title you read?
Another tough one. Is DEVIL DINOSAUR obscure? Not really. I’d say GOBUKAN is pretty obscure. It’s also my webcomic gobukan.wordpress.com/#
#6 You get to pick three: Favorite writers (current or of all time)?
More of an artist follower but I do like Mark Waid on DAREDEVIL, Darwyn Cooke on MINUTE MEN and J.Torres on FAMILY DYNAMIC/TITANS GO!
#7 What is your favorite comic collector’s item?
Mego’s WONDER WOMAN doll from 1978 which I found at a comic con complete with extra outfits for $10. Wicked!
#8 As a reader do you tend to stick to a specific publisher, follow creative teams or follow characters?
I’m very much an artist follower. If they’re drawing a character I like, that’s bonus. My long boxes are arranged by artist.
#9 You get to pick three (again): Favorite artists?
Another easy one based entirely on whose books are constantly at hand – Kirby, Toth and Byrne.
#10 What was the last comic you read before answering these questions?
ROCKETEER: Cargo of Doom #2. Chris Samnee is ah-mazing.
***Special True Patriot 11th Tweet!***
#11 You are involved in the True Patriot project on Indiegogo: who is your character and what makes them a superhero?
My TRUE PATRIOT character is the Golden Owl. He helps his fellow Canadians anyway he can using power of flight and golden owl screech.
