Ten Tweets Thursday with @Iron_Chris

Time for another Ten Tweets Thursday! This week we feature a name you may recognize from our new monthly feature Shop Talk, Chris Humphries (@Iron_Chris), owner of Alpha Comics in Calgary, Alberta! Check out what he had to say when confronted with the legendary Ten Tweets….

#1 What is the first comic you remember reading?

Kraven’s Last Hunt is my earliest comic story I remember reading. I was eight.

#2 You can only pick two: all time favorite comic book characters?

Wolverine has always been a favourite of mine. 2nd… I’ll pick Spider-Man.

#3 What is your favorite limited or mini-series of all time?

Watchmen is a big one that comes to mind.

#4 How do you read your comics? Print, digital, trades? 

I usually just read floppies, trades on occasion.

#5 What do you consider to be the most “obscure” title you read? 

Prophet is a pretty weird one I think.

#6 You get to pick three: Favorite writers (current or of all time)?

Currently loving @DanSlott @Ssnyder1835 @Remender

#7 Do you listen to music while reading? If so, what genre? 

I prefer to read when it’s quiet.

#8 As a reader do you tend to stick to a specific publisher, follow creative teams or follow characters?

I follow wherever the good comics are. Usually that means not following a character.

#9 You get to pick three (again): Favorite artists?

@humberto_ramos @GregCapullo and all time favourite since I was a kid @JimLee

#10 What was the last comic you read before answering these questions? 

Aquaman #8. Always look forward to this one on the 4th Wednesday of the month.
