Welcome to the very first Ten Tweets Thursday, a feature where comic fans, internet journalists, creators and more get to sound off on 10 set questions with 140 character answers. This week, we find out the hidden secrets of Keven Skinner (@kevenskinner), Music Editor for The Daily BLAM!
#1 What is the first comic you remember reading?
Probably an old issue of X-Men or one of my uncle’s creepy Conan The Destroyer comics. Although I did start early with Spawn & AVP
#2 You can only pick two: all time favorite comic book characters?
Wolverine & Venom will always stick with me the most. I lean towards the lone badass or antihero types.
#3 What is your favorite limited or mini-series of all time?
My favorite comic series of all time is Preacher. It’s the perfect book beginning to end with a load of full blown crazy inbetween.
#4 How do you read your comics? Print, digital, trades?
I’ve preferred reading my stuff in trade since I dont buy comics anymore. Although digital issues on my iPad are winning me over big time
#5 What do you consider to be the most “obscure” title you read?
I tend to stick with mainstream creator owned comics, but out of those, ‘Crossed’ is the one I like but can’t recommend to humans.
#6 You get to pick three: Favorite writers (current or of all time)?
Garth Ennis is my all time favorite but Robert Kirkman is right up there since Im a psycho TWD fan. Eric Powell is a hero of mine too
#7 Do you listen to music while reading? If so, what genre?
I can’t listen to music while reading, although If I did then Trent Reznor’s stuff would fit well in the atmosphere of stuff I enjoy
#8 As a reader do you tend to stick to a specific publisher, follow creative teams or follow characters?
I grew up a Marvel kid, but I do find myself preferring DC: Vertigo, Dark Horse and Image as an adult. I don’t discriminate anymore.
#9 You get to pick three (again): Favorite artists?
Charlie Adlard is a personal fav. Plus he drew me in a TWD zombie cameo (issue 91). Todd McFarlane & Mike Mignola are comic gods.
#10 What was the last comic you read before answering these questions?
Batman #7. The Court of Owls scares the hell out of me. Not to mention Bruce Wayne backhands Nightwing in mid conversation. Hilarious.
