Strong contender for my daughter’s Panel of the Week.
On September 21, 2012, Rob Corddry and I had one of our periodic ManCalls™, and the topic du jour was my newfound obsession with comics.
Reading back, I kinda can’t believe the crazy impact Rob’s writer and series recommendations had on what I’m totally obsessed with now.
God bless him. God bless him hard.
Below are very important (and really hastily typed) Markdown notes from a year-old phone call.
Meetings can be…awkward.
Everyone assumed someone else would bring bagels.
But, alas: no one brought bagels.
Ultimate Spider-Man #1 (2000)
"No more mutants."
There’s this little part of me that wants to send the TPB of House of M to every nerd I know.
That’s a Kickstarter that knowledgable people should fund the shit out of.
Moon Knight (2011)
Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev.
My God, Dan is just so manifestly wrong.
This is an amazing series.
Moon Knight Vol. 4, #12
Bendis and Maleev, amirite?
Scarlet fans! you patient revolutionaries! every night of Hanukkah Alex Maleev has been sending me chunks of the long-overdue issue six. if this keeps up the Chanukah miracle will be Scarlet going to the printer!! don’t believe me? here is an exclusive never before seen first look.
Don’t know what Scarlet is? it’s the gorgeous creator owned comic from me and Alex.
I am so looking forward to this.
No way I could recommend Scarlet highly enough. BMB and Alex Maleev are easily in my Top 3 comic peeps working today, and they are firing on every fucking cylinder in this marvelous 6-issue series. Can’t wait for 7 to drop.
