Oh, yeah…this happened.
I wanted to be all cool and be all calm about it, and I’ve held off from being a crazy fanboy (online…I have freaked out to some friends). But now I’m saying “screw that, this is amazing! People need to know!”
I gave Chip an issue of Robin & Cat at the Cincy Comicon (great con to meet writers and artists). He sent me this message about two weeks after that, and it blew me away. And he’s following the comic! I couldn’t believe it! Still can’t, actually. Sex Criminals is just, well, everyone knows how great it is by now, right? So for the artist of Sex Criminals to look at my little rinky-dink comic and say “It’s fantastic”…I can’t get over it. Sorry that you’re reading what’s basically a big pat on the back for me…but I’m also not sorry. IT’S SO COOL!
Chip, thank you so, so much for reading the comic! And thank you for helping to create the “Stan Lee” variant cover.
If you want to read what Chip Zdarsky is reading, my comic is right here.
