My Origin in 20 words or less: It was a stormy night. The wind
was howling, shaking the tree branches with its fury. The branches scraped
against the windows, causing a chill to rise up my back. (Oh yes, I was
born on July 14th.)
Influences on my Faux DC work will be: Jerry Siegel and Edgar Rice
Burroughs for their incredible, impeccable storytelling skills.
I hate the way John Byrne has handled Superman because
in my opinion, he took away the magic, the being, the soul out of Superman.
The origin was fine the way it was! Jeez! (Oh yeah, now he's screwing
things up at Marvel! So much for the Hulk and Spider-Man!) Oh yeah, and
the Power of Shazam! guys (Captain Marvel Jr. named CM2? Come on!)
The first DC comic I read when I get home is: Either Batman, Robin,
Detective Comics, Green Arrow, Green Lantern, whatever's out that week.
And when I'm reading that comic(s) I listen to: Punk, like Operation
Ivy (Yay!), Rancid (Double Yay!), Pennywise...et cetera.
And when I ain't writin' or readin' comics, I: Usually practice
my drums, skateboard, and listen to Punk (the last two at the same time).
But all of this is irrelevant 'cos: I write a lot better than I
show for some reason. Oh, and I was born.
