With the first day of New York Comic Con in full swing, we went around Artist Alley asking some of your favorite comics creators two questions:
- Who is a collaborator they want to work with
- What the best comic is that they’re reading right now.
— No one. “I’ve been lucky to work with people who actually want to work with me. That makes it easier.”
—Department of Truth.
—“There aren’t that many on my wishlist that I haven’t worked with, but Chris Samnee, Elsa Charretier, and Cliff Chiang. They’re all spectacular.”
—The Nice House on the Lake. “James Tynion is doing amazing work on that. It’s one of those books where you can tell the creators are really in sync.”
—Lee Weeks and Bruno Redondo
—Superman: Son of Kal-El and Nightwing
—Geiger by Geoff Johns and Gary Frank
Tony S. Daniel:
—Jeff Lemire, Jason Aaron, and Joe Hill
—“It’s a few years old, but I just finished Twentieth Century Boys.”
—“Would have been fun to work with Jack (Kirby) or Steve (Ditko).” “We wanted Neal Adams too for” X-Men: God Loves Man Kills, but he couldn’t come to an agreement with Marvel.
—“Nothing really comes to mind.” “I try to keep up with the X-stuff out of curiosity, but no, nothing comes to mind.”
—Esad Ribic or Todd MacFarlane
—Matt Rosenberg’s book that’s coming out: “What’s the Furthest Place from Here?”
—“Alan Moore, but I’d prefer if it weren’t perverted.”
—Department of Truth
