Q & A

What’s your favorite book?
Prose book: The Princess Bride by William Golding. Comic book: I’m very enamored with anything by Naoki Urasawa right now. His two series Pluto and 20th Century Boys are something spectacular.
If you were shipwrecked on a desert island, what one piece of media would you take with you?  If it isn’t your favorite book, explain how you came to this peculiar decision.
I would take Bone by Jeff Smith, specifically the One Volume edition. Not only is it an incredible read, but it’s large enough that I could probably make a house out of it.
What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?
Mint chocolate chip.
How are you planning to survive the zombie apocalypse?
By Never Leaving the Mall. Things always get bad when you leave the mall.
What’s your favorite word?
If you suddenly fell into a dimensional vortex and ended up in 1529, what profession would you adopt?
Lovable ragamuffin pickpocket.
Black or white?  Cats or dogs?  Apples or oranges?  Robots or vampires?
I wear black, I have a cat, I eat apples and I am a robot.
What’s the worst fortune cookie advice you ever got?  Did you take it?
“Put the data you have uncovered to beneficial use.” And I did.
