EIGHT QUESTIONS from MIKE CAVALLARO
What’s your favorite book that wasn’t written or drawn by you?
That’s impossible to answer. But I do love Vonnegut and Tolkien. Reading Moonshadow by J.M. DeMatteis and Jon J. Muth was one of my major inspirations to pursue comics way back when I was a youngin’. Other favs include Buddha by Osamu Tezuka, almost anything by Joann Sfar, and Thor by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. Almost anything by Kirby, really.
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.
It would probably be a book, since there’ll be no electricity for other media. I dunno. Lord Of The Rings? It’s long, and it’s about everything.

By being king of the zombies.
What’s your favorite word?
