What was your favorite comic of 2013?
I couldn’t keep it to just one so I have four comix that I equally enjoyed and would like to laud: Hand-Drying in America by Ben Katchor, My Dirty Dumb Eyes by Lisa Hanawalt, TEOTFW by Charles Forsman, and The Rise by David Trustman.
Comic-wise, what are you most excited about for 2014?
I miss Warren Ellis writing monthly comic books, so I’m excited to read his new Moon Knight series with Declan Shalvey and Jordie Bellaire. Plus, Dan Slott and Mike Allred’s new Silver Surfer series and more Daredevil, Hulk and Hawkeye, from Mark Waid, Matt Fraction and their respective collaborators. Image Comics may be the most interesting comic book publisher around but Marvel is bringing back the “pop” they once preached in the late 1960s within their non-team/non-event titles.
What personal project are you working on for 2014 that you’re especially pumped about?
I’m excited to learn what comix readers will think of the next three-issues of The Fox miniseries I’m doing for Archie/Red Circle in contrast to my personal graphic novel, Fear, My Dear: A Billy Dogma Experience, published by Z2 Comics (due April 2014).
