16.) What canceled or finished comic book series should be revived?
I’m going with the crowd because I give in to peer pressure and am going to have to vote for Young Justice too. That and Sandman Mystery Theatre, that was some good stuff and I want to be the Sandman when I grow up.
17.) When and how did you discover comic books?
I had had a few as a kid but it was in 5th grade when a couple of my friends were reading them. I then decided instead of continuing to read medical journals in my hopes of being a world class surgeon, I would read Batman instead.
18.) What appeals to you most about comic books?
It’s like Christmas every Wednesday, there’s always something new and exciting to look forward to!
19.) Earliest memory of Comix Connection?
My very first comic purchased at CC was Armageddon 2001 #1 back in 1991 because it was the book that contained the most superheroes on the shelf at the time. That and being yelled at for sitting on the floor and reading.
20.) Anything interesting we should know about you?
I’m pregnant. Oh wait, that’s some other (kind of) guy. I faked being a hero once and made the front page of the paper and then a few weeks ago my sister-in-law made the front page for actually being a hero (as an EMT).
