Who is your favorite publisher and why?

Currently, my favorite publisher is :01 Second; they’ve been printing some great graphic novels of late.

-Peter A.

My favorite publisher is Image right now. They have been putting out some great stories and the variants have been limited to one or 2 for new issues. Road of Bones was a recent good read.

-David Ribeiro

Marvel by far because they have the best characters and the most relevant and interesting stories. I grew up primarily on X-Men and i still have a huge love for them.

Who is your favorite character and why?

Thor and FOR ONE REASON ONLY… He can out drink Wolverine lol.

-July

Spider-Man has always been my favorite character and not just because we share the same first name, but because when I was growing up I felt Parker’s personality was similar to my own: nerdish; shy; socially awkward. However, I wasn’t bitten by a radioactive spider, so I got to live vicariously through Spidey’s exploits and character-building adventures. All of which helped me become the father, husband, teacher/librarian, that I am today.

-Peter A.

Doctor Strange cuz magic is cool and he sports a sexier goatee than Tony Stark.

-Seanieboy

Harley Quinn but mainly for the batman animated series. I like to think I’m a huge collector of Harley. As for comics I have to go with the punisher. Even though I dont agree with how he handles things but by far my favorite comicbook character loving his war of the realms tie ins.

-Daniel Rios

Daredevil for sure. He is a tormented soul who continually struggles with the pursuit of good versus evil. He views justice as very clear cut in a very confused world of Hell’s Kitchen.

-Tim Rabroker

Captain America, because he’s the moral compass of the Marvel universe and represents the very best of us.

What is your favorite franchise?

The Fantastic Four. It’s got the excitement of an adventure series. It’s got the Crazy Comic Sci-Fi side of it. But most importantly, it’s got compelling characters. With a good writer behind the wheel, Fantastic Four is about as good as it gets.
