What comics do you read regularly and what are your all-time favorites?

I follow One Piece and Hunter x Hunter on weekly basis and pick up the newest volumes of Knights of Sidonia, Vinland Saga and Bokurano when they come out. All time favorites include From Hell, Grant Morrison's run on Doom Patrol, Asterios Polyp, Akira and House of Five Leaves.

What writers and artists are you a fan of?

I love Tsutomu Nihei's art, if not necessarily his storytelling; still adore Morrison and Moore and Gaiman; not crazy about her art but think Natsume Ono's a great storyteller and character builder; I also think that, despite only writing children's comics, Yoshiro Togashi has more to say and more to do with the comic form than many so-called "mature" writers elsewhere.

What titles do you want to read in the future?

I need to ham up on Will Eisner and would love to start getting into more obscure work, especially rare, experimental stuff (and not just the experimental wankery that constitutes more than a little of Fantagraphic's output).

Introduction

Recent New York transplant who's been reading comics for a decade, writing them for half as long and who loves literature and music almost as much. Really interested in meeting new people now that I've moved here!
