This seems to have slowed down enough, so I’m about ready to reveal mine. The truth is…I actually have 19 signatures in my copy of Superman Unchained. (Thanks, Baltimore Comic-Con!)
Despite everyone thinking it was the lie, my incredibly unpopular movie opinion is, in fact, true. Look, The Dark Knight is in my top 10 overall and I absolutely love it (and Batman Begins, for that matter), but Rises is something else entirely. I’m a sucker for third installments/finales, and this is no exception. Despite others’ problems w/ it, I still see it as an amazing conclusion to my favorite trilogy ever.
And yes, I did get to meet Jim Lee and Geoff Johns about a year ago in what was one of the most memorable nights of my life. I was actually lucky enough to win an early DCU sweepstakes to go to the Titans premiere in NYC and have a meet-and-greet with Jim Lee. There were supposed to be 25 winners, but only myself and one other person were able to make it, which made the event even more special. He even drew a couple impromptu sketches in the books I brought for him to sign. There were a bunch of other DC people there that I got to meet (Frank Miller, Dan DiDio, Adam Glass, Jason Fabok, Marv Wolfman, Tiffany Smith), but it was at the theater that I got to meet Geoff Johns as well, which was probably the best surprise of the night. Getting to talk to my favorite artist ever and then meeting my favorite writer was a dream come true!
