Excellent Taste! 

1. How did you put the templates on the meme? 

2. What's the best thing about Deforge, Crane, and O'Malley's work, to you? 

3. Did you know Lewis Trondheim created Kaput and Zosky? 

4. Have you read Seconds and Capture Creatures? Building Stories?

1. Sorry I can't remember

2. Deforge has a very unique style all of his own and he's a great a writer. Crane is a print master and just creates beautiful images and really well put together books. O'Malley is straight up enjoyable all the time, he might actually be one of the funniest comic writers working, he's got that rhythm.

3. I don't know what Kaput and Zosky is!

4. I've read Seconds and Building Stories. I don't know what Capture Creatures is.

I should say I made this thing abround 5 years ago so it could use some updating. I think it'd probably be much smaller now, but include some things that aren't comics.

Nick, you are crazy to put me in here but I'm honoured.

This is one hell of a list. A lot of people here would be in mine too if I'd bothered to do one. And there are some people I don't know that I really want to check out now.

Awesome! I think this meme is really fascinating and I'll probably be a sheep and follow suit haha. I love all these, especially Scott Campbell (23). Btw I don't mean to be nit-picky, but it's Dave Gibbons, not Dan

FANTASTIC influences. I am so bookmarking this so I can come back and look this shit up when I have the chance. And the things I actually recognized, I got excited about. (This reminds me to catch up on Nedroid, haha!). This was intensely fun to look at - did you actually take the time to pick the most awesome pictures to represent these things you could think of? Because srsly. (The Kate Beaton one made me laugh just thinking about it. :'D)

Email it to me for now. You can definitely post it here but I think we'll want to wait until we're closer to the release date to do that. (You work crazy fast.)

P.S. At least five of your influences will be involved with the series in some way, which is pretty cool.
