One of the nice things about comics is that the people who write and draw ’em are just as likely to show up at Forbidden Planet on a Wednesday to pick up their stack as anyone else.
And that’s when we strike!
For our inaugural Five Questions, John Petrie thwipped Spidey writer, Dan Slott to the wall and made him talk. Then there was some awkward, upside-down makey-outies, but that’s neither here nor there, except to say, “We’re all very sorry, Dan.”
On to the questions!
Forbidden Planet: Who would win in a creepy laugh contest: Green Goblin, Hobgoblin or the Joker?
Dan Slott: Now that Norman Osborn’s had the Goblin Serum removed from his system? Sadly, no contest. Joker.
FP: Since we all love cosplayers, what’s the one character you’ve never personally seen cosplayed that would make you smile?
DS: Spider-UK. I’m going to a show in London this summer, so fingers crossed.
FP: So, chaos magic, does it exist or not?
DS: Totally exists. We confirmed that during my run of MIGHTY AVENGERS.
FP: Would you rather live in a world without any flavor ice cream or a world without movie popcorn?
DS: Without movie popcorn. Couldn’t live in a world without ice cream.
FP: If you could have dinner with any comic book character (they’re paying), who would it be and why?
DS: Spider-Man. And I’d pay. Would just want to apologize for the hell I’ve put him through in the past… and… will be putting him through in the future.
FP: If you could write a series with any character (or characters) who don’t currently appear in a Marvel book, who would they be?
DS: Indiana Jones, Doctor Who, and Batman.
Thanks again, Dan! And keep an eye out — there will be more FIVE QUESTIONS WITH FORBIDDEN PLANET featuring your favorite comic creators coming soon!
