Over on Comic Bloc, the question is, how much can you namedrop?:
I’m curious to know:
Who are cool people to email with that works in the comics busines? I’ve gotten some emails back and they all rock in comics.
I’ve emailed :
Joe Quesada (he emails me back every now and then)
Judd Winick (see Quesada)
Brad Meltzer (we trade emails, it takes him a few days but it’s always nce to see him respond)
Ed Brubaker (emailed him a few times and gotten a response)
Marv Wolfman ( see Meltzer)
Allan Heinberg (through Myspace)
Matthew Clark (see Heinberg)
Neal Adams (emailed him but never got a response)
Ethan Van Sciver
I think thats it.
Most people will email you back. I’d recommend (if you want a response back):
As you might expect, the rest of the thread is full of people saying “I email [creatorX] all the time and they’re great,” but my favorite responses come from the man who knows Alan Moore:
I live in Northampton. So I see him about the town. At first I was nervous like ‘excuse me are you Alan Moore etc’!!!! But now if we see each other he’ll ask how I am etc and have a chat if he’s got time or were going the same way.
With one post, a reputation ruined.
