Just finished the last volume of Sweet Tooth earlier this week. Left me with a tear in my eye and a lump in my throat. Also left me super excited for Trillium.

I think my favorite parts on these convention videos are the completely random cosplayers that appear on the background

Yeah, not literally 8 billion. It's much more than that. Really though, even as he adds more books to his long list, none of them lose quality. Truly good at being a prolific talent!

I like Lemire's work, but I really disliked Underwater Welder. I mean maybe it has its own audience, but I just felt like I wasted my money on something I would probably never read again. It was unusual because everything else Lemire has written, I love. I'm a little nervous to get anything else he makes on his own after that. Sweet Tooth is really good though. Stuff like that makes me rethink not picking up one of his books.

Write the 8 billion books and you'll make 8 billion bucks cause i'd buy them all dude!

Animal Man is one of my favorite books. I loved Steve Pugh's art but Rafael Albuquerque's can possibly bring the book to a whole new level. Can't wait

A lot of writers have done that in the past and then they have just burned out. Not saying that will happen with Jeff but most writers are best in the first 5-10 years or so.

"Well it starts out simply...Wonder Woman is seeking Pandora's Box"...I quote Peter Griffin and say "That means two things!" ^_^

I love this guy('s stories) so much right now!

Trillium sounds awesome, too, and I may even pick up the Trinity War thingy.
