  1. Parker/Brothers sounds so damn amazing that not being there makes me feel almost depressed.

    Also, if we ever get our own panel at a con, we’d have to go by my middle name: Jonas/Brothers.

  2. @Gavok: NEW YORK COMIC CON 2014


  3. also before anyone asks I’m probably going to try to record this, but no promises

  4. @david brothers: It would just be us playing a game of Guess Who. With such thrilling questions as, “Does he or she wear glasses?”

  5. One of my favorite comics journalists talking to one of my favorite comics writers? Maaaan I wish I could go.

  6. I see you’re now an “industry leader.” I want to bask in your reflected glory! Reflected glory!

    Break a leg, David. 😀
