I’m a pretty normal guy, I understand what Phil Robertson from Duck Dynasty was talking about when he was preaching the benefits of a woman’s vagina over some man ass, but I have to tell you, I love me some Chip Zdarsky. For those of you who don’t know, Zdarsky is the artist of my favorite comic book, Sex Criminals. I had never heard of him before SC, I became interested in the book after meeting Matt Fraction at Rose City Comic Con. After following Fraction on Tumblr, he reblogged a post from a series of regular posts that Zdarsky does, called Applebee’s & Me, where he trolls Applebee’s into having a conversation with him.
For those of you who know me, you should be able to understand how this amuses me, I just love this type of humor, and Chip nails it. But today sealed my man love for Chip, I was walking into work in the worst mood possible, but Darrell had something to brighten my mood immediately, the 4th printing’s cover for Sex Criminals #1. It features Zdarsky and Fraction in an Awkward Photos inspired picture. To top it off, there is even an Applebee’s reference on the cover, which turned my heart from a dark, damp place into a warm inviting resting cove (*Chip Zdarsky only allowed entrance).
To top it all off, there’s rumors (unless he cancels after somehow stumbling upon this blog) that he’s going to be at Emerald City Comic Con, along with Fraction, so I’m buying several copies of the 4th printing of Sex Criminals for autographs. Afterwards, I’ll be hanging out at Applebee’s, waiting Chip.
