Kevin Smith, god of all things good, delivered his personal touch to me today: he finally continued writing the Spider-Man/Black Cat series he started years ago. To make up for the lost time, he sent me issues #4 & 5 signed (see picture right).
Yes, this is the same Kevin Smith, who directed and wrote Clerks. He's a director (Clerks, Chasing Amy, Dogma, etc.), a writer (has a new book out, Silent Bob Speaks), a producer (he produced an Academy Award winning movie, Good Will Hunting), and a comic book creator (Green Arrow, Daredevil, Spider-Man & Black Cat). He also frequently hosts morning radio programs (SF, Vancouver, LA) for days at a time, and is an incredible speaker (if you have not seen An Evening With Kevin Smith, you must rent it today).
And yes, I know we look very similar. I've lost more weight than he has, lately, though, and I don't wear the woobs. Thanks, Kev!
