Though the majority of the comic books I grew up loving are DC, I’m not the kind of person who says, “I’m only going to read DC, or Marvel, or Vertigo.” I’m not a comic book snob. Lately I’ve been really into a book calledThe Last Days of American Crime. It’s written by Rick Remender, who worked on Marvel’s Uncanny X-Force, Punisher, and Venom titles and illustrated by Greg Tocchini, the Brazilian comic book artist. It is a vigilante comic book that mixes in elements of Orwellian social critique. My boyfriend, who is also an incredible comic book geek, gave it to me to read.
For the June/July issue of BlackBook, Adrianne Palicki discussed her obsession with comic books and, surprisingly, Pogs!
I had no idea she was such a comic book nerd! I love it! It’s almost too bad the Wonder Woman pilot she did ended up being absolutely abysmal. She was the best part of it with the writing being the absolute worst… even worse than the outfit they made for it.
