I love this guy. Great writer, great friend, I just have huge affection for everything I've ever read of his. And his dedication to his craft and characters is simply astounding.
Marc created the new MANHUNTER character, about which, I'll say more in a moment. But the book itself is a pleasure through and through. Smart, funny, scary, dark, joyous, and full of humanity in a way many top ten books couldn't achieve if they tried for a century.
But Kate herself is a bit of a revelation--my kind of heroine! She didn't make speeches about kicking ass, she just DID and man, you better recognize!
Marc has racked up a ton of prestigious awards and nominations despite writing relatively few actual comics. He collaborated with Bendis on the wonderful TORSO, with P. Craig Russell on an acclaimed Dr. Strange one-shot, and more, but I'll always know him as Manhunter's daddy.
And as the weird dude who gets attacked in a freakishly obscure film I saw on Netflix whose name I won't mention. "Hey, who is that guy with the hair? He sounds so familiar...HOLY CRAP, IT'S MARC ANDREYKO!"
Thanks for coming to visit, Marc!
