Famous Fanmail #141 Scott Kurtz

Filed under: Famous Fanmail — Doorman @ 11:07 am

You may not be surprised to learn that most people in the comic business grew up reading comic books. However, you might be interested in knowing what they were reading. Here’s a look at “Famous Fanmail”!

After the success of Invincible and the Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman decided to launch his subsequent ongoing series, the Astounding Wolf-Man. He gave the first issue away for free in that year’s Free Comic Book Day Event. In the letters pages of the second issue (cover date – July 2007) , we get to see Scott Kurtz‘s reaction! He’s best known for his creator-owned series, Pvp.
