So here's the craziest thing that's ever happened to me: I'm in a comic book!
Well, my face is anyway.
A few months ago a reader emailed me asking if I'd read The Fade Out, because she was pretty sure one of the characters was based off of yours truly. When she sent me a snap of the character, I had a twilight zone moment, like whaaaaat? That me. In a Brubaker comic. Am I also married to Chris Evans and we have five pink cats? Because that's unreal.
So I posted on Twitter about it, and the artist confirmed that he had indeed used a photo of me as inspiration for Dottie Quinn. I went right out to my local comic book shop, I Like Comics (aka best comic book shop eva), and picked up the issues they had. And now the Volume I paperback is out, so I get to have that on the shelf.
It's definitely a mature work, with Hollywood, murder, and the dark side of glamour gracing the pages.
You can find The Fade Out by Ed Brubaker, Sean Phillips, and Elizabeth Breitweiser here, or better yet support your local brick and mortar comic book shop.
