When Paul Pope Got Mixed Up With Brian Wood

From the backmatter interviews in Image Comics titles, with Paul Pope.

What’s the best thing a fan has ever said to you?

Probably the times you meet someone who said they read your books with their kids. That is really meaningful. I like meeting people, everyone has something to say.

How so? Journalist extraordinaire Ales Kot is on the case!

I just double-checked this against the previous interview from December – the one with Brian Wood – and figured out what happened.

Scandal averted! For now…
