    Default 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.

    I did, however, just find out that I met Jordia Bellaire, the colorist on Mara, at some show when she was THIRTEEN and sold her a copy of one of my books.I've never felt older.
    Seems fair enough. But not to Paul Pope. He tweets;
    @davezissou @royalboiler It's a pet peeve~people talking about "feeling old". My grandma is 93, never complains, despite pain. F that.

    @davezissou @royalboiler Someone inserted the bit about Mara & colorist & my "feeling old" without my permission/approval. Never said that.

    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.

    It looks like an accident. Part of Wood?s answer to the same question stayed in the interview with Paul Pope. A simple copy & paste mistake and not something premeditated.
    Scandal averted! For now...

    I love reading the Image backmatter (and wish the Big Two could do something similar instead of mid-story ads that often confuse me briefly as I flip pages), but they've made this flub several times and ruined some pretty great creator interviews. Hire better interns, guys, they'll be happy to check this stuff!

    I thought that answer seemed very familair when I read it, but couldn't remember which creator had said it originally. Glad to see it isn't just a case of me getting senile.

    It could be worse. I keep getting confused with Paul Pope's grandmother. But we both feel young, so no complaints!

    Your grandson is quite talented. You should be very proud.

    What's scary (to me) is the fact that it's :ahem: conceivable that such a person exists. Shit, now I'm going to have to get hold of the girl I went to prom with, just to be sure.

    Haha, that sounds like Paul.

    He made many a classmate jealous and many a young co-ed swoon in our days in art school at OSU.
