You are also asked to say what creators or celebrity guests would you like to see on your vacation… feel free to add me if you want. Hey, I wrote a couple of Image Comics titles in my time. Skybound is the studio that publishes comic books through Image Comics but makes TV shows like The Walking Dead. So obviously Robert Kirkman would be there.
