Matt Wagner's "Z"

What do you do?... when one of your favorite comic book creators [Matt Wagner] loves a character [Zorro] so much that he contacts the company that has just gotten the rights to said character [Dynamite - the same company bringing us Clint Eastwood's The Man with No Name] and offers them his services as cover artist for the series?

What do you do?... when the company [Dynamite] counters with an offer for the creator [Matt Wagner] to not only provide the covers, but to come on board as the art director for the series and to write the first storyline?

Give up?

Here's what you do: 1] You post the info on your blog with a link to the interview at Newsarama where you learned the info. 2] You post a link to Matt Wagner's website where they can see the full Zorro drawing that he did long before learning about the new gig. 3] You tell your local comic shop owner to keep his eye out for the new Zorro series coming from Dynamite and Matt Wagner and 4] You promise to quit asking so many questions.

Yeah...and you also attempt to not completely creep said genius out with bizarre fetish-like sketch requests of iconic Italian 80's action stars...

Too late...

Wagner Rules!!!!!!!!!!!
