21 Questions: Dave Coverly

Bio 21 Questions Blog Promotion
  1. Who is your favorite literary character?

    Owen Meany. Or David Sedaris when he writes about himself.

  2. If you could make a cameo appearance in a show, what show would it be?


  3. What is your greatest fear?

    Deepest fear: Something bad happening to my family.

    Shallowest fear: Gingivitis.

  4. One thing you could eat for the rest of your life?

    Red Vines (washed down with Bell’s Two Hearted Ale).

  5. Favorite movie? Worst movie?

    Favorite: 3-way tie (yeah, I know, cheating, but what’re you gonna do?) between Breaking Away, Diva, and Shaun of the Dead

    Worst: Young Adult. Hands down, the worst movie I’ve seen – not in the sense that it’s the most poorly done or most poorly acted, but it’s a weak story that ends so condescendingly I had to watch the last 10 minutes twice to make sure my anger wasn’t misplaced. It wasn’t.

  6. If you could come back as a historical figure/anyone, who would it be?

    I’d come back as Jesus, just so I’d know whether all the stories are true. And then, either way, I’d go on a media tour.

  7. Last text message I sent...

    …took forever to write, since I have the world’s oldest flip-phone.

  8. What is your motto?

    “Never trust a person who has a motto.”

  9. What song do you have on repeat?

    “Nice Guy” by Max Eider.

  10. Ultimate vacation?

    I’d love to take my whole family to Croatia, specifically to Dubrovnik and Mostar.

  11. What do you consider your greatest achievement?

    Neither Alayna (17) nor Simone (13) has run off to tour with a boy band.

  12. What is your favorite cartoon/comic character?

    I’ll play fair this time and just pick one: Herman (by Jim Unger).

  13. If you weren't drawing, what would you be doing?

    Drinking. Oh, you mean for a living? Writing, definitely, or if I’d veered more heavily into academia, I would have loved to study and teach linguistics. I’m exciting that way.

  14. My biggest pet peeve is...

    Just ONE? Sigh… OK: People who text while driving. Drives me nuts!

  15. Who do you admire/who is your role model?

    So many people, but I’ll keep it short: My wife, for her mental toughness taking on chronic pain; my parents, for showing me how kindness is key; and my high school journalism teacher, Kenny Zelnis, who pushed me to give my creative side a chance.

  16. When was the last time you laughed really hard?

    Today. There was this double entendre at our family dinner, and…

  17. One thing you couldn’t live without?

    See above...

  18. Guilty pleasure?

    Zombie movies. And just horror movies in general.

    High quality beer and coffee.

  20. The best advice you've ever gotten?

    “Stop reading other people’s cartoons and find your own voice.” – Jim Borgman
