A perfect Sunday with...Will Sliney

Battling Nutella, avoiding Trolls and hitting the water

A perfect Sunday with...Will Sliney

Every week, a top writer, artist or creator reveals how they’d fill their perfect Sunday, sharing their favourite comfort reads, movies, food… anything that would make their weekend great.

Today, it’s the turn of fan-favourite comic book artist Will Sliney.

Will’s perfect Sunday… brunch

Sundays for me are all about time with the kids, so my perfect brunch is when they are having chocolate pancakes and strawberries, and I'm scoffing down whatever I can while keeping them from covering the place with Nutella.

Will’s perfect Sunday… read

The Endless Vessel by Charles Soule. Though books for me are usually audiobooks while I work. Jees, I don't know if I do lazy Sundays right at all.

Will’s perfect Sunday… comic

This weekend's reading is Fire Power. There are far too many comics on my to-read pile right now, and I need to catch up.

Batman: Year One is probably the comic I have read the most over the years.

Maybe All-New X-Men to pour over the artwork.

Will's perfect Sunday… movie

I know what it's not... It's certainly not Trolls 3, the soundtrack to which seems to be constantly playing in our house. Comfort movies for me are superhero stuff and Star Wars; the more nostalgia, the better.

Will’s perfect Sunday… TV binge

You know what? I'm surprised by how much I'm enjoying watching Gladiators. I had thought the days of a family sitting around a TV at an appointed time on a certain day were over, but for some reason, this seems to have brought it back. We can't use BBC iPlayer where we live so we can only watch live. It's a strangely positive thing. 

Will’s perfect Sunday… podcast

The Glass Cannon network. Nick Lowe introduced me to this years ago and I am hooked! I got to see them live play the Marvel TTRPG at NYCC last year, it was the first panel I went to at that show in 15 years!

Will’s perfect Sunday… album

Again... Not Trolls 3!

My wife loves Motown. She's a singer and pretty much rules the playlist. I would more than likely put on a movie or TV score. my favourite lately being Bear McCreary.

Will’s perfect Sunday… treat

No screens, out for a walk, go to a playground with the family. The more outdoors the better. We live in a seaside village here, so if it's the summer, hopefully, there is some sort of water activity involved.
