The comic was read by SVU co-star Ice T and passed on to Meloni, whose assistant contacted Tettenborn about producing some signed copies of the humorous strip. The copies were framed and given to Meloni, Ice-T and co-star Mariska Hargitay, as well as producers Dick Wolf and Neal Baer.
For her part, Tettenborn was pleased.
HOLY SH*T, YOU GUYS. Christopher Meloni owns a signed copy of my comic. Oh, and he gave the other framed copies to Ice T, Mariska Hargitay, and executive producers Dick Wolf and Neal Baer. YEAH. THAT HAPPENED.
I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say this is the COOLEST THING THAT HAS EVER HAPPENED. (“What about the Renaissance?” This is cooler.) Christopher Meloni, you are the most awesome mothereffer I’ve ever been in contact with (and your assistant is awesome!). Thanks for liking my comic and not sending me a cease-and-desist order.
Meloni, by the way, is a bit of a comic fan. He’s developed the comic AvaTom for Ape Entertainment. He’s also the voice of animated Hal Jordan in Green Lantern: First Flight.
Plus … ANYTHING looks incredible when it’s being held in the hands of none other than Detective Eliot Stabler.
