Probably the Best Birthday Party Ever

Posted by Erik Henriksen on Mon, Sep 10, 2012 at 3:14 PM

Every parent on the planet probably hates Portland comics-writing couple Matt Fraction and Kelly Sue DeConnick—not only are they both talented and successful and great*, but they also somehow find the time to throw amazing birthday parties for their kids. Take the one that happened this past weekend, which was all over Twitter yesterday and hit io9 today: For their Godzilla-obsessed son's fifth birthday, they built a smashable city, then turned the kids loose. Here's a before shot, and here's a two-minutes-later shot.



For the record: This is what I'd like to have for my next birthday. More pictures here, where you can see that one of the doomed skyscrapers belonged to Bain Capital.

*And—conflict of interest alert!—both have been fantastic guests at Comics Underground, the quarterly comics event that Mercury Arts Editor Alison Hallett and I put on.
