Johnny has got many great friendships with a lot of people. He is a very loyal and loving friend. Here are some honerable mentions: Hunter S. Thompson, Marlon Brando, Patti Smith, Bruce Witkin, Doug Stanhope, Bill Carter, Tommy Henriksen, Jonathan Shaw, Jim Jarmusch, …. Johnny’s friendship with Tim Burton is the most famous one but also a very precious one. They connect on so many levels; creatively, emotionally. I find it beautiful how they have been friends for so long and it has resulted in so many great films. But my ultimate favorite one is, of course, his friendship bromance with Marilyn Manson. They have matching tattoos and matching spirits. They speak and treat eachother with such love and respect and are so freaking gay for eachother I love it! They make each other laugh and support and help each other. Truly an inspiring duo that has become a synonym in this fandom for fun, laughter, cuteness and happiness and for that I am truly grateful.
Whats your favorite comicbook writer for the Batman and Catwoman relationship?
It’s a toss-up between Jeph Loeb and Doug Moench. If I had to pick I think Moench has a slight edge over Loeb, just because he wrote so so many great and different versions of the relationship both in canon and in alternate universes. Also he wrote one of my favorite batcat meet cutes of all time along with one of my favorite batcat quotes.
But then again Jeph Loeb wrote Hush, and like it’s Batman: Hush. This is the comic that got me shipping (and reading Batman comics). Jeph Loeb also wrote The Long Halloween which is my favorite Batman arc of all time. Both really nailed the dynamics.
I don’t know. Don’t make me pick. It’s like choosing between my children.

I will forever be moved by the amount of love and support that Johnny got/gets from his family and friends. Vanessa, Lily, Manson, Patti, Winona, Shaw, Lori, Paul, Terry, Bruce, Tommy, Doug, Vanessa’s sister Alysson and so many others. Literally everyone stood up. I think it is beautiful that such a beautiful person is surrounded by so many beautiful people who have good intentions. They are all so lucky that they have each other. Truly inspiring ♥♥♥♥
