Christopher Meloni responds to my SVU comic


As some of you know, I started doing a weekly webcomic for a little while ago. The first comic I did for them was this one about Law & Order: SVU, a show I think everyone loves despite (or because of) its ridiculous and predictable storylines. I don’t think I’ve ever turned off a rerun of SVU, even if I just saw the episode a couple of days before.

The day after the comic went up, I got an email from a man who told me he was Christopher Meloni’s assistant. According to this man, Ice T had seen my comic and sent it to Meloni, who loved it – and could I please mail them a few signed copies? Because Meloni wanted to get them framed and give them as gifts.

I got the email at work, and as soon as I read it, I said “HOLY SHIT” pretty loudly (and I then had to explain the whole thing to my boss, because you don’t get to say something like that and then say, “Oh, nothing”). First, I was excited because Christopher Meloni is totally rad (if you somehow have not seen Wet Hot American Summer, what is wrong with you?). Second, I was even more excited that Ice T had seen my comic and apparently liked it; I had assumed that if he ever saw my comic, he’d tell me to eat a hot bowl of dicks. (Thanks, Ice T, for not telling me to do that! Because I would have done it, out of respect. Respect and fear.)

Part of me wondered if the email was a prank, but I realized that if it were a prank, it was a very strange one – after all, if the guy was an impostor, all I’d be doing is sending signed copies of the comic to a stranger. But when the assistant replied with an address, I Googled it, and sure enough, it was the SVU production office. Now, again, it could have been a prank, but at the very worst, I was simply sending Christopher Meloni some comics that he wasn’t expecting. No real harm done.

So, I sent off the signed copies. Today, I received this in my inbox:

HOLY SHIT, 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.

  7. This is absolutely amazing. I interviewed Neal Baer a couple of years ago, and that used to be my claim to fame.
    Now it will have to be that I read the comic of a rad gal whose comic is framed in his office.

    We bow down to your SVU/comic prowress!

  31. Forest says:

    Ha ha ha, I just doubled over with laughter and whacked my head on my macbook in the middle of a very tame cafe. It was like I was possessed by some spasming cackling devil for a few seconds!!!

    It may well be the coolest thing that has EVER happened.

  32. gigi says:

    Wow. Ice T liked your comic. He and Munch are my favourite SVU duo.

  34. Maryann says:

    I love this!!!!

  35. Cora says:

    You’re not the only who gets responded by cool people. Damon Linker answered me, because I translated a text he wrote into portuguese. He said “thank you very much”. Already got the frame.

  36. Kris Miller says:

    GAAAAH!!!!! Okay, this is the first time I’ve ever commented. Heck, I only stumbled upon your comic an hour or so ago. :D ANyhoo, THIS IS THE GREATEST THING TO EVER HAPPEN TO ANYBODY EVERRRRR!!!! I <3 you. Well done!

  37. Ashley B says:

    Omg! That’s awesome! … if you don’t mind could you provide what the address to SVU productions is so I could send them a letter or something?

  38. Bruna Paiva says:

    That’s amazing. Chris Meloni is definitely my favourite actor. I wish I could meet him someday, but I don’t think that will ever happen. :'( And I don’t think that Law & Order SVU will be the same without him.
    Ps.: I love your comics!

    This is a cool reminder that some celebrities are more or less like regular people: doing what they hope is a good job and being thrilled to see that someone actually appreciates it.

  42. cornfreejuly says:
