Chicago Bears' Lance Briggs Names Pitt and Darkness as Favorite Comics
Briggs is seriously into comics
Lance Briggs has dreamt up a comic book character, a man named Marco Marciano — named after, of all people, his publicist.
The Chicago Bears linebacker doesn't sketch or draw or paint, but he knows plot. He's plotting his own comic book.
Briggs, who signed a 6-year, $36 million deal in 2008, laughs that he doesn't talk to his Bears about his favorite comics— Pitt, a human-alien hybrid, and The Darkness, about a power manifested on the 21st birthday of its owner.
