If I had to invite anyone over for a dinner party, I would invite a hero of our time , Nelson Mandela. Just a brief story about him, Mandela was a fighter instead of bowing down to an unjust system of government, he became a lifelong warrior in the battle to free South Africa. He started out as a leader of an underground political movement against the apertheid regime. Therefore, nothing better than inviting a leader for a dinner party .

Needless to say, a dinner party must be a gastronomic delight. But it must also have some dash and originality about its presentation, and there should be no "clichés" anywhere , in the menu, in the recipe or, we hope, in the conversation. Every hostess owes it to herself and her reputation as an “operator” to give at least one “all-out” dinner party every winter. I mean a kind of “no-holds-barred” performance, where you forget the cost, the trouble, or whatever you usually use as the excuse for not entertaining in the grand manner.

I would have a fish course first, one preferably that could “wait.” So I conjured up a platter of lobster medallions and Belgian endive, simple to prepare, delicious when chilled. I could present it when I had everything under control. Let’s call this "Shellfish Elegante".

I would invite Eiichiro Oda, Kozaki Yusuke, Jim Lee, Bruce Timm, Nate Maurer, and Nargyle to join and dine with us. All of the previously mentioned are artists that I do admire. For example Oda created a personal favorite comic of mine, One Piece, Bruce Timm had a great hand in developing the DC animated universe as well as that he has a very distinct art style, Nate Maurer draws and writes a fantastic and hilarious fan comic of a animated show that I love and Nargyle has a very unique and flowing art style. I personally would do dinner, in order to get to know each other and spend time at a art studio. I would not know were to go for dinner, there are a few options I can think of though. I can’t really say how will this meeting would go down, but judging on there personalities that I have seen, I do think they would get along.
