"In old comics, like old sitcoms, it didn’t matter what happened — at the beginning of the next episode you’re back in the status quo. Alan was the first person to go, “You can’t actually do that.” If Superman existed, he would change the world. Miracleman, with almost infinite power, creates a utopia as best he can and sets himself up as a god."

- Neil Gaiman

"It’s 24 meets 2001, more or less, and it’s my first attempt at (and opportunity to do) a truly long-form serialized story." - Charles Soule

"The character, for some reason, really struck a chord with fans back when he was originally out. There are a lot of people who have really, really strong feelings about the character. So, we'll see how pissed off they get when I'm done with him (laughs)."

"Ten: trying to get past Time War guilt by sprinting along in this friendly, man of the people, happy go lucky guise that keeps shooting himself in the foot, because it's all still there underneath. Eleven: the boy professor, not guilty or embarrassed about anything, keen to bridge the angry gap between Ten and... Twelve: he's done with guilt, he wants to fix things, and now he feels he has license to, and doesn't have to be a happy fun relatable manic pixie dream Doctor to do it." -- Paul Cornell

"Battleworld and Warzones! feature stories that take place on Battleworld. And Last Days features stories about Marvel characters dealing with the end of the world. NONE of those apply to what we’re doing in SILVER SURFER. To play nice, we’re calling it Last Days...but it’s not. It’s really like an all-new fourth category...one that's almost indescribable and a little insane." -- Dan Slott

"The U.S.A. is the antagonist of this story, but Steve [Skroce] and I never wanted to portray them as two-dimensional, mustache-twirling villains." -- Brian K. Vaughan

"The structure of the book is really funky. The first issue basically the introduction of the Colonel and the big mystery of the book. Then the second issue is built to explain exactly who he and [Shurra] are, and what drives them. Then the third issue pulls the rug out from under everything by explaining the mystery…and then chaos ensues.

So, yes, you’re going to get what you're talking about, but it's also much, much more. I just think that readers are so savvy when it comes to how to deconstruct – or predict – what kind of story they are reading and what to expect.

I strongly believe that if you have to play with both the story structure and the way you deliver information if you're going to offer a book that delivers a punch.

It took over five months for the third issue of The Dying and The Dead to be finally released (no seriously), so... let's finally take a look at the second issue that was released back in Apri.

I'm not even entirely sure I'm joking there....

Midnighter #4 had a preview up now (Well, it's out today) and hitflix has an interview with writer Steve Orlando

Here's a snippet!

HF: Can we talk a little about the art style? Because as a lady I am very grateful for the sequence that is happening as the preview ends. It seems like with Grayson and Midnighter (among other characters), DC is starting to realize you can't just have cheesecake, but beefcake is also very welcome. Is that something you guys you specifically add in visually because of Midnighter's sexual orientation or is it just a natural outcropping of his personality?

STEVE: I think it's part of his personality. If you try to do it too much 'on purpose' it's not going to come off right. But yes, there are some fascinating things for fans of that type of content in MIDNIGHTER #4! But you know, we were also in Russia and it's a classic cultural thing that happens there. So the opportunity was there and I thought 'Why not do it?' Midnighter is a guy that doesn't care who he makes uncomfortable, he's going to say exactly what he thinks and exactly what he's feeling. 

You're right though. There are plenty of books that have a certain type of male gaze and it's exciting to update that. Tim Seeley and Tom King started it in Grayson and it's something I think is great. It's bold and unapologetic but it's fun. And it's an exciting friendly competition as Tim, Tom, and I try to outdo each other with flirtation and innuendo between Midnighter and Grayson!

Yay! :)

Well, Dick's propensity to elicit protective feelings in brooding older men has been noted too many times to even be coincidence any more.

Coffee and a sauna Mr Grayson? )
