"Absolutely, Wonder Woman is a feminist icon. Throughout the course of her history, she has been a role model of strength and empowerment for young women, and today, those young women of the '60s and '70s are doctors and lawyers and executives for some of the world's biggest corporations. But I think that more importantly, Wonder Woman is a humanist and I would say that today, she is simply a symbol of equality and empowerment." - Meredith Finch

"I really wanted to say something about the fact that the Marvel U.’s premiere super-team are card-carrying members of the Establishment. The same establishment who let people sleep on the streets and don’t provide decent medical cover for malnourished kids. The same establishment who let the Third World starve."

"The Authority feels like a crusade to me at the moment. Superheroes have been useless for too long. Let’s make them mean something again. This is a poke at superheroes at both DC and Marvel. Why should they always fight for the status quo? Sometimes I’d just like to see what Lex Luthor could do for the world, you know?"

"TOKYO GHOST is a love story about Constable Led Dent and his sidekick Debbie Decay. They are the heavy hand of the law in the new Isles of Los Angeles, about seventy years from now. They work for the Flack World Corporation, which rules the city because they provide the entertainment and technology. This is how the leaders of the world are decided in the not too distant future."

"Like I said, it’s a kind of love letter to Blade Runner, Judge Dredd, Akira, RoboCop, that have that dystopic apocalyptic future that isn’t super unreasonable at this point and still have a good dollop of humor and makes fun of a lot stuff and makes fun of itself."

- Rick Remender

"The Courtyard was my attempt to write a story within the mythology of H.P. Lovecraft that did not try to regurgitate Lovecraft's style. It was an attempt to write a Lovecraftian story that was set in what was then the near future rather than in a Lovecraftian Era. As such, I thought it was a very successful story and it has always been a little favorite of mine in terms of my horror output."
--Alan Moore,

16 pages of 48 (Two issues; 8 each of 24). Trigger warning for gore.
