Hey, this is unrelated to the post but has Comixology been a COMPLETE unholy mess for anyone else since they switched to that new reader? It fails to load the pages so often that I've had to, like, reload the reader three dozen times to make my way through all the pages of a standard 20 page comic. I just want to know if the problem isn't only on my end.

That out of he way, onto the post...

"That's kind of the theme of this series. No more A-lists, no more D-lists. No more looking down from towers and mansions." -- Al Ewing

"Shockworker was one of my favorite parts of the original story idea. File him next to all the other poetic and sad robots I seem to populate the MU with. He's really charming and very sad." -- Kieron Gillen

(Note: Keep in mind that this is one of Marvel's online Infinite Comics. They're designed to be read on a digital device, with each page replacing the previous one on your screen. When the pages are instead side-by-side, stacked vertically, like in this post, it can make for an awkward reading experience. Also, the format makes page count a tricky matter, but if you count each "slide" as a page, then this is under 1/3 of the issue.)

"Followers of the Iron Man run may be especially interested, as this is actually part of the larger design of my [main book] Iron Man run. Come the end, we’ll be working elements into my series. Also! Has my new fave villain." -- Kieron Gillen

'It's funny — people say that Comic Tony is so much more responsible than Movie Tony to me, and I find myself thinking, "Well, which one is managing an adult relationship with a serious woman?" I'm not saying they're wrong, but I see the differences as more complicated. And that, for me, is a useful device to make stories that are both interesting and accessible." -- Kieron Gillen

"What most appealed was a story about technology and romance, and a man who is both a futurist and a capitalist and what happens when there's a conflict between the two." -- Kieron Gillen

'I wanted to give Billy [Kaplan] his own mythology; he’s never going to be the Sorcerer Supreme but he might be the Demiurge . . . I wanted to give them a future, because in the long run, all tightly-woven Legacy Characters without their own story or point of their own other than “kids or stated successor of major hero” are pretty much doomed, or at least limited enormously.' -- Kieron Gillen

"It's about the Moon. The romance and symbolism of the Moon as much as the actual heavenly body, this place that we used to go to and don't anymore, this symbol of the imagination and the unconscious that we actually walked on. And I suppose it's about progress, and the shape progress takes." -- Al Ewing

"I suppose the one thing I find most fascinating is that he's not really a good guy. Tony's kind of a failed human, and has a history of making catastrophically bad decisions. He's a horrifically self-destructive man who's made some terrible mistakes in his life and now has to live with them." - Al Ewing

"Eli is a new character and he's my tribute to Warren Ellis who created Extremis -- the character is heavily inspired by him. Warren is comics' great futurist, and if he had gotten together with a gang of criminals and scientists in an attempt to develop the future, he would have been like Eli." -- Kieron Gillen

'I feel bad that nobody's noticed [old Luke Cage supporting character] Dave is back. Dave was the Iron Fist before Iron Fist! I was so happy when I found out he hadn't been killed -- that's something you end up running into a lot writing superhero comics. You think, "Oh, that'd be a good villain/hero/supporting cast member" and then you look them up and they're dead.' -- Al Ewing

'The core of the story was actually my original idea for my "Iron Man" run, which I've talked about before; fundamentally, "Deadwood" on the Moon, done in a hard science fiction way. However, when the idea of Tony as a Guardian of the Galaxy turned up, I quietly retired it, as it didn't fit into the larger space-superhero adventure aesthetic . . . However, when the idea of doing an Infinite Comic co-written by Al [Ewing] came up, it seemed a natural fit.' -- Kieron Gillen

"Robots are pretty much a great metaphor to talk about almost everything in 21st century society. Robots are the new zombies, probably. [New robot character] Udarnik is a little different to any of my other core ideas, I suspect. At the core, he came from the place of me that loved WALL-E, Silent Running and the iconography of Cosmonauts." -- Kieron Gillen
