"No joke, I tried to get [editor Jordan White] to push for a second printing of #1 with a gold foil logo. He didn't go for it." - Chris Sims

'I don't think I'd go as far as calling it a parody. I mean, we're definitely writing some jokes in there, and there are definitely funny bits, but that mostly comes from us just having a good time thinking about how much we loved (and love) those comics. I mean, you can't see Cable in "X-Cutioner's Song" growling about how he's going to go face Stryfe "Man to man and -- quite literally -- face to face!" without thinking it's kind of hilarious, right? That's the attitude we're going for.' - Chris Sims

"We've basically recreated X-Force in the image of the era. While I'm a huge fan of the original X-Force run, the New Mutant graduates always felt, to me, very '80s despite their radical upgrades. I wanted our version to really look like something that someone would create with hindsight. So what've we got? Basically, it's a team of Wolverines, y'know? It's all the mutants with pretty cool powers going into it -- with the exception of Angel... sorry -- who've decided to use gigantic guns and swords instead." - Chad Bowers

Sims: "Not gonna lie, Jean was probably the hardest one to write, for me at least. The '90s are such a weird time for her. So much of what we think about her character is stuff from the '80s, and in the '90s, she felt like she was still trying to redefine her character without the Phoenix. She didn't even have a codename! But then that kind of became the core of how we thought about her, and her struggle to get past this identity comes up pretty big in chapter 5."

Bowers: "Yeah, we both really like Jean, too, but it's sometimes hard to get around the fact that, in the 90s, she spends an awful lot of time just being Cyclops' fiancée. The show did her no favors, either, and if I'm not wrong -- correct me if I am, Chris -- but she's the only character who doesn't get a solo episode, which really hangs a light on what they thought about her at the time."
