"People make the case that Namor might be [first] because he was written slightly earlier, but in terms of actual Marvel comics, the very first character on the cover was the Human Torch, and I always thought he was treated with a little disrespect. I wanted to bring him back, treat him well and give him a personality, which I enjoy doing with the more obscure characters." -- James Robinson

"The center of this book is Jim Hammond; my goal is to bring everything I can to him, and make him a vibrant character you really love. He’s Marvel’s first superhero, and it’s time he stepped up into spotlight." -- James Robinson

'They're never going to call themselves the Invaders. There's never going to be a moment where Nick Fury is looking solemnly at his men and says, "This is not a mission any one else can do. Call the Invaders." It's just going to be fate and happenstance that keeps bringing these guys together.' -- James Robinson

'I had a good idea for it, but if I hadn't, or it was only the Invaders fighting Nazis, I probably wouldn't have done it, because I feel like it's been done before and I don't want to be known as just "The Golden Age Guy." It's a compliment in some ways, but it also pigeonholes me a little bit.' -- James Robinson

"In this saga that Leonard [Kirk] and I are telling, everything is there for a reason. Even the red costumes. All will be revealed." -- James Robinson

"It’s one of the things I’m proud of with Starman and I’m trying to do it here, where the O’Dares, Jack Knight, the Shade, everyone had their moment of emotional payoff. So, I’ve already got Bentley-23’s all worked out. I have a Christmas story worked out with Onome that will be both heartwarming and a nice payoff for her character. Wyatt Wingfoot, Scott Lang, Darla Deering, Dragon Man — I have moments for all of these characters." -- James Robinson

"I looked at the fact that there had been a couple of attempts to relaunch the Invaders relatively recently and they hadn’t been commercially successful. And there had been a lot of potential reasons for that, but the one trap I saw that I was determined not to fall into was the fact that they always go back to the same thing — the Invaders fighting Zemo or Strucker or sleeper robots that people don’t know about. All those tropes that we’ve seen over and over again with the Invaders." -- James Robinson, on his choice to avoid WWII villains

Amazing Spider-Man: Family Business is the latest book from Marvel's original graphic novel line, whose aim is to produce stand-alone, original stories (so never previously published as standard comics) by big name creators. (Ellis and McKone's Avengers: Endless Wartime, previously posted to these parts, was the first book of the line.) This one's 90 pages in all, so here's slightly fewer than 30 of them.



"This is more than a comic you'll read -- it's one you'll re-read. Not just a good Spidey story, but a great one!" - Dan Slott

"I probably won't ever return to Earth 2. Try my work at Marvel and Image. Frankly I think it's much better." -- James Robinson

In any incarnation of the Fantastic Four, under any writer, there will always be adventures. Always be exploring. Always some variant tale of Doom, the Negative Zone, Subterranea, Galactus, or the Skrulls.

And there will always be the underlying theme of family. After the great character cast expansions we've seen under Kirkman and Fraction, I was a little nervous about the latest reboot. What would happen to the Richards kids? To the rest of the Future Foundation? To Bentley, the Moloids, and Dragon Man?

Mister Robinson, to you I say... you had my curiosity. Now you have my attention.
