Josh Green: Let’s talk about Kate Spencer for a moment. What is it about her character that distinguishes her from most other heroes in comics?

Marc Andreyko: Her acceptance that sometimes the legal system fails and that there are bad-guys out there who don’t deserve to live. Often it seems indulgent, at best, and incompetent, at worst, when these heroes continually catch and send to the looney bin or prison, villains who only want to kill. They’re not gonna get better, so why risk them escaping? Again. And again.

"Rick Remender, who was the previous writer on Captain America, had been building towards this story of Hydra having infiltrated various institutions of government and various super teams. I thought that sounded like too big of a story. I drilled it down and thought, what if there’s just one very valuable Hydra plant? What if they’re looking for 100 people, but there’s just one? So I started asking, who’s the worst person it could possibly be?" - Nick Spencer

"If all this was was a cheap sales gimmick, it would've been announced weeks, if not months, beforehand. The twist was held back specifically and not spoiled in mass media to protect the story and the book. Marvel put the actual comic first here. I was very happy about that." - Nick Spencer

Now that it's been a month, here's a full third of the 30-page issue...

"We all went into it with the best of intentions and we were all very excited. It started out fun, and a neat challenge, but it became more and more trying as the series went on. As with Bedard, Palmiotti, Gray and Beechen, I had very little say. As time passed, we were promised a more prominent role, but the reality was we wound up having less and less to do with it." - Sean McKeever

"Almost every Green Lantern is going to be gone from the DC Universe. And In order to tell a good story I need to focus on a core group, otherwise, y’know, I’ve got hundreds and hundreds of characters. So, I am telling the story from the point of view of a smaller group of characters, but, yeah, every Green Lantern is gone and is lost, so to speak, and could potentially show up in the series." - Cullen Bunn

There's certainly a lot to be said about that Aquaman preview, but let's take a look at a sneak peek for Bunn's other new title he'll be working on: Green Lantern: Lost Army

"I consider it my Swamp Thing Lord of the Rings, almost. The battles that I have planned are going to have my artists yelling at me, but they're going to be huge." -- Charles Soule

"The idea that one machine is better than another machine is something that isn't really part of [the machine kingdom's] worldview. Every machine has a purpose. The only machine that's not useful is a broken machine. As long as a machine works — you know, a screwdriver is just as important as a supercomputer.

"So the idea that there would be one machine or avatar that would be controlling everything just doesn't make sense to them."

"So the sort of big, sort of meta thread throughout my whole run of Swamp Thing has been a past/present/future theme. So the first arc, dealth with ST just getting the job, learn everything real fast, and getting advice from The Parliment of Trees (a sort of advisory body for the The Green’s current Avatar) and at the end of that arc he realizes… I’ll do it on my own. He fires his advisors and then we moved onto the second arc. Now the second has been about the present. Defining, for Alec Holland, what his run as Avatar is going to be. That’s also been, for me as the writer, what I’ve been talking about too. So the first arc was me thinking about all the amazing guys and stories that have come before: Alan Moore, Scott Snyder, Dysart, Brian K. Vaughn, Grant Morrison, Mark Millar. Everyone you can think of. So the second arc has been about me saying, okay this is the kind of world-building and mythology building that I’m about as the writer of Swamp Thing, and now we’re moving into the third arc, which is the future." -- Charles Soule
