"I have a tendency to grab onto a theme and work it a bunch of ways before moving on to something else. There might be other small things I've done playing with the idea of 'endings or death,' but the three projects I've mainly been working on for the last couple years all play with the same idea."

"Avengers is about death on an oppressive and epic scale, East of West is about a literal, mythic Death, and The Dying and The Dead is about one man’s personal crusade to either escape or overcome it." - Jonathan Hickman

"Before being at Marvel, I hadn't done any long format work and I'm discovering now that I have a really odd rhythm to my work. If writing serialized monthly superhero fiction is conflict, then it seems that most books are either trench warfare or some acrobatic, high-paced dogfight, it feels like I'm doing some sort of asymmetrical battle as both the insurgents and the nation-state. Okay, I'm sure that sounds like gibberish, but that's as clear as it gets in here." - Jonathan Hickman

"In any story, characters… plot… these things are primary and must be done well for a book to be considered successful, but I think that the stories that are really, really special have themes that resonate." - Jonathan Hickman

"I think it's okay for the Marvel Universe to have a functional family. I'm doubly okay with me writing that, and even more okay with it being the Fantastic Four." - Jonathan Hickman

'I was looking at my outlines last night and it appears I've done a terrible thing. I've done a bad job, you might say, in that you actually find out some of the answers to some of the biggest mysteries that are out there hanging in "New Avengers" in "Avengers" issues. And some of the big mysteries in "Avengers" are answered in future "New Avengers" issues. Because as the stories get intertwined you find out that the solutions are actually on the other side. So people are going to miss stuff if they're not reading both books. I'm not obviously asking them to read both, but I did in fact screw them if they're not.' - Jonathan Hickman

"I'd like to do a New Mutants book, but that's not what Marvel is interested in, and to be frank, not where the money is for me." - Jonathan Hickman

"If you look at your big time villains in the Marvel Universe; your Dooms, your Magnetos and even Galactus, someone will always write a redemptive story for that character. Someone will always write the story where the guy goes over the cliff and kills an entire town. It just depends on what your take on the character is. My take is that Doom is incredibly egocentric and an inherently flawed megalomaniac, but there's a bit of nobility there and for some reason he cares for certain things a whole lot." - Jonathan Hickman

The full issue is 31 pages, so this falls within the page cap )
