"The end of the world is completely filtered through pop culture and entertainment right now. If you're going to do a story about that, you have to have a perspective on it or you have to be telling a story that is either different or unique or says something the others haven't." - Jonathan Hickman

I really wanted to post this page when the issue came out but I figured it would be posted in the main one. It hasn't, so here it is.

"If you face a mirror, turn the lights off, say 'direct market' three times, and then turn the lights back on you'll see sad face Moebius. If you face a mirror, turn the lights off, say 'decompression' three times, and then turn the lights back on you'll see me burning money." - Jonathan Hickman

"There's a tendency for people to complain about crossovers that come out of nowhere, but this is something that Jonathan Hickman has been working towards ever since Marvel NOW! It's like a hundred issues of comics, plus stuff from other books and stuff that's been foreshadowed all over the place. This is a really beautiful and intricately planned event. It's something you could only really do in a shared universe like this. I understand people who are worried about it shaking up other books, but this is a very cool thing to try to do. Plus, I've read the scripts and they're good! [Laughs] It's really Jonathan Hickman doing a major Marvel event. It's very much him, playing on an enormous stage." - Kieron Gillen

'Iron Man, as the "architect" of the Avengers Machine while the "New Avengers" stuff with the Illuminati was going on, has a lot to answer for. He's made a lot of terrible decisions. I don't think that means he's "bad" though. It's just that he was wrong. Flawed. Broken.' - Jonathan Hickman

"No one talks about these event comics years down the road unless they are a disaster, cost jobs, and crash the market. Just finished SW 8." - Jonathan Hickman

A page from AVENGERS #32, part of ORIGINAL SIN, had Captain America in the far future talking to Franklin Richards about the Incursions and how to stop them. And there is an image of a white Iron Man armor fighting a high-tech Captain America armor.

'My original chapter title for Secret Wars #1 was, "The Perfect Jumping Off Point." I was outvoted.' - Jonathan Hickman

"Oh, man….Working with Hickman was easy because he’s such a great writer. He’s also he’s an artist himself, so he knows how to extract the best out of the artists he’s working with." - Mike Deodato


While superboysprime tends to cover Hickman's Avengers work, I like to highlight just a specific scene myself from the last issue of New Avengers. It involves the origin of the Black Swans!

"East of West is also a book of big themes and big characters, something that's always nice.

But in its simplest, most distilled form, it's a love story that takes place at the end of the world.

"My problem is that AVENGERS is printed bigger than HICKMAN on the cover. Let's be real, it's not like the book's about the Avengers anyway." - Jonathan Hickman

"East of West is a story about that feeling we're experiencing collectively right now, as a society, that the world is in a bit of a death spiral. The tagline of the book is, "The things that divide us are stronger than the things that unite us." You know, the end times are imminent and we all hate each other too much to come together and solve our problems. Our final destination is imminent, and it is the Apocalypse." - Jonathan Hickman

"Deo, Caselli, Walker, Schitti, Yu have completely saved me many, many times. They were working out of order, from partial scripts, page after page without dialogue, never complaining, total pros… My point is this: Any of Avengers that you loved, that was THEM. Any of it that you hated, that was all ME." - Jonathan Hickman

Newsarama: You launch with a 60-page first issue -- that's a rarity in this day and age! What made you want to launch the story this way, and how long do you see the story running ultimately?

Jonathan Hickman: "Well, in addition to changing the method of how we're working, one of the ”'new rules” for both myself and my friends that I collaborate with is to not feel constrained by page counts this year.

Personally, I'm just so sick of writing everything in 20-page chunks. And, while I could be wrong, I think the market will accept a book with variable pricing that's $3.50 for 20-29 pages, and $3.99 for 30 pages and over.

Now, the first issue of The Dying and the Dead is the extreme version of that – 60 pages for $4.50 – and we won't – and can't – do that every month, but it does represent a hell of a deal at a buck-fifty per 20 pages.

As for how long it's running? Not sure, that really depends on Ryan's pacing, but it does end.
"


With the release of the second issue of The Dying and Dead coming tomorrow, let’s take a look at the first issue that was released back in January 2015 (two months between this and the next issue). Well actually, we’ll just look at a little bit of it.

Writer: Jonathan Hickman
Artist: Ryan Bodenheim
Colorist: Michael Garland
