'"The only people who take a joke better than atheists are vegetarians," he said just back from the disastrous dinner party. Seriously, I thought my wife was going to kill me.' - Jonathan Hickman

"In 2008, I believe my initial pitch to William (Christensen, Avatar EIC) was a global power play between undercover metal bands, Harvard alums and Afro-French aristocrats, but he begged me to give him something he could actually sell, so I said, 'How about Zeus killing atheists?'" - Jonathan Hickman

AVENGERS #32 in an ORIGINAL SIN tie-in, but doesn't have much to do with ORIGINAL SIN. After that Watcher's eye knowledge bomb, Captain America remembers the Illuminati mind-wiped him. He goes after Tony with some Avengers, then the Time Gem appears and sends the group into the future. This happens twice, each time with some team members getting sent back to the present.

"It's probably Grant Morrison or Warren [Ellis]. I just love most stuff that they do. And I kinda think if I exist anywhere on the spectrum stylistically with the stuff I do, it's somewhere in between those two guys, with a healthy dash of books I read when I was a kid that I loved, like Keith Giffen's Legion of Super-Heroes stuff." - Jonathan Hickman

AVENGERS #31 ties into ORIGINAL SIN, without having much to do with ORIGINAL SIN. The Time Gem is sending a group of Avengers to the future. As before, they encounter a group of that time's Avengers who knew they were coming. This time, they are 422 years in the future. Captain America and Black Widow are gassed and grabbed by the "Avengers" while Thor, Hyperion and Starbrand are kept in a large clear box. (Thor can hold his breath a long time, while Hyperion and Starbrand don't need to breathe, even though Starbrand didn't know this.)

Cap's bad dreams. )

'New Avengers is the book I always wanted to write at Marvel. Tom [Brevoort] and I sat down a couple of years ago, and I talked to him about this concept — "What are the components of Jonathan Hickman's dream corporate comic book job?" This is that book that hits all those notes.' - Jonathan Hickman

"Marvel has pretty much the best artists in the business, so there’s just no demand for me to try anything. I’m sure at some point down the line if there’s a vanity project that I really, really want to do, I think I could weasel my way into that, but then you have to ask yourself, is that really smart? Is it smart to pour that kind of time and effort and devotion to a book at Marvel and you don’t own any of it?" - Jonathan Hickman

AVENGERS #30 is an ORIGINAL SIN crossover. In issue 29 Captain America remembered his mindwipe and that Tony Stark and the Illuminati were going to build a "world destroying" weapon to save Earth and all of Reality. Tony and a bunch of armors fought Cap and a group of Avengers. And then the Time Gem appeared and popped them all 48 years into the future, because Why Not?

'I have whiteboard next to me that I can turn and look at, and I have 23 books right now that I would like to do, that are not Batman meets Buckaroo Bonzai, not bullsh*t like that. It’s fully fleshed out. I don’t think I have an off-switch, and stuff just keeps popping up. So I don’t think any idea I have is precious or worth holding on to. I want to deliver a product every month. And sometimes I try to pack too much into an issue; I overwrite. But it comes from a good place.' - Jonathan Hickman

'Hickman has the long game down pat. When he first came into the Marvel offices, he had note books that were like the ones from 'Seven' and he'd say 'here's what we're gonna do' with that Texas drawl of his. It's phenomenal! He knew his last issue of "Fantastic Four" before he wrote his first.' - Mark Waid

"I think we do comics wrong in a lot of ways. Like I almost think that when Brian Bendis comes on a book, it should be Brian Michael Bendis’ Avengers, and then he does his 48 issues or whatever, his epic Avengers story, then he moves on to something else. His Fantastic Four story. They all have a beginning, middle and end, and that’s what we do. Here’s a bunch of X-Men books, and they’re all satisfying and not just blocks of trades." - Jonathan Hickman
