"Could Uber have been done in another way that was less likely to be enjoyed by those who it is explicitly against? Could the images of Nazis winning combat situations as part of Germany's re-emergence be minimized? I don't think so, not without sacrificing a large part of what makes Uber worth doing. . . . You have to do all you can to make imagery hit, and scare anyone with an ounce of human empathy. To do otherwise would be to reduce its power, and making worse art because you're worried about people who the book despises. Basically, I think that doing a book in 2013 about the horrors of Nazism couldn't be more appropriate or necessary." - Kieron Gillen
