"I already know why the Grinch stole Christmas: he's a jerk, and his story wouldn't be improved one iota by adding a series of flashbacks detailing the traumatic childhood that shrunk the Grinch's heart two sizes too small. I don't need his life story. I just need a villain to help drive the plot. Reggie Mantle is the Grinch of Riverdale. . . He serves the Archie Universe best as a noxious ass with as few redeeming qualities as possible, and if that seems unrealistic to you because you don't know anyone that self-centered, I humbly suggest that you are living a charmed life." -- Mark Waid

"We have a lot of supergeniuses in the Marvel universe, but very few of them are women. I really wanted to give the main Marvel universe a young woman who is tomorrow’s Tony Stark or Reed Richards—she has more of a biochemical bent. Tony’s an engineer, Reed is very technological, but [the Wasp] is a biochemist wizard." -- Mark Waid

"Us pulling out all the stops. Not being afraid to go crazy, not being afraid to break toys. There’s a whole new sense of pacing we’re playing with." -- Mark Waid

"Given the advantage of 20/20 hindsight, I can't imagine why anyone would ever actually put Aquaman on the team from the get-go, if he knew JLA would last another forty-plus years. Don't get me wrong, I like Artie just fine--but scratch me down on the long, long list of JLA writers whose greatest monthly struggle is giving him SOMETHING TO DO." -- Mark Waid

"I think the finished comic reads like a natural leap from what we were doing in DAREDEVIL, and yet feels completely different." -- Mark Waid

"Man, talk about the Archie equivalent of a Luthor/Brainiac team-up. Archie will absolutely not know what's hit him. And in the back half of our first year, the hits just keep coming." -- Mark Waid

"One of the hooks of ‘Hunter-Killer’ was always the notion that what we read in the newspapers and what we see reported to us is always just the tip of the iceberg, there’s always machinations on a global scale behind it that we don’t know. And if you’re not convinced there’s global machinations going on right now, with the economic crisis that’s happening, then you’ve got your head in the sand. I don’t mean to sound like I should be wearing a tin foil hat, I just mean it’s easy to be paranoid in this day and age given how out of control we seem to be of our own destiny."

"Hunter-Killer is grounded in the growing outrage we as a nation have against an increasingly corrupt administration, balanced against the idea that there really are people in charge 'up there' who do have a sense of morality and do want to do what's right. To that end, we're revealing the existence of a fourth, secret branch of the U.S. Government that's been in existence since colonial times: the 'Failsafe Branch,' charged with the responsibility of keeping our government in line. The old trope about 'black ops' stories is that 'there are some jobs too dirty for the government.' Yeah, well, anyone who's read a newspaper in the past few years is probably with me when I say, 'Really?' The Failsafe crew is out to change that image and make America the good guys again--even if they have to do it in secret."
