CBR: Following the announcement of the book, there was some response on social media expressing skepticism towards two white creators telling a story about the historical Black experience. How would you respond to that notion?

Mark Waid: That it's a fair point and a responsibility that we do not take moderately or without careful consideration and some measure of peer review. We'll have more to say about this as the release date nears, I'm sure -- although, ultimately, the story itself will have to stand or fall on its own...

'We've no intention of going "dark" or serving an adults-only audience. That's cheap, that's easy, and anyone can do it. Literally, any chimpanzee with a keyboard can write, "Issue One, Page One, Panel One: Establishing shot, the fetid boys' room of Riverdale High. Jughead pukes into a toilet, a heroin needle still dangling from his vein." Not interested.' -- Mark Waid

Newsarama: Marvel says this issue will incorporate a never before seen set of comics pages by Jack Kirby and Jim Steranko. Tell me about this, and how you're handling it.

Mark Waid:
I knew these pages existed--they were penciled by Kirby as his original pitch for what became S.H.I.E.L.D. and later inked by Jim Steranko as a try-out--and Tom Brevoort worked his magic to clear their use once I found a seamless way to work them into the narrative as a flashback. Now I get to say I worked “with” Jack and Jim. How cool is that? Neal Adams, you’re next.

"One of the only reasons I still hang on to FLASH is because I know beyond any shadow of a doubt that the moment I walk, the next guy's gonna drop a safe on Linda Park's head before my last voucher's been paid." -- Mark Waid, in another era

"A superhero is someone who, at some point or in some way, inspires hope or is the enemy of cynicism. Even if you bog it down with political allegory ... You still need to take the cynical out of it." - Mark Waid
