"The story of Spider-Man is a person who, despite having a lot of problems he can barely manage, tries to be better because he knows he has to be. He’s our best self. It’s an indestructible concept, because it’s fundamentally honest." - Mike Costa

"As far as I’m concerned, I am writing the platonic ideal of super hero books here. If I can make each issue even half as fun as that concept sounds—and a fraction of the fun David makes it look—then I’ll be doing something really special." - Mike Costa

"Super hero comics emerged from a proud tradition of relentless optimism, unbridled imagination and—the part most often forgotten today—deep and abiding joy. And there is no more powerful joy-delivery system in super hero comics than Spider-Man." - Mike Costa

'He’s in a weird twilight zone where he’s too uncomplicated to have his own “Kraven’s Last Hunt” or “Death of Gwen Stacy,” but too big a name to have been included with the losers in the awesome SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN book. So I’ve decided to plant my flag here. For better or worse, I’m telling the ultimate Electro story.' - Mike Costa

"In issue #1, we visit the “Forever Yesterday” universe [from the original run of NEW WARRIORS], in which ancient Egypt was the power that colonized the world. I did hours of research, pouring over back-issues for reference, reading up about what various colors represented in Egyptian antiquity to build out the world, generally trying to look really deep and impressive. Then David comes in and brings so many ideas to the page, and develops them so effortlessly, that I enter into a shame-spiral, and retreat from friends and family while I question my value as a writer and a human being. Then I begin a research project on the next world I want to introduce and that is the punishing cycle of the professional writer.' - Mike Costa

"The story of Spider-Man is a person who, despite having a lot of problems he can barely manage, tries to be better because he knows he has to be. He’s our best self. It’s an indestructible concept, because it’s fundamentally honest. Like Shakespeare, it can be recast and restaged in countless ways because it’s unbreakable. There have been lots of Lears and a hundred Hamlets. Of course there billions of Spider-Men, there are billions of us." - Mike Costa
