"The stories are thematically united by the idea of identity, but not so much "secret" identity… more "personality" identity, who we want to be versus who we are from moment to moment.

The reason it's called American Alien is that the thing that's always interested me about Superman the least are his alien origins. I think they're important thematically, but ultimately what I like about him as a character is that he was someone who was "born" in the U.S.A. and has grown up wanting to be the best kind of person.

Each of the stories is him challenging himself — while being challenged — about what kind of person he is. They're less about becoming a superhero and more about becoming not-an-asshole.

In the final issue of Jonathan Hickman's Fantastic Four before it switched over to FF, the Thing is mourning the loss of a teammate. How does one of the world's strongest superheroes work out his anger?

Hopefully Mephisto isn't around when he gets to the bargaining stage )

"The writer said that he plays with story elements like this because he hates getting bored and tries to keep himself entertained with his own projects. He even does that with his Avengers work at Marvel, noting that the current storyline might seem like it's all plot and no character development, but that's because he's going to come back in the third act and cover those elements. "That's a stupid way to tell the story," Hickman said, but reiterated that he just wants to keep himself entertained." - From Jonathan Hickman's Personal East of West Panel

"Well, I like doing different things, so this has been a lot of fun in that it has a different visual and storytelling language. Obviously, a lot of credit goes to Nick for how he's making the ideas concrete." - Jonathan Hickman

"I said to Nick, "Hey, how would you feel about a space western." He said, "I like swords and dogs." I said, "What about murderous children." He said, "We need to address this eyeball issue."" - Jonathan Hickman

"The end of the world is completely filtered through pop culture and entertainment right now. If you're going to do a story about that, you have to have a perspective on it or you have to be telling a story that is either different or unique or says something the others haven't." - Jonathan Hickman

"East of West is also a book of big themes and big characters, something that's always nice.

But in its simplest, most distilled form, it's a love story that takes place at the end of the world.

"East of West is a story about that feeling we're experiencing collectively right now, as a society, that the world is in a bit of a death spiral. The tagline of the book is, "The things that divide us are stronger than the things that unite us." You know, the end times are imminent and we all hate each other too much to come together and solve our problems. Our final destination is imminent, and it is the Apocalypse." - Jonathan Hickman

FF #23

The FF as we have come to know them have come and gone, as this wraps up the last issue of the group and of the team as we know them, with a special emphasis on Franklin Richards, arguably the most powerful mortal in the 616. Older Franklin is teaching current Franklin the ins and outs of godhood, and making "one last tour of the field", as Future Franklin must leave.

The issue has a lot of stand out moments with Marvel-ous moments of mirth and wonder, but the true core of the Fantastic Four is, and always has been, why Reed Richards, Susan Richards, Johnny Storm and Benjamin Grimm and the people they love are the First Family of the Marvel Universe.

This DOOR... is more than it appears to be. )

Calvin and Hobbes.
Burt and Ernie.
Butch and Sundance.
Han and Cheweii.
Woody and Buzz.

Time to add one more pair of two the "great companions" list, as the Fantastic Four and FF clean up the big mess put together after these past few years of Hickman's amazing run (so far).


edit: I thought I had uploaded the correct pics. Fixed.
