'Put it like this: who doesn’t love “The Godfather”? My model for the series is “House of Cards.” A man in a position of power who is slighted and turns to tactics that he wouldn't have really considered before.' -- Kieron Gillen

"The problem with the Empire is that by definition and design it's faceless. There's the Stormtrooper uniform and that kind of fascistic grip of it all, and that means there's a lot of dudes that aren’t necessarily interesting to read about. [Laughs] One of those dudes is quite cool, but not as everyone in your cast. One of the joys of this book though is that we can bring in sketchier characters. You get those bounty hunter guys, and you get people who are just as ethically questionable and evil, but can act in a different way." - Kieron Gillen

"To the [characters] in STAR WARS, Vader is this inescapable force who is almost beyond their comprehension. To Vader, chasing them is what he does on Tuesday, and he’s got a world of pain to deal with in the rest of the week." -- Kieron Gillen

I quite liked the latest issue of Darth Vader, which I picked up today.  I thought I'd share my favorite moment from it:

'At the end of “A New Hope,” we see the aforementioned disaster. At the start of “Empire,” he's acting as if he’s more in control than he ever was in the first film. The journey between the two—what happened? That’s the challenge.' -- Kieron Gillen

"It reminded me of this interview I had a chance to have with William Gibson but I turned it down because I hadn't read his last couple of books and I was sure there were other people who could do it better than me. With Vader, I sat down and was sure that I was the person who could write this because at Marvel I'm the guy you get to write bad guys. That's what I do. There's no-one else as evil as I am." -- Kieron Gillen

'Star Wars is enough to drive any fair-minded observer of popular culture insane. I sit in horror, watching otherwise sane-minded individuals wander out of the latest cinematic monstrosity cursing George Lucas' name only to - a handful of months later - go out and buy the DVD anyway "for the extras". You scratch your head at the AintItFatFacedAmericansInTheirBasements somehow claiming the original trilogy were the high points of cinematic history, when only Empire stands up as anything more than campy high adventure and Jedi is covered in a frankly embarrassing Ewokitis. And you grit your teeth as reviewer after reviewer adds twenty percent to a game's score because it's got Stormtroopers and the real Lightsabre sound effects. In short: I hate Star Wars.' - Kieron Gillen

"Al [Ewing]'s one of the best of the current crop of 2000AD writers, along with Si Spurrier and Rob Williams – a British sensibility not a million miles from my own." -- Garth Ennis

'I have whiteboard next to me that I can turn and look at, and I have 23 books right now that I would like to do, that are not Batman meets Buckaroo Bonzai, not bullsh*t like that. It’s fully fleshed out. I don’t think I have an off-switch, and stuff just keeps popping up. So I don’t think any idea I have is precious or worth holding on to. I want to deliver a product every month. And sometimes I try to pack too much into an issue; I overwrite. But it comes from a good place.' - Jonathan Hickman

'Hickman has the long game down pat. When he first came into the Marvel offices, he had note books that were like the ones from 'Seven' and he'd say 'here's what we're gonna do' with that Texas drawl of his. It's phenomenal! He knew his last issue of "Fantastic Four" before he wrote his first.' - Mark Waid

ComicBookResources has the new title, as Nathan Dayspring Summers returns to action, and has his own squad behind him again.

Most of us will not be happy about it.

Where is the science?  )
