"With Ms. Marvel, Moongirl, and the up-coming series, Mosaic, The Inhuman books are not relying on metaphorical stand-in for the purposes of diversity and representation, they’re utilizing a cast that is actually diverse and more fully representative. Likewise, All New Inhumans has maintained a hugely diverse cast, both in terms of ethnicity as well as gender, nationality, sexual identity, and even the disabled." - Tumblr

"The Inhumans don’t serve as an analogue for minority and oppressed groups the way that mutants often did. But to me — that’s not a bug in the system, that’s a feature. That territory is already well handled by the mutants. While All-New Inhumans is a team book, by the end of the first arc, you should see that the cast are on different paths as individuals. And we will see the ways they aim for very different things. It’s an opportunity to compare, contrast, and explore the way individuals around the world step up in a globalized era.

"Increasingly, the real world is filled with unique people embracing the power to change the world in all manner of ways. I see our book as exploring parallels to the opportunities, challenges, and risks that come with the spread of digital tools. People are embracing digital tools, platforms, and connections for good, bad, and the complicated space in between.

"So as new Inhumans become empowered around the world — will it turn them into the next Malala Yousafzai? Donald Trump? Edward Snowden? We live in a time when regular individuals can suddenly seize and leverage influence and power. It can pit them against their own society with massive and public results. To me, Inhumans provide an opportunity to explore more complex stories of identity — personal, cultural, national, and ideological — and the tension and friction between those." - James Asmus

"No one talks about these event comics years down the road unless they are a disaster, cost jobs, and crash the market. Just finished SW 8." - Jonathan Hickman

In 2001 Devils Due Productions (at the time publishing through Image and later on their own), acquired the license to publish GI Joe comics, and opted to continue where Larry Hama's marvel run left off (in addition to a Ultimates style reboot, and a new Transformers crossover continuity but those came later). Over their 7 year run they introduced a lot of new concepts, and characters.

Inevitably they also touched on some ground that Larry Hama later would with his own version of the post Marvel events, though in very different ways.

Sean Collins in both universes joins the GI Joe team: as Snake-eyes Ninja apprentice Kamakura in DDP, and as Throwdown in IDW, for example.

And in both universes Snake-eyes dies )

And I swear that'll be my last Joe related post for a while... probably.

"Deo, Caselli, Walker, Schitti, Yu have completely saved me many, many times. They were working out of order, from partial scripts, page after page without dialogue, never complaining, total pros… My point is this: Any of Avengers that you loved, that was THEM. Any of it that you hated, that was all ME." - Jonathan Hickman

"I'd like to do a New Mutants book, but that's not what Marvel is interested in, and to be frank, not where the money is for me." - Jonathan Hickman
