"I love both horror and science fiction, and Warren [Ellis] has managed to combine both of them into something that is both disturbing and rewarding in a far-ranging way. My goal is to present the images he calls for, while at the same time finding visual themes and stylistic flourishes that can underpin and echo the story's intent. As for what it's about, I've been telling people it has the flavor of The Prisoner, but with much heavier horror elements. Maybe Jacob's Ladder by way of Solaris?" -- Phil Hester

"Yes, the Bond of the books was casually sexist, racist, homophobic and a dozen other unpleasant things, including, let's not forget, a murderer. In my Bond story, he is clearly a man who respects competent colleagues regardless of any other value, because, yes, it's the 21st Century -- but I would also suggest that someone can be a misanthrope without being a bigot." -- Warren Ellis

"I lifted that classic kind of American horror film structure, where two attractive young people go somewhere to have sex and are punished for it by their world turning to shit. Patton Oswalt said it best: ‘There’s nothing in the woods! Gimme some of that pussy! CHOP!’ Simple structure, simple goal– get through the town full of zombies to jump in the boat and escape– and the fun is in what happens to them along the way."

"Honestly, I think the set-up is so simple, but the character runs so deep and strange, that I just hope other people are as fascinated by the weird little bastard as I am. He does incredibly altruistic things for really kind of screwed-up deeply personal reasons, and does them in such a violent and misanthropic way that he might actually be the villain of the piece." -- Warren Ellis

'I landed on this while reading Umberto Eco’s last book, “Numero Zero,” which reminded me of Gladio and the ‘stay-behind’ forces embedded in Italy after World War II. I’d been looking for a way to introduce asymmetrical warfare and modern combat conditions into Bond without being too clunky about it — AQ, Daesh, the movement of money, all the stuff that didn’t necessarily pertain when Fleming was writing. Just as “Vargr” was about drugs, a subject Fleming barely grazed.' -- Warren Ellis

"I tend to think of the ‘Bond Girl’ thing as a movie thing, and also kind of dismissive and bullshit. There is usually a female presence in the books, of course, because that’s the nature of Bond himself. 'Eidolon' has more female characters than 'Vargr,' but I don’t conceive of them as ‘Bond Girls’ per se." -- Warren Ellis

"There’s clearly something wrong with the man. It’s one reason why the Bond of the book is so compelling, but it’s also the action of a man in love with death, inviting the potential of his own." -- Warren Ellis
