"So really, right now, we may not be as close to this as we were when Bush was president, but it can happen any time. We’re going to be fluctuating back and forth, and frankly if Obama did what happens in “Evil Empire?” It could happen. I’m not going to hop on conservatives here just because I have a lot of left wing beliefs. I think we’re just as close to this, perhaps incrementally not as close as we were five or ten years ago, but it could happen at any point. You don’t know who is going to be the next president, you know? And that’s the reality. We fluctuate between the left and the right back and forth, and the tipping point that makes the Evil Empire happen, this specific event that is the turning point? It’s a completely human thing that happens; it’s not a fantastical event or terrorist attack, it’s just something that could happen to anyone, and that’s what gets the ball rolling with the evolution of the Empire. So it could happen to Obama, it could happen to anyone. You don’t have to be a radical conservative to fall prey to what happens in the book."

"I know it's a very far-fetched scenario and that's why it's an entertaining comic book. At the same time, I'm the type of guy who feels that insecurity on these tiny levels, even when I see a guy like -- I hate to pick on him -- but Kanye West. This is a guy who's extremely talented and a great musician, but his ego is insane. He's in this position of power culturally where a lot of people are listening to what he's saying. Every time I see someone like that and they say disappointing, ego-maniacal or amoral stuff, it kind of scares me. Or if I'm at a party and I see some guy being picked on passive-aggressively because someone else wants to feel cool. These things scare and disturb me. They make me wonder about the nature of our society and if humans really just want to fuck each other over. Or, at least, a lot of us. If we were given the freedom to just do whatever the hell we wanted and be dicks and kill and rape and maim, would we do it? I think the sad part is that a lot of people would."

"I was inspired a lot by, and I know this is a controversial book for some readers, but “Crossed,” the Avatar book? I think it hits home for so many people, considering how freaking crazy it is, is that beyond the initial outbreak in that we don’t really know why everyone has turned into sociopaths or depraved deviants, everything that happens around it is super realistic. When someone is disembowled, it looks really real and it feels threatening. That actually figured into my thoughts; what if you take away the component of “this couldn’t happen because there is no plague-like outbreak,” what if it was just people doing it because they wanted to do it? Because people are fucked up?"

"The basic idea is that we're doing the prequel to every genre movie ever that takes place in a post-apocalyptic world, where an evil empire is ruling the world: "The Matrix," "Star Wars," even if you want to expand a little bit, there's "The Walking Dead," where there's some kind of supernatural force involved. There's always something that has taken over the world, some kind of dark leader, and a smarmy rebel has to come and save the world. This is usually where a lot of movies and comic books start. We thought, "How can you tell the story of our modern society evolving into this megalomaniacal, post-apocalyptic, evil empire?"

...there was another TV series heroine who was not afraid to be a badass, and at the same time embrace her feminine side.

Of course, her giant pink robot pteradactyl probably helped...

"I’m a huge John Carpenter fan. I’ve consumed all of his films, and Big Trouble was one of the formative movies of my youth. I don’t take much write-for-hire these days, unless I know I can knock it out of the park."
