"The structure of the book is really funky. The first issue basically the introduction of the Colonel and the big mystery of the book. Then the second issue is built to explain exactly who he and [Shurra] are, and what drives them. Then the third issue pulls the rug out from under everything by explaining the mystery…and then chaos ensues.

So, yes, you’re going to get what you're talking about, but it's also much, much more. I just think that readers are so savvy when it comes to how to deconstruct – or predict – what kind of story they are reading and what to expect.

I strongly believe that if you have to play with both the story structure and the way you deliver information if you're going to offer a book that delivers a punch.

"I’d always wanted to do a Western, but years ago I had an editor tell me that artists hate drawing horses and that was why it was so hard to get a Western going. He was probably kidding, but I believed him.

Newsflash: I’m an idiot.

"I read the original Hellblazer comics with great interest. They inspired me because they were highly entertaining, unafraid of getting dark, and unashamedly political. As a depressed, suicidal teenager, I sometimes identified with John Constantine's depressed, near-suicidal existence. He knew more about the nature of the world than most people around him — and growing up in the highly industrialized and poor corner of the Czech Republic, coming from a family that was falling apart due to decades of damage and lies, in a landscape equally beautiful and poisoned, I felt very much the same. I also liked Constantine's stoicism in the face of danger, and it inspired me to adopt a similar attitude. The ultimate secret of magic, after all, is that anyone can do it."

"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

""Shutter" is something that's been percolating in the back of my head for a really long time. Wanting to take what I loved so much about the 20th Century Globe Trotting Adventurer popularized by Indiana Jones, Doc Savage, Corto Maltese and Tintin and take it into a different context, reflecting more of the 21st Century and where it's going." - Joe Keatinge

"Nearly a decade ago, Emily Aster sold half her personality for the power to rule a coven of phonomancers. I’m sure nothing could go horribly, monstrously wrong now. In a world where Music is Magic, a song can save or ruin your life. In THE IMMATERIAL GIRL, we discover what a video can do."

"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
