Some people have wondered who the new 'Spider-Girl' in Spiderverse is. She's Ashley Barton, also known as Spider-Bitch. She's the granddaughter of Spider-Man and daughter of Hawkeye from the alternate future in Mark Millar's 'Old Man Logan' arc.

Warning: There's one scene here that's pretty gory.

"I think both stories benefit from the separation. I did have a go at killing him, but my heart wasn't really in it, because it changed the theme of my story so much." -- Paul Cornell, on why he's not writing the upcoming DEATH OF...

"I'm pleased to be finishing my 25-issue story about Wolverine in the way it was intended, without having to bend it out of shape because my bosses decided to kill him." -- Paul Cornell

'In fact I remember when the Wolverine title first started decades ago, being in a comic shop and going "How on earth are they going to make that work?" Because he was the classic cool guy at the edge of the team that says one thing every few panels. Putting him at the centre of a book really didn’t seem to make much sense. I think this is a problem that lots of people have found. So I’ve sort of broken down that wall and got to the heart of him a bit.' -- Paul Cornell

"The period novel in the Marvel Universe feels most unusual for me, especially without a lot of satire. I did some period stuff in Journey Into Mystery and Uncanny X-Men, but I was broadly satirical. I did a whole issue of Uncanny about Dostoyevsky and it was a broad parody. This isn’t, it’s firmly in the setting." -- Kieron Gillen

'Really, I look at this as a singular statement of novelistic intent about a character who is iconic and important. To me it’s like “why did you need Dark Knight Returns?” This is a rare chance to do with a Marvel character something of singular emotional importance, to really try to do something like that.' -- Kieron Gillen

"Logan spends the majority of the issue in his cage. It struck me that a way to capture that claustrophobia would [be] to do the whole issue in an Alan-Moore-esque nine-panel grid. You can even imagine the grid as the bars of a cage, if you see what I mean." -- Kieron Gillen

"I love how [Madripoor] became a repository for everything mad and exotic, a kind of summation of foreign parts. I've made it madder than ever, with geography and even speech breaking down, as a result of various science fictional things that have happened there." -- Paul Cornell

"It’s sort of my midlife crisis played out through a superhero. I would never go this far because it sounds ridiculous, but I was thinking about him having prostate problems, because he’s got allergies, he’s got all of the awful small things that bedevil people. Almost every man before they are eighty will have some form of prostate trouble. I can’t think of anything more degrading and humiliating. The trouble is comic fans want their heroes to be invulnerable and strong, not have the weaknesses of flesh." -- Paul Cornell

'Imagine this conversation: "So, what's your name?" "Logan." "And your first name?" "I prefer not to use it." "But if you did?" "It's James." And that's that. The fact that he doesn't go by his original name is meaningful, and we'll get into that. And for those people who think that "but if you did?" should be followed by "snikt," oh grow up...' - Paul Cornell

"It takes place right around the time the German Schlieffen plan for winning that war was was made up. So we're on the cusp of what will be frankly a horrific century and what will civilization mean, then? An earlier draft of the story featured characters like Sigmund Freud and the Futurist movement. That was my original focus. All that stuff is sort of gone, and now I'm really focusing on the characters and what's important there, but in terms of themes, the idea of civilization and how violent it can be is a big part of this story." -- Kieron Gillen

"I've been busily blocking some folk who reacted to Wolverine with great annoyance. The ones who were impolite, that is. . . . I remember my own fan rage, as a teenager, and how it was genuinely an expression of love. But one should grow out of it." -- Paul Cornell on Twitter, about the book's new direction

"Season 2" of Cornell's Wolverine run commences. [personal profile] kojiro already posted a few pages; here are three more.

'I'm doing the wolf pack stuff a little bit more realistic than most people. It's based around pretty current research into how wolf packs work. I said Jack London was an influence, but his science in "Call of the Wild" was a bit iffy. In "White Fang" it was a little bit better, for the period, but still we know now that's not how wolves operate. Wolves, fundamentally, are family animals. A lot of our understanding about dominance comes from wolves in captivity, which is like trying to uncover how human society works by looking at prisons.' -- Kieron Gillen

"He's one of these super heroes who has actually had a character journey over his many decades of existence, and it's one that makes sense. Without his memories, he acted like a bit of a teenager. Now he knows who he is, and he's grown into this mature, responsible, tough guy." -- Paul Cornell

From Savage Wolverine #13,  the second part of a two-part story, dealing with the illegal trafficking in exotic animals, I find I'm torn, between featuring the guest appearance by visiting "Professor Ramsey" at the Jean Grey School. (Honestly, Americans will call ANYONE Professor, won't they?) and a rather diverting confrontation between Logan and Tyger Tiger as they debate the ethics of contraband.

Phil Jimenez is on art and Phil and Scott Lope (Apparently he'd be known to some as Host of Wild Animal Repo on Discovery Channel) on writing duties.
Savage is actually a pretty good adjective for this story )

"I love Chris Claremont's work in general, and he did so many great things with Wolverine, including the Miller mini-series, him in the sewers of the Hellfire Club, his tenderness with Jean. An undercurrent then was how fast Chris was having a character that initially came over as an angry teenager grow up. And these days, in such great runs as Wolverine and the X-Men, he's come full circle, the most responsible adult in the face of Cyclops' angry rebel." -- Paul Cornell

"I like to think of The Avengers as what [Wolverine] does when he's not in his own series. This is the central point for him. His own title is where big stuff should happen to him. That that hasn't always happened is just an accident of history, because he got his own title late. "The Death of Captain America" didn't happen in The Avengers." -- Paul Cornell
