"One of the nice things about this particular group (X-23, Daken, Mystique, Sabretooth and Lady Deathstrike, plus a new character I can’t wait for people to meet) is that they don’t have to always act in a particularly heroic way – and it’s certainly not predictable. Deathstrike doesn’t solve problems the same way, say, Captain America would – and she doesn’t have to, either. It opens a lot of story possibilities I think Ray and I are having a great time with." - Charles Soule

'We're definitely not ignoring the fact that these people all have beef with each other, but we're also acknowledging that many of them have successfully worked together in the past. The truth is, very few super heroes or villains would ever be willing to be in the same room with any other hero or villain after everything they've all been through. I mean, Captain America almost beat Tony Stark to death at the end of "Civil War." The Hulk beat up pretty much everyone in the world during "World War Hulk." The Scarlet Witch destroyed a zillion mutants [during "House of M"]. And so on.

'You could write an entire story that was nothing but characters rehashing their various moments of good and bad history together, but that's not how people talk or act. I think it's best to use those moments really sparingly, where they have maximum impact, otherwise you're looking backward, not forward.' - Charles Soule

'We’re not looking at this as a typical “team” book. It’s more like a bunch of ego-driven, angry, deadly characters who get thrown together for reasons to be revealed.' - Charles Soule

I can't say I have an all from favourite writer be it in the comic medium or otherwise, but Larry Hama is certainly one of the ones who influenced me most from my childhood up till today, he's done so many great books, most famously GI Joe, though I believe his own favourite is Nth Man, and his Wolverine run is considered one of the best.


Larry Hama got his start in the comics industry as penciler, and he's done practically every other job the in the industry (he's also been an actor and is working on a crowd funded cyberpunk movie), but he moved to writing mostly because it had better pay per page, and he could produce more pages, per hour. He's very well known for his writing style; Hama always says he doesn't know what's going to happen on one page until he's finished the previous one... When people were speculating about that eye a while back, he went on record saying he wouldn't know what it was till he got there (I am not sure if he has got there yet, I'm a bit behind on my pull list).

Today for you we have: Star Wars, Bucky O'Hare, Wolverine, and a little, but not too much, GI Joe, as well as some excerpts from a very cool vampire E-Book that you should totally buy if you like vampires or urban fantasy at all. Read more... )

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.

'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
