"These 'ideas' are not ideas at all. Ideas bring life to these legends and extend/renew their freshness. Chopping off Aquaman’s hand did nothing for Aquaman, marrying off Clark Kent did nothing for Superman. They sold some comic books, but these are dead ideas in that they lead to dead ends. Marvel *completely* misinterpreted and distorted Spider-Man vs. Wolverine to use it as justification to marry Pete and MJ, when the point of that story was the *exact* opposite: why theirs would be a dysfunctional and unsustainable relationship. Years later, Marvel did it again, completely missing the entire point of my BP/Storm flirtation–the unconsummated love since childhood–and married them off. No offense to the writer, but it was a dead idea in that all it did was build a dead end to T’Challa’s future and make him less interesting. Having Batman run around with an un-dead 10-year old violates everything Batman is about." - Christopher J. Priest

'Old Man Logan' is considered to be a magnum opus of sorts for Wolverine to the point that Hugh Jackman has said he'd like to adapt it someday. It takes place in a dystopian future in which the villains have won and Wolverine has refused to pop his claws.

Warning: This is pretty gory.

'Basically, just think of "Wolverines" as a huge, weird, bloody Saturday morning cartoon in which anyone can appear, and you'll get the idea.' - Charles Soule

"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
