"The classic revisionist superhero saga that predates Watchmen and The Dark Knight Returns! Rick Veitch's ground-breaking series has been called the last word on superheroes. It is a world-spanning, continent-crushing, over-the-top adventure story that brings the United States and Russia to the brink of annihilation... from both nuclear warheads and crazed superheroes-run-amok!"

After Thundra's Guide to Picking up Men and Hyperion's Guide to Speed Dating, I give you Hyperion's Guide to Flirting with a waitress.
The first two extracts come from the excellent Hyperion: Daddy Issues mini series (which features exactly none of Hyperion's own children from Hickvengers) by Chuck Wendig, Ario Anindito and Nik Virella, while this is from the post-Secret Wars Squadron Supreme series by James Robinson and Leonard Kirk. Four pages from Squadron Supreme (2015-2017) #7

If you're tight on time and need to find love in a hurry, just remember Hyperion's Three Rules for Finding Love

  • Truth without compromise

  • Thought without error

  • All things for the betterment of the whole

This is from the time that Hyperion is discovering America by driving a truck across the country, with hilarious results, rather than co-parenting a bunch of genetically superior zebra children with Thor in the Savage Land.

VULTURE: Well, we’re experiencing a resurgence of two things that play into The One: A nuclear threat and a fixation on superheroes. How do you explain the current superhero boom across all media?

RICK VEITCH: Well, you could tie it to a lot of things. One of the things is the rise of nationalism and fascist thought. The superhero is kind of like a fascist art form. He is a fascist fantasy. His roots are in Nietzsche’s superman, which the Nazis used as a mighty propaganda tool back in the day. It breaks my heart that these issues are still being struggled with today. Even more so.

"Early 2001, they told Pat that they were doing an article about 80's nostalgia, and told him he would be perfect to draw a Transformers comic.

And it began."

"I must admit that it was the Farm as a whole that sold the Fables concept to me. I had been longing to draw more organic environments and especially wildlife, and suddenly here was a story arc full of just that (plus a couple of beautiful woman to draw which is never a bad thing to draw). Thinking I would only be able to draw Fables for one story arc, Bill and Shelly offered me a choice, Legends in Exile or Animal Farm. I picked Animal Farm...and loved it so much I couldn't bear to leave! If only I'd know!"

"We got totally lambasted when the first chapter, issue #42, came out, where we reveal Panther has been spying on Iron Man all along, and where Panther decks Iron Man without even working up a sweat. IRON MAN fans HATED us and HATED Brevoort for allowing their beloved armored avenger -- whom they really prefer to be unbeatable (yawn) on any conceivable level -- to be kissing the mat after only a page and a half..." - Christopher Priest
