AMAZING HEROES: Is he still going to be the bastard black sheep of the Marvel Family? The angel helper? Still torpedoed by Nazis, and so on?

GRANT MORRISON: No. We've disposed of the incestuous Marvel Family thing. He still gets torpedoed, though. In more ways than one ... The first one's already being drawn by Duncan Fegredo. It was fun to do, as it was a different way of writing for me. I'd just read Ulysses, and I thought I'd do this stream of consciousness thing.

Obviously it's not Joyce, but you know ... we have our sad pretentions. The dark secret of Mister Keeper is revealed in #2. What I wanted to do was do a horror comic. I mean, everybody else in Britain has done one, so I thought it was about time I did one using all the occult I'm involved in. It's all really rather unpleasant. We wanted to do something with no moral values in it at all. He's a wonderful nihilistic character.

To broadly paraphrase: “I understand how I felt as a teenager better when I was 36 than when I was 16.” I wouldn’t go that far—and, I stress, I paraphrase that, from memory—but if you don’t other your past and remember those emotions, you can write them. One good thing about getting older is that you can write from experience about more stages of human life. -- Kieron Gillen

"Steve Niles, the writer of 30 Days of Night, gave me the description. He wanted the vampires to be eating machines. In the comic books we fleshed them out a bit more over time and gave them more back history, but in the initial story they were treated as a force of nature.

I was vaguely scientific about that initial description and one of the best eating machines on the planet is the shark. That is why they have shark-like teeth for eating the meat. They eat everything. These guys are primal; visceral. The old vampire legends were not about delicate, emo people. They were quite savage and nasty so I made our vampires savage and nasty. They also have black nocturnal eyes so they can function in the dark and I gave them quite long claws as well. They are half classic and half primal animal. I don't do any of the more romanticised, emo, frilly shirt types. Vampires are the Star Trek of the horror genre. They have just been done in so many ways." -- Ben Templesmith
