"You know how on True Detective Matthew McConaughey’s character, [Rustin] Cohle, says humans need to stop reproducing because we’re just creating more horror in the universe? All that material comes from The Conspiracy Against the Human Race, a philosophical treatise on pessimism by Thomas Ligotti, the horror writer who suffers from anhedonia. Ligotti, along with Ray Brassier, a Scottish philosopher who wrote a book called Nihil Unbound: Enlightenment and Extinction, is at the popular forefront of this new wave of pessimist, nihilist, or “speculative realist” thinking. Annihilator was heavily informed by these writers, and a lot of my interest in their work bled off into Nameless in a different way. It’s our contribution to the New Bleak, and we’re very excited about it. I wanted to know if my own optimism could stand up to the bleakest, most pessimistic, most corrosive ideas about the pointlessness and horror of being alive and self-aware in an entropic universe. I like dredging the darkest, sludgiest part of the well for misery that I can transform into poetry and humor, you know?"

"I think, like everyone else, I had grown out of the X-Men because I was twenty-two years old or whatever when [Morrison's run] came out. I had fallen out of the X-Men when I started getting girlfriends, or went to college. That run definitely brought me back into it. It reminded me how much I loved that stuff. It was everything you loved but cranked up to eleven." - Chris Burnham

"One of my initial thoughts was having Beast's secondary mutation really amp up his body dysmorphia problems and actually change him into a woman. But there wasn't really room for that -- if we were going to pull something like that off, it would need to be a full story and not just a zany plot point." - Chris Burnham

"We’ve been dealing with mutants being the oppressed minority for 50 years. It’s great to tell E IS FOR EXTINCTION as the complete opposite: a utopian mutant world." - Chris Burnham
