To do something radically new and bring in new readers. To push nostalgia away as always, because nostalgia is the waiting room for death. -- Paul Cornell

It was Jimmy Carter who went on record as having seen a UFO, but I like to think that FDR would have shown the right spirit in the face of the strange. He had a blend of vision and conservatism that would have made sure that he trod very gently in the presence of the unknown. -- Paul Cornell

I don’t believe that governments known much more about aliens and UFOs than we do. And I don’t think they actually care very much. Their intelligence services, on the other hand, I think do have a lot to do with UFO mythology, in all sorts of ways. I believe there’s a reality behind this incredibly varied and layered mythology, but I don’t think anyone knows what it is. I’m sympathetic to those who’ve observed and experienced impossible things. I actually think any government that achieved genuine alien contact would shout about the fact from the rooftops. -- Paul Cornell

It was necessary to get inside Vampirella’s mind to answer our big question, but there’s a kind of cliched 1970s fill-in story where a character literally battles inner demons that I wanted to steer clear of, so instead this is me letting myself have fun, with some big gestures and lots of character comedy. -- Paul Cornell

The narrative behind these things changes all the time. And what fascinates me especially is how people who espouse different versions of the legends can appear on the same bill together at UFO conventions and not argue. These are sometimes mutually exclusive theories! As a body of fiction, this is fascinating. The fact that that fiction actually contains some people's real experience is doubly fascinating. This is all the stuff we'll be exploring. -- Paul Cornell

The most important thing about this fascinating and diverse mythology isn't whether or not it's 'real', it's what it says about modern culture. I've been researching this title since I was a child, nervously turning over the pages of 'real life UFO' books. -- Paul Cornell

She’s been so many different people. I’m bringing them all together into one person, which often happens to real people too, as they hit 40. -- Paul Cornell

I hope people get where I was coming from with ‘the annoying’. Conservatism, ultimately fascism, is about, in the end, complacency, of harking back and not seeing the need for change. To want to change things is annoying. And we of the annoying tend to find each other a bit annoying, too. -- Paul Cornell

This is a fun, serious, arty, trashy, new continuation of Vampirella that’s not a reboot. -- Paul Cornell

I'm a Fortean, a follower of Charles Fort, so my stance is to sit back and look at the mythology, be entertained and enthralled by it, without offering theories or judging the truth of it, particularly. In many ways, whether or not this stuff is true is the least interesting thing about it. -- Paul Cornell
