nichotorres asked: I love comics and manga but why is it possible for manga chapters to come out every week? compared to comics were it takes a month usually, same amount of pages.

Because most American comic book artists don’t have numerous assistants working for slave wages on backgrounds and other elements

amerimnos asked: apologies if this has been asked before -- have you ever / do you want to ever work with George Perez?

I would drop everything to work with George. he is a very important person in my creative life. he gave me some powerful words of wisdom when I was a young man and I was very grateful that he took the time to squeeze in some pages on the avengers finale special we did just before new avengers launched.

he did the final pages and it made it feel real

 I can’t recommend the art of George Perez from IDW strongly enough. it’s one of those great art books that is also a career retrospective with lots of commentary and anecdotes.

I think the question you’re asking is why is there not enough nudity in your real life
