So I'm REALLY pumped for Flash joining the GoG in tomorrow's issue. Flash has been probably my favorite marvel hero for the last few years so its really nice to see him in such as short amount of time joining the big leagues. My question is this: at the end of Bunn's tenure with Flash, we saw him making it his responsibility to help his new protege Andi Benton with her symbiote Mania; so while Flash is away whose gunna keep an eye/help out Mania? Valkyrie? Beast?
Just so we’re clear in tomorrow’s issue Venom is absolutely on the team and you’re going to ask yourself: hey, how did this guy get on the team?
and you will find the answer to that question in the free comic book day issue of guardians of the galaxy not on sale in a couple of weeks
as for the other stuff, uh, um… sure let’s go with Valkyrie :-)
in all seriousness Venom will be a big part of the book and we will be carrying his subplots in upcoming issues
why won't you be coming to c2e2? we love in Chicago! even tho u had Scott blow up the same train I ride everyday!
After the Cleveland appearances, the Ted Talk, midtown comics and whatever surprise thing I’m doing very soon I am definitely convention retired.
with powers Tv up and running, my writing book coming out this summer, the new creator owned book and all the other stuff some of which you guys don’t even know about its best that I stay home and do my work and raise my kids every chance I get
but just because I won’t be at the convention doesn’t mean there won’t be announcements with my name on them. also, my good friends will be at that show including old man grandpa Bagley. go give him a kiss.
How would you feel about someone changing one of your creations in their storyline. (ex: super aging Dani Cage)?
Maria Hill is a movie star and is the commander of shield
Victoria hand is/ was a television star
Jessica Jones is a soon-to-be television star who trained the young avengers
Daisy Johnson is running around
it happens all the time. my creations or co-creations are the ones I do in my creator owned book. these characters are toys that I put in the Marvel toy box fully aware that by doing so I am letting them out into the wild.
So I've been a straight super hero guy for years but I've been getting into crime comics a lot these last few years starting with brubakers criminal and I recently just ordered goldfish and jinx online. As I'm getting around to get jinx, is there anything you could recommend!? Btw I will be getting murder inc. so don't worry about that.
I wholeheartedly and highly recommend scene of a crime and the killer
Is Guardians of the Galaxy 100 (really 14 in your series) coming out tomorrow on purprose? I'm asking because tomorrow happens to be 100 days away from the Guardians of the Galaxy movie. By the way I hope to see you tackle Yondu or Starhawk someday (even if its just a What If story). I can't wait to read the issue tomorrow!
Would you ever go on the Howard Stern show to talk about your work?
My love for the Howard Stern show is pure.
my place in geek culture has gotten me crazy places in the stern universe. I have been, no joke, inside Howard Stern’s apartment for an all day meeting with him. easily one of the greatest days of my life.
plus he has talked about ultimate Spider-man on the air.
on top of that I am a frequent guest of the geektime show on Howard 101 and the awesomeness that is Jason Kaplan has let me sit in on the wrap-up show and tour the studios
but I’m too big of a fan to even want to be on that show. to be a good guest you have to say some things about yourself that I might not want to say out loud :-)
Do you think it's possible for an artist create touching, meaningful art if they lived a life without tragedy? While I haven't had an ideal life, I'm still the product of a privileged, middle-class, suburban life that's never been exposed to the horrors of war, violence, addiction, abuse, sudden deaths of loved ones, or any of the tragedies that have befallen the great artists. While I feel incredibly lucky so far, it feels the best art in our history came from some very broken people.
Have you not felt heartache? have you not been betrayed? have you not been disappointed by life?
have you not been in love? have you not been loved back?
everyone feels pain and joy. everyone has tragedy and triumph. of course living in a free country with unlimited opportunity is a lot better than not but it doesn’t take away from the fact that we all have the full range of experience and emotions in our life.
and if you are in touch with them you can write about them.
and if you are in touch with them and can write about them then other people will know them to be honest and true because we have all felt those things no matter where we are from
And, by the way, you don’t have to have them inside your house to not have been affected by the horrors of war, violence, addiction, abuse or anything like that.
