willmc28 asked: What mediums besides films and prose do you take writing techniques from? Like storytelling methods, not just inspiration. For example, Morrison has said he has structured panel grids based on octaves and harmonic scales in Multiversity. Also with Final Crisis he talked about using storytelling seen in poetry and opera. Film and comics borrow a lot from each other. What else do you borrow/steal from though?
This won’t be a surprise to a lot of you but i am a big fan and gigantic nerd about playwrights and playwriting. it is probably my biggest influence. I read a lot of plays.
that is where I get my word as a weapon/ word as plot motivation from.
it’s not for everybody but it’s the kind of thing that makes me really happy.
and I know this will sound weird for some people but I’m not that influenced by film so much as I am the Art of cinematography. I don’t write my comics using screenplay techniques even though I can see where at first glance it would look like I do. most things that I do in comic book form are big no-no’s for the movies
sadly it is long out-of-print but my Bible is a cinematography documentary called visions of light. I show it in my class every semester.
oreja-man asked: What would you recommend to someone who hasn't read nearly anything besides classic Spider-Man and wants to start reading some other marvel superhero titles?
This is a really great time to get into new superhero titles because Marvel just relaunched a lot of books under the banner marvel now!
I don’t know you so I don’t know what you like but I do know that a lot of these new books are pretty fantastic and if you head over to the comic book store a really good person there should guide you towards the awesome stuff.
or you could just stick with things with my name on it :-)
comicpitchs asked: When are you going to start answering AoU #10 questions?
I am going to give it a couple of days.
maybe I’m being over sensitive because of the leaks on Monday but I do know for a fact that a lot of people get their books on Wednesday and then a lot of you get books on the weekend… so I don’t want to accidentally ruin something for the weekend warriors.
I know that, obviously, there are a lot of leaks out there but I want you guys to feel that you can come here without me spoiling anything without warning.
I will say thank you.
what a crazy day. when the stuff leaked on Monday and so many people were bitching at me about it out of context I was kind of bracing myself for a punching bag day instead of the controversial day I was hoping for where some people liked it and SOME people were ready to kill me.
when I hopped on tumbler I had SO many messages waiting for me my sphincter tightened because I thought I was walking into a buzz saw but instead, pleasantly, it was about 90% positive. which is about 20% more than I was hoping for.
so thank you. I know this ‘event’ was a different shape and size on every level than the ones a lot of you are used to. and some of you are open and almost hoping for a new experience and some of you are just annoyed by it and me :-)
it always makes me happy when so many people who read my books are so open to new ideas and new kinds of ways to get excited about these characters.
now that the series is over I do invite you guys to read it all from the beginning. starting with avengers 12.1 you can read all the way through and see how the pieces fell together and why I made some of the choices I made.
I would love to hear from some of you after having done that.
as for some of the fallout we are doing a marvel press call tomorrow. you can go to Marvel.com to sign up for it.
Shaolin Cowboy by Geoff Darrow is finally coming back this fall!!
