Q:Ed Brubaker kinda looks like Warren Ellis to me. Have they ever been seen in the same room?
Q:Are there ever days where you say to yourself, "why do i do this?" Like days where you get really irritated but you dont really know why.
Of course. I’m a writer. by definition I am an irrational, erratic, overly sensitive, hot mess of a human being
but I’m also a very rational father of young children who is by all definitions getting to live his dream. it doesn’t take long to remind myself that my worst day on the job is still a day at my dream job.
getting to do this for a living is amazing. the odds are so against all of this working out the way it did that I can’t help but snap myself out of whatever self-loathing angry funk I find myself in and just get back to work.
Q:Say there's a hypothetical situation in which, on Feb14, a nerdy guy who reads comics confesses his attraction to a nerdy girl who reads manga, and decides to give her a comic book... What would you consider to be the perfect issue to give? (preferably a modern-ish comic from Marvel/DC/maybe Image)... (girl doesn't really know who guy is, though she's definitely seen him in school and has talked to him about robotics a bit) hmm...
and this is real.
and was published by fantagraphics, ladies and gentlemen
and it’s never not funny :)
Q:In your opinion, which DC hero would fit best in the Marvel universe?
Q:Who is the Marvel Trinity to you? I think it's Spidey, Cap, and The Hulk.
it is stan lee, jack kirby and Roy Thomas
and chris claremont.
Q:I only started reading comics from the start of All New X-Men and I was wondering if there's any past storylines I absolutely need to read to understand upcoming events?
We try to make things as reader friendly as possible.
But with the trial of Jean Grey, and it probably wouldn’t hurt to have read the dark Phoenix Saga which is always in print and one of the great Marvel stories of all time.
but it’s hardly mandatory
and thank you
Q:How long are you going to be on guardians, just caught up on it while I was snowed and man I am loving it. I always wanted to like gurdians because the characters are so cool but to me the stories never caught me. Thats why I glad marvel put A level talent on it like it should be.
