theimancameron asked: Do you own the rights to a Brian Michael Bendis movie?

Probably not.

either because of the deal I have signed with Sony or because of the amount of times I have shown up in a Marvel comic :-)

Anonymous asked: 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 :-)

sequentialsmart asked: 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.

Anonymous asked: who owns the live-action rights for miles?

Not me :-)

 honestly, I get a lot of questions like this and I really don’t know and it’s really not my department.

I know what I own or co-own.

Anonymous asked: How often do you get actual fan letters sent to your PO Box that you have posted on your website?

Quite often. that’s where a lot of kids send their notes of total enthusiasm and fan art.

 I know some people think kids don’t read comics but they do and they love them and I hear from a lot of them. it’s pretty kick ass.

 a lot of people send me their comics and CDs too

lougwagon asked: How did you get started in writing? Have you always intended to work with comics or did you start off with short stories or fiction or poetry?

I started my training as an illustrator, attending the Cleveland Institute of Art, in an attempt to become a comic book artist and started writing to give myself something to draw.

 all this will be covered at length in my soon-to-be released Ted talk
