Please keep in mind that I work for a NATIONAL newspaper. And yet they still find the time and space to keep me humble. Thanks, guys!

The Curse of the Mummy’s Tomb (1964) - Behind the scenes

(Source: pinterest.com)

"For years now, comics have gotten lost in the noise of Comic-Con — but this year felt like the worst example of that. The comic-book companies seemed to have a harder time than ever breaking through the clutter, and there weren’t really a lot of big announcements. We got more details about Spiderverse and Grant Morrison’s Multiversity, but a glut of alternate universe stories didn’t feel especially fresh at this point."

The Biggest Winners And Losers Of Comic-Con 2014!

I wish I knew which staffer wrote this paragraph, because I’d love to sit them down and tell them why they’re wrong. I was at the show this year and all I saw were people excited as HECK for comics. I spoke to several rooms packed FULL of people, with lines around the corner, who wanted to see Image creators. I was on a manga panel where a crowd of people cheered or gasped or laughed at our choices for best and worst manga. I personally spoke to several dozen of people a day who wanted to read Rocket Girl or Lazarus or Deadly Class or Kung Fu Bible Stories. I watched Jasons Aaron and Latour blow through their signing lines. I watched Scott Snyder hustle to make sure the fans were right. I watched Kelly Sue DeConnick do her thing with aplomb at what seemed like every single moment of the show, and I watched Chip Zdarsky and Matt Fraction make a couple hundred people a day smile goofily. People kept telling me how good the panels were and how it made them fans of authors they’d never heard of before. One cosplayer said that sneaking her into the Saga signing made her whole weekend.

And that was just the experience of one man working one booth. Boom! was hopping. Fantagraphics looked great. Vertical had some of the best books at the show.

If you were at SDCC and you don’t think comics had a fantastic presence, if you’re judging the significance of comics through whatever announcements to buy things that aren’t out yet came through, you need to adjust your sights. You’re aiming in the wrong direction.

Judge it by the smiles, not the capitalism.

QuestionYou mentioned you wanted to clean up some of the phoenix stuff in the Ultimate world, are you still doing that? Would love to see what you do with Jean after Woods left her a bitter broken shell of what she used to be. Answer

Sadly, it’s not to be.  No plans in the near future to return to the UU. But, it’s in extremely capable hands. :)

QuestionHey man, I just read your last issue of Ultimate Fantastic Four and I wouldn't to let you know I'm really sad to see it cancelled. You clearly seemed to have a lot of ideas for arcs going forward and I really would've loved to see what kind of stories and worlds you would've come up with. Your Doom in particular was great and I would've loved to see the continuing dynamic between everybody. I hope you get the chance to work on the FF again! Answer

Working on the FF is quite literally a dream come true.  I’ve loved them since childhood and getting to play with them and whatever twisted versions they let me dream up is seriously one of the most exciting things I’ve ever gotten to do. 

So, I’m hoping and praying my time playing with the characters isn’t over, either. 

QuestionI just wanted to tell you that I really enjoyed last issue of Ultimate FF and I'm really sad it's ending, specially so soon. Answer

Thank you so much.  Issue 5 is NUTSO.

QuestionSo do you have more Marvel work coming up or did you give them the finger for cancelling UFF? Answer

I’m so incredibly grateful to Marvel for the weird things they let me do.  

But, I’m taking some time to work on my creator owned books, and some non-comics stuff right now.  

But, no, no middle fingers anywhere. 

Here’s where I’ll be today, folks.  Don’t forget to get your BRAND NEW BUNKER TPB’s, Issue 5 advances, and THE LIFE AFTER exclusives, AND your very own EXCLUSIVE BUNKER PIN SET!
