"[Morrison] doesn’t own the characters but if I thought it was going to piss him off, I would’ve bowed out. He thought it sounded neat. He told me to go for it. He also gave me a couple ideas he thought I should use." - Chris Burnham

GRIT!

A 1983 issue of the UK Marvel anthology Daredevils featured an odd back-up story that spoofed Frank Miller's acclaimed run on Daredevil. This throwaway strip would've probably been forgotten...if it weren't written by Alan Moore.

This strip — entitled "Grit!" — was a pitch-perfect mock-up of Miller's gritty depiction of New York City. Artist Mike Collins assiduously emulated Daredevil's style. Moore kept Miller's tone but replaced his prose with a story straight out of Cracked or Mad.

"We’re planning action sequences that make Young Avengers look like a slice-of-life comic about collecting nail clippings. There'll be formalist art-as-comics-comics-as-art playfulness that makes Phonogram look like the most derivative and graceless phoned in piece of shit on the shelves. When we need to, we’ll push all the dials into the red. (Not that we’ve ever been known to over-promise.)" -- Kieron Gillen

"“Marville,” on the other hand, was something different. It may just be the strangest comic that Marvel has ever published.Marville ostensibly began as a parody book, a vehicle for Jemas to make fun of his own industry. Marville-the-parody only lasted for two out of it’s six issues. The last four were…something else." - Laura Hudson

"The ONLY reason you should buy this comic is if you enjoy pain and want to inflict the most you can upon yourself." - Kevin J. Allen (an Amazon review of the trade paperback)

Couldn't find any quotes or interviews with Jemas about this comic... so quotes from everyone else who read and reviewed this series!

IGN Comics: Are there any plans for you to write Wonder Woman down the road?

Pfeifer: It'd be interesting. I might actually be doing an issue or two that sort of ties in with Amazons Attack. I'm not quite sure when they'll be scheduled, but there have been some talks. These series are so tightly tied that maybe I'll take a crack at it. I'm not sure how that affects Jodi's schedule. I'm certainly not replacing her on the book, but there's been some talk of maybe me doing an issue or two. That'd be fun. It's certainly a high profile book, and a DC book that has been appearing since the early forties. It's always fun to take on those iconic characters.

"I mean, the broader point of 'Planetary' was very much asking people to look at the roots the genre sprang from and understanding the primal quality of the 20th Century myths we wrote. So when this [story] hit me – and I'm pretty sure I was standing in my garden at three in the morning with a glass of whisky, smoking furiously and swearing at the sky, reduced to waiting for the thunderbolt to hit – it spoke to me not only of the reasons why someone might put on a helmet and find justice their own way, but also why we read these myths of social justice ourselves. Where would you draw the line?" - Warren Ellis

"It's super-dark. You have to imagine someone like Red Skull, who is such an evil force, is so manipulative, and I've always been a believer that once you start to look for the darkness you realize it was all around you all the time. The story is very much a Heart of Darkness sort of story about how you keep going deeper and deeper into this thing and in the process of doing that, the journey to find the Red Skull, it starts to corrupt them. It starts to turn them as well. It gets kinda dark."

Spider-Man: Reign

Spider-Man: Reign is in my opinion one of the more underrated Spidey stories out there. There's a bit of a "all there is to know about 'The Crying Game'" twist that's overshadowed the rest of the story. It's also been derided as a knock off The Dark Knight Returns (and the similarities are acknowledged with a character called 'Miller Janson') but in my opinion all they have in common is the concept of an aging superhero being called out of retirement. Simply put, Spider-Man and Batman are two very different characters -- you're not going to see Spider-Man as a hardened vigilante beating the crap out of Captain America. They're also products of two different periods; TDKR takes place during the Cold War, while Reign (although the connection is not as explicit) draws parallels with a post-9/11 America.

"Initially, ANIMAL MAN was conceived as a four-issue miniseries [...] however, I was asked to continue the series into a regular monthly comic book [...] Having no desire to produce yet another grittily realistic exploration of what it is to be superhuman and/or an urban vigilante with emotional problems, I cast desperately around for a new direction. What I finally came up with was 'The Coyote Gospel,' which became the template for the further development of the series [...] Hilariously enough, during [its] writing [...] I was utterly convinced that what I was writing was absolute unreadable gibberish and that it would hammer the final nail into the coffin of my fledgling career as a writer of American super-hero comics. The success and popularity of the story took me entirely by surprise and encouraged me to go on to produce the entirely unreadable gibberish which has since become my stock-in-trade."

It was going out the same way it'd come in.

The Warriors were confronting the High Evolutionary and his plan to kill everyone on Earth who wasn't flatscan human. They beat his Evolutionaries and subdued him.

Then Earth's own Eternals BOOM'd into the story.

They came crashing through the High Evolutionary's ship's roof. )

"And as much work as we're doing with the New Gods now, spending all the time with the characters, it will be a shame to think this is the last time we're ever going to see them. We're tying together two of the huge, sprawling, hallmark mythologies of the DCU — the Green Lantern mythology and the New Gods mythology — and after we've done that, those two are forever linked in some way." - Robert Venditti

"[The series will be] at times tongue-in-cheek in that I’m trying to capture the black humor of the zombies and their situation, in the spirit of the original series. However at the same time this is about what it means to be human and what it means to have that humanity taken from you, so there are some serious elements too." -- James Robinson

A page posted from GOD LOVES MAN KILLS, Kitty Pryde said Nightcrawler had a right to be bitter over his appearance, but isn't. I'm not sure how true that is. Kurt Wagner can be VERY bitter over his appearance, just not all the time.
Five years back, I said some characters have a "more woobie than thou" attitude. They are jerks to characters who act/believe/think in a certain way, when they themselves have more of a right to act/believe/think that way, but don't. Basically, they *should* be sympathetic to the other characters, but aren't.
