was the decision to do Casanova in spot colours artistic intent or a way to cut costs while coming out with a great product and a strong visual statement (in a way that restrictions and budget limits force you to come up with things you wouldn't normally think of), and is the move to go full colour on Casanova a result retailer pressure and a way to raise order numbers - or was it the plan all along?
Any tips you might like to share?
First off, a book like X-men, I'm not even sure how you juggle something like that-- seems pretty huge, especially at a point like now-- Anyhow: Was there any advice given to you by former X-writers or editorial about tackling something like this? Bendis (again) has talked about his difficulty when he started working on a team book (I think it was specifically Ult.X-Men, where he noticed that he'd always lose track of Colossus-- like, he'd just disappear from the story b/c Bendis didn't know what to do with him)--
how are you tackling such a huge cast? You've mentioned that you've got some massive wall-charts, what goes into that? Is it basically a list to track where the characters are in the storyline?
Basically wondering if you can speak for a minute about what you've learned thus far about writing a big-ass team/universe book like X-men.
In that vein, who do you think the impetus is on to change the system? Readers who get the books (often simply for completeness/collecting's sake), or editorial departments that are unwilling to make changes and take chances? Obviously there's some degree of chicken-egg in that argument, but which side to you think it would be more likely for change to come from?
n the next year, is Uncanny going to be an x-book that can be read on it's own, or is going to have a lot of crossovers and events where I have to buy one-shots, x-men: legacy, x-force, dark-avengers so on and so forth.
Also what is your opinion on crossovers, and major events?
Do you think it is unrealistic to have self-contained stories in an ongoing series or must every issue end with a cliff hanger?
I seem to recall you listing On Her Majesty's Secret Service as one of your favourite movies somewhere, and it happens to be one of my top Bond flicks as well.Here's what I'd like to know: Are you a fan of the franchise in general, or just that particular movie?
And if you are a fan, what's your opinion on the latest entries, starring Daniel Craig?
From my understanding, a large part of this is due to the justified increasingly popularity of Fabio and Gabriel (by the way-I'm super soaked for Day Trippers). But if you had your way, would you like to write Casanova so as to have the issues coming out much more frequently until completion (with book 7 correct?), or would you like breaks to get a breather, and rethink?
feel like they don't treat each other very well. But that's just my personal reaction, and I'm glad to know you've thought about their trust issues and will deal with it more as Nation X goes on. Keep the stories coming, and thanks!
daaaaaavid aaaaaaja, i just wrote a ten pannnnnnnnel paaaaaaage for yooooooooou
I really like your short stories (annuals and such). Any more of those coming down the pike?
I have to say, it kind of frightened me when you knew my name this time at Baltimore Con. :) Is the con experience getting tiresome? It seems like it would be fun in year one of Marvel superstardom, say, and then you'd be over it after a spell. Not really a great question, I guess, but I have been curious about whether or not the con travelling experience just becomes wearisome.
Is there anything you're aware of already that you'll be doing differently this time out, either as far as approach and style goes (like the full-color stuff) or thematic content? Any tricks you're itching to try out, or issues you're wanting to talk about, or events you want to have happen in these peoples' lives?
What COMICS are you reading these days?
Music related, have you heard of the band Quasi, that come out of Portland, OR?
