    Hey, it's THOR and DARK AVENGERS: ARES writer Kieron Gillen! I've really gotta stop using this thread to get away from working with these people.

    This is like Alejandro's inbox, but in public. I'll be quiet now. Bar my glaring.

    Gillen, unsurprisingly, fails at Bowie.

    Save for anyone promising to increase my penis size, which you two goons might consider offering once in a while, thanks very much for nothing.

    But Kieron's right, all joking aside, we'll fade into the background now and let Matt A his Q's.

    I'm Berlin period. You know - the cool Bowie. You two wouldn't understand.

    HEROES..., LOW, and STATION TO STATION are right after there, but not my go-to records, and even then, i skip around.

    You, of course, are a LODGER loving LET'S DANCE-ing YOUNG AMERICAN with all the charm of a Quaalude floating in a bottle of milk that's sitting on a pile of cocaine.

    Have you come across any media recently (books, tv, comics, internet, you name it) that had you sit up and go, "damn, that's cool", that you'd like to suggest to us?


    man, the move has really killed me. recently: tripping back through los. bros hernandez, having finally summoned up the courage to introduce myself to them and get some books signed; going through Chaykin, from FLAGG! to BLACK KISS; Spain's TRASHMAN (thanks Warren); a lot of Picturebox stuff-- Multiforce, PowrMastrs. Simonson's ORION. David Peace books. Umm... yeah, i'm sort of going on fumes right now.

    Are there any genres or story-tropes that you've never had a chance to play with, but would like to in the near future?


    yeah; i think my oblique answers to Sigrid explain or hint at most of 'em.

    My question is about your (and your family's) very public activity on social networking like twitter, podcasts, flickr, blogs etc. It seems like a lot of your personal life is exposed and out there for anyone to consume. Was that a conscious decision for you and Kelly Sue to market yourselves and your work? Or are you both just comfortable sharing a lot of intimate life experiences that other creators would rather keep hidden? It's something that would make me nervous personally, given some of the scary interactions I've had at cons on the creator side of the table. Is this one of the reasons you use a pen name? Does it cause awkward social interactions when fans presume to "know" you from your online persona and approach you in real life?


    nothing is calculated.

    kel answered this much better than I could, but quickly:

    henry has grandparents and great grandparents and uncles and aunts and great uncles and great aunts and on and on and it's easier to have it out there than to ask sixty-four year olds to create private accounts on flickr or whatever to see pictures of their grandchild. if someone gets creepy we'll reevaluate. I'm reveal-too-little; kel's reveal-too-much (in fact, on the old WEF she was called TMI Girl), between the two of us, our families get to participate, however passively, in their grandchild growing up. that's what's most important.

    as time goes on, i expect i'll withdraw further. nothing i hate more than the sound of my own voice these days (he says on day one of a week-long q and a thread he himself requested).

    my surname: when MANTOOTH! came out as part of DOUBLE TAKE the only pre-awareness i had came from the WEF and SAVANT where i wrote under my login name, which was Matt Fraction, which was how a telemarketer mispronounced my name on the phone the night i signed up for the WEF. and there was very little marketing done on the book, as it was kirkman self publishing it basically, so i thought, well, fuck, the only way anybody knows is me is through that name, so stick with it. i regret it now, but it is what it is and really it's not that big a deal.

    awkward interactions are awkward interactions; whether its someone that thinks they know me online or someone that thinks they're the best X-Men writer that ever lived if only someone would just LISTEN to them, it's all the same. and very much in the minority of the minority of interaction experiences. people, by and large, are great, face to face. there's a reason why anonymous tough guys thrive on the internet, yknow?

    Given that I've seen you mention it a couple times, what's your favorite episodes of The Wonder Pets?


    Thhhhhe Wonderpets Save the Baby Elephant. Henry would murder me if i answered anything else.

    I believe I referred to myself as such. It wasn't, like, an official title or anything. Sheesh.

    then what about that golden trophy you have on the mantle that's shaped like your perfect cervix? i thought that was a major award.

    Oh, it is. But that's from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists for excellence in girl parts.

    The one from the internet is shaped like an asshole and it's not a big deal.

    I've heard enough about your innards over the last nine years that I could probably fucking draw them.

    Ladies and Gentlemen: My Husband! He googles for buttholes.

    (The best part of that was hearing you mutter, "I should have said platinum" as you headed up the stairs. L'esprit d'escalier, indeed.

    <blockquote>do you plan on returning to the character any time soon? And, if so, would we see more of the slightly sarcastic Frank Castle?



    no plans at the moment. i did just see tony moore's art for PUNISHER #12 and it is off the charts amazing. </blockquote>



    Well, that's a damn shame. But good news! Tony Moore and Punisher!

    Loving "invincible Iron Man" by the way. By far one of the best Marvel books on sale. Not including Astonishing X men, of course (I have to say that, Mr Ellis is looking)
