Anonymous said: Considering you and Jamie have both done some super high profile and critically acclaimed works and massively expanded your fandom(s) in the past few years, is there any chance once WicDiv has finished that you'll seriously pick up Phonogram again after The Immaterial Girl sells fantastically and we'll get those 44+ issues?

Hmm.

Unlikely. Phonogram is a device for talking about various stuff. If we ever did more - and that’s very unlikely - it’d be other short minis or series or OGNs or something else.  I’d say it’s more likely I do material away from Jamie that may as well be Phonogram than we do significantly more Phonogram together.

Seeing any character or design I’ve had my hand in appear in the real world is genuinely overwhelming. The Young Avengers cosplay meet at last year’s NYCC was like a rupture forming in my brain.

The one that I’d always like to see in the flesh is the “Noh-varr from the opening scene of Young Avengers” one.

Some awful part of me would have liked my take on SINISTER to become very popular, and have about 50 people do the whole Sinister Class System.

Not my opinion, but She in The Singles Club had a lot of fun with it.

(Of course, knowing the history of the word, I was totally trolling people who like to send very long essays featuring the phrase “emotional hardcore.”)

Oh god. Loads. Lots of friends, and lots of people I’ve never met. There’s so many artists in the world, it’s difficult to know where to start.

At some point before NYCC. Hopefully.

Anonymous said: Super late for jumping on the Young Avengers bandwagon (and the asking you questions to waste your time unproductively bandwagon too) but I was curious as to how old all of them are. I know Kate and Noh are 21 but the rest are a mystery.

The rest are 17-19. I talked about this in previous asks, which may be google-able, as well as some thinking behind it.

HIGHLY SEXY.

"Imagine a world designed by Kafka, Stalin, Orwell, Huxley, Sartre and the Marx Brothers… "

As soon as this deal is finalized, I will leave Mojang and go back to doing Ludum Dares and small web experiments. If I ever accidentally make something that seems to gain traction, I’ll probably abandon it immediately.

Notch’s “why I’m selling Minecraft and leaving” post is quite the thing.

Honestly, well done him. Look after yourself.
