Question with 14 notes
rasmuslykke asked: So re: Zombie Kate. Can I assume that she came from an alternative evil universe, where Fraction somehow managed to kill her before you did? Because I can't fathom how she could be dead, if you didn't kill her. Not in a just universe. (I'll just accept my No-Prize via mail, thankyouverymuch) ;-)
Please find your no-prize below.

glitchesaintshitbutcodeandbits asked: Why did you decide to cap Young Avengers at 14 issues? it seems like you could have done a lot more with it. Also who do you think would win in a fight between Jeff Mangum and Thom Yorke?
We didn’t cap it at 14. We thought we could do much more. A whole issue’s worth, so we capped oit at 15.
Jeff Mangum vs Thom Yorke: whoever loses, we win.

The second part of the climactic “Young Avengers.” It really is pretty much all climax. Jamie and his art army did magnificent and beautiful things, charting the fall of the dominoes.
Iron Man 19 is the second part of IRON METROPOLITAN, with Tony taking his first cheery steps towards building his city. Includes cheerful distraction from emotional issues, Pepper meeting Arno, Marc proving useful, columnists being naughty and Mandarin Ring chaos.
Actually, while we’re talking Iron Man, associated press have just announced the next arc – RINGS OF THE MANDARIN. I’ll write more down the line, but basically “Malkeith the Accursed versus Iron Man.”

randomthingsifind asked: Hello! Firstly, I've greatly enjoyed JiM and your run on Young Avengers. I'm sad that YA is ending mostly because I was hoping for some back story down the line on Miss America. My big questions are: will we find out what happened to Tommy, and what's the deal with Nega Patriot? I work in a comic shop and have already read Young Avengers #13 and holy wow. Didn't see that coming. FYI: JiM will be reprinted in an omnibus, volume one ships Feb 19. There's no word on a collected YA hardcover yet.
Without wanting to say anything else, we planned the 15 issues as a single statement, so I suspect you’d get something approaching closure on most of your questions. At the least, we’ll give the big clues for you to figure it out yourself.
And thank you. Glad you enjoyed it.

I just like the OH NO, HE’S HOT joke.

tyrianlugia asked: Hey, are you going to be at San Diego Comic Con 2014? Just curious.
No present plans.
Jamie and I did SDCC for five years or so back to back, and then basically decided we didn’t want to. We’ve never been back. I suspect it’d have to be something pretty hefty to make us do so. In a real way, as a comic creator, NYCC is four hours nearerer, much cheaper to get to and more comics-centric.
But never say never.
(I mean, to state the obvious - if there was ever a film of any of our stuff, we’d be there.)

I’ll write properly about the issue coming out later, but I wanted to say:
Issue 13 is out today.
It’s pretty neat visually at times.
People have already put up photos of some of the pages in the main tag without spoiler warnings. I suspect there will be more, through enthusiasm is nothing else.
(EDIT: They’ve pulled them down presently. However…)
I would be wary about the tag until you’ve read the issue if you care about such things.
