Phoenix Comicon 23rd-26th
I’m off at Phoenix Comicon;. I’m there with my Avatar hat on, so you’ll be able to find me at the Avatar booth. It’s a particularly gore-covered hat. It’s very fetching, if completely metaphorical. I’m only on one panel, which is about Uber. On Friday, 4:30 to 5:30 in 125B. There’s also an Avatar panel from 3-4 on Sunday in the same room, which I...
That new costume
mckelvie: If you’ve read issue 5 of Young Avengers, you’ll know someone gets a new costume. I thought you might like to see the original design sketch and my thoughts that went into the design. Below the cut for minor spoilers. Read More
Young Avengers 5 Out
The end of the first arc, where we put the last pieces together. There’s previews out there, but I’m not linking to them, as they’re all pretty heavily spoilery and/or intense with an extended gap before the page-turn. It’s an interesting one, I think. When it unlocks at about 2pm GMT, you’ll be able to buy it over at Comixology. You can pre-order it at the mo. And it’s in good comic shops...
ne0nic0: just a heads up if anyone wanted something from my etsy, I’m attending a sale at my University on Saturday and I’m not sure what stock I’ll have left over after that, so order before Saturday :) (I’ve also got some sloth tote bags in process atm too :) ) I love ne0’s stuff. Go nose.
DECOMPRESSED 019: BETTIE BREITWEISER AND MATT...
Decompressed returns, with a difference. This time we’re talking toBettie Breitweiser and Matt Wilson, two of my favourite colourists about their work, primarily related to FATALE 14 and WONDER WOMAN 20. If there’s any one part of collaborative comics’ creative engine that is underdiscussed and misunderstood, it’s colouring. It’s always been important, and in the last decade, it’s only become...
I think mainstream American Superhero comics lag a little behind other...– From my new interview about Young Avengers over at CBR, which finds me in a pugnacious somewhat wanky mode.
99c/69p Comixology Sale Today
(The idea of a photo of me PEERING at everyone on Comixology’s mailing list is kinda scary) Anyway! A sale of my stuff. Well, of Journey Into Mystery and my Uncanny X-men V2 run, anyway, and one issue of Rob Rodi that has got mixed in. (I’m tagging this YA, as I know a bunch of people have expressed interest in reading the backstory to Kid Loki.) Comxiology purchases can either be...
The Fictional Man
I started reading Al Ewing’s novel while waiting for the last train back from Gamecamp and immediately decided I had to devote a chunk of Sunday to consuming the whole thing. Garth Marenghi dropped into a Phillip K Dick novel, this uses its science fiction conceit of cloned humans with programmed personalities of fictional characters to act in Hollywood movies as a device to illustrate...
mckelvie: America process.
How to be Awesome by Diplomatic Ensign Noh-Varr,... →
piratemoggy: I’ve finally got around to writing another thing for Freaky Trigger about Young Avengers, this time addressing whether anyone around here is cool or what. (yes) Also Noh-Varr’s butt. Quuuiiite a lot about Noh-Varr’s butt. This is fun. That all the cast - bar America - are pretty goofy is a big part how the book works, for me.
Writer's Notes On Iron Man 10
Spoilers, obv. [[MORE]] This was fun. Clearly, it motors. Doing a whole heist in an issue is tricky. Doing one in five pages is harder, but necessary. I need space to show why this matters to Tony. I need space to show why it matters to Howard and Maria. Page 1 Yet more of Dale’s background detailing. Fun! I originally wrote Tony more silent here, but it seemed to need more. ...
msamericachavezz asked: what work is your inspiration or what is your reference to get American's usage of latin slang right?
beanclam asked: If Loki took off his gloves in Young Avengers, would he have the black nail polish? I need to know for science.
ouroborial asked: Hi, I'm sorry if this question sounds provocative, but I'm genuinely interested in the answer. I'm a fan of your work and think Phonogram is all sorts of amazing. However, I was thrown back by your work in uncanny X-Men. My impression was that you decided to ignore your authorial voice in favor of something much more canonical. Frequently, the dialogues seemed to have been written...
amanohoshi asked: I want to say I just love the new volume of YA! I just got my copy of issue 4 earlier, and I must say that the story keeps getting better and better. I just noticed that in some scenes, the Amerimoms switch costume colors. Was it a correction or a mistake?
josh-aua asked: Do you have a favorite issue of Fatale?
ebbsfleetghost asked: Any chance of posting some Iron Man writer's notes on the various Voldi power sources and the people contacted in Howard Stark's search for help? I recognised a couple of the references (indigo devourer = Galactus?) but sure I've missed some as well. Thanks!
flairvsprecision asked: I know you're a fan of Little Mix's E.T. What are some of your other favourite X-Factor performances?
pixelkaiser asked: Do you think it's possible to make a book too personal? How do you avoid falling into that trap?
taotrooper asked: About "Sauron multiplied by that anti-Dumbledore guy cubed." What is the part that's cubed? Is it just the anti-Dumbledore guy (Voldemort...?) or the product of both bad guys?
themorningmoon asked: I can´t
Young Avengers #5 Preview - IGN →
mckelvie: Seriously spoilery (it’s not the pages you’ve seen on here already), so I am linking rather than showing the pages. Enter at your own risk, but I’d say just wait until next week.

geminiradio: Big, big deal if you’re wrong. Jai Paul - In The Company of Wolves (you can’t buy yet) This is likely to be one of the most important albums of 2013. In keeping with years of enigmatic positioning, it was leaked for a day then hastily retrieved. I managed to snag some of it, which I now…
Iron Man 10 Out
And we dive into THE SECRET ORIGIN OF TONY STARK with the first part proper. This one motors. Preview here. When the issue unlocks, you can buy it online here. There’s an interview over at CBR about the story, where I touch on a bunch of stuff. Those who were wondering about the 451/UNIT stuff should find their answers in here. Actually, while we’re talking, Crave Online reviewed the first...
