Because there's a certain strand of nonsense that seems increasingly out of place over on the old Workblog.

Question with 33 notes

lostphantom666 asked: in your opinion what does style > substance mean ? I know your a busy person but I really want to know your opinion.

Heh. This has been sitting in my inbox for a while, as weighing up how much to say. Like everything in YA, there’s at least half a dozen reasons for it.

As a general societal thing, it’s an insult aimed at often technically accomplished and often beautiful work people consider vacuous.

As a title, it’s shameless trolling.

therealsongbirddiamondback asked: Grand Budapest Hotel was awesome!

It was. Informed by a lot of what Anderson has done before, but put together with a lot of joy. I mean, it’s the closest I’ve seen him do to a romp outside of stop-motion. Fun, funny and very beautiful.

Playing Porpentine’s new one, LOVE IS ZERO, as recommended by Cara. Join me.
Pretty much matches my mood, though the quote I’ve pulled is on the down side of the up/down thing . Porp gives sorts of warnings herein as you go in, and you should pay attention to them.

harnessurhopes asked: Have you watched 300: Rise of an Empire yet?

I haven’t. I don’t really get the cinema a lot.

(Actually, I’ve been to the cinema more this year than years. GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL, CAP AMERICA, GRAVITY, etc. And I was clearly very late with GRAVITY.)

salkafar asked: Are there any plans at all for Tony - being a tech guy whose currently working with almost-alive cities - to meet the Manchester Gods?

No current plans, alas. I’d agree they’d have things to talk about.

brendanhykes asked: I've been following your Wicked & Diving playlist on spotify and I was just wondering if you'd listened to any How to Destroy Angels? Seems like it might fit.

Never actually listened to them. Thanks for the rec. Listening now.

Question with 21 notes

alienswillkill asked: Hey Kieron, I was wondering if you could quickly brief over your journey of how you got into Marvel and started making books for them

I’m going to be doing a length podcast interview on this very topic quite shortly, actually. It’s also something I’ve talked about in quite a few interviews, so it’s google-able if you want more.

In short: small press self-published comics lead to doing PHONOGRAM at Image, and getting lots of attention. Warren Ellis picks writers for spin-offs to his NEW UNIVERSAL, and picks me for one. That issue shows I can write Superhero comics (which as much as people like PG, that doesn’t exactly show) and several editors ask me to do more stuff. I do it, they like it, they give me bigger jobs. Repeat last step until I’m writing Uncanny X-men.

In short, I did work people responded to, people liked it and it lead to breaks.
