This week’s MyCup O’Joe was an interesting read, for all those who dig some old-school comics artistry.
Among other things, Quesada not only talked about collaborating with Stan Lee on a 10-page story for Amazing Spider-Man #600, but also discussed Gene Colan’s involvement on Captain America #601, which used to be the Captain America Annual. (Marvel has a pretty cool interview with Ed Brubaker up on their web site about that, right here.)
Some other interesting quotes:
Regarding “hate” on Marvel Divas: Marvel Divas…if it’s for you, great. If it’s not for you, okay, that’s fine as well. But I just don’t get how people want to hate on things without having read a stitch of it.. What have you read of it? What have you seen of it? If you want to hate it after the fact, fine. Hate on it. Maybe we didn’t give you a book you loved. That’ll happen. There are hits, there are misses. But if people want to hate something before they’ve read it, before they’ve seen anything of it… okay, knock yourself out.
But what about Spider-Woman?: The reason for the delay on Spider-Woman is quite simple. As we’ve announced previously, that series is going to debut as the first of our all-new Motion Comics, a major digital initiative that we believe is going to become a bigger and bigger part of our publishing program as more and more of the world turns to digital platforms for their entertainment. The drawback with working in a new medium like this is that there’s plenty of experimentation. Everything is new, and so little has been done before, so it’s taking us all a bit longer to work out the kinks than it normally would, and we’d rather delay and get it right than rush it along being only a fraction of what it could be.
For me, however, I think my favorite part of the interview was when Joe Q revealed some artwork for some upcoming Noir titles. If my eyes are not deceiving me, is the fourth page a new Noir version of… Luke Cage?
