With the book’s creators now fully-fledged superstars at Marvel, iFanboy talks to Rick Remender, Tony Moore and Jerome Opena for an Oral History of Fear Agent. Here’s Remender explaining the early appeal of doing the series:
The idea was to just be untethered in imagination and to be able to do something that was grounded in a character that you cared about. The adventures that he would go through would be any amazing, cool, science fiction ideas that we had. We wanted to work in time travel and dimension hopping, doppelgangers, and every kind of wonderful sci-fi trove we could. We understood the important thing had to be Heath and his story and who he was.
The second installment (of three) is due to run today. It’s a great format for a classic series; I hope to see more of this kind of thing for other books soon.
