Have you read any of Christopher Hitchen's books?
No I haven't. The God Delusion sort of soured me on reading books about religion. I do like what he has to say.. usually. Sometimes he's a bit overenthusiastic;)
When you watch a movie, if you are impressed with a certain scene because of the camera angle, scenery etc, do you try to incorporate it in your drawings on future issue's?
Sometimes. I really enjoyed the backgrounds and images from Avatar… not so much the Navi or the story. I loved the scope, which is sometimes hard to do in comics. But I try to use them more as influences, the feel of the image.
Do you follow any comic book series?
Nope. I used to, but once in the biz you need outside interests or you get burned out.
Has anybody bought anything on your wish list?
We have a wish list?!?;) But seriously, yes. I have:)
I see sometimes you do covers for other series, How long does it take for you to do a cover?
That depends on what's on it. But say anywhere from 3 to 10 hours. Team books take longer… but you don't get paid extra.
What backlash/wildcore issue were you most impressed with or that you cherished the most?
Backlash 12. That's my favorite all around.
Was there a plot/story that you had for backlash that was shot down by the editors? “
Nope, since I was a creator of the character I got to say what went story wise until I left WS. If they hadn't of killed off WC I would have liked to have done it myself. I did have to work with other people though so things didn't go exactly were I wanted them. Things got a bit too convoluted with Atlantis (BL was originally going to be Zealots son, but Ron Marz wanted it to be that guy from StormWatch so we had to make up a new Lord, just like we had to make up the bad guy for Kindred, he was supposed to be Grunge's Father.) So if I ever do work on him again, Simple would be better;)
That's all for now... there should be some sort of announcement soon (like a few days.) I will be sure to post it here!
