notofthisworldcomics asked: You didn't know Cyclops and Wolverine had opposing factions in the X-Men Universe did you? You don't bother to read the other X-books do you? What did you gain from twisting around probably a fifteen year old boy's words,who if common conceptions about comic fans are true struggles not to embrace himself around girls, by throwing him to the wolves? Have you ever said an honest word...

My C2E2 Schedule
Sorry for the last minute-ness of this, but I only now got my times for everything. I have a table, its number O18, right next to Ryan Kelly, as it turns out. I have a SMALL selection of books to sell, including a bunch of sold out Star Wars and its variants. Anything I make from those goes to the Red Cross. FRIDAY: 3-4pm - Signing at Marvel w/ Olivier Coipel (!) SAT: 12:15-1:15pm - Spotlight...
landariu asked: On "Vag and Dong and homophobia" I feel that your answer to that question might have been an over-reaction, based on your bad experiences with questions *like* that. The kid was honestly asking you were they stood on the 'mutant situation' which does have two camps, led by men, yeah, but heavily supported by other women, like Emma and Kitty, he wasn't being male centric...
zhurenaissance asked: I know people have probably been really hounding you about this kind of stuff but I just want to ask, is there a chance Frenzy will be in X-Men?
Vag and Dong and homophobia
So I did an “X-Position” interview, which is where readers on CBR, I believe, can ask me questions about my X-Books and I answer them in a column. This is possibly the 15th interview I’ve done about my upcoming X-Men relaunch and its a challenge each time to answer questions about a book no one’s seen, and without spoiling anything. I try and make it as interesting as...
X-stuff in July

New Ninth Wave
http://brianwood.myshopify.com/ Limited numbers of both (less than 30)
zachexplainsitall asked: I have a really interesting question about dmz. When the series started, the war was already 5 years old when matty arrives. My theory goes like this: the war started in 2006 (when dmz debuted) and the story takes place in 2011. Because it still takes place post 9/11 and soldiers are currently in irag when the war starts as seem in later in the series. When the war ends the series progressed 6...
Ninth Wave t-shirts
So I’m making a couple more designs, very much like the first but with different “missions”. The most recent two was something of a success and also a disaster. It was my largest print run yet, but the private, existing customer-only pre-sale burned through about 90% of the stock in a couple hours. Which wasn’t really the sort of thing I was going for. So for these...
Revisiting an old friend
Seeing if there’s some life in this still.

Channel Zero #1 - Fifteen Years Ago Today
Fifteen years ago TODAY, Image Comics released Channel Zero #1. I was working at a dot com job and bought a copy for myself at the now-defunct Cosmic Comics on 23rd St. Warren Ellis emailed me to say he liked it (kicking off a long friendship and the long start of him helping me throughout my career). I didn’t own a computer so the above cover was cranked out in the computer lab at the...
22.189948,114.182968 // HONG KONG
themassive: CALLUM ISRAEL / NINTH WAVE / KAPITAL I’d been to Hong Kong several times in my life. Six times while with Blackbell and liaisoning with British SAS. One time after the 1997 handover, and then seven times as part of Ninth Wave operations. HK is gloriously messy, humid, and equal parts modern cosmopolitan and medieval. I have an arrest warrant Read More
themassive: From my friend Jenn Cortes: “Four volcanoes erupted at once in Kamchatka. Some guys filmed it and have a user-controlled camera with a 360 view. Pretty cool. “
warcaster asked: I attended a lecture on Global Trends 2030 (GT2030 is an ODNI report on future global socioeconomic projections and strategic response), and "The Massive" came up as an example of "black swan events" possibly distorting the power of prediction. Just wanted you to know that government analysts in DC are reading "The Massive," and I thought that was awesome.
andrewcahak asked: What kind of notebooks do you use?

themassive: So the comic came out today. Here’s a PDF download of the script. Ask questions if you have them, I’ll do my best to answer.
Northern Boy Onwards
So I have this online store and I sell t-shirts. The whole point of the limited edition nature of it all was to enable me to design these things and sell them/ship them without it turning into a fulltime job or requiring a massive amount of money for production. This last run of shirts had me fronting $1000 to the printer, seeing around 100 orders in two days, and running out of most of the...
X-Men Interview for Wired, full text
So here’s the article, but below is the full interview for people who want to see the whole thing: — WIRED/Laura Hudson: Obligatory opening question: How did the idea for an all-female X-team come about? What made this the right time? BW: It’s a little hard to pin down exactly when and how, as there was a lot of common thinking between myself and editorial and plans morphing...
modernagecomics asked: Seems the thoughts are that "XX" is going to be an all females title, can you drop a hint towards at least one of the featured heroes? With that I would just like to say your current run on Ultimate X-men has been fantastic and we are excited to have you on more X-men related books. Keep it up!
Star Wars on USA Today
A never seen (even by me!) cover, and some additional preview pages at the end.
The Massive #1 Reprint
themassive: Dark Horse is reprinting The Massive #1, charging a $1 for it, and I did this new cover for it. I think its out in April. See it much bigger here.
2012 - The Work-Obsessed Overview
I did this a couple years ago, where I look at the number of comic pages written and brutally assess my own self-worth. Two years ago, my last full year of writing for DC Comics, I churned out 880 pages of comics and declared that to be Good. This year, 2012, I did 1198. If I can write one more by the end of the day, which is what my editor is expecting of me, that’s 1220. How it breaks...
