Well, we had had a thread for Nick Spencer, so why not ask our new Ultimate X-Men writer, Brian Wood, who also posts here, some questions?
Obviously, we will ask stuff he can't answer. There will be some that he won't want to answer, for fear of spoiling anything. There will even likely be some go unanswered, just to egg us on. But hopefully, we can learn a thing or two about the plans, thoughts, and motivations behind the writer who will likely become a new favorite to some of us.
I'll start us off:
Mr Wood -
First off, it's great to see your name attached to Ultimate X-Men! Prior to your deal with Marvel to take over from Nick Spencer, were you an Ultimate fan? Was Ultimate X-Men in the Millar/Bendis/Vaughan/Kirkman days a book you kept up with, or are you relatively new to the Ultimate Universe? As you prepare to take the series in your own direction, which story arcs or characters from the past 100 or so issues stick out to you as your favorites or as inspiration for your run?
Thanks in advance if you end up answering any questions. And while I will miss Nick Spencer, I eagerly await your take on the series.
