Imperial Beach Teen Blog: Interview

Oops!

Apparently I forgot to post this link way back in September. It’s an interview I did with the Imperial Beach Teen Blog. Fun questions — check it out.

Newsarama: Wolverine Interview

Zack Smith of Newsarama.com fame interviews me about the upcoming Wolverine: Worst Day Ever novel for all ages. Check it out. Better yet, check it out and add to the comment thread.

ComicsSpotlight Interview

J.C. Vaughn asked me 20 Questions on the ComicsSpotlight blog. And then I answered them.

What Wolverine Means

So, when you announce that you’re writing a Wolverine book, you can expect some reaction, but certainly the most surreal consequence thus far has been this:

That’s the top chunk of the Marvel.com home page today. With yours truly. Click to see it larger, if you like.

Honestly never thought I’d see the day when I’d be plastered at the top of the Marvel web site…

SNIKT!

It was only a matter of time before my misbegotten comic book-riddled past caught up to me, and now it has. But whereas your average comic-book-geek-turned-novelist ends up being summoned back to the world of comics for a special mini-series or a story arc on an ongoing title, I was lured in a different way: with a novel.

Wolverine: Worst Day Ever
 is a short novel for kids ages 10-12 (ish), featuring a brand-new look at everyone’s favorite metal-boned mutant. I don’t want to say too much lest I give away some of the surprises, but I think I managed to find a unique way of looking at Wolverine…which was no mean feat, given how long he’s been around and how many other people have had their hands on him!


Todd Nauck’s very cool cover to Wolverine: Worst Day Ever.

The book is told as a series of blog entries by a new student at Xavier’s School, with illustrations culled from Wolverine and X-Men comics going back as far as Giant-Size X-Men #1 (and, yeah, I thought of Fanboy every time I flipped through that comic…). It was a lot of fun to write and I think it’ll look great. I wrote it for kids, but your average forty-year-old Wolverine fan should get a kick out of it, too. Plenty of in-jokes in there for the geeks. Represent!

Oh, and it has this most awesomely cool cover by Todd Nauck. Bravo, Todd!

 

The book should be in stores in April.
