Likewise, I see no shame in writing Captain America or Wolverine.
I didn't break into comics to write fairytales or crime comics.
I didn't want the headache of having a publisher reviewing everything I wrote in advance.
I spent as much time writing proposals in '98 and '99 as I did writing scripts.
I'm honestly as happy writing Superman Adventures as I am writing Wanted.
The books are all very, very different so the publishers really had to be different too.
Marvel books also feed into the smaller publishers and the fact that this is happening in the same month we're launching Ultimate Fantastic Four is no coincidence.
We've had really good mainstream publicity for these books and both Wanted and Chosen were snapped up as movie deals before each series even ended so I'm honestly just pinching myself.
The animated books pay the lowest rates at the Big Two and you can forget about royalties.
I wanted to portray very, very dark subject matter and a deceptively complex story in the brightest colours and simplest lines possible to leave the readers reeling.
I'd love to do something else for Avatar after this.
The breadth of the potential readership is also a factor.
The trick was really finding the appropriate publisher for each of the projects I'd devised.
It's been the most creatively liberating thing I've ever done and so I'm bringing some of that mad enthusiasm to Marvel for the next couple of years as they let me loose on some Marvel Universe titles you'll be hearing about soon.
Artists, no matter how good their intentions, are always slower than they think.
