A Note to X-Men Fans

7 comments
I've had a lot of people on twitter this week calling me a monster. Even more than usual. For which I would sincerely like to say "thank you."

The angry words have all been in response to the ending of WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #18, which features something terrible happening to one of our characters. Never before have I been so excited to have so many people telling me to go to hell. Believe it or not, I actually found it all rather endearing. Because it means you care.

As WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN prepares to begin its second year, I just wanted to take a minute to say how grateful I am to everyone out there who has embraced the series. The story of the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning obviously has a different sort of setting and tone than any X-Men book we've seen in a while. But I've been thrilled and overwhelmed by the response.

This is exactly the sort of comic I want to be writing right now. So thank you for allowing me to continue to do so.

WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN has always been about change. About school and parenthood. About growing up. About family, both the good and the bad kind. And as with any sort of family drama, there will occasionally be upheaval. That's where we're at right now. As we enter the second year of the series, we'll see the cast of the book shaken up a bit. We'll see new mutants, both good and bad. New teachers. New villains. New romances. New rivalries. But also the continuation of all those character arcs already set in motion, from Quentin to Iceman, from Idie to Husk, from Krakoa and the Bamfs to the all-new Hellfire Club. Nothing that is happening now is by accident. It's all part of the overall story. And it's all leading somewhere. I hope you'll stick with us for the journey.

So thanks again for all the hate mail. I truly appreciate it. Thanks for caring so much about a new character. In the newest and most oddball of X-Men books.

As always, thanks for reading.

This, I believe, will be the first appearance in England by a member of the Aaron family since my ancestor Sir Beauregard Cumbercobb Aaron was forced to flee those shores or risk imprisonment over unpaid dormouse buggery fines. Let's hope the statute of limitations has passed on all that.

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 29 

11:00 AM

THE EMPTY PAGE: MORRISONCON WRITERS ON WRITING

It has been said that an author's greatest nemesis is a blank page. MorrisonCon's talented wordsmiths discuss their processes in transforming the empty page into the masterpieces that we have come to love. This group of comics innovators exposing the aspects of comics writing and the comics business that we as readers never get to see and delve into the depths of the creative process at your behest.

Featuring: Grant Morrison, Robert Kirkman, Jonathan Hickman, Jason Aaron, JH Williams III

 

5:00 PM

CREATION MYTHS: SCIENCE, RELIGION & MAGIC

Jonathan Hickman and Jason Aaron are architects of worlds of science, magic and myth. Bringing their unique and perhaps conflicting perspectives together, these two authors sit down to discuss the brink of human understanding and beyond. Is Arthur C. Clarke's belief that “any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic” correct? Hickman and Aaron discuss how the theory holds up, and take an analytical journey through hard science to theoretical hypotheses to the work of the Gods. What inspirations are drawn from centuries of theological doctrines and the course of scientific discovery and how are they be applied to modern storytelling?

Featuring: Jonathan Hickman, Jason Aaron

6:00 PM

TRIAL OF THE SUPERGODS

As day one comes to a close, use that last un-blasted brain cell to join our guests in some light-hearted trivial revelry. Master of Ceremonies, James Sime, will lead the festivities, taking our guests to task with your wiliest, wildest, or wackiest tests of trivia which can be submitted throughout the day in the MorrisonCon Salon. A perfect bit of madcap fun to cap off an intense day of creative energy!

Featuring: Everyone!


SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 30

11:30 AM

PAGE ONE, PANEL ONE: A COMICS WORKSHOP

Jung's concept of the Collective Subconscious suggests that ideas live within all of us awaiting emergence. Participate in a collaborative comics workshop illustrating this theory facilitated by former Marvel talent coordinator, Bon Alimagno, in which you and some of MorrisonCon's guests team up to act as equal creative colleagues to bring one of these shared ideas to fruition under a Creative Commons license.

Work alongside with some of the brightest minds in comics. Create live art together.

Featuring: Jason Aaron, J.H. Williams III, Chris Burnham, Bon Alimagno, + special guests

I'll also have some signing times sprinkled in there as well. Other than that, I'll just be hanging around, enjoying the madness. I'm expecting to have a blast. Hope to see you there.

WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN Update

2 comments
With issue #16 of WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN, which hit shelves this week, we unfortunately must say goodbye to artist Chris Bachalo, who moves on to another as-yet-unannounced new project. I owe many many thanks to Chris for kicking off this series in such a great way, for designing the Jean Grey School and for an all-around amazing run. He's been a terrific artist to work with. As wildly inventive as they come. So inventive I had to change the way I wrote my scripts. Chris has so many unique ideas about how to layout a page, that our editor Nick Lowe encouraged me to move to more of a Marvel style, meaning more of a loose plot instead of a full script. So I did, and loved it. My scripts still weren't exactly in the most traditional Marvel style, in that they still included dialogue (when I get a chance in the next few days, maybe I'll post some examples), but it's been an exciting challenge just to break out of my usual routine and a thrill to watch Chris work his magic. I wish we could've done more stuff together. Maybe someday.

As for WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN, we've thankfully got an amazing roster of artists to pick up the slack, like Mike Allred (whose Doop one-shot is coming up next), Jorge Molina (who wraps up our AvX tie-ins in a huge way in issue #18), Steven Sanders (who shows us Angel's all-new mission in issue #20) and of course Nick Bradshaw, who's already cranked out some gorgeous work on this series and returns to help kick off our second year with issue #19 and then handles our crazy new Murder Circus arc beginning with #21. And as if that wasn't enough, come next year we add Ramon Perez to the mix, fresh off his Eisner win for Best Penciller.

I'm one lucky dude.

Final thoughts on SCALPED

9 comments
These past couple days have been very special for me. All the kind words from fans and fellow creators have been really overwhelming. You people are seriously awesome. Thank you so much for supporting SCALPED over the years. Without you, we never would've made it to issue 60. And without SCALPED, I for one wouldn't be here.

Lots of people have been asking me how I feel about the series wrapping up, if I'm sad to see it end. I suppose I will miss writing those characters from time to time. And I will definitely miss working with the team behind SCALPED (though hopefully we can all get together again someday). But as far as the actual series goes, no, I'm not sad to finally be done. It's time. Time to give people of Prairie Rose the ending they've always had coming. Time to hopefully pay-off all the years and dollars you beloved readers have spent following their adventures. And time for me to move on to other stories (THOR: GOD OF THUNDER #1! Coming this November!).

I will do more stories like SCALPED, that's for sure. My next creator-owned project is already in the works, and I think it's something that will appeal to anybody who enjoyed the exploits of Red Crow and Bad Horse. I actually hope to start writing the first issue next week. But I don't think I'll be turning right around and jumping into another 60 issues series. SCALPED represents more than six years of my life. I don't have another journey like that in me just yet. Someday, yes. I think I even know what that next big one will be. But it'll just have to wait for a bit.

For now I'm keeping busy with X-MEN and THOR and that unnamed creator-owned book that right's around the corner. And I quite honestly couldn't be happier.

So again, thank you, SCALPED-fan, whoever and wherever you are. Even if I work in comics for 100 years, I don't think I will ever do another comic or work with another team or have another group of fans as special as this one. I love you all more than you know.

Now let's go have a beer.

Tomorrow, last one
