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.
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.
