So, I get asked this question a lot. By friends, by online acquaintances, and now I’ve got two pending “how do I get into comics” questions from folks and I figured I’d make this post to make it easier on me to get all the information to them and whoever else may benefit from it.

Let me say, I…

Matt’s guide is SO useful you won’t even believe it. He’s been treading a really impressive path over the last year - he’s not only got the work done and got comics out, but he’s had them publicised in all sorts of creative, ambitious ways, and it looks to have really paid off for him.

Captain Marvel is a true hero to me.

hey! The character stood out to me before, but I really like this way of thinking. Ace body language

A jokey illustration from Mark Witton’s informative and fun post on the new African titanosaur fossil find. I love his suggestion at the end:

I’ve developed a real hankering for a good sauropod book. You know, a readable, fully referenced overview of their history of study, anatomy, palaeoecology, biomechanics, evolutionary history and diversity (so, nothing major then). I’m quite serious here: they’re an awesome, popular group of animals, fully deserved of their own semi-technical overview, ideally with lots of images to showcase their anatomy and habits. I’m sure this idea has sufficient legs to interest a major publisher. I lack the expertise to write it, so this is my attempt to plant a seed in the minds of those who can. For what’s it’s worth, I’d gladly help illustrate it: sauropods are fantastic fun to draw, and it’d be terrific to bring the diversity of this group to life in artwork.

Anonymous said: do you like superheroes from the magic side of marvel? who are your favorites?

kierongillen:

I love ‘em. I suspect I’m one of the marvel writers who has most interest in the magic side of the universe, and magic generally.

If JIM had been an enormous success and got a chance to grow in scale, I’d have tried to roll in a lot of the magical people into it - you already saw that with Hellstrom, of course. 

Strange, obviously. Hellstrom. Magik. Does Elsa Bloostone count? The Juggernaut is never really “read” as a magic character, but is (and one of the things I tried to bring to the fore with him). Doctor Doom. Spiral.

There’s also a bunch of the gods and mythic sorts who are sorcerers - Malekith, for example, or my own Leah. Demons probably count, in which case obviously Mephisto.

And clearly Pixie. Always Pixie.

always Pixie
