mizstorge asked: Fearless Defenders #5 just arrived in my mailbox, and I am THRILLED! Can't say what I love most: the legacy of Odin, Thor AND Loki (asdfghjkl) in Brazil, the heroics of Archaeologist/Newbie Valkyrie Annabelle Riggs, or the absolutely amazing - and timely! - appearances of a dozen of Marvel's most famous female superheroes! (Looking forward to at least some of these worthies becomming Shield Maidens!) Thanks for a memorable issue, and keep it up - ur doin' it right!
Thank you so much! I’m glad you’re enjoying the book. I think you’ll really dig what we have planned next!
derek-checks asked: I loved Wolverine: Rot. Have you written anything else along the same lines? (sick, gross, disgusting)
Comic book-wise, I dunno that I’ve done anything quite so out-and-out horrific as the Rot story. I did follow it with another Wolverine story (Covenant), which has been collected. Believe me, though, there’s more sick stuff on the horizon.

The League of Neglected Boyfriends needs to be its own title!
constructoforange asked: Been a fan of yours for a while and am loving Fearless Defenders. One of the best books on the market if you ask me. Think it's weird that despite being surrounded by well known heroines, Annabelle Riggs is my favorite character in the book? Really enjoying her and her interactions with everyone.
Annabelle may be my favorite character, too! I had a feeling readers would relate to her, and I’m glad I was right! In a book about super powerhouses, we needed someone like Annabelle to ground the book a bit.
ajacquelineofalltrades asked: Confession: Fearless Defenders was the very first Marvel comic that I ever bought at issue #1 the first Wednesday it came out. I was looking forward to this more than I could express and the comic has simply gone beyond my expectations. Thank you so much for writing one of my favorite characters, Valkyrie, so well and bringing together such an amazing team of heroines.
Thank you so much! And welcome aboard! I’ve had many people tell me that this was their first comic… or their first Marvel comic… and that means so much to me. I’m so happy you’re enjoying it!
funus-eris asked: Whats the best part about writing Venom? and Will we be seeing any classic villains soon?
Venom’s a fun character to write. I enjoy Flash Thompson’s stuggle to be the hero he’s always idolized. And I feel like Venom lends itself to a kind of weirdness and craziness that really appeals to me. As for villains… I dunno about classics, but you’re gonna see a LOT of bad guys in the next arc.
magesmagesmages asked: Just wanted to sincerely admire the hints of romance you are putting into Fearless Defenders. It is so lovely to see a lesbian romance in progress, with more subtlety, expression and feeling than most of the heterosexual romances we see in comics. I can't tell you how much I'm loving Fearless Defenders because of this. Also because of everything else of course!
Thank you! In a book like FEARLESS DEFENDERS, something like romance can get lost in all the action, so I’ve tried to hint at it where I can. That said, there are troubles… and more romances… ahead for the characters.
