Ms. Marvel with Kate (and Dan)

Dan and Kate are relaxing in leather wing-backed chairs in the library at the Asylum in St. Paul. A large globe sits to the left of Dan, a decanter of ginger ale rests on the table next to Kate. The walls are lined with fancy looking books that neither of them have ever opened. Kate: ::swirls snifter of ginger ale:: Dan, do you remember your first comic book? Your gateway book to graphic novels and men wearing capes? Dan: ::leisurely spins globe:: Why, yes I do. I was on holiday with my family to scenic Brainerd, Minnesota. I had a few moments to myself in between boating excursions and relaxing near the pool so I stole away to the resort...

SPIDER-GWEN with Kate (and Dan)

::Dan comes home and the Asylum in St. Paul has a distinct odor. It smells distinctly like the Minnesota State Fair:: Dan: I know I’m going to regret asking this, but why does it smell like the Great Minnesota Get Together? Kate: I nailed a huge presentation at work today! So to celebrate, I get to eat ALL THE CORN DOGS. ::holds up corn dog stick:: D: You don’t like corn dogs. You won’t eat them when we go to the State Fair, why would you make them at home? Now our house smells like the State Fair in the middle of the winter, and we can’t open the windows because it’s 100 degrees below zero. Everything smells like corn dogs and there isn’t...

Young Avengers #1 with Kate (and Dan)

::Kate is ravenously reading articles about Spider-Man appearing in upcoming Marvel movies.:: Kate: ::looks up from laptop:: OK. So the “too good looking to be Peter Parker” Andrew Garfield guy is going to appear in the next Marvel movie? Isn’t Spidey already part of the Marvel universe? Dan: Yes he is, but Marvel didn’t have the rights to put him on the big screen, Sony did. And Marvel studios hasn’t announced who would play the web-slinger in the Avengers movies. ::whispers:: I’m pulling for Donald Glover. K: Huh. So Spider-Man hangs out with Tony Stark?

The Black Hood Q&A with Alex Segura and Duane Swierczynski Jan26

The Black Hood Q&A with Alex Segura and Duane...

The Red Circle characters have historically been on the periphery of the super-hero scene, with the Archie characters keeping the spotlight for decades. But the newly re-launched Dark Circle line is looking to be one of the biggest news makers of 2015. What should we be expecting from your book, THE BLACK HOOD? DS: I’ll be honest—but Alex Segura first approached me about the idea, I was leery. I’d written a fair amount of superhero comics over the years, and wasn’t sure I wanted to dive back into another. So I pitched him a story that I’d been kicking around as a possible novel, something so dark and violent and Paul Schrader-ish that I...
