d-j-taylor said: So I just bought and read in one sitting the 4th trade for X-Men: Legacy. I haven't had a mainstream comic tug on my heart strings as well as this series did in a long time. Just wanted you to know that you're amazing and this story you told was amazing. Any hope of you writing an ongoing for Blindfold now?

Thank you! Means a great deal.

No plans for Blindfold, no. Maybe some day, but… well. It’s that fundamental thing about stories, you know? The story I wanted to tell ended, and for those reasons it’s immortal, immutable, resonant. If by chance I felt the need to tell a second story, which happened to include some of the same characters, then: fine. But there’d be no point finding a contrivance just to allow me to keep revisiting characters whose role in a tale has ended. I’d rather let them enjoy their endings for a change.

"Out of curiosity, was Fantomex kissing Nemesis commentary on his sexual preference or an outburst of happiness due to the fact that his expertise was recognized?"

The two don’t have to be mutually exclusive, of course. Though in this case: more the latter than the former.

I’m not about to make any grand proclamations about characters’ sexuality on tumblr, but - hell - we all know Fanto. I don’t imagine “nature of junk” is the first criteria that goes through his mind when making sexytime decisions. That’s not an official position, and if I were intending to make something of it I certainly wouldn’t be saying so here, but still.

Urghhh. 

Wait, so… You’d actually come buckets? Like, actual plastic pails would, what, spurt forth from your grossly distended, probably somewhat torn, definitely traumatised glans like a 17-pound cannon on the deck of a warship blasting out cylindrical rounds, probably while shrieking in horror for a doctor? Because that sounds, y’know, terrible. Why would you WANT that? You’re weird.

mattfrack said: Hi, just wanted to let you know that I'm really enjoying your run on X-force. Issue six was really amazing and a great pay-off. In particular, I'm really enjoying how distinct each character's voice is, and the way you're writing a really interesting plot that's very character driven. I'm also very happy about the focus given to the father-daughter relationship between Cable and Hope, one of my favourite comic relationships of all time. Thank you, I look forward to reading what happens next.

Aaaand thank you! Lots of juicy stuff on the way, and Pete Wisdom doing British swears. 

bisexualwolverine said: I really enjoy your writing, especially Wish You Were Here. I was very excited when I heard you were writing X-Force since it includes some of my favorite Marvel characters. Thank you for writing this series and #6 was a gift. Fantomex and Nemesis? Never thought of it before, but that was very cute.

Well thank you! And - with apologies for What You’re About To Receive - remember that the Wish You Were Here webcomic begins its final four episodes this Thursday. Ask not for whom the bell tolls, etc.

bochelly said: Hi! I just wanted to say that I really enjoyed the latest X-Force (Nemesis and Fantomex were perfect <3), and thank you so much for your work! I hope you have a great day!

Thank you! It’s taken me so long to get round to answering this I can’t actually remember whether I had a great day that day or not. I tend to err on the side of caution, so: no. No, it was awful. A really really really shitty day. But I appreciate your sentiment, and - IF I’d known about it at the time, in the depths of that shitty, dreadful, dreary, muddy, dog’s-arsehole of a day - I’m sure it would have been just a little bit more bearable.

Today, by the way, has been very nice.

kitsune-no-kaze said: I loved Legacy. unabashedly. I started reading it because I thought the cover art was amazing (issue 06) and that was it; I hunted every issue down and I'm pretty sure it was one of the main reasons I got into comix. thank you for that and thank you for your amazing work.

Aw, that means so much you have no idea - thanks so much. If you’re looking for more material I’d suggest you check out Six Gun Gorilla. It sounds like a ridiculous sort of book, I know, but it’s actually an extremely personal story which sits - thematically - as a companion piece to Legacy. Also: gorilla.

(The covers are indeed incredible. Mike Del Mundo’s up for a very well deserved Eisner award because of ‘em.)
