Writer Jon Hickman joins us to discuss his innovative styles of
design and narrative. We preview his upcoming Marvel project Secret
Warriors, co written by Brian Michael Bendis . Col. Nick Fury and
the new super powered recruits he's assembled for the Secret
Invasion, will represent a a moodus operandi that has a different
purpose than the standard way SHIELD stories were told in the
past.Says Hickman, "(With Fury, your talking about the oldest
living clandestant operative in the world. He's not a 'read and
react guy'...Secret Warriors is not going to be about a random
number of spy incidents, and calamitous adventures... The book is
about setting goals and achieving them for a greater purpose . We
will be interacting with major (Marvel U) events and be active
participants... we just won't be caught 'on camera'."
In addition, we discuss his Image books Red Mass For Mars, Trans Human and Pax Romana , plus his Top Cow Pilot season entry, The Core.
