I don't know how many of you read my little Q and A yesterday on CBR, but if you did, I need to point out the correction I sent in to them last night:
After reading Joe Quesada's interview yesterday, I think I am remembering some details wrong and he and Mark Millar are remembering them right. Plus, I was trying to be a bit cheeky, which doesn't always work in print.
So, while I think the basic idea of Captain America being killed in Cap 25 was something I initially put out there, I think there was actually some debate about whether it should happen in Civil War instead of Cap. I don't remember it being discussed much, but Joe's interview sparked my memory a bit, and I know there was some back and forth on this. In my defense, we were locked in a room for three days straight, well over a year ago, talking about every book Marvel publishes in detail, and none of us were getting much sleep.
I've got a quick question:
Can you get me a copy of CAPTAIN AMERICA #25?
If so, I'll buy the CRIMINAL trade and start picking up the individual issues.
I was trying to remember when the last Marvel Retreat was, and figured that would be about the time something like this was discussed to coordinate.
It helps to show others who claim that it was an editorially mandated decision made a few months ago rather than you planning this far in advance.
So I'm guessing marvel didn't exactly get positive feedbacks about unmasking Peter in CW #2.
I wish I could get copies. I didn't even think to have my retailer sell me a stack that I could sign and sell on ebay for 50 bucks a shot. That's just not my style, I guess.
I'm very glad you got the chance to tell the story in Cap's book. It came off much classier there than it would have as a "shock ending" to Civil War.
