What is it about hulk that draws you into the character?
do you have any plans to be a part of the heroic age? and will you be a part of the hulk family after the fall of the hulks/world war hulks thing that is going down?
What is it about hulk that draws you into the character?
Marvelman in the 616: yay or nay? And would you ever be interested in writing the character?
Hi Jeph, Which comic book movie adaption are you looking forward to seeing the most this year?
Hi Jeph and John, This is my first post on the Bendis boards, I have been drawn here due to Johns superb work producing Word Balloon podcasts and have been devouring his episodes and back catalogue for the last few months. I was drawn into comics at the age of 14 back in 1994 due to the X-Men animated cartoon. My local comic book store was always a place that seemed a bit taboo but I was pulled in and the first book I picked up was Jephs and Steve Skroce's Cable 19 the last chapter of "The Dark Ride" story line (the cover is my avatar) I had no idea who Cable was before I picked up the book and through Steve's visuals and your writing I was instantly drawn to the character and have picked up every thing Cable has appeared in since (even the god awful solider X series)
Cutting to the chase, How did you land the Cable gig?
Where there any story lines and plans that you had planned that were never followed up on?- I recall near the end of the onslaught tie ins and the microverse arc in the mid 30's that GW Bridge and shield were on Cables trail where was this heading?
What do you think of Cables current direction and would you like to write the character again? My money is on Marvel to kill him off during this summers (my winter) Second Coming x crossover.
Thanks in advance for answering the questions and I look forward to reading more of Jephs work and hearing more from John.
Hey guys! To start off again I'd like to thank you both for doing another edition of the Loeb Report, and as always I'm a big fan of the both of you.
It's been a very big 2010 for me so far, I'm publishing my first comic both in print and online this april, and I've been accepted into a college that will allow me to dedicate my passion for writing, I plan on majoring in both Screen writing and film. Jeph, you've been one of my biggest heroes and role models for as long as I can remember, and you have the career I'd really aspire to have for myself. Writing for tv and films and most importantly comics. So do you have any advice for a kid leaving a small new england town, and planning to take on the world? (a pretty big and vague question, but any advice would mean the world to me)
And my collaborators and I just want to let you know we all love Hulk. When we get our hands on a new hardcover the three of us all read it, and then talk about who we think the Red Hulk is, it's a huge experience for us. We love all your work, and can't wait to see more. Love the show guys, keep it up, John Siuntres your a hell of an interviewer.
Hi Jeph and John, i hope your having a good 2010 so far, on to the q's:
1) I really enjoyed the first issue of Ultimate X and looking forward New Ultimates. I was wondering has there any difficulty in getting the OK to kill off wolverine and introduce his son (who is not Daken). Who was the first person in the room who said 'i think we should kill off wolverine'.
2) Hulk is awesome and loving the fact betty and talbot are back, i still reckon you have a list somewhere of who you want Rulk to beat up next. Is there any chance of seeing Rulk going up against Galactus since he has already knocked out the watcher.
3) Do you have any input into Marvel Studios?
The funny thing is.............
Hey Again Jeph. I've always been loving your work and I am one of the few people in my circle of friends who still reads Hulk (Their loss)
I have a few questions to ask and one comment/suggestion
1) I have heard rumors that the whole "WHo is the red Hulk", after Issue 1, suffred from a Captain Atom/Monarch Fiasco where people, apparently, found out who he was already and the idenity was changed at the last second. Any truth to this or has the identity always remaind the same?
2) You write a fantastic Jen Walter's She-Hulk...if offered to write her on-going would yo accept and what artist would you want to join you in the title?
3) I know the idea of Red Hulk was given to you when you got the job of writing the Hulk but where did She-Rulk, Samson, and A-Bomb come from? I am especially interested in how yo ucame up with Rick becoming A-Bomb.
4) here's my comment. There is this web personality known as the Nostalgia Critic, a guy who reviews nostalgic movies (usually things prior to 2000 or so). In January he reviewed Commando. I really recommend (if you haven't already) you check it out. It's a really funny review. (The site is www.thatguywiththeglasses.com)
Keep up the good work Jeph, Can't wait for H.O.H. and World War Hulks.
1) Is it safe to assume the Jen's story is pretty far from done and that we haven't seen the last of her?
2) More a comment than a question: Even if people know who Rulk is, don't let that lead you to pull a laqst minute switcheroo. The real fun is in the ride, regardless of if you know the destination or not.
3) Um...so is Bruce or is Rulk Lyra's dad?
4) Thundra will be back, right?

Thanks for taking time to do another Report.
As a creator, how do you organize your thoughts and ideas?
Do you have one journal which you put everything in or do you have different journals (or perhaps folders on a computer) pertaining to your different projects?
Is there a system you recommend?
Again, thanks for your time and I wish you continued success on Hulk, Ultimate X, and your future projects.
