As mentioned in the Defenders thread, I mis-read him at first. I kinda identify with the dude a little. I take myself too seriously at times and Strange is a pretty serious fellow. He is also a bit of a story teller which I've been accused of now and then. Love the book even though I am less of a tights and fights comics reader than some.
Another book added to the damned pull. :^)
Okay, I'm not sure you're even answering questions anymore, and you're probably gonna asked this a million times from now on, but I thought I'd give it a try anyway....
In alternate reality where you worked for DC comics, and they asked you to write one of the Watchmen prequels, would you take the challenge? I personally think you could a pretty awesome Ozymandias story.
Defenders is awesome, Iron-man is still awesome keep up the good work etc. etc.
I thought it was here so I could say nice things about you. Guess I was wrong.
By the way, I wrote on my blog this:
"Defenders #1 was actually quite a pleasant surprise, a bit reminiscent of Gaiman or Morrison’s earlier works for DC, Matt Fraction creates a very interesting first issue (definitely one of the few promising titles from Marvel in 2011)".
thanks. glad you liked it. hope you continue to enjoy it. i'm putting issue 4 to bed this week. Michael Lark, Stefano Gaudiano, and Matt Hollingsworth bring you my best stab at doing a creepy Dr. Strange love story. it's called 'the french drop.'
The world needs more Michael Lark work, not that there should be less Terry Dodson stories either.Originally Posted by mattfraction
I love Defenders, it's right in my batch of favorite Marvel books currently. It feels like coming back home, with you writing Danny again. Plus more Namor, Betty, and Doc Strange. The Dodsons' art is the best I've seen from them yet, And the best part is it feels worth every bit of that 3.99.
Keep up the fantastic work Matt.
Matt, any chance of Joe Casey's Last Defenders showing up in The Defenders?
