gpack3 said: Stuart, I just reread Nextwave again for the first time in a while and it remains my single favorite comic of all time. Would you be interested in getting the band back together, if not for an ongoing series, then at least for an OGN/one-shot/miniseries?

If Warren wrote it, Nick Lowe edited it, Marvel scheduled it, and I was asked to draw it, I would be all over it but I suspect that ship sailed a long time ago.

leahofhell said: Kathryn - as a lover of your unjustly short journey into mystery run I'd love to know: what was your personal highlight of the series?

First, as one not-so-secret JiM lover to another, thank you. It was a tremendously good time. And second, at the risk of sounding obvious, the highlight was 100% making a book with Valerio Schiti. He was a delightful companion and a hilarious collaborator right from the get go. And  I think we both, inexplicably, ‘got’ Sif in the same way… fierce and elegant, dorky and awkwardly literal… all in equal measure. Totally incapable of telling a knock knock joke, she was our enormously gifted, sometimes misguided and mistaken,  Asgardian giraffe. I hope that some of what we were able to do with that character sticks going forward.

sabrinadeig said: Stewart, could you share your thoughts when you were trying to break into comics? Were you aiming for Marvel, or something else? When did you know you want to draw comics?

This tumblr recently had a series of posts about the last 26 years I’ve spent in comics and I’m sure there are a dozen interviews floating around in which I detail how and why I got in the business. Working for Marvel is great; it’s not the only thing I do.

Anonymous said: I've seen pictures of Stuart drawing on a ASUS slate, do you use that for professional work or personal projects? Do you have a preference working digitally or on paper

Personal projects are professional work, but I understand your meaning.

I’ve use the slate for Marvel gigs (see above for example) as well as on Russian Olive and SNIPE. I like it fine and I’m happy to have some facility with a 100% digital workflow since it makes certain tasks (or entire jobs) available to me that would be otherwise harder or even impossible to do. That being said, I wouldn’t cross the street to draw on a computer screen.

Axel does his weekly column for CBR, they’re always asking for questions. You could start there, I suppose but I didn’t send you.

We’re both working to get Russian Olive finished and I’m sure there will be an official announcement from Marvel soon as to what my next project is for them.

And thanks!

lady-alternate said: I love all your work, K & S both, and I was wondering if you might pitch a creator owned title with a female lead to Image or the like any time soon. Possibly titled "Totally Not Hellcat. (At All)" <3

Hey, thanks. That’s very kind.

To be completely honest, we’re not really interested in serialized CO work at the moment, which leaves Image out of the equation entirely. (Which is also not to say that there isn’t some great stuff happening over there and yes, arcs are  generally written to be collected so, in some ways, it amounts to the same thing.) For the moment, we’re more interested in self-contained books. The next thing on the hovering on the horizon after Russian Olive will also be a single object. Of course this could change, if one of us had some kind of brain wave, but for the moment we are happy to putter along on our current course.

I’m not at liberty to say what the next gig for Marvel will be, but Kathryn and I are speeding towards completing Russian Olive to Red King, publication specifics TBA.

nmrosario said: Are you leaving All-New X-Men for good or will you be back to draw more issues down the road? That book has been my favorite comic book for the last two years in large part because of your artwork. If you are leaving for good, then I just want to thank you for all your hard work in making ANXM as amazing as it is and I want to wish you good luck in your future projects. Thank you!

I’d never say “never,” but there are currently no plans for me to return to ANXM in any capacity. However, it’s in extremely capable hands; I’m certain your continued enjoyment will not be diminished in my absence.

Thanks for the kind words and well wishes.

nmrosario said: Love your new costume designs for the All-New X-Men and your redesign of blue/furry Beast. Did you get instructions from Mr. Bendis or anyone else at Marvel as to what they wanted to see for those characters, or were those designs all you? Either way, they're awesome! Also, if given the chance what character(s) would you like to redesign the most?

Thank you.

For good or ill, the present look of the Beast and the ANXM costume designs, including the colour palette, were my work alone.

The opportunity to rethink costumes comes up fairly frequently; there are some inspired artists for whom the task comes naturally, and there are others who manage in a more perfunctory way— I’m afraid I fall into the latter category. It’s part of the job, but it’s not something I go looking to do.

plotholesinmylawn said: Seeing as Tom McGraw became a writer on Legion Of Super-heroes, how much input did you have on the scripts during your run?

At the time, we had annual “summit” meetings where Tom, KC Carlson, Ron Boyd and I would discuss general plotline direction for the upcoming year; everybody present was free to contribute more specific ideas, but Tom alone handled the task of producing the scripts. I don’t recall whether or not anything I may have suggested actually made it to publication.

Not that I’m aware of. I’m not even sure who composes that team these days.

iwillscreamshoutandbite said: If you (any of you or both) had the opportunity to launch a new monthly for Marvel, what would it be (either a solo or team book)? And can you make it happen? Please?

There’s no question that we would say yes to a Hellcat and friends on-going with less than no hesitation. As to making it happen? We have less than no ability to do that.

The ask box is open for the next… let’s say 24-48 hours, should you have a question that’s been burning a hole in your pocket.
