Marvel Interview - Best Selling X-Men Scribe, Victor Gischler
How does it differ writing Punisher and Deadpool from X-Men?
|X-Men Issue 4 in store October 13th|
The already established canon in the X-Men universe doesn't seem to have stopped you from pushing the boundaries. That being said, why vampires?
The most basic answer is because Marvel said, "Victor ... we want vampires." That's when I saluted and got to work. But the bigger fact is that we knew we could do it in a kick-ass way. Mutants and Vampires actually have some things in common, and we touch on these themes in the first story arc.
We've seen a fan favourite infected and been teased with the rebirth of the main vamp himself so with issue #3 of your X-Men run in stores last week, what other surprises do you have in store for us?
Again ... Howard the Duck. No, seriously, that would be telling. Stay tuned, true believers.
Deadpool Corps is rolling along nicely and a brand new story arc starts soon which I'm pretty excited about. Also, millionaires should feel free to fund this film: http://www.pulpboy.com/
