s.w.o.r.d

I think this is the biggest interview about SIEGE, my four issue semi-sequel to S.W.O.R.D. with Filipe Andrade and a cast of thousands. Here’s the first coloured art from Filipe. The idea is that he deals with the majority of the book, and we have three guest spreads an issue from the aforementioned cast of thousands. It is a lot of fun, as is the book.

Let’s pull out a random quote.

These are fun characters, and it’s almost like I deliberately wanted to do new riffs. The other way of doing this is going through the entire history of alternate Marvel Universe dimensions and choosing cool characters and putting them on The Wall. That would probably be the more traditionally commercial thing to do.

This is my love song to the Marvel Universe though, and my love song is about the joy of the unfamiliar as well as the familiar. So the idea is that you know the archetypes, but these are new things that you’ve never seen before. That was my thinking. If I’m going to say why I love Marvel, it’s not just the characters. It’s also the process of saying, here’s something new with them you never expected. It’s not just this nostalgia thing. It’s the House of Ideas. Let’s own that.

Read the rest here.

I drew Abigail Brand because she is becoming one of my favourite characters reeeal fast because she is literally the baddest bitch in space.

Also i attempted a background and someone on my deviantart said it looked like a pokeball but its meant to be like a target or whatever. I dont know. backgrounds man.

A marvel movie with a female lead (not black widow) that should be made and made sense in the MCU

SIMPLES!

Abigail Brand. Leader of S.W.O.R.D (Sentient World Observation and Response Department) 

Half human mutant (oops bad word) and half alien. She’s a badass mofo that can speak several alien languages (including Kree) and also has magical fire hands. 

It makes sense that after the Chitauri invaded and terrorised those 3 blocks of New York that humans would pay more attention to what was out there in space. So S.W.O.R.D was formed. 

S.W.O.R.D weren't infiltrated by any HYDRA agents like S.H.I.E.L.D thanks to Sydren who is a powerful telepath. 

 

Abigail and S.W.O.R.D could serve as a link between The Guardians of the Galaxy and The Avengers. 

To make things ever more interesting she could have someone on her staff who is on loan from the Air Force. A certain person called Carol Danvers who could be sent on a mission involving the Kree.


oh… and as for casting Stana Katic (Castle)

she is my fancast for Mystique but.. whatever and i have no idea who owns the rights to Brand.
