QUOTES:

"I am a heel. Of the heeliest variety."

"I wonder when nerds are gonna start to realize that it was never their interests that got them ostracized. It was their behavior and attitude."

"X-Force #116 starts pretty much with Zeitgeist, the leader of the team, having a three-way with these two models while he's watching one of his battles."

"I loved that comic so much, I subscribed to it THROUGH THE MAIL."

"The plan was to resurrect Princess Diana. And then The Crown issued a thing to Marvel being like, 'You better not do this.'"

"It's gutsier than any X-Men book had ever been."
