  • Dark (Reign) Tendencies


    Go to Marvel.com for DARK REIGN discussion. Mainly go to see Neil Kleid’s hypnotizing effect on me. By Kleid merely saying “tendency” in a question, I was compelled to say “tend” THREE TIMES in my answer!

    Marvel.com: You have a tendency to populate your books with “unique” characters: M.O.D.O.K. Avengers, talking gorillas and dragons—you even just wrote a Frankenstein story for MONSTER SIZE HULK #1! Jeff, what draws you to the strange and unusual?

    Jeff Parker: I think it’s because of this: even though I rarely draw anything for Marvel, I tend to write as if I were going to draw the scripts, so I tend to fill my stories with things I want to draw. It tends to work out pretty well for the artists I work with, who not surprisingly don’t like drawing talking head sequences. And even if I do give them such a sequence, one of those heads might be M.O.D.O.K.

    I’m going to bribe Neil to use the word “nipples” in his next Parker interview.

    I think you should nip that idea in the bud, kj. Although I’m sure someone else will nip that idea from you. What would Nipsey Russell think of these shenanigans?

    Oh, like you nipples need to bribe me to nipple the word nipples.

    Parker: you are under my power. Nipple.

    Actually, I prefer drawing talking head scenes, especially if there are nipples in them.

    Sorry, couldn’t resist milking the nipple talk just a bit more… ; )

    I’m going to declare a halt on this before it leads to specific talk about the Hulk’s future daughter you drew in last week’s Hulk Family special…

    Really interested in seeing Temugin in Agents of Atlas! :-D That guy is insanely powerful, like Fist of The North Star powerful, makes Iron Fist look like a joke, so it’ll be fun to see him cut loose in a team-setting. :-D
