  • Writer Vs. Artist with CARLO PAGULAYAN

    This is the most Carlo has ever spoken in an interview as far as I know, and he has some good stuff to say about art greats of the Phillippines, and of course his working processes. Plus, you get to see some of the art from the Throwdown issue with the Agents of Atlas ramming into the New Avengers, which he’s been laboring on overtime.I present… Mr. Pagulayan.

    There’s an unfortunate need for editing in that article where caps are turned off and paragraphs repeat; but it’s very cool to learn a little about Pags.

    My name is in an AoA article! *faints*

    Daaang, that Lao sculpt is insane! Carlo has mad digital skillz.

    Yeah yeah, Carlo’s Namora is pretty awesome, but his rendition of Venus is where its at, MEEOOOWWWWR!

    (And maybe some Pagulayan covers soon???)

    Great interview. And great preview art.

    Can’t wait for this issue of Agents of Atlas. Chiefly for the run in with the New Avengers. Any idea when they’ll have their run in with the X-Men you mentioned in an old interview?


    “Whew, glad we made the cut. That damn gorilla, you want him off the team, he’s out of here! We’ll send assistant editor Lauren to go tell him, though.”

    Don’t even joke about getting rid of Ken. Best character on the team.

    I feel bad for the New Avengers there. Just Temugin and Namora could probably trash their whole team.

    Er, I hope that picture is misleading and Temugin isn’t going to be really fighting Ronin. With his Chi powers, he’d literally explode Ronin into gore in less than a second.

    Well hopefully the next panel is Temmy punching clean through Ronin’s head. If Ronin looks remotely physically equal to Temmy that would be bizarre. Temmy is Iron Man-level-plus. Ronin is barely Daredevil-level.

    I think you’ll be happy with how Temugin handles Ronin. Since I don’t have space to stop and explain Temugin’s strength (not his book, he’s lucky to be paid for a walk on), I’ll mention it here. He can’t as easily channel crazy amounts of chi since he lost his hand- that whole mind and body connection. So every situation won’t be the same for him. He’s still quite badass though, don’t worry.

    Speaking of badass…..

    Huh. Well, I guess that settles the question of who is the more powerful Chi channeler: Temugin or his dad.

    The Mandarin kept his full Chi channeling power despite losing both hands. Meanwhile Temugin’s Chi drops like a stone after losing just one hand.

    The Mandarin must be so embarrassed to have Temugin as a son. So embarrassed.

    No wonder he’s submitted himself to a team of pencil-pushers, monkeys and women: he lacks even the inner strength needed to keep control over his own Chi in the face of minor injury. So weak. So pathetic. So unworthy of his father’s bloodline.

    The boys at the Iron Man board have an interesting theory about Temugin.


    I was wondering what you guys here think about it.
