When was Strange Embrace originally published? The pages you posted in the article have a very cool, early nineties indy comic vibe to them. I have to pick this up, if I ever make it to the comic book store again.

Finally got around to comenting here. Great interview Greg. You wouldn't believe how many online interviews consist of the same six questions with 'fill in the blank', so it was good o get a real dialog going. Strange Embrace origianlly came out in 1993 so early nineties vibe may be about right (although I'm not sure my drawing style has changed that muchy in the intervening years).

Scott, thanks for the comments on the Marvel minis. How do I feel about the retconning of Silent War and Son of M? I think the only appropriate answer is 'No comment' although if you listen carefully you may hear the sound of teardrops pattering on my keyboard.

There was just something about Indy comics in that era (late eighties to early nineties) that had a particular feel to them... kind of like you were reading something... counter-culture? Rebellious? I'm not sure I can find the right words to describe it. Sometimes you read Indy comics today and they just feel like Marvel or DC comics with a lower budget (not that there aren't some good ones out there), but back then, the whole style just seemed completely different from what was going on in the mainstream of comics.

Scott, I agree about Silent War and Son of M, they were both awesome, particularly Son of M. Quicksilver was always a very interesting character and it was great to see him used in a way where not only did he get the spotlight for a while, but his character was able to grow in a way that made perfect sense given his history.

Question though - how was it retconned? Last I read, they seemed to be going with it in X-Factor. I haven't been to the shop in a month or two, and I have a lot of reading to catch up on though. Don't tell me if it was some kind of big reveal from Secret Invasion - I haven't read it yet.

well, at the end of silent war, black bolt was in prison on the moon, and in New Avengers: Illuminati its revealed that Black Bolt is actually Skrull.

so somewhere, BB got switched. Now, Mr Hine here could easily write a the third part dealing with the switch and make it all fit. So not really retconned, but just ignored really.
