When Will Romine Ran Into James Asmus At WonderCon And They Became Best Friends


Will Romine writes;

Hello friends!

Officially, Marvel had no presence at Wondercon. There was nary a panel nor booth representing the House that Lee built. However, The Starro costume has a drawing power unlike any other. When I walk down artist alley at any con, I feel like a topless woman walking past a construction site. The wolf whistles and cat calls are enough to make a fella blush!

One such “OMG it’s Starro!” came from James Asmus, the current writer on Gambit and upcoming writer on the All-New Quantum and Woody. I was able to sit down with him and get a little info about his current and future projects.

Will: Hi James

James: Hi Will

(This is the point where we become best friends!)

Will: So tell me a little about your current and future projects. I know you’re deep into Quantum and Woody.

James: Yeah, the first arc is going into resell their origin story but also add some wrinkles. Also, some good counterpoint villains. They didn’t really have much of a rogues gallery, so we came up with something that we’re really excited about, a ever ending supply of equally flawed adversaries, possibly the worlds worst super villains for the world’s worst super hero team. There will also be some to-be-announced supplemental materials.

Will: Can you announce to me?

James: No.

(This is the part where we’re no longer the best of friends.)

Will: What about your work with Marvel?

James: Yeah, I’ve been writing Gambit for the past year and I’m in the middle of plotting an arc that will take us to issue 17. The book has kind of been about breaking new ground for the character. The arc that I’m working on now will bring in some of his old mythology that ‘s come back to haunt him. The next couple of issues involve some Rogue-sploitation. There’s fodder for both lovers and haters of the Rogue-Gambit relationship.

Will: Sounds great!

(Friendship levels at 75% and holding.)

James: Also, the last issue of my Image book, The End Times of Bram and Ben, which is a buddy comedy set in the Apocalypse, is going to ship late. We wound up adding some things so that we could tell all the story that we wanted to tell. We’re also going to be adding a short story to the collected edition.

(Friendship restored!)

There you have it folks, a nice little interview, some news for you, and a new friend for me.

I’ll be at WonderCon all weekend, so tweet me right @notacomplainer
