Cover Dated 2006
I know I’m doing Daredevil Month here and I’ve included Daredevil pages in the other one but I only read one hardcover of the Bendis Daredevil run and the art with that was Alex Maleev. Lark did issues 82 through 119. Looking into this, he was the artist for Ed Brubaker’s Daredevil run, so now I know that.
So I got this for the Joss Whedon feature.
Spotlight was one of those series that I flipped through, looking to see if Kitty was shown on any pages, if so, I would buy it.
I like these types of series, where it is just in-depth interviews that are worthy of coming back to over time. In a world where Wizard doesn’t exist, we need something where this style of interview can be found in a format that isn’t online. CBR is great for interviews but once a few weeks go by, it is nearly impossible to relocate those interviews. Especially with creators like Bendis, where he does a slew of interviews for that website.
Whedon’s feature starts with a Marvel Handbook style introduction.
Above is the first page of six of his interview. I just scanned the pages with Kitty’s image on them. She’s mention on several pages.
Whedon’s Pull List was – Runaways, Powers, Planetary, Losers and Ultimate titles. He references Kitty and Spider-Man dating.
His favorite X-Men stories are – Uncanny X-Men 165, Uncanny X-Men 101, Uncanny X-Men 108, Uncanny X-Men 141 – 142 and Grant Morrison’s New X-Men.
I’ve included the entire script pages from Astonishing X-Men 4, as Kitty is on every page.
Pretty cool to see how his words give life to Cassaday’s art.
Issue ends with an interview with then editor, Mike Marts.
