"Technology but Yeah if you could get them together. They're probably far better members than i do. Certainly fabian never forgets anything. It sounds like a well oiled machine. You know three guys who respect each other and it's like it's last couple of weeks and i've covered some the atlantis attacks annuals and i'm like i don't know how you guys like. People just like when the angel thing goes through like everyone's annual that year it's like you in the basically the whole marvel lines like in there. I'm like out of they do that yet. Sometimes it's easy and sometimes it's just a nod to things in sometimes you know. Oh i've gotta acknowledge that new york is been sent into another dimension and that's all i needed to sort of you know. Put a headline on a newspaper in that day. Or how up a broadcast on a on a tv monitor. Something but sometimes it's integrated and you've got a lot more to do and always better when you in my experience when you have the creators thinking things through and having a chance to kind of connect on that because they would then really invest themselves. Not that's true with any creative thing that's when you when you invest yourself in it and you really feel like your your thinking it through more than it comes to life better and you wanna run with it as being as opposed to being told you're said hands do this with this character right once getting back to spiderman and these issues. Yeah i guarantee you. We said let's bring spider in for sales. I'm going to be completely honest. That would have been you know reason to do it but once we had spiderman than it was not to come back in order to pump packing done. Yeah but you also want to make it work for you. Because of the story hasn't worked for you then you're just going to go by the numbers and so that's where it starts to become. You know you lose yourself in the story a little bit and you let spiderman actually drag you into different places than you thought. You were going go because he is going to do that. That character is gonna tell you if you will allow him or her to take you into some cool interesting places. And that's where those types of crossovers whatever you know become better because you've been allowed to move with the character in the story line versus just being told have to do this. You know so Have you ever had like a a person that wanted their character to do across over there. Like let In an instance where somebody so they want to use. Derek played out The only instance. I could think of was just after three hundred where a lot of people still wanted to use the kingpin and they want to use the kingpin as if nothing had happened like people would come to us plots and say oh the kingpins skyscraper and he's lording over new york and he's running none an and now we just we just destroyed vis. We just completely torn down to the to the roots. But why not. Why can't we do this because we just did. So if you wanna use fisk on the streets and have him kind of doing some street level thing or whatever fine but we're planning to kind of build him back up. That was the only instance. Where we i can remember source saying. Don't play with it in that way. We we always try to be good citizens and shares. Because that at some point we'd want to use somebody else so we try to being in a nice nice nice folks about that i. I'm gonna cut that there Again thank you sir. For another great month.

"Which means a we gotta keep track of fifty more stories that we normally do and also realistically big air quotes around that. How is spider man. Peter parker and all these places when he's also supposed to be doing all this stuff in his own bokan storyline. So you can. This is were monthly continuity comics work for you and against you at the same time people get too over concerned with that kind of stuff. We can't possibly be added New artists especially if any character lived in. You're in new york. It's never sleeps peter nervously. You know this this would be. How could it be downtown. World trade center when he's uptown in this other comic or something. Let's make it believable. He only had three. What three books at this time. Yeah exactly he's he can get around. You can get around now. We didn't we didn't have any any As i said we didn't have any issues with that at all from either the biggest issue. As i said ralph doing course correction on my story sensibilities and that was. That was the right thing to do. Now i mean sometimes you it feels a certain way but i mean reading your stuff like i never thought it was like. Oh he's milking the currently our guest stars because you know early on punisher that goes. I never thought that you were like. Oh yeah. I used to throw him in. The no like said spiderman made perfect sense. You know the spider sense with the be able to tell them who surgeon. General was because they've even know what she looked at this point right and that was the fun little things like how do i pain this person in the room and draw out so once we had somebody It was my was my nature to want to use them to their to their best ability. And how do you play it out. Ghost rider doesn't doesn't necessarily fit in dare-devils world. But once i had him in that particular issue we played it out. Well i remember bobby chase being very positive on how we use ghost rider in that which probably ultimately led to me. You're doing some work with her with the midnight. Sons comics So here once we spiderman. How do you play them off. And i think While i prob- probably didn't think about it when we when we i said. Hey let's get spider ransom in some issues for sales reasons I wasn't thinking that only gonna do this really dark story. And he's going to be the perfect foil because he's lighter in nature ultimately that then becomes exactly how well he works because he doesn't have a counterpoint if spiderman wasn't in the story i don't think it would work as well right. Is this if this was just matt heritable pursuing this really grim villain it would be a different it would be all that grim stuff all the time and that would be too much to take in in a particular in a particular story so it was a gift in some ways to have that ability to play it off like i said yeah matt cares about people so much and they need to get started getting more angry with surgeon general. Just just her apathy and stuff. You need someone there to say yet. Yeah back down back down right right right or just let the pressure off in a couple of things. now it's turn the pressure off and then spiderman quips about something or or whatever and then you get a chance to to to change the dynamic a little bit. Even if matt may not acknowledge it. The reader can acknowledge or the readers. Got a little bit of a different a different moment. In time i was gonna say you probably don't have that original scripture talking about the was probably a victim of the crash There's so much. I mean i still have that hard drive somewhere and you know i like the physical hard drive actually tried to send it into one of those hyper secure places. At one point you know for several thousands of dollars go in with a white glove treatment. And guys i guess in like has yeah the cleanroom exactly and they just sent it back to me and said yeah. We can't do anything with this so they this is one of the places charge big money for it and they were like net. But i've held onto it. I'm sure there's nothing to be done with ever so she just drills through it and just toss it but now i've got it's the great tragedy phil. I just curious because he was saying. I have never done you wrong. That's all day in know but then the thing floppy to read the floppy discount anymore. Right you can't you can't plug. Oh floppy player into a modern computer. You'd need somebody dog -als in connections just curious because little he said this is the story is editor like you to denied the first time. So i guess it was so gruesome the first time he had the tone at dow. Yeah it was it was it was would have never done that. He said what i said. I said to fill the beginning route froth mafia but the editor was right and and probably ralph ralph himself quick but i think he was us absolutely on the right wavelength. These sort of said you know. This isn't a clive barker. Comic and i was writing. I was writing somebody that clive barker titles. At that time. That probably you know i was in. I was in the zone over here. And it's you know gavel here devil year and you just don't separate the two so when ralph called me out on that was like okay. So i can't i can't imagine but i I probably could imagine nineteen ninety two. I don't know if they want their mascot spiderman in a story like that too. It's like oh my seven year old pickup this spiderman. When we're the carnage comics. I now i know please. I know i do not. I do. not the things that's fighter and went through his own titles. I do not. Under any circumstances this could have been full on hellraiser and and it would still be rebecca of sunnybrook for compared to some cards stories. So i- spiderman went through a lot. So i i think that We we took good care of their character than we were respectful. We treated him In the right way. And and believe me knowing danny a finger off If if we were all based daddy had no hesitation of marching in the office and as can happen and throwing throwing the plot right down and call dan and tell them to make it work so the fact he did not means. We're we were in a good place. Go no. I'm a big fan of spider man. 'specially this air and i think he you wrote him very in character. It's it. sounds his exactly like peter parker own. It's fun you know. Because i think at that point scott style was still It was still exploring different things. He hasn't quite found. You know what he would. He would later become so his his spiderman in this issue in these two wishes berry. I was thinking like.

"He became a way to lighten things up. Because you can have him do his trademark clippers minus or or you know throwing a size or questions or or what are you doing Because that's the that's the playfulness and aspects of that character to get get stretched out. So i i think my favorite part of that is like surgeon. General's about the tac. Peter and let you know he's like waiting for was anytime anytime matches crabs with rosa off the buildings. She's like i know he'll stick to the side of buildings. Exactly it's through says. Yeah now. I know where the daredevil and and he just yeah just chuck some over and hello speaking of a woman who has about that woman who has stabbed men hello hellfire good morning if powerful green screen behind you. So what are you gonna do with that now. Have you been good. Good good good mergers the throwing up peter parker off a rooftop joins us my favorite moment. But it's so funny you met you message me about the The lawn mowing because like right before we started he was like. Hey if it gets too loud. Let me close the window. There's people outside like it's the date for summer. you know. We got a new neighbor. They don't know better because that kind of lake let my neighbors know free bill film. Don't mess with the atmosphere around the time. So we all kind of agreed in their nails. So yeah there were some good You know places to play with the city. There are taking a a friend of mine. Older friend of mine gets name checked. I think in three. Oh six There's a thanks to a guy named jonathan fishermen who at that time work down at the world trade center. You know and So he was able to get me kind of a walking tour within the winter garden area which were used as a setting there where there's that That party of all list of all the folks in the surgeon general her team move in so it was nice. Really get that as as a walk through and get a sense of the space. And i think it it comes across as elliot photo referenced for scott's work with so it things like that i think make it feel like it's more More real and gave me an idea for some of the action scenes and sequences. The suggested to stop. You know we not through this re blow up that or or whatever else. School intuition cakes above and beyond. Sometimes you know sometimes you just get that that And i liked that. I always. I've always likes having the reality of things to show real plays in a world. Yeah makes sense. You know not be on why you can make things up the more the more detail you can give to something that makes it more real for for you. Nowadays artists can probably look up anything they want really quickly but but again at that point in time it would be extremely difficult to say. Hey they're in the setting even describe all the glass and the pylons and the you know the views scott would have still been scratching his head. Saying i don't really live in new york. What am i gonna do with this so again. I mean you said the story holds up in absolutely does just because you but like you said except for references like the world trade center spider-man's maritime. This should be happening pretty much at any point in time. Right right right right. yeah no. it's it's it's it is relatively solid. That's why enjoy again appreciate what you guys are doing with me here to back and reread these things. Sometimes say look at stories are really work and But no it's a. It's a solid story and A couple of things on the nose. I mean for last name being cutter. I probably wouldn't do nowadays but trying to you. Know they're let the editors make these choices to i to you know there's a there's a tradition there. I mean a guy named auto. Octavius became doctor off. So true so true should team up with them coulda gotten that. But like i said i appreciate. They always always the temptation bring spiderman. You're going to have like a super villain you to dislike somebody cannon fodder still manner shockers just kept it. You know again just a very evil person. Don't bring up still man or we might have to have still manson Recovered still we should talk about. Don't more of the grease story a kind of played that out but it's You know you mentioned before phil i. I am sure. I am beyond sure you know that including spider was was a partly a sales ploy as much as anything else. How do we. How do we pattern out in a certain things within the book to both do good for the character and do good for his own storylines but the fact that we live in a in a larger universe of characters but also larger universe of sales concerns. I'm sure there was something about Can we get some spider here And that would have been again. The the reason that the spider office would have said no not because we didn't get along with them or that they didn't like the story but you can only spread if ring responsible that character can only be spread so many places you know one month right. So spiderman was in demand the x. Men was into an wolverines demand All the high ticket item during demand. So fortunately we got in early enough and and They allowed us to kind of like play with us now. Later on. Seems like spiderman daredevil. They go hand in hand like their stories like there's so many classic stories you would think that nobody but he would hesitate to say like spiderman near. It's make that happen again. there was. Yeah there was no. There was no hesitation on on that from a storytelling point of view. Character point of view. But i definitely there was a sense and things were a lot looser in those days than i'm sure they are now but they're still points in time where the editorial office would try to assert control because fifty fifty different comics. You spiderman this month..

"To acknowledge and work within the confines of where he was at that point sort of see me bending over backwards to acknowledge because daredevil for folks who whoever. The story drags. Peter parker in peter. Parker's young guy. He's a good looking guy. He wants to use him as bait essentially in these nightclubs to lure this surgeon general character. Picking him up of course. Peter parker's meredith time. So you can't just sort of throw which gets their shows matt's manipulative side of to us people and things going to get what i what i need But he A i don't remember any Any reaction from The spider office. On you've got to change this and you've gotta note do this As as this story kind of a nods to and some of these things you know it doesn't hold a candle to carnage. This is this is a is like a bedtime story. Kids imperative some of those. I i know i felt more comfortable reading karnik stories than this. Yeah but i mean. I mean again like you i mean it is it holds up because again except for the reference to the marriages could be spiderman at almost any point in modern storytelling. He yeah and i think that's always where you you kind of come around to the certain aspects of of these characters that work well are things that dumb you can return to. And they're nice touch points which doesn't mean they're static Right now these characters are static but the essence of them that you wanna play with Maintains itself so if you're writing spiderman or putting spider in story He's he's not grim and street and you see that daredevil is quite grim. In the story you know he's really upset and he's really sort of Charged in retrospect a little too much. You know maybe maybe. That's something ralph should have dialed out a little a little bit more play with in an in a different way but hindsight's always twenty twenty and you sort of wonder where you are at certain points in your head that also influence what you do not just historian influence but sometimes y you know what's going on your real life sometimes plays out on the page within the story and that's a that's infamously like why a movie like indiana jones temple of doom is so is so graham in a nasty Because what george. Lucas was going through a divorce and steven spielberg was doing something else. So like their life was come through..

Abreast of that news assurance I will I will we I was gonna say that's a nice segue. So Yeah I was GONNA. Ask you what you're working on now or what's coming up yeah. I. Mean. It's You know I- i- segue data comics For the most part, you know in the in the early two thousands really proud last thing I did was ninety nine or so couple small stories for some independent things that never I think came out you know I did some sufferers mythologies mostly amid the work I've really done now for the last stretch of time has been a lot of writing advertising work there but Just recently in the last couple years and idea the Carl and I had many years ago and it was a bit of a horror influence. Somebody described it out which I think steel as a the the good place meets from dust till dawn and. And little. Place and And You know it's it's it's this idea. We had Carla come to me with this crazy ideas. Yeah. I I'm thinking truckers and dimensional portals, and maybe there's a stripper in there. Somewhere Carl's a great. Guy. And I'm resume on the phone many years ago and I'm like Karl. On good conversation I don't know where this goes but thanks for calling and then I sat down and it was like you know you suddenly feel like you. Got This Hamilton moment of like you know your pen is like attached to your your brain and something else was channeling its way through, and so I write this whole concept out about this You know this this what could those inter dimensional things be? What are those truckers delivering? Where are they delivering them you know is there some kind of of infernal aspect to it because I like horror somebody hijacked into the service of this delivery system? This you know Fedex system for the most parts of the universe. I write this whole thing out almost straight out now and and it it clicks and me and Carl are loving it and and then we started lost touch like it didn't. It didn't grab hold and then we reconnected a couple years ago when the first words of both our mouths were like you remember that thing. And and it was really weird that it had actually stayed with both of us have become a big fan of this idea that that ideas or like or like actual of if the`real genie like things. and. They will visit themselves upon you and if you're not smart enough to do something with them, they're going to go onto somebody else and and so I said to Carl this thing stuck with us for a reason if we don't do something with now, this is our last chance to do it. Somebody else is GonNa go it's going to go and visit somebody else. So we've been working on it and I've written a five issue first story ARC and I'm working on a second issue six story. Arc and he's begun to design the characters and lay the pages out and and so we you know we're going to start shopping around publishers or kickstarter it. You know hopefully within the next you know set a months or whatever to see if there's some some mo Jo that can that can happen there. So definitely I'll. I'll give you guys a heads up if that's happening and and a appreciate a mention if that is the case and maybe when it becomes real, you know shot again Oh. Yeah. Definitely with the mentions and the chatting again definitely. But if anyone else wants to keep up with what you're doing worse than they fall you social media website on. Yeah.

So I don't mind stories that kind of need a little bit of unpacking, but it felt like it was maybe it's very plot driven approach to things. Maybe that's a an output of if indeed inside these companies there is you know dictates of what you can and can't do or you have to get here there with crossovers I don't know i. just feel like just go back to start fresh. Let's take that kind of attitude. would be we didn't really think about it then, but you know you go into an editor's office and new pitch something and they would say. Okay do that and it wasn't the you know a really I cannot think maybe boches lucky but I cannot think of many instances where it was very manufactured in that way there's a little bit of that on some of the the midnight sons of Oh the horror line of characters ghost rider nightstalkers, morpheus of trying to become its own little sub universe But by large you know we'd go in with the story. What do you think of this that sounds pretty cold do that and then if you had a good editor and I was lucky I think I did You know they they'd help you course correction and brighten up the dull spots and and make sure that you you. You stayed on target for we promised to a story. Deadline. To, do you think there's not as much interaction between the writers and editors anymore especially like face to face especially while this year? Well this year we're all stuck right now I don't know Phil I don't I don't I don't have that that inside track I remember meeting a couple years ago just coffee with. You, know one well, well, well, known creator who still in the business and and he was saying he was feeling everything he was doing was very dictated to right. You know it was it was sort of like this is it we're of told with the story has to be it has to go and and and he was clearly a bit frustrated by now he might have been an N. of one but he was a big name is a big name and so I was Kinda surprised. To hear that from somebody of his calibre, think if anybody's GonNa have carte blanche, it's going to be a guy like this but. I don't know about because even in even. You, know you have to figure some of us who were in the New York City area which I like I live in Connecticut so and at and at the time I was doing a lot of marvel stuff. I was other in the city initially I moved upstate New York, a little bit certainly folks like us into the offices but that wasn't everybody. There were certainly many creators across the country and they would deal by phone or Fedex at that point and a lot of great stories came out of it when I was an editor epic comics and I did a lot. Of the work I was with the Brits had worked with a lot of the British craters. So those guys are in different time zone across an ocean and and you you were able to get a lot of stuff going. So I don't know if it's I don't know that it's distance necessarily so much as it's the way people are coming at it or it becomes insular light. That's that's always a danger I think with you know when I worked with Archie, Goodwin who's the lead of a of epic comics and I worked with a lot of what you're sent. grunwald like really. You know a big folks. You know a lot of these people would also come from other places they had they had other influences they love comics, and so they put all their experience and channel on only on comics Sometimes, if all, you've ever done his comics and then you're channeling only stuff at comics that could become maybe inside baseball I don't know I'm guessing. All around and like others there's other companies and you you you kind of run the gamut of those companies back in the day. Oh. Yeah. I wanted to work anywhere could and try to get as many things going and and you know from classics illustrated Moby Dick Thing that he with bills and cabbage to you know Hercules tation for Disney comics I mean it was. No, IT'S A. In Steel Harbor Harvard..

"That was a that was a combination of thinking about the characters and also again having a little bit of a a of a clip file of. Things that someday you know you WanNa do something with, but you don't know what to do with yet. Right so that whole doomsday device, right that's in that story that that whole. I think or ramjet right some a giant flying crowbar that sucks in air and turns into nuclear energy and spits it out the back irradiates and. The land turns into a wasteland. It was an actual thing. You know it wasn't something I made up. It was a project called an unnamed chicken story project Pluto and and so I. Get the these moments and you say there's a story here and an plot at least and so putting the two together as you say, gives you contrast if if there was another wrecking ball character, you put together with the punisher that's not much story. But when you combine them as the way you said it, it becomes something something where you get that contrast get to to build out. So there was a lot a lot of fun to do I always wish Larry. STROMAN had A. At given, me want the one shot, I wanted to the inside of the plane that sort of showed like the mechanism that was the one damage of like writing things and plots style which I described it. But when I got it back, it was it was a shot of the punisher and and Blackwood looking into the plane but not seeing the plane itself. So I think there's actually like a a word balloon that is literally. The punishers, black widow do you see what I see? Yes. Yes monitor the inside of the plane is a is a bomb. But you know those the moments. Riga creative. Yeah, that more chef give out of. I read a lot obviously, I like the punish few I like I just liked that take that she had for him maybe like you also keeping that that frankness of being you know that what I can at one. That's awesome. Thank you. Thank you very much and I love this competent word I'm going to be using this a lot for.

"Yeah. Bags they were they were they were a lot of fun to work with and just. you know you think about the amount of research I try to put into those things to draw them out and I remember barring Ninja books from Carl Potts, who is Very knowledgeable about that Whole error and type of fighting style and group and and thinking through what do we need to do to bring. Characters with these specialties to life and and Certainly, that research paid off at the end of the the root of evil story that whole idea of dipping the the armor in poison. At poisoning your your your enemies as you fight was was a very real Ninja. Tsu. Move that they would sort of play out and things. So you know it's not like just recasting the what they could do but but but being inspired by it, I let storyline especially in that snake ru group and what they went through in that felt to me like it hit on all cylinders than and again looking at it recently I'm really really proud of having played that out. I, mean, like I said really good I thought that was one of the biggest threats you came up with. and then the end. Your end well. I don't know where where would I mean I know the credits and stuff and the end up late with the now the end of the run it's like so you didn't know you're no longer wearing. You know I have been danced dancing around this for years. No real hidden away right now Alan I'm. Talk again. A friend of mine I know I don't know why Allen did what he did But yeah, I mean, it was for whatever reason and whatever. Cowardice Chicanery whatever motivations were right I I was I was the writer on the book I was actually talking actively about. Spinning off other daredevil titles we had other daredevil mini projects were we were talking about doing and and then I was told by The person who was editing daredevil at that time. That the new editor in chief of daredevil because. At. That point split itself up to five editor in chiefs and there were five different groups right? There's a mutant group. There was the maybe I camera with the other one was dared old fell into like the street level hero group, right punit, the punisher daredevil of the characters like that. So, that the editor who I was working with, you called me because I've known her for a long time and and said Yeah. What to tell you this bureau of the book. Out How am I how my off the book if you can't tell me about it? So it was kind of weird maybe it'll just go away sort of thing, and of course, you know I didn't own the book it's worked for higher on one level. That's all what kind of. But you'd expect there to be a discussion of something something at least that's the way I would have handled it when I was an editor so You know, I was partway into that story and what would become know the cruel story and and I was I. I wanted to finish off. They gave me the option to finish it off. I could use the money but at the same time I was probably just feeling like this isn't going to be a great story is not going to go anywhere and Alan Smith IW. For folks who don't know was was typically the the credit a director would put on a film when the director no longer felt that that film had turned out the way they like they liked. So it's Kinda like the Hollywood credit that goes. On a film when the director feels the film's been taken away from them or has turned out in a way and they don't want their name associated with it. So I put it on there as a kind of a an for that reason. But also because you know I had a film school background So as being a little too clever for myself but but you know looking back at the story recently and rereading it. Like you know what I I pulled off. Probably a lot of what I wanted to pull off I think probably were doesn't come together as will what would come next? What would come next in terms of of putting the kingpin back in this position with the quote unquote new dared him or all these things that these other characters had now rediscovered about themselves from that terrible night in that diner what what would we have done with that and I'm sure I, had ideas for that would play that out not just let it be like a one note. Thing. But when you're halfway through something that you think is going to lead to the next thing because bringing the kingpin back in at that stage was certainly starting set the stage of him becoming not the full kingpin of the penthouse again. But but what is he going to do now? What's it to? How's he going to start to play his history level magic but then you're halfway through and you're like alright door want my name on his not want my name on this and so. I, said no but now it really doesn't I. Don't know why do that Yeah I. Remember not I didn't find out about Allen until years later 'cause I remember reading it I, was like who is this? Who is this Alan guys trying to be tied Chester in the worst way? Exactly right. Yeah. So look there's moments of it vetted me but you know probably my my heart was not fully in it and so I again I think it's I think it's It's a reasonable story reasonably executed but but not with the same level of. Of Passion and sort of knowing that this is leading to two one more thing. So. So you don't remember what plans you would have you will you had if you had kept going. Well I know that you know the kingpin yeah. Because yeah you know more of a more of A. Powerful street level operation that was certainly one thing that we were going to continue to do in the bulk and then have him form a new relationship with this new daredevil That was certainly you know what was going to be happening there I. I. Remember that we talked about choose specific miniseries that we were going to do was going to be Because when Ralph Machi was still the editor and before it transferred over into this new universe of editors we talked about almost daredevil grouping. You know we could always have like a couple of three daredevil stories going and one of them was almost a daredevil year to. In John Romy Junior and Frank Miller had done daredevil. You're one in away but we were saying okay. So now, what happens what do you? What do you do now? So we talked a lot about that and then I had this really keen idea thought that was going to do with an artist Paul Ryan. which was essentially a daredevil time travel story where we were going to send daredevil back to and I knew exactly how we're going to do it Getting back I wasn't sure how we're going to get back to the future. But anyhow, we're going back there with some like ruptured antastic for gadgetry. But we were going to send back to Old New York, and the in the eighteen hundreds there was a a corrupt Organization at the at the level of the city government run by a guy named boss Tweed, who essentially was the real life kingpin, and so we're going to send him back to to this to this time error and have him to confront that, and that was another opportunity I thought to play with the senses because the Newark of that era was in a rife with the stink of slaughter houses coming off the you know the river and..

"Well, here's a pinup dare to never flown costume. But. That's what I. Love About. Like street level characters like, yeah. You can fight super villains, but you can do like these small like character piece stories and stuff you know just right. Right. You know that's the thing I think always thinking about veritable at least to me was. You know he's struggled with okay. The there is, of course, the conflict between the lawyer and the vigilante but the unlike some characters, where will you heard there is no Bruce Wayne only Batman Bruce. Wayne is the disguise for Batman or or you know there is no or there's a big demonstrable shift. Between the two when they when they put the costume on you know I think there was a lot more overlap for me at least with Murdoch is daredevil daredevil is Murdoch and I and I found that that was in so he could become and do what he did. No matter what I remember writing the the last issue daredevil I wrote, which was many years after I stopped the regular Ron when tim to we invited me and Lee weeks back to write a story that was the end of the first the first volume for Joe CA- Saito was coming in and so we did this big sort of. Suspects inspired story of all these explosion on this big ship and all the stuff. But I remember writing and in a courtroom scene Matt Murdock saying something and being a competent lawyer for change. But you know originally I think I was writing it. You know you know he said something articulately or he said something and you know in a very nice way or soothing voice, and then I said this isn't right this guy's voice. If I hear it in my head, put you on edge. You know he is dare to even the way he speaks in court you know has to be some quality of of you know what he's doing and I think that's melts with the TV show got right and how they did it. You know he's like he's a bit of a mess even when he's walking around, you'll never really shaves he's like. Five that. Of. oriole foggy carries a lot. Yet. Again. Another one of those stories that the two part at three, twelve and thirteen with the one the the pizzeria arson when he has. Clear. That girl's name and trying to find out who really You know it's like a mystery and again you get the warrior part yet the the vigilante part but I mean really good story and it's just like yet. Again, there's no super violent or is the list of suspects and Yeah rereading it was like it was wondering to myself like why did I make this a super villain or like from bill and with with Ferocious. Fire powers or something But then you know the mindset at that point was well this. This is exactly what you you picked up on right? It's that that sense. Of His living city living the street. So it was it was perfectly in line with what we were trying to do with that time. And again even just like with like we're saying about the spider man team up I mean. I guess could you categorize the surgeon general as super villain but I mean, she was basically just someone like stealing people's gains. Yeah. Yes. She I love the Spiderman stuff in that story in it and I I I think. That was the barker one you know has mentioned that route through the script. Again no because and and you know there was a lot of that urban myth of body organ harvesting storylines probably going around at that time and the media and. And and and you know she had yet super villain as quality certainly she. Know Putting yourself in that outfit and acting in that in that way But there is definitely little too grizzly for my taste now in the in looking back at it not. But the but the Spiderman stuff was was a lot of fun to do. I mean little different especially if the league spider man Fan, but I mean if it was good I'll I was love it because you know they have to go trolling through the nightclubs for. Recruiting recruiting. Peter Parker with a lot of by now. He's just like, yeah. Yeah, you're looking well, we'll three in the nightclubs. Then you know impure Clark Kent Fashion Peter Just like slaps on a mustache as at the skies. A. I'm pretty sure it was like something. You know that I don't know if we'd Scott. Talked about that or maybe just like threw that in there and that would have been one of the things you. Once you start to get into rhythm with somebody you know they start to trade things with you and that was. Because a lot of the daredevils issues fact all the she were probably written in marvel style. We write them as a plot, my plus fairly detailed. So I'd give all the beats but it was then the artist was interpreting a lot of things but sometimes you get back Things you didn't expect and they might add detailer they might break what you thought was going to be one panel into two panels or four panels might become a splash page. So sometimes, your script in your head, you know changes and then sometimes it comes a lot more fun by that discovery Oh yeah I mean especially I and Scott mcdaniel only weeks, but I mean just tell the the machine was working well, because the art was great and you'd get like I said you've got says the scripted with those senses you really build a scene you know the sounds the smells. That's great. Really thank you for again noticing that and and and checking it really appreciate that. Oh yeah, and then again we're we're talked about fall from grace and then. After right after fall from grace you went no slowin down right into another big story they are tree of knowledge. So yeah, I guess we're you a big computer Guy Ottawa's and yeah. I was I was definitely getting. Influences you know definitely flow into the things you're working on, right? So I mean that was a burgeoning. aspect of whatever sub society at that point now, it's clearly where we're living You know full on and looking at that. You know again recently on some things wasn't like I was projecting the future but. I think there's a whole scene between cap and daredevil talking about digital rights and privacy and and such, and you know it's still a conversation more being affected by now but I was I was a big Fan of like Mondo two thousand, which was a magazine about the future. Then wired magazine had just come out and so you know seeing those aspects. How could you can you play those out and make them part of the street and there was a lot of discussion in the things I was reading about how hackers were were street level characters in a way certainly like a William Gibson cyberpunk aspect to that So it felt really interesting to play that out in that whole group of the whole system crash. Villains I enjoyed the hell out of them You know a lot I would would like to have done more with them. I think bring back some aspect to them if I continued on a plane with them later but. Got Me a nice little write up in wired magazine at one point actually was reading this little mini review. Of Comic, book, and I'm saying well, that sounds really familiar and then they got to the end of it. So No daredevil by. I was like Oh. Yeah. wrote that. But. Yeah. I like torches because it was all about the technology, the future, and then you contrast it with Captain America you know basically the man from the past and it's just like, yeah. Yeah there's a lot of really fun discovery with that and and the you know I think some good villains, good scenes good. outwitting of the situations even playing with some of the villainous characters there're member of giving them a little bit more dimension than just simply Oh, they're all. hydrophones, truckers, ornaments. Yeah. That that group was good. But this snake route from fall from grace I thought was that oh? Yeah. One of the one of the best threats you came up with in your run..

"You know. I. Mean. That was like I was talking with a on a different wasn't a podcast guy did a Steve Wilbur got together me and Greg Rice? Marc. Lawrence a few weeks ago and thought it was gonna be an hour long conversation. It'd be like a four hour. Livestream, which was a lot of fun but exhausting. And we're talking a little bit about that scene but. You know that was one of those things where that wasn't in the proposal like at an ad but I have to take down the king could have daredevil. Sleep with typhoid Mary but I think those are one of those things that has a writers like a gift that you get from the universe or your brain in the sense of it was such a wild idea to have such a daring ideas such a the but you if I was to think about it intellectually I never would have done it freight I I was able to do it because I was I was still new I had some talent I was I was and I just let the muse sort of take me in that direction in something that really worked logically. Illogically and paid off I. Think if I thought too much about it, I would have backed off from it freight and but it but it has that moment of saying right away. He is doing something that needs to be done as we get to this end goal Oh. Yeah. I just took. You know in this case I guess the do justify the means because it's like you know. He does get married the help she needs the ANZAC and to it's like you gotta take kingpin how many lives? I'm going to save taking kingpin bright. and. I complimented her Big. Issue Three hundred big battle between daredevil the kingpin in the background in the or is at the bus station. We see Peter Parker and Mary Jane Big Three hundred issue you could have big spider-man jumping in white. You didn't you how it off you know Peter Parker's just like, yeah. Hit him for me. Give. Him One for me. Yes. Them. So well, that's the fun thing about the moral universe right or any any shared universe. If you've got some real moments like that, you can you can bring in the characters and they don't have to suddenly become standalone. You can have that that nod to it which which I think you have to otherwise you you. You become very singular an and you forget about the rest of the world around you. Of Yeah but like I said really good again back on that spider man, you could have the spider man team up although you did get to it eventually. Yeah. Yeah. We we. As everyone know the Spiderman. The Spiderman. Office I. Think. Was Right next to the daredevils office. So that was the always a lot of. Back. And forth in discussion and you know we don't actually have any mandates you know then it was I think as time has gone on and when I've talked to folks who are more involved than I am right now which would be at all because I'm not involved. With that world but I think there's been a lot more. Dictation of your story will go in this direction or you will go in this direction. The the only time we had that was you know, maybe some of the major crossovers that were going on across everything and we had to do a nod to it but in we would want to use characters because they were interesting or sometimes they were. There were sales boosts, right saying let's face it with the nineties. So like the Punisher Spiderman goes driving, what get you extra is on the book yet I, mean, that was that was a challenge we always had was, and that was a lot of a dramatic. Conversations, with the PR folks in the and the in the marketing, folks about listen were not a spider went on a mutant what we need to do to to get some attention on this book, and then sometimes that did lead to Like the de Hands Story was was was manufactured. In a sense of listen if we do a story like this and we cross over some of these characters, will you guys do a little bit more of a push? Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. We'll do that and then we did it and I think we got a little post out it but it didn't it didn't really get the the push, but it was a fun story in those are fun people to work with I. Mean They were Fabian Chuck Dixon. You know we all went out to lunch. We all just sat down and we just kind of mapped out. Here's a here's a story. Here's the people we WANNA use you'll end your piece there. I'll pick up the baton here and and we all we all got along. So it was easy to the Hash something like that amongst ourselves I thought I thought it came out really well, I, mean the up daredevil punisher and no mad NA little favorite town Las Vegas. Yeah. Yeah, yeah, it was and there what that was a chance you know in that particular story remember was right the opening. Got I had matches going. Bugging out because. The, Sensory Overload Vegas and and I had not actually been to vegas at that point but having finally gotten vigorously. For four years ago or so I I definitely. I definitely, I definitely heard the sensory overload even in some of the places I went into. I. I believe 'cause like in a two, thousand seven I, flew out to Vegas for my cousin's wedding and like the minute I like landed I started feeling like I wasn't feeling right and I was thinking oh no. Money. When I went to Vegas I went the wrong way. We GonNa look a kind of like a two week road trip through the southwest. So we spent a lot of time in new. Desert Moab you know grand. Canyon. We're on all these outdoor places. Now we looked around to vegas which was. Cool to see but but we should have gone the other way.

"Round. In. Hurts my heart. Easy to fall back on just always a guy with a gun in a revenge trip and and you don't get go anywhere with it. If. They saw an ethics that such a great job with PTSD that a lot of veterans need. So that they can get help and stuff like that. It's just like, I'd like to see that more in the book. Yet, John Burnt all just personified that on. So many different levels with that that that level of trauma his body language everything about that was Unmistakably you know the character yet and that sheltered daredevil exists because they definitely from a ladder like ninety. Yeah my favorite aired. A lot of people to the nuances of. Air Delay Minded old you blind anywhere read Sue Oh. Oh. Yeah. Well. That was the funny thing watching it. You know my son and you know just came to that conclusion of, yeah. Fog is a pretty awesome lawyer Matt. He's got his moments but in. I don't really know. Lawyer anymore. Do Do you watch do you watch the show like differently after Britain the character for so long just are you just like Oh that's cool. How did that or an opponent did that or you know? It was a really good experience actually watch the show and and and come back into it both as a professional on the character and personally a little bit too because my son was right at the age where he was finally getting to the point where he was enjoying the characters, you'd come up through lot of the marvel cinematic universe stuff and be charged up about that. So earlier on, you know in dad written wrote comics. Wasn't. So interesting to him now suddenly dad comics, there's a character dad wrote and while they didn't necessarily pick up on a lot of the things. I did there was at least one or two I had named the the chased. Group and so then when they when they named check that that was nice and and while the costume they ultimately gave him wasn't the costume that Scott mcdaniel at designed the whole the whole theory we have behind that costume of like you're gonNA. Help. I can swear and I swear on your podcast. Okay. If I just a little bit, you're getting the shit kicked out of you. You know it it's it's okay if you got something aside from Dan Cotton and we took a lot of grief for that when we had that rationale in the in the fall from grace story and so to have him show up in a not body armor but something that was more protective was a little bit of fun little validation. So I, definitely watched it and appreciate it what they were doing thought. They did extremely well as opposed to be in say the Ben Affleck you know movie many years ago where it was like. You're trying to get through the day. Although I did like the shower scene in there with you know where he just be covered at one and you know we spitting out his teeth. Just, he's gotten he's got knocked around quite badly. Yeah. We'll speaking of that suit and Scott mcdaniel I mean I love Scott mcdaniel night wings like my favorite. DC, character over there. So I loved his run in the nineties on night wing I've talked. Other creators. Did you ever observer thing I don't know if it's Alright feel this, but it's like. Ray Story a certain way based on who you have drawing it. Oh, absolutely, if you're in sync with the partner that you're working with that, that's the best thing you do. You know you learn about each other and you learn what you want. What you WanNa do but also what you're good at if you know if an artist hates drawing horses, this is very minor sort of thing you don't you know suddenly put a a western CNN or or you know out the Horse, ranch? Some people do that but you're not playing to the strengths of what somebody does and you're also not playing to the the interest they have. So once you get into a rhythm and I. Had the good fortune working with some really talented people across a lot of the titles I worked on and I think I was pretty simpatico with the relationships that we had. So you get into a rhythm and and you you're able to to play to those drinks and would Scott especially you know think Scott came into his own. If you look at when he came on the book, He had a certain style that he was. Trying out maybe you know it it was more I would say almost cartoony style. Perhaps, and then when he began to explore the lines in the shadows and the weights that he began really on on the fall from grace story, and then he continued through the rest of our time working on the book and then the Electra. Tyler itself I. Think he really he has he would do right I could write a scene and because we had a a level of understanding I, knew how it was going to come to life. So I could then give him certain things that I knew. He would. He really turn into a terrific action, a terrific emotion or or whatever. And and also fall from grace. I also heard like you've been planning for Loud Ping Electra back. Do you remember if they take the exact point was at the beginning of your run where you started thinking about bringing her back or? Well. You know electric was always out there. Right and that was the big thing that was always in conversation and there was A. An, unspoken. Handshake deal I think between Ralph Macho and whose the editor and and Frank Miller that elector would not come back. So we never pressed on it hard electrodes obviously a very strong character and a big part of Matt Murdock daredevil existence in life every now, and again, we'd sort of say, Hey, you know what about them? What about doing some with Elektra maybe not millet it. Let's let's leave that alone plenty of other things to to kind of work with, but it was really So there wasn't a big plan from say you know when we finish three hundred let's start planning on bringing Electra back soon for our next. Maybe big big thing. But it was as we started thinking about what would become fall from grace we're GONNA hit the thirtieth anniversary right by the time we hit fall from grace. the end of that What's what's a big thing we could do and we were riffing on things. We're GONNA of course, knock around. Matt Murdock's life again because why not Or going to do some, you know hopefully, extraordinary things were talk about a new. You know maybe a look for it. Maybe this'll be a springboard for some some other ideas and then in that conversation actually Ralph I think introduced the idea finally you know we were pushing for in Ralph said, well, what about something you know with with? Electra and we said really And and then as we began to think about what the story could be, you know, then that's what That's really the time line for that planning. So probably you know when a restart planning on that three, fifteen, three, fourteen around that time is really when the the real planning began That's when it probably came into real conversation and to me that's As. Much of what the title refers to you know is her as much as anything that happens to to Matt as you put up that big signpost, the axles at three fourteen were Matt having the nightmare about Electra. Okay. So you're telling us she's GONNA come. Clean. Teasing. Jesus something..

"I liked that Yeah. You know it's it's. It's something to to really play out low one story and we did a little bit of this I wrote it. There was this marvel digital comics toward the end of the nineties or maybe the mid mid nineties no called cyber comics. And I got a chance to daredevil story in there that high always wanted to tell in the book, which was really about a condition called. CINECITTA where. It's a a mental condition where the individuals who have this their senses are mixed up. So they feel colors you know they they see sounds like it's crosswired in that way and I always wanted to play with that with daredevil and having get into a situation where you know those things became misfired and miss wired and we touched on a little bit cyber comic but I, was thought that would be a good way to shake him up and and then see how we could reconnect the dots in that way. Ari here. I'll tell you that. Let. Me Do this. Let me. Let me put the character in a coma I can I can coast for months? But? No, I mean all right her all right lilt. Here's a question I. You always say the punishers competent when he's like playing off another character I mean the thank God with daredevil issues the punishers competent. I've competency can be if you've probably allow the. Lake. So like status quo that they have vibrance of the I do like him. Is Your team up. It makes more sense than. daredevil punisher team top punisher teamed up with anybody I think she thinks. The punisher new the team up like spider man used to have just like every because she thinks the punishers written better when he's when he's always playing a different character whether it's daredevil or Spiderman or whoever I would I would agree with that. I mean when I use the punisher, it was it was always with somebody and because he has such a particular worldview you get to. Explore that worldview in contrast with somebody else, which is always a way to to not have necessarily doubt himself his machine in certain ways but you get to explore the themes differently without him just having to doubt himself within his his own world But I found that a rich territory when I got chance to team him up with with a lot of folks on private dribble.

"That's right. We're back for another episode of Cape Lunatics to Me Phil Little Hellfire? Of course, and we have a very special guest. If you've read their devil in the nineties I'm sure you probably have read at least some of issues written by this man he wrote many Mr Digi Chichester Hello Sir. How are you Hello Phil? Hello Lilla. Thank you guys for having me on. It's I, love the I love your podcast of the name your podcast, a lot of fun to be here. Yes some of US Cape some of are lunatics. In Uber Amber Lunatic. Lunatic okay okay. I Love the moon. Anyway. Yes. So I do my homework I. I heard an older podcast with you been trying to do some reading so. I was very interested Psych I. Guess you've. You always wanted to be a writer. Oh, yeah I mean it's it's. It's a curse gift I. Guess You know at a certain point you realize stories or something you can tell yourself by putting some words down and I probably could still find some really godawful. HP lovecraft inspired you know stories that I cobbled together you know and I was very young and and continue on and and hopefully got better but it was it's it's something I've always identified myself with no matter what role I've had ultimately, I always call myself a writer. And the the most interesting thing. For those early years I saw was I guess you were a big DC guy on not even a marvel guy like, oh you. Absolutely it was. My. Brother had marvel comics and he he at one point Ed subscription to a bunch of them but they never struck a chord with me for whatever reason Maybe it's shallow. I would when I would go in my comics run to not even a comic store at that point but just the the local newsstand I would just come back with with bags of DC comics and I like to the characters of the university environment the Justice League Phantom Stranger I mean these were. Characters really resonated with me the the one letter I ever wrote to a comic was to firestorm own and and that was what my mic crew Dresser Drawer Comic Collection I. SMART. ENOUGH TO HAVE A. comic boxes even you know it was just I took all the clothes, stuck them in the closet, and then all the dresser dressers in my room became just all the comics stockton organized. It's funny. You say that yes. As a kid, I had at least two or three treasure trove four. The horror of appreciate your book spoke. Oh. Yeah. No. No I mean they were really well the there were their own space make no mistake. They definitely had everything organized and the little dresser to the side was all the the horror comics and the house of mysteries and the eary's, and over here was very particular. The well-cared-for well-cared I I'm sure. I. Mean I'm sure I had a daredevil tour low I'm Mo- most of them in there were Mr Chichester here is make it damn. Make It. Okay then. All right yes. I just remember you know. When did you start ninety one I was thirteen years old I remember it by the neighborhood poll talk some kids about you know all did you see that last? Did you see issue to ninety three with the punisher Oh yeah. That's great I think. To Ninety, two to ninety three, it was A. was a good one to jump into. We had some good good plans I think executed on on a lot of them. Oh Yeah. and really big Batman Fan girly growing up. Yeah, I, love. Batman. Batman A. Denny O'Neil's Batman. It was a big influence especially as they were shifting things through and then as I got more into comics as many people, do you start to apply into the back issues and then you start to discover even more of the stories that missed the first time around. So close I was lucky enough that my parents would indulge me as we'd go on road trips as I was a kid and then we would find. Again. Not a comic store, but a used bookstore that sort of thing that had piles of comics there was one in Vermont I remember really distinctly of Putney Vermont because we used to go to for summer trips there and this used bookstore Sir store junk store, whatever it was just had a basement full of comics and make them go out of their way to go there, and then I would come back with a new hall in new captured a lot of those were definitely Batman influenced. I mean I could tell well I'll tell I mean I I like the way I I think I've never seen anyone else really do this like there are certain stories where you have that. Daredevil, Matt Murdock kind of like almost. Wiping out the detective skills just like especially with like the hyper-sensitive touch it's like, Oh yeah. Why wouldn't you know I love the senses in the South Academy became such a a big part of of who he is and once you start to play there you know you get into these these whole ideas of what he you From there I mean if you're looking at it from a character point of view, he's nowhere near the level of a detective as Batman is or should be but There's definitely aspects of understanding with those senses. Mean they did a lot of Nice things just rewatch data parts of the Netflix show and they they did some of that on there. I think really well too with those moments where he would hear feel something then connect the dots I thought the handle that really well. Yeah I mean again, I love your writing with those senses. 'cause I think a lot of times in the modern comics forget about some of those sentences or just I. Mean Kaz even to setting the scene of things like if something's on fire and I know you had like, you know he could smell smell like the soot from the fires. Out. All the senses combined and it's just I don't feel. Competent he made him..

G. S. great start here P. E. ratios six verses one old too for the history of price to sales of point six three verses one point two that's good unfortunately I give the price a ten ruble value that's not material but that's the same as the industry going back to press a castle that is positive at four point five below the industry at seventeen point eight now this this is kind of strange I do see eleven point nine percent dividend and the company only uses seventy one percent to pay that out so that could be but a good positive there but I I would often check more that just to make sure because it's so so high on forty sales are down one point seven percent year over year the and she was flat earnings per share last twelve months year over year up two hundred and two percent of the users down seventy nine I do see a nice car ratio three verse one point to that helps with the debit and but told that equity not looking good two hundred and seven there's a seventy six are going to really understand what the debt situation is here because that's not very good start return equity is good twenty point seven versus two point three net profit margin very good ten point five verses one point two and we see we see what over twelve point two verses twelve point six inventory turnover could be a problem here three point one six six point three chase wrote in his going forward I did take a look at the brands real quick as well because I was curious with the the food hold holding company what kind of brands I haven't they have some some good name cherry cream of wheat was on the stand out you know green giant another one that stood out I had just because I remember my mom used to drink it was the the skinny girl martinis and then also he had Weber you know the the grilling come home there's okay that's so you know there seems to be some good names I would want to stand little bit more about where that sales is being broken down among those brands to see you know which ones are doing well where where they buy these brands that and did they overpay for them because you could still get write downs without craft times or in the year with you know Oscar Mayer great company it's a great name well recognized took a huge right down on it so wire stand there kinda acquisition history and what that's look like did they overpay for any of those companies booking the numbers currently as you said John in the current price fifteen dollars ninety eight cents you know it's fallen quite drastically from.
