Hickman: Well, we'll go longer than 5 issues, I can promise that. And we've gotten a massive push from the Marvel marketing team, which has to help. I'll actually find out our numbers this week. I'll know then where we are at. But to answer your specific question, yes, I can pinch it off at any number of places... I'm just not sure that I will if I have to. It's really a question of which serves the property better: A mediocre, manufactured ending or a great unfinished work... Hopefully I won't have to worry about that.
Hickman: It's in the marketing guys' hands now. And we debuted pretty high, so, sure, I think it helped. More than anything else, those kind of things let the bosses see that you'll go the extra mile for a book... that you're invested. They appreciate that.
Think of it like this: Working on books at Marvel is LIFE, and, no doubt, it's a good one, but creator-owned is LIVING. There's a difference.
Kirby – Gratitude.
