* SpiritualAntithesis: His creator-owned titles have a tendency to be explicit critiques of other works. In particular, ''ComicBook/{{Uber}}'' is a deconstruction of the "UsefulNotes/WorldWarII would have been '''awesome''' with [[StupidJetpackHitler superheroes]]" sub-genre, and ''Three'' is an exposé of the actual brutality and inhumanity of the culture of ancient Sparta that was idealised in a certain famous graphic novel by Creator/FrankMiller. ''The Wicked and the Divine'' is, according to WordOfGod, a deliberate self-Spiritual Antithesis to ''Phonogram'' - ''Phonogram'' was about the relationship that fans have to recorded music with the actual artist being [[DeathOfTheAuthor wholly irrelevant]], while ''The Wicked and the Divine'' is completely about the relationship between fan and artist and fans as would-be artists.

* AuthorAppeal: Pop culture, especially pop music. ''ComicBook/{{Phonogram}}'' is a love song to Britpop and ''YoungAvengers'' is full of pop culture references.

** He's not shy about his love of
pop music. music, and almost every title he's written has an "official" soundtrack. ''ComicBook/{{Phonogram}}'' is a love song to Britpop and ''YoungAvengers'' is full of pop culture and music references.



* BrokenBase: Similar to his friend and fellow writer Matt Fraction, he's gained something of this with his work on ''YoungAvengers'' and ''IronMan'' for ''Comicbook/MarvelNOW''. Both are either clever, fun books, or pretentious drivel, while he himself is one of the best writers out there or an overhyped hack. It appears this is partially the result of HypeBacklash, though.
