"Believe me when I say that unless I was going to slavishly reproduce Fleming's Bond I was always going to get knocked simply because I wasn't Fleming."
When 'Thanos Rising' was announced, I wrote: I will buy it. Partly because Im curious, partly because I like Jason Aarons writing, partly because it seems like the sort of thing that would break my internet silence after less than three months. But, lets not kid ourselves: this is clearly the broken memories of one of the defective clones of Thanos. Sorry. That doesnt mean it cant be good. It just means that if youre not Jim Starlin, youre writing about a clone. I stand by that today.
