: Dortmund, Germany:

1) What is your favorite comic book and why?

Probably Astonishing X-Men. Great dialogue, beautiful character development, some

seriously interesting subtext in the first arc and the heartbreaking finale make this book

one of the best X-Men stories ever told and my personal favorite.

2) If you could have one superpower what would it be?

I’d love to be a healer.

3) What comics makes you happy?

All X-Men books make me happy, because they’re about tolerance. But I also love reading

stuff like Saga, so that really makes me happy, as well.

4) Which comic book characters do you most admire?

Probably Kitty Pryde and Cyclops.

5) Which comic book characters do you most despise?

I’m not a big fan of Wolverine or Captain America, and I never got behind the hype around


6) What is the quality you most like in a creator (writer or artist)?

The ability to write a thrilling, thoughtful and emotional story that stays in my mind.

7) Which words or phrases do you most overuse?


8) Which comic book character would you most easily fall in love with?

Probably Kitty Pryde.

9) Which creator talent would you most like to have?

Writing has always been something I liked to do in my free-time, but I always wanted to be

able to draw (which I’m horrible at!).

10) If you were to die and come back as a person or a thing (character or creator), what would it


Well, hopefully not another reincarnation of Jean Grey.

11) What fictional universe would you most like to live in?

Most of the fictional universes I love, I wouldn’t necessarily want to live in, because, let’s

face it, they’re just incredibly dangerous. But I love the world of the X-Men.

12) What comic is your most treasured possession?

I really love my Uncanny X-Force Omnibus.

13) What do you most value in your friends?

Honesty, sense of humor and common sense.

14) Who are your favorite writers?

Joss Whedon, Mark Millar and Rick Remender.

15) Who is your hero of comic book fiction?

Peter Parker has always been a true hero to me.

16) Which comic book figure do you most identify with?

I wouldn’t say there’s any comic book character I really identify with, for me, comics books

are not really a means of identification, it’s more about the message behind it (and I do

look up to certain characters or find them awesome).

17) Who are your heroes in real life?

My best friends.

18) What is the comic book that you most dislike?

The New 52 Teen Titans book was pretty horrible.

19) What comic storyline would you most like to change?

Storylines that started great but ended up being resolved by time-travel.

20) Which comic book character do you think should die a permanent non-comic book death?


21) What is your personal motto?

“The way the world sees you isn’t nearly as important as the way you see it. And the things

you do to make it better.”
