Bendis interviews Whedon

Maybe talking to people who can actually write will rub off on him.
 
Thats not completely fair... Whedon is only doing x-men last I checked. Bendis is doing all of marvel in a nutshell... well more than he should be doing anyway.

Whedon also writes Buffy, Angel, and soon to be some more Firefly comics for Darkhorse, and has been writing for TV and movies since the 80s. Hell, he one an oscar for co-writing Toy Story.

Boy, that Bendis hate didn't take long, haha.

Wow, really interesting interview. I'm not a big Joss Whedon fan but the guy has a good head on his shoulders.
 
Heh, nice interview.

And I just added that Battlestar Galactica miniseries to my Q at Netflix before I read it. Not that Whedon's opinion means anything, just an odd coincidence.

I bought the first season of Veronica Mars because Whedon told me to.:(

Why aren't you a big Jossteraholic? Didja never dig Buffy or Angel? Did Astonishing not do it for you?:confused: I just like to know how someone could possibly not want a replica statue of Joss to touch, and be touched by.
 
Joss Whedon gave me Firefly/Serenity, therefore I will never hate him. Other than that, cool interview. Glad to see the BSG love.

Veronica Mars Rocks!!:up: (COMICBOY Starts singing theme song...)
*A long time ago... we use to be friends...*
 
Bwahahaha he mentioned Storm's line to Toad in X-Men, that's awesome :D:up:

EDIT: Bendis' bit about Collosus is hilarious :D
 
BENDIS: Are you dressed as Wonder Woman?

WHEDON: Occasionally.

BENDIS: Okay, because that was the other rumor.

WHEDON: Whatever it takes to get me in the mood.

Whedon is God. :)
 
Bendis can write, he just can't write superhero stories. He's a very good crime noir storyteller, just keep him away from expansive superhero tales.
 
BENDIS: It’s always fun to have one person annoying the sh** out of everybody else in the group.

WHEDON: Yes, that’s important. I call that “Cordelia.”


ha.:D
 
i liked Cordelia... in angel... after the first season... right before she died.
 
I don't like Whedon's politics too much, but he is a hell of a smart guy and a FANTASTIC writer. I loved his three tv shows (not a fan of Serenity though :( ), I mean absoloutly loved, and loved his comic work in Fray and 80% of it in astonishing. The guy is a writing masterclass and a generally nice guy from all I have seen.


Again, too, I dont get the Bendis hate. He's not my cup of tea, he's fairly mediocre, but some of you people make out his work is complete trash, like he's the comic uwe boll or something.
 
seriously I can't bear people coming in here and hating on Bendis just because his name is in the title of the thread. We all know that everyone has an opinion on his writing, but c'mon, is this thread really about why we hate or respect his writing and what percentage of his writing we hate or respect. No. This thread is about two wordy writers gettin' it on wordy-style. And it is arousing.

Hey thanks for that. THANKS A LOT BUDDY. I might as well slit my own wrists on my yet-to-be-watched season 4 Angel discs. BALLS!!!!:mad::(
 
Cordelia is kinda butchered in season 4

I did the same thing. Then I downloaded the second season because I couldn't wait for it to come out on DVD.
