comScore Mark Millar | John McClane | The Mary Sue

He’s the Best at What He Does, But What He Does is Shout “Yippee-ki-yay, [email protected]*#er!”

These comic book characters are more interesting than your regular action heroes. It would be very hard now to go back to Bruce Willis as John McClane in Die Hard unless he was popping claws like Wolverine or started climbing up the wall like Spider-Man.

Mark Millar on the power that realistic special effects have given (his?) super hero movies.

For the record we think that John McClane would kick Spider-Man’s pansy ass and that he and Wolverine would probably get along disturbingly well.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
