Today’s Wizard interview between Bendis and Brevoort supplies the kind of juicy historical details that you used to find in old issues of the Comics Journal:
BREVOORT: That all sorted itself out and sort of turned itself around, but I was still very much in shellshock territory. It was about as bad over a period of time, though not as concentrated, as ax-chopping day. There was a period of time there where walking into work every morning I was thinking, “One of two things is going to happen today. Today is either the day where I have a massive heart attack and die from all the stress and all the crap that I’m carrying around, or today is the day that I completely wig out and kill someone.”
Much, much more in link about Harras, Jemas, Dissassembled, and all the other great events of our time.
