Some of you will be aware that my favourite character is USAgent. Some of you may also be aware that I run the worlds pemier (read *only*) USAgent fan page, and also edited a large part of his wikipedia page, and that one of USAgents key series is 'New Invaders' (also one of my favourites!)

Well, a few weeks ago I reached out to the writer of New Invaders - Allan Jacobsen - to ask him whether he would be willing to be interviewed regarding his time on the book, and to my absolute delight he agreed!

Not only is Allan one of the nicest and most accommodating people i've ever had the pleasure to speak to, he also gave me an interview of a depth and detail beyond my wildest expectations.

If youre a fan of Allan's work, a fan of Marvel comics, a fan of the Invaders/New Invaders, or a fan of USAgent or any of the other characters that starred in the series, then this is not to be missed!

Theres also a lot of Allan's insights into the industry here, including his feelings on subjects like politics and diversity in comics, his experiences of working within the industry, and even a hint about who might *really* have created the Winter Soldier!

You can find the interview (its a long one!) by following the link to the USAgent Facebook page below. Its a public page, so everyone should be able to read it.

And in the words of Allan himself :

"Do the right thing. Be kind. It’s easy to be angry. It’s easy to be petty. It’s heroic to stand against all the cynicism and try to be kind."


That was a really good interview. A little depressing. The poor guy had a terrible experience.

Stories like that make me glad I never really tried to be a comic book writer. I could never have tolerated all the stupid editorial nonsense.
