5 MINUTES (ABOUT HUNTER KILLER) WITH... MARK WAID!

You all know Mark Waid, right? Great writer, one of the best, the FF's never been better since Lee, Kirby and Byrne.etc. Well, we're re-presenting Mark as an interview subject this week because he's one half of the latest collaborative firestorm behind the biggest comic book series of 2004 and 2005 - Hunter Killer!

HUNTER/KILLER #1 DF EXCLUSIVE ALTERNATE COVER - SIGNED BY MARK WAID AND MARC SILVESTRI
DF: How did you hook up with Marc Silvestri on Hunter Killer?
MARK WAID: We've been talking for years about working together and our doing something more collaborative and productive than our typical interaction, which has been mutual admiration for one another's work followed by my then flirting with his wife for an hour. It's entirely possible that Marc wants me doing this just so he can keep a better eye on me, but I'd like to think it's because we acknowledge each other's creative skills, as well.

DF: Where did the Hunter Killer idea come from?
MARK WAID: Marc had the basic idea -- what if the true weapons of mass destruction weren't nukes or nerve gas but, rather, super-human beings -- and they've gone rogue? From there, I was invited to toss ideas around about how to make that into a series of stories, and Marc and I together (as I recall) hit upon the notion of making H/K, at core, a buddy book about hard moral choices and their consequences.

DF: Sell us on the series as a whole.
MARK WAID: Beyond the fact that it's got the most astounding Silvestri artwork in years, Hunter-Killer is a great read. Through the eyes of Ellis, a young man whose entire world is turned completely upside-down and inside-out by the end of issue one, we're introduced to a world of intrigue, danger, sex and adventure that secretly co-exists with our own -- one in which, we promise you, you'll never be completely sure at any time who the good guys and the bad guys are.

DF: How long are you committed to the project?
MARK WAID: I'm certainly not going anywhere. This is turning out to be a great working relationship.

DF: What's your reaction to the .25 cent issue? This is your second retro-priced comic (the first being an issue of the Fantastic Four price at .9 cents]. Any thoughts?
MARK WAID: Really, truly, whatever gets the story into the hands of as many potential customers as possible is fine by me. Good, nervy call on the Cow's part!

DF: Cast the Hunter Killer movie
MARK WAID: Okay: Ellis -- Benjamin McKenzie. Wolf -- Clive Owen. Samantha -- Krista Allen. (Krista, if you're reading this, call me. You left an earring last time.)

DF: Who wins in an arm-wrestling match, you or Silvestri? You or [DF] President Nick Barrucci?
MARK WAID: I can take Marc easily just by picking the right moment to kick his broken foot under the table, but Nick is a bulldog. He ain't givin' up. Besides, how do you think he's been getting me to sign all this product over the years...?
