Me and Skottie Young do some talking.

Comic Book Resources just posted a nice little interview with yours truly and Skottie Young. The subject is our upcoming work on Marvel Adventures: Spider-Man, for which I’m doing the writing, and Skottie is doing the covers. I’d largely forgotten about the interview, so I was able to read it “fresh” and I’m fairly pleased to find that I don’t sound like a douche. Every time an interview with me comes out I wonder if I’m going to say something horrible, and then have to hold a conference and say, “Okay… when I said that I like to use small children to club baby seals, what I MEANT to say is…

Anyway… if you haven’t already cheated and clicked on the interview button above, you can click on the Spidey symbol and see what Skottie and I have to say. I’m both excited and pleased by this title, and also want to mention that Matteo Lolli is doing fantastic interior work… so check it out.

Ahh! The Spider Symbol! Wherever this is shown, evil doers know that there is an interview with Paul Tobin and Skottie Young.

    The interview was so cool that I can’t wait to read the first issue… oh wait… I actually can!

    I jumped on cbr to read it and I just have one question for you: Paul, would you like to come visit Bologna?
    heheh But be warned that the house you’re expecting to find looks much bigger in pictures.
    Anyway me and Jacopo are waiting for you whenever you want.

    Skottie is truely perfect on covers: very eye-catching and I love the sketchy style he uses.

    I’m really damn glad you like my work! I’m just a rookie but I hope I’ll do better and better each new book. I love the character and the way you gave him new depth so for me it’s easier to make him act.

    Now… about those bikinis in the park…

    Enough! Back to work now!

    You can even read the SECOND issue if you want! And, yes, Colleen and I would love to visit Bologna. What are good seasons? Colleen and I will probably rent an apartment and stay a week or so. It would be fun to get together with you and Jacopo.

    And… just got back from the park, where I was working on the next issue of Spidey, and watching girls in bikinis play with hula-hoops. A writer’s life for me!

    That would be cool! I think the best season might be spring. Summer if quite hot, winter and autumn so so. Anyway there’s not a “wrong” season so don’t worry (unless you don’t like hot temperatures, if so avoid summer).
    I personally love early spring (and autumn) but you and your wife may come whenever you want we’ll be happy to show you around and make you eat a lot too. You won’t go back home without gaining 3-4 kilos of pure fat.

    1 week might be too much to visit just Bologna so you can plan other trips too.

    Now go back to your park full of bikinis, you writer!

    I HATE hot temperatures, so I will definitely avoid the summer. The only problem is, Colleen and I would want to be there while the girls are in dresses. Much prettier that way.

    3 kilos of pure fat?!! Are you trying to kill me? Who will write Spider-Man when I’m gone?

    And, for us, 1 week might not be long enough for Bologna. Colleen and I like to not just visit a city, but to get to know it, to feel in some ways like we live there. Don’t worry, if we come, we would not bother you the whole time. Are there any comic conventions in Bologna?

    Don’t worry about bothering!! I’ll be more than happy to have you hanging around and show you the city.
    I agree with you: living and breathing a city is the opposite of fast tourism. You see less but you live it to the bone.
    I hate hot too so definitely avoid summer.

    3 kilos AT LAST! unluckily you’ll be walking a lot so you’ll have to keep eating while walking to avoid any weight loss. You’ll be back home as Kingpin Jr.
    Emilia-Romagna (my region) is well known for food, you won’t be disappointed.
