â€œI was very excited!â€ exclaims J. Scott Campbell, thinking back to the moment when industry-leader Marvel Comics offered him his own exclusive contract. â€œIâ€™ve been a huge fan of all things Marvel ever since I can remember! And after ten years in the business, Iâ€™m thrilled to have some real fun with these characters Iâ€™ve loved since I was a kid!â€
Campbell, the fan-favorite artistic force behind the ultra-popular GEN 13 and DANGER GIRL series, and the current project WILDSIDERZ, was roped into the Marvel stable by an offer he simply could not refuse: to work on a new, ultra-secret project alongside award-winning writer Jeph Loeb.
â€œThat was a killer combination I just couldnâ€™t say no to!â€ enthuses Campbell.
â€œIâ€™m going to be working on my absolute favorite Marvel character right out of the gate. And I seem to also be getting quite a bit of creative input on the project, so I couldnâ€™t be happier!â€
The good feelings are mutual, when it comes to Campbellâ€™s new partner, Jeph Loeb. â€œWhen I first came to Marvel,â€ explains the scribe, â€œJoe Quesada asked if I was interested in a certain character. I told him if we could get this ONE guy to draw it, I was in.â€
â€œJ. Scott Campbell has waited his whole life for this gig and Iâ€™m thrilled to be the writer who creates the story heâ€™ll illustrate. Weâ€™ve talked about this project in general – too soon to talk about story – and, just as fans, we see the characters EXACTLY the same…as if weâ€™re finishing each otherâ€™s sentences! Canâ€™t wait to see what Jeff creates!â€
â€œThis is gonna rock!â€
â€œYes, Jeph and I have been brainstorming a lot about the overall tone weâ€™d like to take with the series and which villains and guest stars weâ€™d both like to see,â€ adds Campbell. â€œItâ€™s in the very beginning stages right now, but I already love what weâ€™ve been discussing!â€
â€œI think the fans are in for a great ride!â€
