Rick Remender on End League, Fear Agent, Atom and More…
Over at Comic Book Resources, Rick Remender chats it up about his critically praised, post-apocalyptic superhero saga The End League, as well as his other post-apocalyptic saga, the creator-owned Fear Agent series.
"I guess I’m a bit bleak in my worldview. That and I always tend to make sure Earth is in a state of shit,” quipped Remender. “I like post-apocalyptic stories, what are you gonna do? I like hopelessness. It brings out the grit inside a character. Might as well get right to it and see how someone reacts when faced with a stacked deck and insurmountable obstacles. In my shitty opinion, that’s the good stuff. Unlike most books of this nature, these characters are all dealing with the prospect of real extinction that’s always waiting around every corner.”
The eternal optimist, eh? No fear, though. Remender goes on to discuss his work on other projects big and small – literally – including his run on DC’s Atom, as well as an upcoming Ultraman-meets-Truman Show project (his description, not ours) titled Gigantic.
