    In discussing this book, Corben has revealed that he, Way, and editor Axel Alonso constructed the story in the "Mighty Marvel Manner", which essentially means that Way constructed a basic outline, Corben drew the issue, and then Way filled in the dialogue afterward. This certainly isn't a common approach anymore, and for good reason. Perhaps in a misguided attempt to make the writing stand out in this art-centric comic, Way has needlessly burdened the script with unusual narration and pointless homoerotic humor.
