An Interview With
Zeb Wells!

A Nova Prime Page Exclusive

Mr. Wells took a few moments from his busy schedule to answer some questions about his work on the upcoming New Warriors limited series out in June. I'd like to thank Zeb for giving us his insights on the series, Nova and his role with the New Warriors.

What is the premise of the New Warriors limited series?

The Warriors have been trying to make their own way for the last couple of years. Night Thrasher decides to "get the band back together" as it were. His mission is to get the Warriors back to basics, fighting the villains that slip by the Avengers and X-Men. His goal is to find villains that have retreated into small-town America and bring them to justice. This sounds well and good to the rest of the Warriors, but... For reasons Thrasher is keeping secret he has sold the broadcast rights for the teams adventures to a production company, who is packaging them as a "town improvement" reality show. This, of course, rubs a few of the Warriors the wrong way.

Can you give us some background on yourself, the creative team and what type of experience has it been working with them?

Skottie and I have known each other for a couple of years now. We hang out when we see each other at conventions and have been wanting to pitch something together for a long time. Well, I had done a 7 issue run on Peter Parker: Spider-Man before it was cancelled (not my fault...or was it?) and had worked with John Miesegaes. John Miesegaes got his poor little mind blown by some Venom pages Skottie drew for him, and gave me an excited phone call saying Skottie and I should pitch the New Warriors. After the pitch was approved John moved on to a new job and MacKenzie Cadenhead came on board and helped us hash out the concept even more. I've had a blast working with her. Skottie, on the other hand went ahead and blew my mind just like he had John's with his work for Venom. Skottie demanded plenty of lead time so he could do every aspect of the art, including the colors. I'm telling you, its going to blow people away.

Who will be on the New Warriors' roster?

Night Thrasher, Nova, Namorita, Speedball, and a new character named Microbe. There might be a few surprises down the line as well.

What role will Nova play in the series and how would you describe Nova as a character?

I see Nova as a hero that's really trying to take his game up a notch. He's seen two of his friends go off to become Avengers and he's thinking its time to grow up and live to his potential. This creates a little tension both with Night Thrasher, who is used to being the only one in charge, and Speedball, who just wants to jerk around with his friend.

How much time has passed between New Warriors vol. 2 and your series (in comic time)?

That is, of course, a tricky question, but I'd say a couple of years at least.

Outside of the New Warriors roster, will there be a supporting cast of characters in the series?

Yeah, that's been a fun part of the book. There are two "roadie" type camera guys that follow the team around, plus a slick producer named Ashley Brothers...then there are the dim witted executives Ashley has to deal with. But we're also giving each town, each adventure a tone and life of its own. So while there will be character continuity, each issue will be full of surprises.

How will the New Warriors be different from, say, the Young Avengers or the Teen Titans?

Well it doesn't have any of the lame trappings of the above books, like talented, critically acclaimed writers or commercially viable characters.

The series is recommended for Teens and Up. What caused it to be given the rating?

I think it's just there to give us as much freedom as possible when it comes to themes in the book. Obviously, I don't see the New Warriors as a place for brief nudity and decapitations. I see the rating as a literal "recommendation" as opposed to a warning.

Oh, and Tiger Shark gets his teeth knocked out in issue #1.

Time for a final fun question: Since the Warriors will become TV stars, which real-life Hollywood celebrities would you cast to play the characters in your lineup?

Let's see here...how about a young Denzel Washington for Night Thrasher, young(er) Cameron Diaz for Namorita, Jared Leto (Alexander style) for Nova, that guy who wasn't Keanu from Bill and Ted's Excellent adventure for Speedball and Jack Black for Microbe. Yes, I am in the wrong line of work.
