When Words Collide: Jason Aaron: The Superpro Years

In this week's "When Words Collide," I grill Jason Aaron on his early years -- what he was like as a student, how he feels about some classic comics of the 1980s, how much he's written about strippers -- and talk about his approach to his craft.

If you ever wondered how Jason Aaron feels about "NFL Superpro," which great authors influenced him, or what he has planned for the upcoming year of "Scalped," this is the only interview you'll ever need.

Check it out: "Jason Aaron: The Superpro Years."

Laugh if you must, but SuperPro was a seminal work for me in my younger days.

And I would totally buy/steal/write a revamp.

I'll click any link if it promises NFL Superpro.

Also, Tim: I'm not sure where I fall into your categorization of English Majors--I love literary theory, Science is Hard, and I usually speak up only when we're talking about Theory, but usually zone out when we talk about mundane things like plot and characterization.

How did you know which one was which? Didn't that get confusing? You're both bald, you're both Vertigo writers ... Oh, so many issues!

Good interview. So far, all I've read from Aaron is his 3-part Black Panther arc, which I thought was great. I need to keep my eye on him.

Oh, yeah. And where I fall in on the English major scale... Secret Smartypants.
