Loners writer C.B. Cebulski sure knows how to make the interview rounds. CBR News has the latest one. Some excerpts:
“I’ve always had a soft spot in my comic-loving heart for teen heroes and instantly fell in love with these kids,” Cebulski said. “Well, fell in love with them AGAIN would be a better way to put it, as I read all the books starring these characters as they were originally coming out. ‘Power Pack,’ ‘Slingers,’ ‘New Warriors’…
“We get the kids back to their roots as a superhero self-help group who are trying their best to put their pasts as teenage heroes behind them and live normal lives out in L.A.,” Cebulski said. “But once you have their powers, can you ever truly give up the lifestyle? That’s a question they’ll all be struggling with.”
“When some of the Civil War fallout spills over to the West Coast, what will they do?” Cebulski teased.
“Chamber is no longer on the team for various reasons, which I won’t spoil here for anyone who hasn’t read [‘Runaways’],” Cebulski said. “He’s off doing his own thing in X-land now. Mattie ‘Spider-Woman’ Franklin is a character Brian Bendis made me really care about in his run on ‘Alias,’ and given the wringer he put her through, she seemed like someone who could use some fun in the sun in L.A. with this group while dealing with her inner demons.”
