[IMGL]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v647/icycleman/Heinberg.jpg[/IMGL] From an interview on Wizarduniverse.com:



"Allan Heinberg would love to tell you some fun quirky story he experienced recently, but he can't. He would love to talk about wild party moments of late, but he hasn't had any. He's been chained to his desk for the past few weeks, juggling his workload as a producer for TV's "Grey's Anatomy" and his writing duties on DC's Wonder Woman.

He did, however, pull himself away (even if it did take a hacksaw and a spatula to do it) long enough to reminisce about the first volume of Young Avengers, what went right, what went wrong, and what he would change.


WIZARD: What were you doing right before Marvel approached you to do work for them?

HEINBERG:
I was a writer and producer of "The O.C." on Fox.

Tell us about how you got the Young Avengers gig.

HEINBERG: Mike Cotton interviewed me for Wizard Magazine about the show's onscreen comic book obsession, and shortly after the article appeared, Marvel got in touch and asked if I'd ever had any interest in writing a comic book.

How did you go about creating each character, and what gave them a voice?

HEINBERG: I did a lot of Avengers-related research, thought a lot about team dynamics and teen archetypes, and then tried to imagine the kind of team I'd enjoy reading about."

Pretty awesome interview. Everything he said made sense. Glad to hear that we'll be seeing more.



On a sidenote---I've never seen him before and the first thing I thought when I saw him was that he looks incredibly like Methos from the Highlander TV series. Or Eric Bana.
 
I just got two tpbs (well, one was a HC) of YA from the library. The first one had issues 1-6, and the second one has issues 7-12 and the YA special. I'm just about to start reading the second volume now.

I just want to know if there have been any further Young Avengers comics released besides these 13. Besides the Runaways crossover, which I refuse to read because everyone says it was awful.

Thanks for the help.

I'd be the first to let you know, and there hasn't been any released since then. I don't know how I missed this thread ever.
 
Damn! When I read that vol 2 would come early 2007, I got all excited until I realized the date of the article.

I WANT MY YOUNG AVENGERS!
