“I am very glad I was able to tell this story in almost exactly the way I had always planned,” Nicieza told Comic Book Resources in a recent interview. “I knew who I wanted Adam to be, and I think this story will give readers a chance to see that. It’s a ‘big’ story that is also very intimate, sad, tragic and hopeful all at the same time. And it’s also got a tremendous amount of crunchy cool fun, as well!”
