Marvel announces “X-Termination” event, which includes Greg Pak’s “X-Treme X-Men”


Greg Pak’s reality hopping comic book “X-Treme X-Men” joins Marjorie Liu’s “Astonishing X-Men” and David Lapham’s “Age of Apocalypse” for a 2013 crossover story called “X-Termination.” Check out an excerpt of the Marvel.com interview:

Marvel.com: Greg, picking up things in X-TREME X-MEN #12, how do alternative Charles Xaviers figure into this story?
Greg Pak: Dazzler and her X-Treme team have been on an insane mission to kill 10 evil alterna-Xaviers before they bring ruin upon the multiverse. In this storyline, we’ll finally find out exactly what threat the Xaviers represent and whether the Xavier Head in a Bottle who’s been guiding the team is a villain or a hero. Most importantly, we’re going to find out whether Dazzler’s finally going to cross that line and risk her own soul in order to fulfill her responsibilities as a leader.

Filmmaker Magazine interview with Greg Pak and Karim Ahmad about the “Vision Machine” app


ITVS’s Karim Ahmad interviewed “Vision Machine” writer and director Greg Pak about the “Vision Machine” project. Here’s an excerpt:

Ahmad: But what I love about the Vision Machine app is that it’s really testing the limits of what is usually considered “acceptable” functionality for a digital comic. Like the fact that you include a complete voice and music soundtrack!
Pak: Yes! That was key for me. Many digital comics have musical scores, but we might actually be the first out of the gate with a full voice soundtrack.
We also wanted to include some really substantial extras and a social media interactive element. So throughout the story, there are “IRL” buttons that you can tap to bring up videos of real world luminaries (including internet superstar Jonathan Coulton) talking about the ramifications of the story’s themes and ideas. And you can enable a Twitter stream that shows you tweets that use the #visionmachine hashtag. We’re planning to use that Twitter stream to do virtual events, like panels or Q&As, that you can follow live in the app.
