Quesada interview in Abercrombie & Fitch

by  in Comic News Comment

Official Press Release

The new Summer Issue of A&F Quarterly, the Abercrombie & Fitch clothing
catalog/magazine currently making headlines, features — alongside
interviews with the likes of “It” celebrities such as actress Scarlett
Johansson (“Ghost World”), author Tom Robbins (Even Cowgirls Get the Blues),
and rockstar Andrew W.K. (I Get Wet) — a profile of Marvel Editor In Chief
Joe Quesada.

The two-page feature, written by “X-Men” executive producer Tom DeSanto,
examines Quesada’s role in leading Marvel back to the #1 spot in comics,
saying “As editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics, he’s presided over a stunning
creative renaissance that’s put Marvel firmly on top of it’s once-flagging
industry — and he’s done it by being one of the most outspoken guys the art
form’s ever seen.”

This issue of A&F Quarterly, distributed throughout the Abercrombie & Fitch
chain of clothing stores — and mailed to thousands of subscribers — has
recently generated headlines of its own for featuring nude models. But as
A&F Quarterly editor Scott Collins sees things, comic books deserve to be
mixed in with whatever is pushing people’s buttons: “Our attitude is that we
take comics seriously and we know they’re as intelligent and funny and
controversial and sexy and avant-garde as anything else we cover, whether it
be music or literature.”
