His dry sense of humor coupled with his expansive imagination on powers, super or magic or mutant, blows my mind. I love pretty much all the characters—how complex and authentic they read. I also love how Hayes’ writing often gets you to examine your own inherent prejudices. Who are the monsters? Where are the lines between good guys and bad guys? And the big question: what’s really important in life?
