The Archer Vice star shares how the X-Men helped her grow up, what's ahead on the show and much more!

You probably know Aisha Tyler as an actress, comedian, talk show host, author or a mixture of all of the above. But did you know she’s also a comic book fan? We recently caught up with her to see what has been going on with voicing Lana Kane on “Archer Vice,” how the X-Men had an effect on her life and much more! You’ve mentioned before that you were into comics. How did you get into them in the first place?

Aisha Tyler: Well I was a very lonely child with a very small trickle of friends. That’s how it started [Laughs]. I grew up without a television; I was a big reader. I loved books. I was really into fantasy and sci-fi as a kid. Kind of an obsessive flashlight under the covers, sit on the bus until you look up and realize that you missed your stop two hours ago kind of reader. I’m always a curated enthusiast so I don’t love everything. But when I was a teenager it was Teen Titans, X-Men and then Watchmen and those were the three books that I read exclusively. My mom just moved and I was going through all the stuff she saved of mine and [Laughs] I found all these super early editions books from my early collection, which was really fun to do. And I bid them all like a gold doubloon to see if they were worth money.

X-Men Master

X-Men Master Were they worth anything?

Aisha Tyler: They’re definitely worth something. Oh wow.

Aisha Tyler: Yeah, I’m pretty excited about it. What made you get into the X-Men?

Aisha Tyler: Storm. That seems like a little up the middle, right? But I think the thing about X-Men that I loved other than I was finally seeing myself in a comic book was I think every nerdy loner kid wants to be a super hero. I mean that’s kind of a fantasy for all kids but I think if you’re an outsider, there’s a part of you that wants to like beat up the bad kids and save the kids that are being bullied and save yourself from being bullied and you kind of see the injustice in the world because some of it’s being inflicted on you. So I always had a super hero fantasy when I was a kid and I think also because X-Men had this whole kind of outsider-ship. There was this whole kind of mythology—these kids were the rejects, you know? And I’ve been six-feet-tall since I was like eight and I was the only black kid in my school. I was super, super nerdy, super bookish, my parents were vegetarians, I was just in every way, like every possible way that I could be a pariah, I was. There was not one factor that I didn’t hit. I ate weird, I was poor, I was the only black kid, I was a giant pest, I loved comic books, I loved [Ray] Bradbury. There was just no way I wasn’t hitting the nerd button. And so for me, X-Men, this is a collection of misfits and they’re gonna save the world and I loved that mythology and I still love it to this day.

Storm by Ron Garney

Storm by Ron Garney What’s it like now for you since the nerd thing is kind of in?

Aisha Tyler: It’s great because in some ways this is happening on a ground level and popular culture just finally caught on. The thing that I love about it and I talk about on my podcast all the time is that the embrace of the nerd is really an embracing of authenticity. You know what I mean? The thing with nerds and the thing with me when I was a kid was at some point I realized I was never gonna be accepted and so I stopped trying. And there’s a freedom in that and that freedom is to be yourself and to stop trying to alter your behavior, your looks, the way you talk, your interests to get people to like you and when you can really fully embrace who you are however odd or misshapen, that’s when you fully inhabit your identity and it makes you, I think, braver and less needy. And so for me it sucked to be this kid that just would play alone all the time and would laugh through a compendium of sci-fi stories in a weekend, and would go to the library for fun on a Saturday and spend the whole day there looking at pathology picture books, or go to the movies at 11 in the morning. I would buy like a matinee ticket at 11 in the morning and stay at the theater all day by myself watching movies, playing video games in between movies, then seeing another movie. That was a big Saturday for me. But you know to me, that was my time to dream and it’s probably a part of why I’m in this business. And I feel like what that is, is that’s a celebration of individuality and a celebration of singularity and uniqueness. And so that’s why I love this, as false as it may be for a lot of people; like this idea of the rise of the nerd, I think it’s the idea of individuality and uniqueness is more important than fitting in and being a part of the crowd. So I love that part of it and it’s a terrible misappropriation of the whole concept of “it gets better” but it does get better. You know? And everything that made me sad as a kid made me tough as an adult.

Aisha Tyler recording Archer Vice

Aisha Tyler recording Archer Vice Now let’s talk about “Archer Vice.” You guys have kind of taken a bit of a 180 this season.

Aisha Tyler: Well you know Isis has always been in its own way an outsider organization. I wasn’t shocked when we found out they were gonna be disavowed by the government. They’ve always been a little bit of a janky operation [Laughs] but at the same time they’ve also been very good at what they do. It’s been really fun for me, because whenever people ask me to kind of describe the show I always say it’s kind of like James Bond meets “The Office.” It’s really an office workplace comedy and so what holds these people together isn’t espionage, it’s just their relationships with each other and their desperation and their kind of fringy aspect of the way that they move through society. So it’s been really fun. I mean they’ve always been completely unscrupulous and now we just know exactly how unscrupulous. But the fact that all bets are off this year and they’re trying to make money by selling cocaine is one of the biggest jokes of genius ever.  And it’ll be really interesting to see if they try to come back in from the cold, what they try to do, if they try to go legitimate. It’s an amazing season and I think people are really going to love it right up to very last moment, which was pretty extraordinary.


Archer I’ve asked the other cast members what they hope for with their character. For example, Amber Nash said she hopes Pam gets fat again. What do you hope to see from Lana in the future?

Aisha Tyler: Yeah, Pam is hotter when she’s fat. I agree with Amber.  What do I hope from Lana? I mean, it’s really hard for me because I think Lana took a really grownup step to become a mother but I don’t want her to stop being a badass. So I’d like for her to find a way to continue being badass and also be a good mother. I happen to think those two things are at odds, so I think it’s gonna be really interesting to see her navigate. She’s gonna have to figure out how to have it all, which I think we finally discovered is impossible. So we’ll see, you don’t want her to be Malory [Archer]. You don’t want her to become that kind of a mother. It’s gonna be pretty interesting to see if she can stay in the field and duck live fire and also nurture her child, her impending child. So she’s screwed!  I don’t know how she’s going to manage all this. I can barely make a lunch for myself in the morning. So I have no idea how she’s gonna manage that while also packing TEC-9s. But if anybody can do it she can do it.

Flip through the covers for the final issues as the hunt concludes!

This August, the final issue for each HUNT FOR WOLVERINE limited series will hit stands, concluding this breathless chapter in the frantic search for one of the most fearsome super heroes in history.

In WEAPON LOST #4, ADAMANTIUM AGENDA #4, CLAWS OF A KILLER #4, and MYSTERY IN MADRIPOOR #4, the long Logan labyrinth will finally be unraveled, leaving those who seek Wolverine reeling as they contend with the past, present, and future of the Weapon X.

Get an exclusive first look at the covers for each series’ issue #4 below, along with editor Jordan D. White‘s take on what to expect as we uncover more in the deadly puzzle that is HUNT FOR WOLVERINE.

HUNT FOR WOLVERINE: WEAPON LOST #4 cover by Giuseppe Camuncoli, Roberto Poggi, and Federico Blee

Charles Soule has cooked up a fun detective story for this series, with Daredevil and his investigative team on Logan’s trail. They definitely find something interesting…but not something they’re gonna like.”

HUNT FOR WOLVERINE: THE ADAMANTIUM AGENDA #4 cover by Giuseppe Camuncoli, Roberto Poggi, and Val Staples

“Logan’s new Avengers pals made him a promise that now they’re being called on keep. Tom Taylor really came up with a super hero adventure with some great twists and turns—I don’t know that anyone would guess where this series would end up! But it’s a helluva ride!”

HUNT FOR WOLVERINE: THE CLAWS OF A KILLER #4 cover by Giuseppe Camuncoli, Roberto Poggi, and Carlos Lopez

HUNT FOR WOLVERINE: MYSTERY IN MADRIPOOR #4 cover by Giuseppe Camuncoli, Roberto Poggi, and Morry Hollowell

“With this series shining a spotlight on the ladies of the X-Men it probably won’t shock you to learn that it will have a huge impact on the X-Men at-large…but it will shock you what that impact is! Jim Zub is doing something I’ve been hoping for for a long time…”

Will The Odds Be In Your Favor? Read On To Find Out!

Sure, you could say Deadpool is having a huge summer. Don’t underestimate Neena Thurman, and don’t think of her as only Deadpool’s teammate.

Imagine being able to control your fate, just by participating in the cause and effect of a situation. That’s the life of X-Force’s own Domino. The psionic mutant flips the odds in her favor with telekinesis resulting in good luck for her, bad luck for her foes. Not a bad ability to have in tough situations.

While her real name is Neena Thurman, here she goes as Beatrice, seeing as how her existence is the result of a government breeding program called Project: Armageddon that used the precognitive mutant named Beatrice. The name Beatrice is an offshoot of the Latin “beatus” which means fortunate, and that is an apt description of Domino’s powers.

Read up on the what makes Lady Luck’s fate always err on the side of good fortune.

From Domino to Wolverine, these are Wade Wilson's finest duos!

In celebration of Deadpool’s big summer, which sees him kick off a new series with Skottie Young and Nic Klein’s DEADPOOL #1 on June 6, we thought we’d look back at the rare moments when Wade Wilson wasn’t being an unshowered good-for-nothing selfish jerk. Instead, we found a few favorite moments when he was just being an unshowered good-for-nothing only slightly selfish jerk.

Here are the greatest Deadpool team-ups in history.

Child Bullseye

Child Bullseye? More like Calfseye, right? No? Okay. Please keep reading.

Starting off small, we have adolescent Bullseye, who teamed up with Deadpool in a rebellion against academia. In the pages of Daniel Way and Paco Medina’s DEADPOOL, a young, downtrodden Bullseye was being bullied at school. But don’t worry, weirdo pimple-faced nerds! Cousin DP came to the rescue by just straight up burning down the entire building.

This whole event may have been a hallucination, but with Deadpool you never know. What we do know is that these two eventual frenemies delightfully took things way too far in this (potential) first ever team-up. Arson rules! *

Wolverine/Old Man Logan

These two just can’t seem to get away from each other. Or at least Wolverine can’t get away from Deadpool.

Much like any relationship founded in love (of stabbing bad guys) and understanding (their boiling, uncontrollable rage), these two crazy kids have endured a lot together: multiple murder attempts, poorly thought-out heroics, and the 1990s. But, as perfectly exemplified in DEADPOOL VS. OLD MAN LOGAN, they continue to grin and bear it (Deadpool grins and Wolverine bears it).

Official ‘ship name: Poolverine. Don’t look up the “fan art.”


Once a prized dairy cow named Bessie, Hellcow’s idyllic life was cut short—sort of—when a bite from Dracula himself turned her into an undead blood sucking bovine. Roughly 300 years later, in DEADPOOL TEAM-UP #885, Hellcow was serving as the captive mutant milk machine for Dr. Killgore, a mad scientist who was also holding the Regenerating Degenerate under lock and key.

After Deadpool convinced Hellcow to band together for a daring escape, the duo endured a range of bodily function mishaps before succeeding in taking down Killgore. They’re not saying “Moo,” they’re saying “Bruuuce!”


Just like a group of old men sitting around a folding table, Deadpool loves dominoes. And one in particular.

A hired gun herself, Neena Thurman knows all about the #MercLife, not to mention the #MutatedExperimentLife. And after a rocky introduction in Deadpool’s debut comic NEW MUTANTS #98, Domino has grown to understand Wade more than most. It’s likely for this reason that she usually treats him like an adult. She gets it—jokes hide the pain, people!

Her ability to call Deadpool out on any shenanigans he pulls makes her a great foil for the old ‘Pool Man. And, at times, she adds a little family-approved flirtation to Deadpool’s traditionally risqué banter.

Bob, Agent of Hydra

Bob wanted to live a normal existence—eat chips, mow the lawn, watch TV with his wife. And what did his wife want? Dental insurance. So Bob got himself an average nine-to-five working at the local criminal organization, Hydra.

Deadpool wanted a friend—someone to boss around, blame the voices on, eat chips with. And what did his friends want? Um…what friends? Wade Wilson has never had any friends, so he went looking for a buddy to team-up with during his anti-heroic adventures.

Bob and Deadpool got together in CABLE AND DEADPOOL #38 and, ever since, have done everything that best friends do. They’ve gotten scurvy, time traveled with dinosaurs, been severely injured, battled Dracula, and eaten chips. Chips rule! And also arson rules too! **


This one-sided bromance is what comic book dreams are made of.

Sure, Peter Parker might be a morally upstanding super hero, and sure, Deadpool generally doesn’t care about which civilian the Hulk accidentally sits on. But what matters here is the beautifully juxtaposed powers and sensibilities that these two bring to the table. And though they’ve had their ups and downs, these resident jokesters have developed a vaguely mutual respect for one another over the years. And that relationship is perfectly displayed in their ongoing joint series SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL. The third star of the book? That gorgeous forward slash.


Of course, the top spot on this ultimate team-up list goes to none other than Cable.

Nathan Summers’ explosive relationship with Deadpool has been the basis for many, many, many, many series over the years. Whether the two are allies or actively trying to kill each other is more or less a 50/50 toss-up, but regardless, the chemistry between these two can’t be denied. Cable’s time traveling stoicism perfectly compliments Deadpool’s gross face, and it all adds up to the best buddy cop throwdown anybody could ask for. If you love bulging old man pecs and giant belts, this team-up is for you.

Hawkeye is getting the band back together -- but who's on the team this time?

Kelly Thompson—writer of HAWKEYE, ROGUE & GAMBIT, CAPTAIN PHASMA, and more—is getting ready to reassemble a Marvel team from decades past! This week, we’re excited to announce WEST COAST AVENGERS, written by Thompson with art by Stefano Caselli! The ’80s book is back for an ongoing series run with another super group of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, and this time it has not one but two Hawkeyes!

The original West Coast Avengers was started by Clint Barton’s Hawkeye. This time around, Clint is joined by the current Hawkeye Kate Bishop and a few of their super powered friends! We talked with Kelly Thompson about what we can expect from the new WEST COAST AVENGERS and she had a lot to say about this wacky, disparate group finding a common thread:

“They all need and want something from being on that team together. Kate needs to help save LA, and she needs help to do that because villains have taken notice that there are no Super Heroes out there. I think there’s part of her that misses [being on a team] too. She’s been doing her own thing, on her own, and that’s cool. But she was the one, who, with no powers, was like ‘I’m leading the Young Avengers, I’m the boss.’”

As far as the original Hawkeye goes, Thompson says Clint is “trying to help Kate” but “doesn’t want to admit how much it’s fun for him to mentor.”

Other characters joining the West Coast fun are Gwenpool, whom Thompson describes as “a really weird X-factor” who will be going through some “really interesting” relationship developments; Quentin Quire, who is “always trouble,” but “clearly wants a family”; and Kate’s boyfriend Johnny, who is in “way over his head,” a situation that Thompson is very eager to explore.

But with every super group is a wild card, and according to Thompson, that wild card is America Chavez:

“I think America is the biggest question mark, and I think that’s something we’re excited to explore: Why does she come back to LA? Why does she come back to be with Kate? Does she miss [the group dynamic] too? Because America, she likes to play things a little close to the vest.”

Like the original West Coast Avengers, the team will be living together—but it’s not quite the same Tony Stark-funded flat that we saw in the ‘80s. Instead, to get funding, the team will be part of a reality show while living together under the same roof.

Will things stop being polite and start getting real? The new, ongoing series starts when WEST COAST AVENGERS #1 hits stores on Wednesday, August 22 so you can find out then! Make sure to visit your local comic book store and pre-order today!

Check out the full description of the first issue:

HAWKEYE (KATE BISHOP). HAWKEYE (CLINT BARTON). A guy named FUSE. Never have they ever been called “the big three” of…anything. And now here they are, reunited for, okay, well, it’s only the second time ever. Thank god they also brought AMERICA CHAVEZ, GWENPOOL and KID OMEGA. Wait. What? That’s right, it’s the new West Coast Avengers, son. And you better hope they can figure out how to save the world because BIG things are headed for the West Coast.

Watch as the acclaimed writer goes inside the tortured mind of Eddie Brock!

A primordial evil has been awakened beneath the streets of New York City, and with it, something equally evil has awakened in that most Wicked of Webslingers. On stands now, writer Donny Cates and artist Ryan Stegman‘s VENOM #1 has launched a groundbreaking new era for the symbiote.

Watch the exclusive interview above, as Cates teases this strange and exceptionally toxic chapter for Venom and Eddie Brock. “Something’s happening to the symbiote that terrifies him. It’s starting to speak in this other language that Eddie can’t understand and it’s driving him insane,” he explains. “The symbiote is starting to be very cruel and it’s starting to kind of operate without Eddie’s consent.”

Much like Eddie Brock, the writer himself has been empowered by the vicious might of the symbiote. “I’ve been let off the leash on this thing,” he says, “and I’m kind of going ballistic.”
