"The central conflict of our story is an internal one. When I think about what Diana/Wonder Woman represents… the word that comes to mind is love. Everything she does is based around the intense love she has for humanity. How will she reconcile that now that she is the God of War?" - Meredith Finch

"Like Superman, I had two names, one American and the other foreign. I, too, lived in between two cultures. When he travelled from America to the bottle city of Kandor, one of the few remnants of his home culture, I felt a kinship with him. It was a bit like the shift from public school to Chinese language school that I had to go through every Saturday." - Gene Luen Yang

"I think the temptation, when you do team books, is to overload people with information about them, and it passes for characterization, as opposed to kind of letting people learn about the characters through story. And that's what I'm hoping to accomplish here. As the story I'm telling moves forward, it gives me opportunities that really do reveal little bits and pieces about these kids' lives." - Lee Bermejo

'It's kind of hard to explain the EU to people who don't follow the Star Wars fandom in depth. There are multiple continuities -- what's in continuity? How in depth can you get? It's like "Crisis on Infinite Star Wars". We're in a position where we need to clear house and there's a huge sprawling forest. It's a very brave move that no-one's really done before. [Lucasfilm has a] story group and their task is very focused -- it's like this meta-myth and all the stories will be canon in a way they never were before.' -- Kieron Gillen

Jeff: And pretty much the two pinnacle--considered in most comic circles pinnacle pieces of comic fiction have been your Dark Knight Returns, of course, and the Watchmen by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. And many people compare the two, both the dark visions of superheroes and real world, and I was wondering just to--what are your thoughts on the comparison of Dark Knight to the Watchmen?

Frank Miller: Oh, I think that the two books were bound to be tied up together and compared a lot. For one thing, as it is that--all of us are really good friends. But beyond that, there was something in the air--I mean, something that could be shaken up with all these old superheroes, because they were really getting stale. I mean, for goodness' sakes, Batman was deputized. How wrong is that?

Jeff: Yeah.

Frank Miller: And then, ultimately, the differences between me and Alan as writers shone through. I mean, I like to joke that when it comes to superheroes, Alan Moore provided the autopsy and I provided the brass-band funeral.

"Yeah, The Humans were always apes… I started out wanting to write a biker script. I dig genre. I’m always trying to come up with different ideas for some of my favorite genres, one of which is biker movies, so that’s how it started. It quickly turned from a straight forward biker-idea and became the idea which was the seed for The Humans. Then that idea just banged around my head for 12 or so years till I told Tom about it drunk."

- Keenan Marshall Keller

"This isn't a "Planet of the Apes" scenario where the apes took over. It's just a simple role reversal."

- Tom Neely

The A.V. Club: Is it true that you originally wanted to do crime comics when you started your career, but you were pushed toward superheroes as the only legitimate form of commercial comics?

Frank Miller: Absolutely. Color me stupid, but I came in with a bunch of samples of guys in trenchcoats and old cars and stuff, and they looked at me like I was crazy. I had to learn to draw the muscles.

"This is not an exaggeration: I had close to 60 pages of notes and ideas on what this version of Marvel’s history contains before I began wrenching on an outline for the first arc." - Gerry Duggan

It's "Off-Topic Tuesday" time!

In the comments to these weekly posts (and only these posts), it's your chance to go as off topic as you like.

Talk about non-comics stuff, thread derail, and just generally chat amongst yourselves.

So the Jessica Jones TV series has hit Netflix and, though somewhat harrowing and uncompromising to say the least (which is at it should be considering the subject matter) it's got rave reviews.

Belgium has a rather unique response to it's ongoing security clampdown Cute cat tweets

One of Judy Garland's legendary gingham outfit from "The Wizard of Oz" sells for $1,500,000!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens - Look I don't need to add a link or anything, just type Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Oh okay, if you insist; Crew of USS Eisenhower do a rather impressive spoof

I won't wax lyrical again about the Doctor Who Lego Dimensions, but I do keep finding more easter eggs!

Oh, and a Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it. For those who want to know more about how it all started and the context of it all, here is a very informative video!
