"I wanted to give her a richer interior life. On the television show, she always seemed to be like a moral accessory to Fred. She’s the one who comes to scold him or bail him out when he does something stupid. But she’s always sort of there as sort of a Fred-whisperer.

I wanted her to be her own character and have her own life outside of Fred’s. I think that making her an artist, as you see in issue #1, gives us a whole new avenue of commentary to talk about art and the Flintstones. I don’t think that facet of human existence — the art world — was ever really addressed in the original cartoon.

"When you do a book and you just ignore any of the stuff that's happened because you've been lazy or just can't be bothered to do your research, I think that's really disrespectful and not good writing. In a super hero comic medium, part of the fun is that shared universe and the idea of all these characters existing in the same time frame." -- James Robinson
