Yeah I’m really conscious of that, we do have these overarching plots we have to serve, but Cameron and I are conscious of new readers coming in at any point, and making this series and the other two series I’m writing, Gotham Academy and Black Canary, not feel bogged down by the long histories of the characterizes, by all these decades worth of stories that came before. I never want to discount any of that or make it seem like those points of continuity never took place. But I just think each issue needs to feel like a fresh place for a new reader to start, that they can come in and get something out of it. - Brenden Fletcher

"I would argue that the people that enjoy this don't know the real Barbara Gordon at all. They like this because they don't know any better. She has been around since 1967. That is 49 years. This current run is a blip of her total history. Stewart's run accounts for about 2% of her accumulated existence. When I evaluate her, I evaluate her against herself. His run is absolutely not a fair representation of the character by any means.

Maybe this is a Batgirl that certain people can relate to, but is it really the kind of Batgirl we want them looking up to and emulating.

A lot of these characters are more real to me than people I know in reality. Batgirl is like my sister for crying out loud. And right now, Stewart is telling lies about her. You think I'm just going to stand by and watch somebody badmouth my sister. I protect my own. Since Batgirl is a fictional character, she can't defend herself. She needs people like you and me to defend her. If you really had her back, like your name implies, you wouldn't be defending this.

"Yeah we never really get enough time you know, we say it again and again 20 pages is never enough. We have a really great supporting cast, the three of us have worked so hard to develop the supporting cast and they’re sp important to us and we really want to spend more time with them, but we have to remind ourselves the book is called Batgirl.

It’s about Barbara Gordon and about how she moves through her life and spends time with these people as much as she can while trying to better herself, while trying to get an education, while trying to maintain any kind of work she’s doing while saving the lives of people in Burnside and Gotham, She doesn’t have a lot of spare time in her life and rarely spends a lot time with any one person.

"It’s one of the most challenging things about this book and one of the most satisfying things. The tone is a very specific tone and it requires a balancing act. We want it to be dark and spooky, but we don’t want it to be terrifyingly dark and too spooky. My eight year old niece needs to be able to read this book, but it also has to feel like it has some gravitas to it. The dark and spooky stuff still needs to be effective. That stuff’s tough to achieve, I don’t think we could do it without Karl’s deft hand pulling it all together in the artwork stage. He really knows how to strike that balance perfectly." - Brenden Fletcher

"Yeah! Furi Kuri is one of my main influences for Black Canary. And again, I know that doesn’t seem obvious off the top, but all of the elements that you’re seeing play out in the first issue are to approximate that tone that’s fun but also has an undercurrent of melancholy. And that undercurrent comes from Dinah’s personality, and what she’s been through in the last number of years." - Brenden Fletcher

"Gotham Academy was at [the American Library Association midsummer meeting], where we learned there was no such thing as “all ages.” Honestly, I am writing my part of Gotham Academy for myself. This is the kind of book I want to enjoy, but at the same time I’m very conscious that my eight-year-old niece needs a book like this. If I have to drill down and say it has to be shelved in a certain place or recommended to a specific demographic, I would say young people eight to 14. My niece is eight and she loves Gotham Academy. I feel very proud when I give her a book and she devours it and wants more. I had her in mind when I put it together. I need to know this is something she is really going to enjoy. It feels really validating. I know that it’s not inappropriate for that age range, we are not putting anything in there that would be inappropriate at all, but also I know this story plays for somebody at that age. It’s really been stirring a chord with her." - Brenden Fletcher

Comic Book Resources: How much does the music aspect play a role -- is it a major component, or more in the background?

Fletcher: It informs the situation, but the situation, of course, involves a woman who is ex-military, and potentially the best martial artist on the planet. Trouble kind of follows her around. While they're trying to go on this tour, while they're trying to make the most of this unique opportunity that they've been given to have a record deal, and play all these shows, really they just end up in fights all the time, and people end up hurt. That's maybe a problem. It fuels the story.

Wu: What I have in mind, stylistically, music plays a big part in that. I look at a lot of gig posters and music videos; the theatrical aspect of being on stage, all that fun stuff. Hopefully our final product will have that feeling of a rock tour. Halftones and bold colors. That, plus, al the kung fu action and all that kind of stuff. Hopefully it'll be a really fun, vibrant, energetic final product.
