"If anyone wants to check out comics, wants to check out DC Universe Rebirth #1 and doesn’t like it, they can mail it to Warner Bros., to me, and I will send them a check, I literally will, for both postage and for the book. I will buy all these books back because I believe in this issue a lot. I think it’ll do very well. I hope it does well. But I seriously will, I’ll buy back this book." - Geoff Johns

"We're exploring a very big theme in that book. That theme is the power of optimism and the power of hope and how no matter what you do it will shine through if you try and help it shine through." - Geoff Johns

"If you're going to do this kind of epic, world-shattering story, you have to show consequences - especially when it comes to violence."

"That scene with Uncle Sam - the embodiment of America - face down in oil... was amazing. So symbolic."

'[Her new costume] is completely different from everyone else's costume reworking at the moment. We're not really working with the kind of, "I'm going to take a selfie"-style character. Our character is more, "I'm on stage and I'm going to play guitar with David Bowie." She's pure glam-metal.' -- Kieron Gillen

"[Phil Jiminez] had strong reservations about the character. There was the impression that Angela was a big, grim lady who wants to kill people, and that's not emotionally interesting to him. So I got on the phone with him, and we talked back and forth. He came out the other end of this hour-long conversation, getting the character. The conversation also made me get the character in other ways, because I have no desire to write her as a character that's a grim Punisher type figure, either." -- Kieron Gillen

'There is room for different expressions of Angelic cultural values. There's probably a conflict between how they view friendship on a societal level, which I suspect might be a kind of Ayn Randian Objectivist view. That might be a hard philosophy of Angels. There might be some Angels who don't believe in friendship versus other ones who have expressions of friendship perhaps not encouraged by the system.

'That's kind of my reading of their system. The more complex readings there are of Angels would be the more interesting one for me.

'We can also look at our relationships. We say our concept of friendship is based on altruism, but we can always ask, "Well how much is it really?"'

"The problem is less what a character wears, and how an artist chooses to frame the images. You can have a girl dressed in the most practical gear in the universe, but if the artist chooses an ass-shot, it’s cheesecake. We’re not doing cheesecake. We’re doing the scariest woman in the galaxy." -- Kieron Gillen

Certain creators not liking certain characters is nothing new. But sometimes it is hard to tell.
In GREEN LANTERN: REBIRTH, it certainly seemed Geoff Johns doesn't like Batman. Specifically, the post-Zero Hour Batman. John Stewart said Batman never liked Hal Jordan because Hal wasn't afraid of him. (Because Batman's just that petty.) But let's move on to INFINITE CRISIS.
