Josh Green: Let’s talk about Kate Spencer for a moment. What is it about her character that distinguishes her from most other heroes in comics?

Marc Andreyko: Her acceptance that sometimes the legal system fails and that there are bad-guys out there who don’t deserve to live. Often it seems indulgent, at best, and incompetent, at worst, when these heroes continually catch and send to the looney bin or prison, villains who only want to kill. They’re not gonna get better, so why risk them escaping? Again. And again.

"The Flintstones is not so much political as social commentary. It’s more about what it means to be human, or to be part of a society or civilization, rather than the granularity of political struggle. So, there’s not much of that. I’m just trying to make something that’s resonant for people, no matter what political or social structure they’re in."

I've been wanting to get back to the empty abyss that is Countdown to Final Crisis, but it is such a slog... a dark, unpleasant, and mean-spirited slog that it is hard to get through and muster the energy to do it.

So, let's just skip ahead to the absolute bottom of the barrel. Quite possibly the worst issues of this entire run: #24 & #23, the introduction of Superboy-Prime, aka Superman-Prime at the time.

WARNING: Violence, gore, and vomiting are seen in these comics.

Hi folks!

Not every new DC comic of the last few years was all doom and gloom; there was the Bat-Mite mini-series for example.

The basic notion was that Bat-Mite had been exiled to the Earth dimension for being too goofy and embarrassing, which had the side effect of limiting his powers somewhat. He decided to spread his "help" beyond the Batman family, to other heroes desperately in need of makeovers as he saw it. This usually caused more problems than it solved.

Four pages from issue #5.

"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.

"We open the story with the reality that Sinestro has gotten everything he’s ever wanted. He’s parked Warworld in Sector 0, the former location of Oa. He’s now the official police force for a universe that’s his to rule and to put into order.

This is what he’s always wanted. The Green Lantern Corps is gone and the Sinestro Corps is filling the void.

Now, of course, Hal reclaiming the mantle and the Corps returning to the universe is really going to upset that apple cart. We’ll see how Sinestro deals with something he’s never had to deal with before: having everything he’s ever wanted, and dealing with the potential that he might lose it."
