I think I make a lot of mistakes when I write Catwoman. I think I write her too idealized, too perfect. Joelle Jones actually came to me and we started talking about Catwoman, and she said "Don't forget, she's a burglar. She robs people. She's dangerous." She's not just super-perfect, Batman's idealized version of a person. She's her own person, she makes horrible mistakes, and she makes incredible comebacks from those mistakes. And you have to keep that in mind. -- Tom King

In terms of what I want to do with it, the level of ambition... I'm pushing this one very hard, and in a different direction from what I usually do. See... when I made my start in UK comics, I started as a horror writer. Not many people know that. The first few stories I was ever paid to tell were horror stories - very dark and very creepy. But I don't think I've ever really done a long-form horror/suspense book for Marvel.

Not until now.

It's going to be big. And - no false modesty here - it's going to be very, very good. We've got an incredibly talented artist putting their all into it, and we've got me writing a character I've loved since my childhood - and not letting that love stop me.

This is going to be the book of 2018. Don't sleep on it.

The common wisdom that Bruce Wayne is merely a daytime mask for Batman-- that Batman is Batman all of the time and only wears Wayne like a raincoat in order to serve Batman’s purpose--is reversed for Slade who is, in many ways, Batman's criminal counterpart. Slade Wilson really is Slade Wilson. “Deathstroke” is just a character he created to act more-or-less anonymously, although Deathstroke’s secret identity is hardly secret; it is, at best, selectively secret. -- Christopher J. Priest

Captain America and Bucky 620-000.jpg

So here's how Steve Rogers met James "Bucky" Barnes. And nothing about Bucky accidentally finding out Steve was Captain America and becoming his sidekick right then and there.

I knew who he was. )

"But one reason that I chose the practice of opinion journalism—which is to say a mix of reporting and opinion—is because understanding how those opinions fit in with the perspectives of others has always been more interesting to me than repeatedly restating my own. Writing, for me, is about questions—not answers. And Captain America, the embodiment of a kind of Lincolnesque optimism, poses a direct question for me: Why would anyone believe in The Dream? What is exciting here is not some didactic act of putting my words in Captain America’s head, but attempting to put Captain America’s words in my head. What is exciting is the possibility of exploration, of avoiding the repetition of a voice I’ve tired of." - Ta-Nehisi Coates

Since we last saw Doug Ramsey before this miniseries started, he had, in no particular order
  • Started some sort of information brokerage service (Which actually seemed like a cool idea)
  • Become a completely isolated internet junkie during a bizarre project to try and "translate the internet... all of it" which led to him forgetting to bathe, sleep or eat.
  • Had changed from "good looking twink", to "dishevelled, forty year old looking hobo with a terribkly unfortunate line in facial hair"
  • Been hired by Misty Knight to assist Daredevil in locating Wolverine
  • Had his throat slit by someone who looked a lot like Wolverine.
This is not his best day... but given he's died twice already, maybe not his worst one either... I guess )
