“The perplexing thing is Kingdom Come was supposed to be a cautionary fable. It was supposed to be like, “This is what happens when you go down a very dark road. It ends up very badly.” It seems like a lot of people only took the first part of that message, which is, “Oh, look at the cool stuff in Kingdom Come.” No! No, no! Lois Lane is not supposed to die. Superman and Wonder Woman are not supposed to be a couple.

It’s kind of fascinating to me to see some of the wrong lessons learned, but some of the right lessons, too. I love the fact that Kingdom Come managed to elevate Wonder Woman to the “Trinity” level. It wasn’t just Superman and Batman anymore. I’m proud of what we accomplished, but every once in a while I think, “Oh, you learned the wrong lesson there.”

Dan Slott: In Amazing Spider-Man we’re going to see The Daily Bugle and the Bugle cast come back in a big way. And, no, it is NOT about Peter becoming a photographer again. It’s a new twist. It’s something we haven’t seen in Amazing Spider-Man yet. After 55 years, that’s a pretty cool trick, right? And it’s a development I’ve been dying to get to for a long time!

The upcoming AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #789 starts a BOLD NEW DIRECTION in the life of Peter Parker. Who looks like a very young Martin Landau.

A little over a decade ago, Alex Ross was pitching DC Comics on a few ideas for new projects. Ultimately, the idea they went with was Justice, a maxi-series written by Ross and Jim Krueger with pencils by Doug Braithwaite that Ross would then paint over.

However, an alternate idea that he pitched DC was a prestige format mini-series called Batboy, which would star the son of Batman…

Also, the Teen Titans graduated into the Justice League )
