“When we first teamed for Daredevil, DC called us. This was years ago. They offered me and Alex to leave Marvel and come do Batman. We looked at each other and were like, ‘ahh they finally called and we can’t come!’ Anyone can relate to this, once in a while you get a call and later you think, ‘I wonder what would have happened if I had done this?’ There was no sliding door, we weren’t going to leave Marvel at the time. But we’ve always thought about it. So when I came to DC, I had to call Alex. He said, ‘I want Batman! I’ve waited so many god damn years!’ If you put a piece of paper in front of Alex, he’ll draw Batman. That’s his go-to. So there was a lot of context when DC offered us to do a story in Detective Comics #1000. I was like oh yeah, this will scratch that itch beautifully for me and Alex.” -- Brian Michael Bendis

"It's a mystery, so I have to be a little vague, but there's a reason this story takes place in the DC Universe. Just like Jessica Jones' story could have been told in a 'fictional' Marvel Universe, it really only had that specialness because it was the Marvel Universe. There's a similar thing with Naomi, where it's because it's the DC Universe that this story will be that much more potent for her.

[The events of the first issue] not only start Naomi on a quest to find herself, but by doing so, she starts investigating the town, and by doing so she discovers that -- like every town in America -- it's full of secrets. These secrets are a little more DC connected than I think people would even guess from the first issue." -- Brian Michael Bendis

"Our goal was to create something that was authentic as Jessica [Jones], but completely different in every way. There's a history in comics, where if someone has a hit or a genre passion, they'll do a variation of that hit in a creator-owned book. I get that instinct, and I won't say if I've done that or I haven't done that (in the past). But in this particular instance, Jessica has become so out-of-our-hands iconic that we had to make sure whatever we put next in the world was unique and as inviting.” -- Brian Michael Bendis

"My film student teenage daughter and I were having a very long conversation about the Coen brothers and why there’s always a force at work underneath the plot in every movie…always some underpinning of the unexplained. While these stories were being told to me and while I was doing the research, there’s so much spirituality involved, so much unspoken spirituality, it affected the storyline. As we got to issues 4 and 5, it will reveal itself more…the conversation about how people in life feel like there are forces working beneath them. The hand of God or spirituality in their daily lives, and it’s not written about a lot in comics because it immediately goes to a religious place, but that’s not necessarily what we’re talking about here." -- Brian Michael Bendis

Newsarama: So this secret that she’s hiding — I mean, from their interaction in the last couple issues, they appear to still be in love. But just to clarify, the secret is not some type of precursor to the end of their marriage, or something she’s doing behind Clark’s back to hurt him or anything.

Bendis: Oh, not at all. She couldn’t be more clear unless she almost says to the camera “we’re not breaking up; I’m madly in love with you.” They have a very complicated situation here.

"That was another thing I was happy to get rid of: Albinos always being the creepy assassin. I read an article about how there are no lead albino hero or characters. So as we're talking about representation in comics and media, then there seems to be a good one to fix. I was happy to course correct as much as we can. Pearl's a very unique person; no else has this." -- Brian Michael Bendis
