I'm such a simple writer. I only write sort of little simple themes, and there are two driving themes of the whole thing and those are Catwoman and Batman and their love, and Bane and Batman and their hate. It's contrasting those two just simple concepts. That's the driving engine of all 100 issues, from issue 1 to issue 103, which is where I'm gonna end the whole series. -- Tom King

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

Great point! Why do you think that didn’t happen here? -- Tom King, on Batman not being able to take down the Joker more instantly

It’s a great question, and there is an answer in the comic. (I’ve seen it in some replies.) Batman fans are incredibly smart. I have faith in you all to figure it out. -- Tom King, on how Catwoman won that fight

That sets up a Batman I want to read. That sets up a Batman whose pain comes from guilt, not just from inaction. I think a lot of us, when we think about the worst parts of our life, we think about ourselves being involved in them. It’s not just the pain that was done to us but [also] the pain we caused ourselves. In looking at Batman and making him more human and raising the stakes of the series, I wanted to bring out that guilt. -- Tom King

We’re trying to elevate Riddler the way that movie elevated the Joker. Sort of be a villain worthy of that much attention. -- Tom King

After my 1st Batman, I was struggling. Hated my stuff. Len [Wein] wrote a note, said he loved the issue. Gave me the confidence to keep going. -- Tom King

The little part of him that broke when his parents died and he couldn’t put back together. That’s all the Joker is. It’s Batman without love. The Riddler is the opposite of that. It’s the detective in him. That utterly logical, has to get things done, has to solve this problem [guy]. It’s Batman without the humanity. -- Tom King
