A Christmas Happy From Morrison And Robertson, Justifying Wonder Woman, That Man Of Steel Moment And Whether Gordon Knows...

inc

My mind is still playing catch up with reality, which is how I missed a relatively long promotional interview with Grant Morrison in USA Today, timed for today’s release of Batman Inc #13, his final Batman comic.

In which he talks about identity;

I noticed in my first issue of Batman way back with (artist) Andy Kubert, the first panel is seen through Commissioner Gordon’s glasses. I don’t know why I started it that way but I think that needs a payoff. I decided it would be really good to do the last issue as how does Gordon really see Batman and Bruce Wayne and does he know.

The return of Happy with Darick Robertson from Image Comics;

Yeah. I’ve got a Christmas edition of Happy coming out with 10 new pages that adds to the story. I’m also doing this thing Annihilator with Legendary Comics. There’s a lot of creator-owned stuff and new character stuff coming out, as well.

His meta-structural take on Wonder Woman;

I always felt one of the fundamentals of Wonder Woman in at least the last two decades is that she always seems to be on trial, and I don’t mean that in a story sense. Everyone’s always saying, “Why does nobody buy Wonder Woman? Why isn’t she any good?” (Laughs) it seems like she’s always on trial, so I thought if I literalized that and made the story basically the Amazons bringing her back home after her first adventure away and putting her on trial, it’d be different from anything else you might see. The Amazons have their own ways of doing things.

It’s kind of asking Wonder Woman to justify herself, which I feel has almost been what the character’s had to do for a long time.

More on Annihilator later today. And that Man Of Steel moment…

There is a certain demand for it, but I just keep wondering why people insist that this is the sort of thing we’d all do if we were in Superman’s place and had to make the tough decision and we’d kill Zod. Would we? Very few of us have ever killed anything. What is this weird bloodlust in watching our superheroes kill the villains?
