Brian Bolland is currently in Russia for the KomMissia comic convention. Well, the folk from ex-pirate comics site Spider-Media.ru were on hand to ask the man what’s up, and will run an interview with him tomorrow.

But they wanted to get one question-and-answer out of the way. Just as Dark Knight is getting a threequel, Watchmen and Sandman got prequels and they tried to get Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon to do more Preacher, there’s another DC comic book that current management were trying to get more of.

The site reports that Brian Bolland told them that several months ago DC Comics earnestly invited him to draw a sequel to The Killing Joke. The writer on the comic would be Brian Azzarello.

However, Bolland chose not to go ahead as he is no longer drawing comics because of his age and that the book would have just taken too long to draw. And he understands that DC Comics aren’t looking for another artist.

Yet.

Instead it has been announced that Azzarello will be writing for the Dark Knight: The Master Race threequel…
