Batman: The Brave & The Bold #20 on Sale Wednesday
I can’t tell you how excited I am that tomorrow my one issue of Batman: The Brave & The Bold will be going on sale. It has been nearly two decades since I last wrote a comic book and it was a great experience.
When I completed the script, my editor Michael Siglain told me he was assigning it to Robert Pope who is a big fan of Jack Kirby’s characters. I certainly knew the talented Mr. Pope’s name from the various Johnny DC tittles he had illustrated.
I was thrilled by what he had done, including his imaginative cover design. How that came to be is the subject of a blog post over at John Rozum for Kids. John, a long-time writer for Milestone and DC, explained to me, “It’s meant to cover every aspect of what goes into making a comic from start to finish, covering art, writing, editing, inspiration, lettering, and hopefully at some point the actual process at the printer.”
He’s invited me to contribute a piece on how I came to write the story and the process which I will be doing later today.
After everyone goes out and buys the issue, let me know what you think.
