NEWSARAMA: Dan DiDio 20 Q&A and Batman: BFTC Teaser Image!

Posted by Bob Tilley Wednesday, 24 December 2008

Even on Christmas Eve the new's just keeps coming and this time around its definatly a holiday surprise. Newsarama have posted today their 20 Q&A with Dan Didio,again I've consolidated all the Batman questions here for everyone's ease. Along with a fantastic Batman: Battle for the Cowl Teaser Image...

15. With changes in Batman and Superman going into space, what’s going to become of the Superman/Batman title?

DD: The two books that exist, as I like to say, on the “side” of continuity are Superman/Batman and The Brave and Bold. In both those cases, we really want to keep with the high concept of those series, and keep the high energy, and more importantly, allow for the open sense of storytelling that people would expect in those two books. So even though we’re making chances to Superman and Batman in their own series and in satellite series, Superman/Batman will stay true to form and just go with the biggest, wildest, craziest ride we can offer.

NRAMA: Was there a temptation to put the “replacements” in there for even an arc? That is, whoever wins Battle for the Cowl and say, Nightwing and Flamebird?

DD: There was a temptation, but it’s been pushed aside. We want to stay true to the form of the series that was established in the very firs issues of each.

18. The March solicitations showed the mini-explosion of the Batman titles. Can you give a thumbnail sketch of what goes where and whether or not they’re all parts of the Battle for the Cowl story?

DD: It depends on who you’re following. If you’re a Batman fan, the primary story that you need to read is Battle for the Cowl, pure and simple. In those three thirty page issues that are coming out, it will feature mostly every character that has every fought, or been inspired by Batman, all converging on Gotham City.

The support books – the one shots and The Gotham Gazette are helping to enrich the world of Batman so everyone can get a bigger Batman fix during the three months that the other books have been stopped. The Oracle miniseries plays into the world of post-Final Crisis, so naturally it does play off of Battle for the Cowl, but really, it is Barbara Gordon’s story, following up on a series of events from Final Crisis, and more importantly how they affect her life. The Azrael miniseries – I really can’t talk too much about that, other than to say that when a Batman seems to be missing, an Azrael always seems to pop up.

19. While we’re still on the Batman universe, we’ve spoken with Peter Tomasi about the new direction for The Outsiders. This goes back to the topic of scheduling and placing the books – but why continue that at its current number with a title change and creative team change, as well as other #1s happening throughout the world of Batman?

DD: Because we’ve just done a #1 on that series, to tell the truth. Realistically, a change of direction is something that every book has happen, and if we renumber a book every time a series changes direction, we’ll be putting out #1s every few months. I’d much rather prefer just to stay on course with the series as it is in regards to numbering, and more importantly, I think Pete’s take on the series flows very nicely from all the events prior to this. It builds on what existed beforehand, it builds on the Special, and it puts a team together that most fans of the Outsiders will be very comfortable seeing.

DD:As for my question this time, we wanted to give DC readers and Batman fans a holiday gift – and I saw that there were some questions in the thread about another teaser image like we did for Infinite Crisis and Countdown. The answer is yes, and we’re debuting it here at Newsarama. This is our teaser for the upcoming Battle for the Cowl miniseries by Tony Daniel, and it ties right in to my question for all of you: can you find all of the clues hidden in the picture?
