NEWSARAMA: Tony Daniel - Batman: BFTC Field Marshall

Posted by Bob Tilley Monday, 22 December 2008

Ok, busier than I thought... Newsarama have posted an interview today with writer and artist of Batman: BFTC Tony Daniel.

Newsarama: Tony, how did the opportunity come about for you to write Battle for the Cowl?

Tony Daniel: I didn’t pursue it right off. I was casually talking to [editor] Mike Marts about the story and my thoughts on how great it could be. I consider myself a storyteller, so in my mind I guess the wheels of the story were naturally spinning. And in this case, you couldn’t shut me up.

I mentioned how this could be something really great and not just a stop gap before Grant’s or my return to the title. That we can really get behind the feelings and motivations behind the characters with this. But at the same time thinking this should be “John Woo” style, crazy, epic action. Which is exactly my cup of tea. I love action movies but only a rare few can pull off great action and a great story. I’m approaching this story the same way. To have the best of both worlds here.

So after spilling my guts for about 10 minutes about the ideas that were pouring out of my head, I jokingly told Mike that I would gladly accept the invitation to write Battle for the Cowl. Only he hadn’t done that and we both laughed. But I emailed him later after thinking about it more and it was too late. I was ramped up on my second cup of Starbucks and there was no turning back. I asked him to consider it.

Dan DiDio called me after speaking with Mike, and he had liked what he heard. So by then I had been thinking over the weekend more about the story, and at that point, it started to really come together as a story. So I relayed some of the same ideas I told Mike, but much more in depth since I had the advantage of the 48 hours of the story percolating.

But I knew it was a risk/reward situation for Dan and Mike to hand me the keys and offered to break it all down for them so they could make a decision they wouldn’t have to second guess. I knew they could’ve picked anyone to do this – a more experienced writer. So I turned around and gave them a basic first draft. But I made sure to portray all my strengths, like dialogue and pacing. So that pretty much sealed the deal after they read it.
