NEWSARAMA: New Face Under a Similar Mask: Nicieza Talks Azrael

Posted by Bob Tilley Tuesday, 6 January 2009

More from writer Fabian Nicieza on his upcoming mini-series Azrael: Death’s Dark Knight #1 over at Newsarama.com

This time round the interview focuses more on the Suit of Sorrow from Detective Comics #842, which is one reason I'm looking forward to this mini-series.

NRAMA: Let’s talk about the Suit of Sorrows – can you give us the thumbnail sketch of when it showed up, and what it is?

FN: The Suit of Sorrows was introduced during the “Resurrection of Ra's al Ghul” storyline and further defined in Detective Comics #842. It will be a very different overall design than the original, but oddly enough, it will still have a visual design that will hearken back to the concept of "yesterday's knight today" look that Joe Quesada created years ago. It just won't be as complicated a design to draw. [laughs]

NRAMA: Why’s it a bad thing to put it on?

FN: Well, simply put, it eventually drives anyone who has worn it a little batty -- no pun intended. Okay, I did intend it. I'm sorry. Sometimes I miss writing Deadpool just so I can get paid to get bad jokes out of my system. Anyway, the Suit might have some magical aspects to it, or maybe it's as much a psychosomatic reaction to the psychological burden of wearing it, we'll see. But to wear the suit you have to want to kill in God's name. But killing in God's name is as much sin as salvation, so slowly, the contradiction can drive a person mad.

Which raises two questions: what if the person you give the suit to is already a little crazy? Or, the opposite -- so righteously committed to a cause he believes in as to be so sane, most people would consider him insane...?

NRAMA: The elephant in the room – Talia, Ra’s daughter, and in her mind, probably, a kind of “widower” in a sense...how does she react to this guy in the suit?

FN: Well, considering that she considers the Suit of Sorrows was taken from her (she gave it as a gift to Batman and now it's been taken from his cave), I think you can answer that question for yourself. Talia's desire to reclaim the suit from the new Azrael fuels much of the action in the mini-series.
