CBR: JUDD WINICK TALKS BATMAN POST BFTC!

Posted by Bob Tilley Thursday, 26 March 2009

CBR.com has spoken with writer Judd Winick on his return to the Batman title post BFTC, along side artist Ed Benes and Rob Hunter with the focus on Batman as a new character and his mission to clean up the streets of Gotham. This is the first of a two part interview, which will continue tomorrow.


CBR: Is the Batman that you’re writing in “Batman” the same Batman that will be in Grant Morrison & Frank Quitely’s “Batman and Robin?”

Judd Winick: Yep, Batman’s Batman. Across all the books and all the titles, Batman will be the same Batman. I can go out on a limb with that one without checking with DC.

CBR: We just spoke with Greg Rucka about writing “Action Comics” without Superman, and while you’re writing “Batman” with Batman, it’s not Bruce Wayne. Was that part of the appeal of taking on this assignment?

JW: For us as creators, it’s always been, “How do we get a fresh take on this character?” The last time through, it was about Jason Todd. That was a story that hadn’t been told yet, as far as I was concerned. And coming back to it now, well, internally we’ve been talking about me coming back to “Batman” with editorial since I left. But for me, there wasn’t a story that I really wanted to tell. There wasn’t one that really felt that interesting to me. But this one did. We’ll call it this “new take” on Batman to keep things sort of simple. But that interested me more than anything else, really.

It’s a new take on an old character. And that becomes a fresh story. I think we’re all sort of in agreement with that. That was the draw. But that’s just the starting point. It is about this new take on this character, as well as a mystery that will spin out of it. And not the obvious one. Not the one about possibly getting Bruce Wayne back in the cape and the cowl. That really isn’t the ongoing. That will be part of it, if ever.

I think each title has its own arc and own trajectory and a thing that it’s going for. “Batman” will be a very different book in story and in tone than “Batman & Robin.” Grant’s book will be very Grant Morrison. It’s going to be very fantastic and fantastical and big and wonderfully broad and expansive and looking at Batman in a very new way. My book is going to be a little more introspective. It will be about Batman examining who he is. And what it means to wear the cowl.

Check back tomorrow, when CBR News talks more with Winick about his two unpublished issues of “Battle for the Cowl,” the importance of Alfred, and why writing “Batman” is great for dinner parties.
