J.H. WILLIAMS III TALKS BATWOMAN

Posted by Bob Tilley Friday, 2 July 2010

CBR continue there Bat Signal coverage with an interview with J.H. Williams III on Batwoman with Greg Rucka and his upcoming run.

CBR News: So, JH, how did you get involved in this particular project and what attracted you to it in the beginning?

I was supposed to be doing a lot more Batman sort of stuff. I was going to be working with Grant [Morrison] for a little bit, but then they decided they wanted me to do "Detective Comics" when Paul Dini was working on it. But I was only able to do an issue of that because I had a prior commitment to the Seven Soldiers project. The plan was to return to "Detective Comics" while Batman was in it, but working on "Seven Soldiers" took a really long time, and by the time I was ready to come back, the production schedule on "Detective" was done in such a way that there was no way for there to be scripts written in advance enough of the publishing schedule for me to return to it. In the meantime, I ended up doing the Batman "Black Glove" storyline with Grant while they were trying to figure out what I was going to be doing next.

Then, they talked to me about the Batwoman thing that they wanted to do with Greg Rucka. It sounded like a cool idea. Greg's a great writer, I thought it was an interesting prospect, particularly in terms of being able to work on a Bat-oriented character. I love the Batman universe. To be able to work on a character from the ground up and define that character for others to follow down the road was a really intriguing thing for me, instead of me having to follow years of what was expected based on what people had done with the character. That creative bug was there. There was a lot of inspiration in terms of being able to work on something from the ground up.

My understanding from reading older interviews with you is that the series went through a long gestation period. Do I have that right?

Yeah. There was a lot of talking back and forth, trying to figure out what to do with the character. There was definitely a long process of figuring out what to do. That's the sort of thing every new character that is meant to have big plans surrounding [them] has to go through. You have to make sure everything's lining up properly, working the way it should and being its own
unique voice.
