What’s going on with Dark Knight: Boy Wonder? Is that still coming in February?

That is the plan, yes. Frank is awesome. He’s the artist’s artist, a grand storyteller, and I find that working from his scripts actually teaches me a lot about storytelling, because I’m getting inside his head and seeing how he composes shots. It’s the proverbial dream come true. This is a guy who inspired me to get into the business of comics, and getting to work with him decades later–what more can you ask for, really?

You did Batman: Europa too, right?

It’s the first chapter of a four-part story–I did the first chapter with Brian Azzarello and Matteo Casali, working off the layouts of Giuseppe Camuncoli. It’s a project we started a long time ago, and I feel bad that it kept getting pushed back, but we finally had an opportunity to get it done. It’s a cool story about Batman, the Joker, and an instance where they kind of have to work together, and the obvious tensions from something like that. We’re very happy that we were able to pull it off.
