Did you like the glimpse behind the scenes at DC Comics last week? Well, there's more!
First, Ron Richards stops of in Bob Harras' brand new office, where he's just started as the Editor-in-Cheif of DC, overseeing all of Vertigo Comics, MAD Magazine, and DC proper. Harras was formerly the EiC of Marvel Comics as well, so he's got some street cred. We talk to him about his new job, and what it entails, and what the best parts of it are.
Next we find Conor Kilpatrick in, of all places, Batman group editor, Mike Marts' office, where the wall of continuity is revealed! Marts explains that it's not just Batman they have to keep track of, but several Batmen, a bunch of ancillary characters, and even villains. It's daunting, but lots of fun. Marts talks about the differences in the various titles throughout the line, from books by Grant Morrison, to David Finch, to Scott Snyder, and more.
Finally, Josh winds up in Vertigo Executive Editor Karen Berger's office, where there are simply too many things to talk about. Berger talks about the roots of Vertigo, from her early days as a DC editor on titles like Swamp Thing (which is not a superhero book). Then she talks about discovering some of the most successful talents in comics today, and the current wave of Vertigo hits, from Hellblazer, to Fables, to Daytripper, and American Vampire.
