In what other form (besides comic books) do you write?

I said I didn't buy it . . . at first!! But that's beside the point, I like Batman cuz he's a great and Human super hero. While he is my favorite Super-hero. I don't buy comics just coz they feature him! If the writer or his or her writing doesn't impress me then it stays on the shelf!

On the "I don't care who writes Batman I'll buy it anyway just b/c I love the character" comment:

Please don't say anything like that, ever again. Seriously. By lowering the bar, you're asking for trouble. With a book costing $3 a piece these days, we deserve quality writers. Expect more, receive more.

Nope, not Bane.

I usually do a breakdown by hand, then type the script up, and then look at it a few times and pick at it, before sending it in. So it really depends. the last issue I wrote for Scott I did a bunch of changes after Scott had the issue in hand, so it really depends.

I'm a tough critic of my own work.

I have in fact been to Chicago, my brother went to law School there.

I write comics for myself to draw, as well. I'm also working on a few screenplays at the moment, one with a friend that we actually have some interest in, hollywood wise, that is. And I may try to write a detective novel, but I may not be able to, because we all can't be Greg Rucka

Ed, are you gonna tie in at all the Lex 2000 for President (it's what's going on in the Superman books right now if you didn't know) thing in your book. Like a TV in the background with a Lex commericial playing or something. Or Batman seeing it and letting out a big "what the f***!!!"

How long does it take you to write one month's script?

No LA convention for me.

And the LEX 2000 thing got sprung on us kind of late, so I have no mention of it in my books. But I have a possible one-shot in the first half of next year that may tie into the Luthor presidency a little.

I wish I could get #583, but I can't, and probably won't get it for another week.

But, Ed. #582 was cool, and I am planning on getting a subscription to Batman, so I really hope you get the ongoing writer gig.

1. If you were asked to write a story where one of the major supporting characters in Batman dies, who would it be and why?

2. What's the greatest challange in being a Batman writer?

Aside from "Deadenders" and "Batman," are there other comics projects you're working on (i.e. what are you going to do post-"Batman")? Do you find it more fun to work w/ super heroes, or to do something more "Vertigo"?

Glad you liked 582, it makes more sense with its second half, though.

It takes me anywhere from 2 days to a weeks and a half to write the average script. For the past few months I have been writing 3 or 4 scripts a month. Which is a lot of work.

How long per day are you chained to the word processor? Do you try to force yourself from watching the TV at the same time? Once you've given in to the lure of the electronic opium, don't syndicated television shows rule?!

He said it wasn't Bane. But I think that wascally witer is lying to us.

What's the craziest Idea you've had for Batman? (preferably one that DC didn't sanction so you don't get into any trouble! )

I guess it's personal tastes in charactors I guess. Sorry if you took what I said in the wrong way. About buying things just 'cause it's Batman, no way do I do that. About 1/2 of the books I don't buy simply because the charcters a)suck or b) don't deserve a monthly title. I welcome good creative teams as much as the next guy, but comic books in my opinion 60% story, 40% art. And I couldn't pass up Scott's art, even whan Hama was writing it. Scott glorified my faveorite hero. That's what I was trying to get across. It's the prsentation of the character itself is what proplels me to buy a comic. But I bought Hama's books only to see what everyone was talking s**t about. But with Ed on the book, good time will be had by all, story and art both kick bat-booty!!!
