I think a lot of people are surprised that you've remained dedicated to writing superhero comics for this long. Did you always foresee a waning of that work, or did it sneak up on you that "I'm not sure if I need to write anymore superhero stories"?http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page ... e&id=40014
The idea was always that I'd keep doing it as long as it gave me a lot of pleasure and allowed me to express myself . And it still does, but I can see the end coming closer. I'm coming to the end of long runs and stories I've had planned in my notebooks for years and the stuff I’m developing now is quite different.
The "Action Comics" run concludes with issue #16, "Batman Incorporated" wraps up my take with issue #12, and after that I don’t have any plans for monthly superhero books for a while. "Multiversity" is eight issues and I’m 30-odd pages into a Wonder Woman project but those are finite stories.
I'm not saying that I'll never write superheroes again. It's just that my relationship to them has changed especially after finishing the book and I’m not sure if I want to maintain the same kind of relentless level of production.
Haven't read the full interview yet, but he's taken breaks from superheroes in the past to write other stuff. I'm not that shocked or even concerned, honestly, because the stuff we have is great and plentiful, but this is the first time I've heard how long Action Comics and Batman Incorporated are going to go on. And Action's already on Issue 12 by now, so it's ending relatively soon.
Anyway, you guys should read his book if you haven't. It's pretty great.
