In particular, it was nice to see Rose Wilson--whose portrayal as a NOWHERE flunkie since the New 52 started has been painful--acting heroically and interacting with a team of friends. I know it was just a one shot, but is there any chance you might write her again in the near future? I'd love to see her start developing towards this future.

Thanks for checking it out and the kind words! I currently am not writing anything with Rose, but she’s a great character and I hope to see her used more in the DCU!

SUPERBOY: FUTURES END #1 // FRANK J. BARBIERE // BEN CALDWELL // DC COMICS // SEPTEMBER 10th, 2014

I had a chance to write an issue of SUPERBOY with one of my favorite artists, BED CALDWELL.  It’s a fun done-in-one story about Superboy and a team of heroes 5 years from now in the future.  Ben did truly amazing work and I can’t wait for you all to check it out!

aleskot:

The word is out: we’re making Winter Soldier and these are Marco Rudy’s pages from the first issue.

Two big interviews with me have dropped in the past two days. The first is an interview with Abraham Riesman at Vulture.com. We talk about ghosts, inequality, Winter Soldier…lots of things. The second one, at CBR, also includes Marco Rudy’s answers. The Vulture interview is where we float around — the CBR interview is more focused on Winter Soldier. 

So it’s, in some ways, a metaphor about trying to be a new kind of American in the world? One who doesn’t see the rest of the world as a threat, but more as an opportunity to learn?
You’re entirely correct. I never wanted to glorify war in the first place, and I believe I never did in anything I wrote. But now I’m getting from a place about war to places that are about much more. So, yeah, I’m doing that with Zero, and doing that with a completely different scale — an intergalactic scale — with Winter Soldier.

So, talking about Zero: Has Zero gone the way you planned, or has it—
[Laughs.]

You laughed, so I don’t think I even need to finish the question.
[Laughs.]

How much of a plan did you have going into Zero, and how much have you deviated from it?
How much of my life went as I planned it? Zero. [Laughs.]

 

WInter Solider is going to be tremendous.
