I saw that in your new vol 1 of lazarus that there was going to be a world building section is that only in the new volume? I have been following lazarus since it started and don't need the huge new vol.— nichotorres
Alas, we’ve got 30 pages marked for “extras” in the LAZARUS HC, and amongst those pages there will be a lot of original and never-before-seen content. Some of that content will make it to the Lazarus tumblr eventually, but some of it will be reserved for the volume alone.
Anything specifically world-building as opposed to process of world building will be made available via other means, though. So you shouldn’t feel like you’re missing out on any crucial information if you don’t pick it up.
The world map is going to be amazingly pretty, though, I’ll tell you that.
I was reading your author bio and noticed the part where you have two tattoos--if they're not too personal, can you tell us what they are? I am also curious about the state of the motorcycle. Has it yet been revived?— neuralhandshake
The motorcycle remains the world’s most expensive paperweight, likely with gasoline that has turned to gelatin in its tank and gummed up its fuel hoses beyond relief. I have missed riding it, though; hopefully I’ll be able to get it repaired soon (or better, sell it and get a new bike — I really want a new bike).
The tats, oy. Left arm, Rick Burchett’s Harley Quinn. Right arm, a tribal band bound with roses, surrounding (I am going to either lose or gain so much geek cred with this…) the runic symbol for the WoD werewolf clan, the Black Furies.
Let the mockery commence.
Just read the first issue of Stumptown volume 3 and I absolutely loved it. Thank you so much. Are there any plans to release this in hardcovers similar to the first two volumes?— differentjustin
My understanding is that The Case of the King of Clubs will receive the same trade HC treatment that the previous two cases did, yes.
Have you followed/read Batwoman's solo series that started a few years ago? I loved William's art and Blackwell's writing, and have you to thank for molding the character during Detective Comics! :)— halcyonglaze
I haven’t, to be perfectly honest. I tried, but I couldn’t do it. This is not a reflection on the quality of Jim and Haden’s work, nor on Marc’s; I lived with Kate for almost five years before Jim and I introduced her to the world in TEC. She is very, very dear to me, and the process of getting just those issues out alone was… beyond arduous.
I have a very clear vision of who she is, why she is, why she does what she does. It is so clear that it prevents me from reading what others do with her, because there’s always an annoyingly loud voice in my head saying, “but but BUT she wouldn’t DO that!” or similar.
And the thing is, I may have helped create this iteration of Kate Kane, but she’s NOT my character. She’s DC’s character.
So, like that.
Thank you for your kind words — very glad you’re enjoying Kate’s continuing adventures.
