I just read "Soft Targets" and it was amazing. One of the best Joker stories I've read in awhile. I felt like Nolan took some inspiration from it for Dark Knight. So in a round about way, it made me curious what you think of Heath Ledger's Joker. Something I love about the Joker is he can stand so many different interpretations.

I thought Ledger’s Joker was amazing. I genuinely thought his performance was outstanding.

Hello! I heard you'll attend the Lille Comics Festival, will you bring your Lazarus stuff there? :)

I will indeed be bringing some Lazarus swag with me — some of the prints, and stickers, and what patches I can scrounge up. Very much looking forward to attending the festival!

Did you watch the Gotham premiere? Renee was in it and I'm very excited for her portrayal in a live action TV show. I was just hoping to get your opinions as the show progresses.

I have to admit that I did not. I know that both Renee and Cris are present as recurring characters, and I’m genuinely tickled by that. I hope they were portrayed well; I, perhaps selfishly, hope that they retained a little of what Ed and I invested in them.

Any plans for an appearance at MegaCon in Orlando this coming April? I'd love to see you there, especially since this will be my first time attending a convention.

Alas, not this year, or at least not at present. I’m limiting my convention appearances these days as it is. If MegaCon were to extend an invitation, I’d certainly consider it.

If I remember correctly, Brian Michael Bendis recommended you launch the Cyclops series. Is that accurate? If so, could his recommendation & Mike Marts as the new X-Men editor possibly get you writing (adjectiveless) X-Men? Do you have any interest in that?

That is correct. brianmichaelbendis suggested me to editor Nick Lowe, and Nick gave me a call, and that was how that ball began rolling.

X-Men is a Marvel crown jewel. I would love to write them, without question, but there’s a long line of writers better positioned, and arguably better-suited, to that job than I. If the PTB did, for some reason, make the offer, it would be very hard to refuse, I have to admit.

Photographer creates gorgeous and empowering images of one-handed daughter

New Zealand-based photographer Holly Spring has stumbled upon a foolproof formula for capturing beauty: whimsical scenery, a realistic blend of photography and digital art, and her remarkable, one-handed daughter, Violet.

Spring recently shot a striking portrait series of 4-year-old Violet, who suffered early in life with Hirschsprung’s Disease and is missing her left hand. The series has rightfully gained recognition for both its composition — which earned Spring the NZIPP/Epson Iris Portrait Creative Photographer of the Year award in 2014 — and its positive message. While Violet may not be fully able-bodied, Spring said she wants her to understand her limitless potential.
