Because I Said So

Hey, for those of you who might be interested in such things, there's a new short interview with me up at a website called Marvel Gazette. You can link to it here if you're so inclined.

If you do decide to read it, let me know what you think, okay?

You have to scroll down the page to get to your interview because the first one is now for Mark Evanier and I suspect there will be a new entry today as well. Nice interview, once you find it.

It's a fun, quick little read and I enjoyed your answers. But sometimes those email interviews seem jarring when a follow-up question is warranted and not available.

And, personally, I would have wanted at least one question about writing Thor, since your '70s run helped turned him into my favorite superhero ever. But that's just me.

Alright, this link should take you directly to the Len Wein interview. It was a lot of fun and I hope you enjoy it.


And I'll be the first to admit that e-mail interviews can turn out somewhat strange due to the format of e-mail. I'm trying to find ways to make the interviews flow better, however.

Your explanation of why Batman is your favorite character uses the same argument Jules Feiffer used for making the opposite choice, when he explained why he preferred Superman over Batman: roughly paraphrased, with his grades in school he couldn't imagine studying for years and being able to invent all those gadgets for the utility belt. It was clear that if a villain trapped him in a steel vault, the only way he could escape would be if he was strong enough to punch his way out due to having been born on another world. I'm with Feiffer on that one.

William Marston claimed he could tell a lot about a comics reader based on which hero he or she preferred among Superman, Batman, or Wonder Woman. I wish he'd written a paper or something about that, because I still wonder what psychological revelations we're all exposing with these choices...
