    Bruce Wayne returns to the DCU!

    Follow TFAW on Twitter
    Where in the world is Bruce Wayne? Or, to be more accurate, when in the world is Bruce Wayne?

    It has been nearly a year since comic book readers last saw Wayne, better known to most as the original Batman. While battling a god-like villain named Darkseid during DC Comics’ Final Crisis series, Batman was hit by an energy beam that sent him hurling out of control to an unknown place in time. Bruce Wayne hasn’t been seen or heard from since. Until now.

    In 2010, DC Comics will launch a new series created and written by legendary comic book scribe Grant Morrison. Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne finds the original Batman trying to reclaim his memory, his identity and his proper place in time and space. The series marks the return of one of comic book’s most iconic characters and, Morrison says, begins an important new chapter in a complex series of Batman stories that the author has been developing and intertwining over the past five years.

    Morrison recently took time with USA TODAY’s John Geddes to answer questions about the upcoming series and provide some insight and hints about where the story will lead.

    Q: In Final Crisis, the original Batman, Bruce Wayne, is hit by the Omega Beam during a battle with the villain Darkseid. This beam sends Wayne spinning into the unknown, cast off into the time stream. He is thought to be dead by both friends and enemies. In the aftermath, the role of Batman is assumed by the original Robin, Dick Grayson, and the role of Robin is assumed by Bruce Wayne’s son, Damian. What else should readers know as a lead-in to The Return of Bruce Wayne?

    A: Could there possibly be anything else to know after that masterful summing-up?

    To be honest, I don’t think readers need to know even that much in order to enjoy Return. Although it’s also the latest chapter in the long-running, “definitive” Batman epic I’ve been trying to pull off since 2005, Return has been structured and written to read as a complete story on its own — everything a new reader needs to know will be in the pages of the book itself. Read all the graphic novel collections together, however, and a much bigger, more complex and involving story will emerge.

    Return is a fairly intricate time-travel story in which the world’s greatest hero, the optimum man, is up against the supreme challenge to his ingenuity and skill. How does Batman get out of the ultimate trap? It has a mystery and an apocalyptic countdown going on, there are some major twists and reveals, and it sets up big changes to the Batman universe status quo.

    Q: It’s my understanding that Return will follow Bruce Wayne through different eras as he makes his way — presumably — back to the modern day. Any hints on which eras we might see Bruce exploring in his quest to find his proper place in time?

    A: The first episode is set in the Late-Paleolithic Era, the second is in Pilgrim-era Gotham Village, and we also get to see Gotham in Western or noir style.

    Each of the stories is a twist on a different “pulp hero” genre — so there’s the caveman story, the witchhunter/Puritan adventurer thing, the pirate Batman, the cowboy, the P.I. — as a nod toward those mad old 1950s comics with Caveman Batman and Viking Batman adventures. It’s Bruce Wayne’s ultimate challenge — Batman vs. history itself!

    I’ve tried to thoroughly research each time period so that the stories work not only as at least fairly plausible reconstructions of life in the real 17th or 19th centuries but also as romanticized “pulp” versions too, while at the same time referencing the more extravagant history of the fictional DC Comics Universe in the background.

    Q: How many issues are planned for The Return of Bruce Wayne series?

    A: There are six issues of Return. The first one’s 38 pages long, the rest are 30.

    Q: Without giving away any spoilers, how will/would the return of Bruce Wayne to the present day affect the dynamic of the current Batman & Robin duo? Might we see Damian Wayne develop into a new character?

    A: As I mentioned above, the status quo of the Batman universe will be changed completely after this book. This is the beginning of a new and different take on the idea of Batman as we approach the 010s — the latest of these ever more fleeting and flimsy modern decades!

    Q: There are certain readers out there who will undoubtedly complain about yet another rebirth or reincarnation of a famous comic book character. What about Return is going to be different from these past stories in which iconic characters have been brought back to life?

    A: As we saw at the end of the Final Crisis book, Bruce Wayne was never dead, only AWOL, so this was never a literal “back to life” story. And I like to think the series will have a wider general appeal than some of the continuity driven “death and rebirth”-type stories we’ve seen before.

    This is more for me about putting Batman/Bruce Wayne through my own, and my collaborators’ version, of the ultimate test of who and what he is. So far I’ve had him overcome the Devil, Madness and Death; now we see him, truly lost, amnesiac, and stripped down to basic human survival mode in some extremely hostile environments and unfamiliar situations. He’s the best fighter in his world, he’s one of the smartest and most driven men who ever lived, but we’ve seen him outwit the Joker 10,000 times. This was a way of taking the character off the grid, as they say, and reminding readers what kind of man he is and what he’s capable of. If you wonder why Batman is so cool — here’s why Batman is so cool.

    This is an attempt to look at a very familiar character from some unusual angles. And it’s about Bruce and who he is — I want to remind people how the man and the mask are inseparable parts of a terrifying whole.

    Q: You’re a writer who has never been afraid to experiment with storylines involving major characters. What are some of the challenges you face when developing stories specific to such a high-profile character as Batman/Bruce Wayne?

    A: The challenge is to keep everything familiar while making what appear to be far-reaching changes and having characters react as if those changes are permanent!

    Batman needs to be eternally young, renewed like some pagan Fertility King to suit the changing tastes of his audience in each fresh generation. Batman can never grow old or die — and stories, no matter how good, which depict these events cannot be considered “canon.” Batman was born in 1939 and would now be a sprightly 70-year-old if he aged like the rest of us. The “real” Batman, however, enjoys godlike immortality and must always be 30-ish moneyed orphan, Bruce Wayne, who dresses as a bat to fight crime. The trick is to tell stories which expand the limits of how far you can go and still maintain the integrity of the basic idea. And everything has to be done with the knowledge and understanding that I — as the current writer — am only a tiny link in a long chain of all the people who already have or will one day tell stories about Batman.

    Q: Your writing for Batman over the years has seen you interpret the character through a variety of lenses (a Zen-warrior, a darkly philosophical detective, the traditional hero, etc.) With Return, what type of Bruce Wayne are we going to see?

    A: All the elements that make up this great pop icon will be upfront — his intellect, his detective skills, his martial arts abilities, his heroism and compassion and grit. His chiseled cheekbones! In this series, in particular, he represents us, humanity, at our very best and most resourceful. And, in the first issue, we get to see the many advantages ninja training has over the traditional caveman grunt-and-lunge technique.

    Batman’s story begins with Bruce Wayne, kneeling by the bodies of his murdered mom and dad. To me, at the most basic root of Batman is the story of the ultimate survivor. The Return of Bruce Wayne— a title that becomes increasingly ominous as the story progresses — puts that aspect of Batman under the microscope.

    Q: Themes play such a huge role in most, if not all, of your writing. Is there an overarching theme running throughout the story of Return?

    A: Survival. Not only the physical survival of our hero but the survival through time of memories, grudges, artifacts, ideas. What persists? What endures?

    Q: Over the years, you’ve been involved with some of the most well-known and beloved characters out there — Batman, Superman, JLA, X-Men and Fantastic Four, just to name a few. Are there other iconic comic characters you’d like to reinterpret or for whom you’d like to develop storylines?

    A. I’m very happy with the take on the Captain Marvel/Shazam universe that appears as part of the upcoming Multiversity series of books, but that’s it for the moment. Along with Geoff Johns and Marv Wolfman, I’m part of the consulting team at DC Entertainment involved in rethinking some of DC’s big characters for the screen. So between that and the comics, I think I’ve had my say on just about every comic book character I’ve ever had any interest in.

    Q: Who else comprises the creative team attached to Return? Can you speak about how it’s been to work with this team?

    A: I haven’t seen any of the art yet. The book launches in the summer and each issue is drawn by a different artist, so that side of it has barely got underway. I know Chris Sprouse is penciling the first one, so I’m fairly confident it’ll be the best comic set in the Late Paleolithic Era that you’ll have seen for a very long time. I’m a huge fan of Chris’ work, so I’m keen to see what he’s done. I think Frazer Irving might do the second one, cementing his reputation as the comic world’s most prominent Puritan Goth Adventure artist.

    Q: Aside from Return, what new work can readers look forward to from Grant Morrison in 2010?

    A: Mostly Batman work — I’m doing at least another year of stories with Dick Grayson and Damian Wayne in the Batman and Robin book before that book starts to dovetail with Return and we rush headlong and screaming into the next big, earth-shattering, game-changing twist in the life of Batman.

    I’m slowly working my way through the Multiversity sequence of books and loving it. I’ve set myself the task of making each issue the best superhero story I’ve ever written, so I’m growing them patiently and all together before I hand the scripts out to artists.

    There’s also the Joe the Barbarian book with Sean Murphy, which starts in January at Vertigo and is my first new, creator-owned comic for a while.

    Mezzo and Pirus’ King of the Flies

    Set in a suburb that is both nowhere and everywhere, King of the Flies is a glorious bastard, combining the intricacy and subtlety of the best European graphic novels with a hyperdetailed, controlled noir style derived from the finest American cartoonists.

    Mezzo and Pirus, previously best known in Europe for a series of cynical, brutal gangster stories, have abandoned their guns and gals for this cycle of suburban stories. But in King of the Flies the violence has just (for the most part) been internalized.

    King of the Flies first appears to be a series of unrelated short stories, each starring (and narrated by) a different protagonist, but it soon becomes obvious that these seemingly disparate episodes weave together to form a single complex narrative–with events that are only briefly seen (or even referred to), and then revisited from different perspectives–revolving around Eric, a ne’er-do-well, drug-taking teenager at war with his stepfather and, apparently, the whole world. (He is the titular King.)

    King of the Flies is designed as a trilogy of albums, which will combine to form a single graphic novel of stunning intricacy and intensity. (Vol. 2, “The Beginning of All Things,” will be released by Fantagraphics in the Summer of 2010.)

    I don’t know about you, but after seeing the five-page First Look, my interest is piqued. May have to add this to my winter reading list.

    Save 30% on Extinction

    Scouring through this month’s new offerings, I happened upon a title that sounded pretty cool and thought I’d share. Extinction sounds like just the thing for the person who loves post-apocalyptic yarns.

    Dr. Chris Perry spent the good part of his adulthood dealing with the dead. A brilliant pathologist, his position as Chief Medical Examiner at Queen Elizabeth Hospital provided him with the perfect working environment. A deadly virus swept across the globe, wiping out 90% of life on Earth, but some who were infected didn’t die. Chris must find a cure for the disease before a madman, calling himself Hannibal, and his army sacks Chris’ haven on Prince Edward Island and harvests the uninfected population as cattle.

    So if you’re interested, we’re offering a pretty sweet discount on this title: now through 10/9, nab Extinction for 30% off the cover price!

    Religion in Comics

    Religion has been a taboo in the comic book industry for decades. But with so much rich material stemming from so many religions, it was only a matter of time before pioneering artists paved the way for books we’re seeing today.

    For some, these books are an affront to their sensibilities. Seeing Jesus battle zombies (Jesus Hates Zombies Lincoln Hates Werewolves) or reading a story that chronicles Earth’s apocalypse at the hands of a man-made godlike superhero (Warren Ellis’ new Supergod series) might not agree with some people.

    For others, a mutant messiah makes sense in the wake of “House of M” (Cable) and the story of God sending angels to cleanse the world after losing faith in humanity (Legion, which is a precursor to the upcoming film) or a story about a post apocalyptic world where every last superhero suddenly disappears (Rapture) are not only intriguing, they’re downright impossible to pass up!


     

    It’s okay if these titles offend you. Everyone’s entitled to their own opinion. I for one, am very much intrigued by these upcoming offerings and have been enjoying Cable recently and have dug Rapture thus far.

    So are you excited about these titles or do you abhor them? Have another religion inspired title I didn’t talk about in the article? Feel free to voice your opinion or comment below!

    Have you heard about Kill Audio?

    One of the most unique and powerful minds in rock unleashes one of the strangest and thrilling comics of 2009!

    Kill Audio follows the adventures of an immortal little troll who struggles to find purpose in a land where creativity is a controlled substance. When musical creativity spirals into chaos, Kill Audio discovers his life’s mission.

    He’s on the road to meet Clockwork, the Keeper of Sight & Sound. And he has one simple question: “Why can’t I die?” From the creator of the best-selling The Amory Wars!

    Supported by a wildly eccentric posse and a nemesis hell-bent on proving his mortality, Kill Audio takes on nonsensical musical subgenres while traipsing across a vivid landscape, all of which could only come from the intense mind of Claudio Sanchez. Not bad, considering this isn’t his main gig. (Claudio is the lead singer/guitarist from Coheed and Cambria.)

    Now that you know a little more about what the book’s about, what do you think of Kill Audio? Did you dig The Amory Wars? Let us know below.

    The Anchor–Exclusive Interview With Phil Hester & Brian Churilla

    The Anchor. Holy warrior, unholy war. Freak of nature, beast of burden, hulking outcast, medieval prize fighter, Viking raider, God’s leg-breaker.

    One thousand years ago a hulking outcast sought refuge in the crumbling ruins of an ancient monastery, offering in return the one thing he had to give–his fists.

    Transformed into an immortal warrior monk standing at the gates of Hell itself to keep our world free from its invading armies, The Anchor is mysteriously tricked into centuries of slumber. But today, this holy warrior rises to battle all the unholy monsters unleashed during his slumber.

    We had the chance to chat with Phil Hester and Brian Churilla, the creators of this exciting new series from Boom Studios! Here are the fruits of that chat.

    TFAW.com: Phil, you’ve spent a lot of time writing complex, dark stories and The Anchor certainly looks like it’s going down a similar road. What can you tell us about the tone of the book? What’s it going to feel like?

    Phil Hester (PH): In the same vein as The Coffin or Deep Sleeper, but with an emphasis on action. In the past most of my protagonists have been everyman types thrown into bizarre situations. In The Anchor, the main character is the bizarre factor thrown into our world. So, while I hope fans of my work find the same kind of thoughtfulness they found in my other books, there will be a lot of balls-out fight scenes. I’d say “teeth rattling” would best describe the feel of the book.

    TFAW.com: Little saint, God’s leg-breaker? Is it safe to say that religion will play a key role in The Anchor?

    PH: Only obliquely. The Anchor is a Christian monk, but we’ll see in the first issue that he doesn’t even know what a psalm is. His training, we’ll come to find out, is very unorthodox. As far as he knows his powers come from the almighty and that’s good enough for him. We don’t dig much deeper than that. There’s no time for navel gazing in his world or our funnybook. It relates to Christianity about as accurately as The Mighty Thor does to worshipers of Odin, but there’s certainly no effort to demean it at all.

    As Chris Walken said in defense of The Prophecy when some interviewer bemoaned the idea of evil angels (paraphrasing): “I’m sure real angels are good. This is a film.”

    The Anchor #2 (Cover A)
    The Anchor #2 (Cover A)

    TFAW.com: Starting a brand-new series and establishing mythos must be very exciting and exhausting.  What can you tell us about our hero and how’d you come up with his name?

    PH: The Anchor doesn’t have a full recollection of his own identity in issue #1, so we’ll be learning along with him. I hate to spoil plot points, so I’ll just say that every time The Anchor kills a monster, he gets a little bit of his memory back. Here’s what we know: He’s basically Gandhi’s soul in The Incredible Hulk’s body, his soul is in hell preventing demons from invading Earth, the wounds he suffers in hell show up on his body on Earth, and he’s on a mission to destroy any demonic critters that make it to our world.

    The name came from stumbling across the practices of Anchorite monks, who walled themselves up in the foundations of churches to prevent outside influence. That extreme commitment to a cause is both startling and inspirational. What kind of person does that? A person who has rejected the world as he or she sees it and is looking for something else. Also, we’ll see that our main character has other reasons for the nickname when we get a flashback in #2. In the end, it implies a rock-solid base, unwavering strength–that’s our guy!

    TFAW.com: Has this idea been simmering for awhile or did inspiration hit you recently?

    PH: It’s pretty recent. I cooked it up just for Brian to draw.

    TFAW.com: How did you two come to meet and work together?

    PH: I’d been an admirer of Brian’s work since I saw it in the Archaia book, The Engineer. I emailed him to buy some pages and we hit it off well enough to work together. I sent Brian my list of 20 or so unpublished proposals and he rejected them all! As I said earlier, my heroes tend to be average Joes, and Brian wanted to draw an iconic character. I was turning all that around in my head when I saw a travel special about anchorite monks at Lindisfarne. He seemed to dig it and away we went.

    TFAW.com: Brian, you’re a relative newcomer on the comics scene, where have you been hiding? I mean, your art is pretty incredible. How is it that we haven’t seen a lot more of you?

    Brian Churilla (BC): I’ve been around, cutting my teeth for a while now. I started out doing a graphic novel with Fred Van Lente called Watchdogs, went on to do The Engineer for Archaia, Dark Horse Presents, Rex Mundi, Creepy for DH and We Kill Monsters with Red5, to name a few. I’m definitely doing my best work in The Anchor because aesthetically, it’s smack dab in the ol’ wheelhouse, so I feel very inspired.

    The Anchor #2 (Cover B)
    The Anchor #2 (Cover B)

    TFAW.com: How has the character design process gone?  Has The Anchor changed a lot since his initial inception?

    BC: There have been some changes for sure, but overall, he’s retained his likeness since his initial design. There are a lot of monsters to design, a lot, and who wouldn’t want to draw monsters all the time?

    TFAW.com: Anything else we should expect to find in The Anchor?

    PH: I think there will be a more romantic bent to this than anyone might suspect looking at the previews and first issues. Also, I can’t help myself, even though this is billed as a punch-up kind of comic, it will get heavy and/or touching when you least expect it!

    TFAW.com: Let’s say I’m a reader who’s on the fence about The Anchor. How are you going to push me over the edge?  What’s your used-car salesman pitch?

    PH: There’s an under-served market in comics, and that’s readers craving smart action. We get plenty of dumb action from superhero comics and plenty of smart shoe gazing from lit comix. We’re trying to wrangle the best of both worlds. I think we offer thrills and spills coupled with plenty of emotionally resonant moments and witty dialogue. Imagine Michael Chabon writing play by play for a demolition derby. That’s us.

    Thanks for taking the time to talk with us about The Anchor, guys. We’re eagerly awaiting October 28th.

    For those of you who’d like to see a bit more of the book, check out the First Look. The first issue is available for pre-order now, so hurry and get your copy while you can.

    Phil and Brian were also kind enough to give us some signed copies, so be sure to pre-order The Anchor #1 or comment below and we’ll throw your name in the hat to get one of those coveted copies!
