COMIC VINE: What's going on in this Convergence story?

KEITH GIFFEN: What? Tell you the story then totally remove any reason to buy the book?

Well, except for Tim's artwork, which is, pretty much, worth the price of admission alone.

CV: Do you feel like a void is being filled in fans' hearts because Ambush Bug is going to be in this comic?

KG: I have no idea how to answer this. There's a void? In people's hearts? Because of Ambush Bug?


CV: The team up between Supergirl, Lady Quark, and Ambush Bug is an interesting one. How did this come about?

KG: I told Dan to give me the characters no one else wanted to work on.

No... really, that's how I got them.

CV: Were there any changes to the look of these characters in the initial design for this book?

KG: Luthor. We originally drew him in bald but Dan wanted the hippy Luthor so... Y'know, he probably didn't want us messing with a bald guy.


Him being, like, bald 'n' all?

CV: What were all of you excited about when it comes to working on this book?

KG: No one said anything about being excited. I mean, not to me they didn't. Just the usual "don't f**k up".

I get that a lot.

CV: Will Supergirl be wearing her "iconic" red headband?

KG: There's an iconic Supergirl headband?

I'm going to guess the answer to that is no.
