Keep the interviews coming in for peeps like me who couldn't make it this year to San Diego. I love the behind the scene interviews and discussion of the new upcoming stuff.

So I was catching up on Multiversity today and wow, Grant is by far a way out there writer. It got me thinking and remembering his run on New X-men and how much I thought that was by far one of the greatest runs in the X-Men history due to Grant and his skill of writing. I remember how well that run flowed and the major events that made it matter to the rest of the Marvel Universe. Then after that run he was gone from Marvel never to return. I can only imagine what the Marvel Universe would be like if he stayed on.

Now I was just wondering if anyone knew why Grant left Marvel to work at DC during those days. I find the background history of comics and its creators to be really interesting and always wonder why certain things happen that cause creators to leave one company for the other, whether forced or involuntary. So if anyone has information that would be great. Thanks.

@dan12456: right?? Ok so I'm glad I'm not the only one thinking that then. Maybe it will get better explained in the next arc. Here's hoping

So just finished reading the first 8 issues of Grayson and found it enjoyable. I thought the art was great and the story kept me intrigued enough. There was gnawing question that I had throughout the entire book and I just kept putting it away and ignoring it so that it did not ruin my reading experience. The question that I kept thinking about was why would Spyral, a criminal organization who kills, accept a known hero, Nightwing, into their organization and think that he had completely cut all ties off from the hero world? I kept waiting for it to be answered in the book but it never was, unless I missed it. I get that he gained their trust by completing missions for them and working with them and showing that he is not an outright in your face backstabbing traitor, but I just don't get that he would even be let into the organization. Now I did the good thing and just went with the flow and ignored it because the story was fun and you just gotta love Dick Grayson no matter what he's doing. So did anyone else have this question or feel that it was out of place?

On a side note I did notice that when Robin died like all the bat issues did a Requiem issue and the impact was felt throughout the line, but when Dick supposedly died, like there was nothing about it in the other books.I almost forgot that he was dead within the main DCU until I read this series.

i think thats a great idea to depower superman. I don't care for how he will get beat on by some villain, but then also seen as being able to withstand the weight of the world (according to new-52 superman). That doesn't make sense to me, unless the villains are on the same level as him, which is not always the case. He doesn't have to be completely stripped of his powers, but bring him down to a more credible level where he can be beaten because he is not strong enough. I guess I'm just tired of seeing all the villains use kryptonite to make him weaker so that they can fight... just make him a little less powerful is all im saying.

this is sad news to see a great comic not make it on the little screen. Maybe this will force DC/WB to look into netflix or hulu in order to flesh out greater characters or stories and not be constrained to the long seasons and trying to find the right night. I feel that constantine would be great somewhere different than prime time tv.

I hope the story is good but even if it's not it hits that nostalgic nerve of mine. Great to see old school X-Force in OG outfits but with today's art. Visually Im in, let's hope so on story too.

That's a great video! I love seeing them in action like that. I couldn't make it to this year's LBCC so this made me feel like I was there. Great video can't wait to see more. The Joker with goon at the end was great!
