ASB0

All-Star Batman, one of the flagship titles in DC Comics's Rebirth initiative, is something of a showcase for writer Scott Snyder, allowing him to work with the highest caliber of collaborates from John Romita Jr, to Declan Shalvey and Jordie Bellaire, to Jock, Tula Lotay and more --- all while re-imagining Batman's deadly rogues' gallery to better fit modern molds of terror.

This week sees the conclusion of All-Star Batman's first arc, which has been a rip-roaring adventure road story featuring Batman, Two-Face, and a host of villains out to get them. ComicsAlliance chatted to Scott Snyder about his approach to reinventing villains, collaborating with some of the best artists in the world, and where he stands on the Batman v Bruce Wayne debate.

ICYMI: ‘All-Star Batman’ #3 Had The Most Surprising Return Of The Year (This Week)

All-Star Batman #3, DC Comics

2016 has been a pretty amazing year for people who love obscure and forgotten DC Comics characters (read: me), but this week, the Rebirth era got its most shocking return yet. As Batman and Two-Face continued their road trip upstate in the pages of All-Star Batman, beset on all sides by assassins, arch-villains, and other assorted ne'er-do-wells, they run straight into one of the most unexpected characters in a long time --- and no, I'm not talking about KGBeast. That dude came back last month. This one's even weirder.

The Artist’s Spider-Man: The Longevity and Adaptability of John Romita Jr.

ArtistsSpidey-RomitaJR

With the exception of his father, who still occasionally picks up a pencil or inking brush, nobody has been drawing Spider-Man longer than John Romita Jr.

Over the course of nearly 40 years with the character (longer if you count that he came up with the idea for The Prowler for 1969's Amazing Spider-Man #78), Romita has penciled somewhere in the range of 140 Spider-Man comics. Of course, longevity and productivity aren't the only hallmarks of a great artist, and Romita Jr. has done far more than simply pump out issues. He has changed with the times, adapted his style, and co-created some cornerstone Spider-Man characters.
