INTERVIEW: SCOTT SNYDER ON ‘BATMAN: ZERO YEAR – DARK CITY’, PART ONE
By Chris Sims
Today, in the first part of our interview, Snyder discusses the return of Dr. Death, why he wanted to pay homage to Frank Miller’s Year One and Dark Knight Returns while at the same time breaking away from them as much as possible, and why “Dark City” was the most challenging part of the story to write.
ComicsAlliance: So let’s start with Dr. Death. He’s a character who’s commonly regarded as the first supervillain to show up in Detective Comics, but I’m curious as to why you went with him rather than Hugo Strange or the Mad Monk, who are both earlier foes for Batman.
Scott Snyder: I actually went back and considered using the Mad Monk in a different way, but I didn’t think I could pull it off. I’ve always loved the idea of Dr. Death and Lord Death Man. Not necessarily the iteration that was in Detective Comics back then, but this idea of Batman facing a character with death in his moniker at the beginning. So much of what Bruce needs to learn, I think, and this actually comes in a lot in the next section, “Wild City,” is that being Batman means transcending death. Both believing that you can physically, over and over again, but more than that, giving yourself up to this bigger idea and sacrificing any sort of personal life and your body to be larger. Your own physicality, your own mortality.

I like when things are hard; I’m very competitive. If something seems difficult or impossible, it interests me.
2014 EISNER AWARD NOMINEES ANNOUNCED: IMAGE LEADS, STRONG SHOWINGS FROM DARK HORSE AND VERTIGO
San Diego Comic-Con International 2014 is looming just over the horizon, and that means that it’s almost time for the annual Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards. Today, the nominees were announced, and Image Comics led the pack with 20 nominations across all categories, including four out of five of the nominations for Best Continuing Series, with the remaining spot going to Matt Fraction and David Aja’s Hawkeye at Marvel.
Also interesting to note: While there were several nominations for Vertigo titles like Trillium and The Wake, DC’s “New 52″ line of superhero titles was almost completely shut out, with their only nod coming from Scott Snyder’s nomination for Best Writer.
I think we’ll see ‘em hit stores in the next few months. I have a full set of the minifigs, and Groot on my desk and NO ONE WILL TAKE THEM AWAY FROM ME. Pictures in a few weeks—working it all out.
