Keith and Chris have a ton of questions to ask Dan about writing Superman past and present. And they get to those questions right after they get in come good talk about Bat-Mite and Batman Beyond!

Dan talks about the long road it takes to get to new ideas, from Lois & Clark all the way back to Death and Return of Superman. Swinging back to Batman Beyond, the guys get Dan’s view on how much catch-up is needed in today’s comics and how to balance that with the trade-reading experience.

Along the way, Dan talks about the ending of Convergence and the status of those revisited worlds.

Keith asks a few questions about the other orphans of Convergence and Dan answers as much as he can, as honestly as he can.

Dan talks about the challenges of making a book new-reader friendly while also not making it repetitious for returning fans, a challenge he faces on both Batman Beyond and Lois & Clark.

TSuperman79he guys dig into the past of Superman and Dan talks about the advantages of working with a steady team of collaborators on what amounted to a weekly Superman series for many years.

And Chris finally lets Dan have it for the bait-and-switch of Reign of the Supermen! But all in good fun.

Add in some love for the days of the triangle number and we have a full episode of comic talk and exciting new developments!
