The DC writer sits down and talks to us about his upcoming projects!
When Isotope Comics is involved, then you know that it is a guaranteed fantastic event! The San Francisco comic book shop teamed up with Bloomingdale's in San Francisco, Details magazine and Warner Brothers to host a signing in the popular department store. The turn-out for the event was fantastic in that it allowed fans of the heralded DC writer to meet him, and have a 'Batman martini' to boot! As always, James Robinson gives us a taste of his witty British humor in addition to some insight on what he plans on working on in the future. We discuss his love for Donna Troy, in addition to his plans for the 'Blackest Night: Starman' one-shot set for release this January.
I know what you might be thinking, "Bloomingdale's? Why?" If you stop to think about it, it does seem to make a lot of sense. In fact, one can go so far as to say that it is a good reflection of the way the industry seems to be shifting. With Lady Gaga getting her own comic book (sold only at select Marc Jacobs retailers,) and Hollywood looking to comic books for inspiration and new franchises to build; it makes sense that an event like this one could take place in the high fashion forward department store. Overall, it was a fantastic event and James Robinson was an absolute pleasure to talk to. A big 'thank you' to all those people involved in putting the fantastic event together.
