I love Scott and I love his runs on both Batman and Swamp Thing. It was such a treat to be able to read both in the same week. I can't wait for his take on Joker.

Also, FIRST!

by the end of this interview I had a smile as wide as joker's face on the wall.

Scott Snyder is the man

Boy is he geeky as hell. What ever. So damn excited the Joker stories. Never had I seen a title go from an all title cross-over to another all title cross-over. Balls. I didn't like how he said Killing Joke is not a Barbarra Gordon story but a Jim Gordon story. It's neither. It's all Joker. Jim Gordon, and Barbarra Gordon are characters who have shitty things happen to them. There is no more personal issue for the Joker then Killing Joke.

Comic-Con can't top this. My week is made. Wish I was there in person though.

Two-Face is my all time favorite Batman villain. I cannot tell you how much I'd love to see Snyder tell a story featuring him. PLEASE SCOTT! MAKE IT HAPPEN!

The #0 issue sounds awesome! And I cant wait for his Joker story

#9 Posted by ALittleTooRaph (91 posts) - - Show Bio

This was such a great interview! Snyder has to stay on Team Batman at least long enough to get to those Two Face and Riddler stories he mentioned. The way he was talking about the Joker story, though, had me going crazy. You just can't beat The Joker, and Snyder's should be great!

Scott Snyder is doing such amazing things on Batman, I can't wait for more!

Great interview! Tony, you didn't appear to be on laughing gas, today. And you're wearing a ... gasp.... tie. Shocking. Or is that some sort of cosplay thing?

Great interview, though. I don't think anyone has gotten me excited about Batman (in comics) in quite some time, but Snyder's doing that.

#15 Posted by n8hobbs (19 posts) - - Show Bio

I really hope he stays as long as he can. Especially through the Riddler and Two-Face stories he mentioned. That'd be fantastic! :D

#16 Posted by RetroLegends (12 posts) - - Show Bio

WOW! Scott keep it coming. Great stories for each of your books.

"Avengers vs X-Men, who wins? Batman." Best response ever. And great interview Tony. Keep up the awesome writing Scott, Batman has never been better in your capable hands!

#25 Posted by snikt_0 (15 posts) - - Show Bio

Talked with Scott at the Charlotte Heroes Con in June and what a cool dude. You can tell he really loves his craft and is writing some of the best comics in the industry. I am still a Marvel guy at heart but Snyder's Batman run is quickly becoming one of my favorite collections. Keep it up Scott!

#26 Posted by zombietag (1611 posts) - - Show Bio

could you find a cooler guy?? a better writer for batman? i think NOT

#27 Posted by crazyflashfan11 (182 posts) - - Show Bio

well... What About TALON?

#28 Posted by The Lobster (1698 posts) - - Show Bio

Not a lot of talk on Swamp Thing or his upcoming Talon series, which is weird since one is about to have an epic crossover with Animal Man (Rotworld) and the other is a new series that he's working on with a new writer which is great that he persuaded DC to give this writer with little comic book experience a chance to show them what he's got.

#29 Posted by theoknows (42 posts) - - Show Bio

Scott Snyder and Jeff Lemire are the current gods of DC. Wish we could have gotten an update on Swamp Thing and AV.

#30 Posted by Spidey_Guy1 (66 posts) - - Show Bio

Scott is cool guy and I love the work he's done with Batman during the New 52 era. It's my favorite DC book. I'm very anxious to see what he does with the Joker.

#31 Posted by Grey56 (801 posts) - - Show Bio

He seems like a nice fella, truly he does. And I will admit I'm excited to see what he does with the Joker. I even read over the Suicide stories with Harley (the wife's books) just to apprise myself of what might be coming. All that said - I'm still very disappointed with what he did with Mr.Freeze. That's putting it as mildy as I can. I won't get too negative here about it to remain polite - but I desperately want to avoid what happened in the annual.

#32 Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus (6958 posts) - - Show Bio

Well that's good he makes it clear we dont have to read the other titles just to know what's going on with this upcoming Joker storyline. And that sounds like positive news he came up with regard to Stephanie I think.

#33 Posted by thveej (203 posts) - - Show Bio

Scott Snyder is such a G. Such a down to earth cool guy. Batman has been amazing (really amazing since pre 52 detective comics + gates of Gotham), knowing how scott writes very dark stories (I mean that detective comic run was so dark) I am really, really excited to see the upcoming joker run. Joker is gonna do some messed up thing, SOOOOOO EXCITED!

I love Scott. A freaking amazing writer and you can't help but get excited for his stories and what's going on simply by how he excited HE gets. You can tell from watching/listening to him speak that he's as much a fan of the medium as he is a writer. It's a pleasure to see.

The man has the darkest imagination I have ever seen. I love it.

Me too! He's gotta be my favourite comic writer at the moment. I wonder if he's excited for The Dark Knight Rises. Lol obviously! I could so see him write an amazing Riddler story. Anything he writes is pure golden.

That Cass mention was a bit.... I don't wanna say rude, but... off?

I dunno. I mean, the writers have already said a dozen times in a dozen different places that they'd love to write them back, but can't.

#41 Posted by Ganthetsward20 (724 posts) - - Show Bio

Its really cool that Scott is so in to the characters he's writing. Makes me pumped to read his work. True I dont love the batman book, but that's more about me not liking the character. I loved reading the American Vampire Trades and I really love Swamp Thing. I'd be interested in seeing Scott taking on another character in the DC like Frankenstein Agents of SHADE, or something along those lines but only if he really wanted too.

#42 Posted by dbzmaster789 (116 posts) - - Show Bio

Man what a cool dude, in about 5 years or maybe even less his name will be Legendary!

#43 Posted by kagato (260 posts) - - Show Bio

I love how enthusiastic Scott is about Batman, honestly, they way he talks about Batman and how much he digs the character is how i feel when i read the stuff he writes. I cant imagine anyone else on the book now, im super excited to see what he comes up in every issue, how can such a nice guy have such a dark imagination though lol? Im always scared he will get moved onto something else, im trusting that DC know a good thing when they see it and leave him alone to continue writing these wonderful stories.

at the end of the interview I stood up on my chair and did the bad Spider-man dance from spider-man 3

#45 Posted by Fantasgasmic (1092 posts) - - Show Bio

There's ONE thing Scott said that worried me about this upcoming story. Joker shouldn't KNOW that Barbara Gordon is part of the bat-family. He didn't shoot Batgirl and take naked pictures of Batgirl, he did that to Barbara Gordon. He didn't know she was Batgirl when he did all that stuff in the Killing Joke. I'll chalk that up to a slip of the tongue.

I've said it before, I'll say it again, Scott Snyder writes 2 of the 3 BEST books of new52 (Animal Man is the other one).

I'm also gonna say this: Scott Snyder top 5 people in comics. Not in terms of art/writing ability or anything, just stand up, all around nice-guy, good HUMAN BEINGS. Top 5, easy.

#46 Posted by lareeth (16 posts) - - Show Bio

Needs more American Vampire! I'm not interested in Batman, tell us gossip and plans for American Vampire.

#47 Posted by Pauldro (214 posts) - - Show Bio

What about Swamp Thing?

#48 Posted by SandMan_ (4581 posts) - - Show Bio

#49 Posted by Brownghost (47 posts) - - Show Bio

@SandMan_: hes really a dark writer and superman doesnt need that

@Brownghost: To be honest, at this point I don't care if its dark as long as its good.
