The New Chip on Batman's Shoulder
Citazione

Strap in for seven questions and zero answers with new Batman writer Chip Zdarsky!

In the world of comics, the frankly ridiculous and completely made-up name of "Chip Zdarsky" has come to stand for something special. Under other publishers, Chip has earned awards and accolades for his unique insights and exploration of comics' most iconic characters, from Marvel's Spider-Man to Archie's Jughead Jones. His musings on romance and sexuality have deciphered matters of the heart for thousands of readers, providing a voice to feelings often seemingly impossible to put to words. But beginning on July 5th, Zdarsky is about to take on a challenge worthy of even the most accomplished comic book writer: pleasing Batman fans.

Beginning with Batman #125, Chip Zdarsky will become the lead writer for the Dark Knight's flagship series, with the achingly talented Jorge Jimenez continuing on art. And this time, Batman won't be alone: joining the Caped Crusader as his partner in crimefighting once again will be Tim Drake, the quintessential Robin to many, with some long-deserved recognition now due. So, with this gadabout and raconteur of the sequential image about to embark on his most ambitious pursuit yet, we carved out a piece of Chip's laborious schedule for answers to some very serious and respectful questions worthy of his time.

irst, what gives you the right to be writing Batman and Daredevil at the same time? You think you're Frank Miller or something?

Look, if you're referring to the brief identity fraud so I could steal some of his Batman millions, then, yes, I do think I'm Frank Miller or something.

You're taking over Batman right after Joshua Williamson, who just got finished killing Batman off in "Death of the Justice League." Is, uh, is Batman dead in this book?

wait what

Both your Red Hood story in Batman: Urban Legends and Batman: The Knight deal with the rift between fathers and sons, whether that's Bruce and Jason or Bruce and Alfred. In your Batman series, Bruce is partnered again with Tim Drake. What is that relationship like?

It's a really fun one to write! Tim is, in my mind, the Robin who worked his butt off to be Robin. Not to say the others didn't, but it was a mission for Tim right from the start. Bruce respects his work greatly, even if he doesn't show it all the time, and he's proud of the man he's become. And Tim will always be the Robin who has the most concern for Batman's mental state.

Your previous work in Jughead and Sex Criminals covered the breadth of the sexuality spectrum, providing a multitude of perspectives on queer identities. Over the past year, Tim Drake has been exploring his own sexual identity, opening up to dating boys for the first time. How much of that Tim Drake will we see in your Batman?

It'll really be reflected in his confidence, which comes with knowing yourself. And for Bruce, it'll be a signpost for him that the various Bat-Family members deserve happiness beyond "the mission." Our story doesn't really slow down enough for Tim to go on dates with Bernard, but it's felt in the title for sure!

How thematically connected is Batman: The Knight to your Batman run? Will reading The Knight provide more insight into your Batman intentions?

Uh, the Sales team is looking over at me and nodding their heads furiously. Oh my god...does one of them have a gun?!

There are definitely thematic throughlines from The Knight to Batman. In The Knight, Bruce is full of youthful hubris. In Batman, that youthful hubris catches up to him. In The Knight he's worried about failing because he doesn't know enough. In Batman, he's worried about failing because he knows enough now to see it coming.

It's actually been really nice being able to explore both time periods almost simultaneously. It's helped me get inside Bruce's head a lot more effectively. (I hope!)

Tom King's Batman run was written as one long, 100-issue examination of Batman and Catwoman's relationship. James Tynion IV's run was defined by the many original characters he introduced, providing as many new supporting and opposing cast members to Batman as possible. What do you imagine, or hope, will be the defining characteristic of your Batman tenure?

One hundred issues of new cast members!!

I don't want to answer this because, A: I hate the lamestream media and your trick questions. And B: I really don't want to telegraph things too much. One of my big things is that I want readers to be surprised as we go along. I don't want to ruin that!

Sometimes, I confuse you with Sam Humphries. Do you ever have that problem?

We're both handsome and we both love Prince. So, yeah, I get it

Si parte! :batman:
A new Bat-era begins!
E damn, non voglio sbottonarmi già da subito, ma questo primo numero mi ha dato quei vibes di un CLEAR VISION della propria gestione come un certo..heh, un Batman #655. :dsi:


Vediamo la tecnica del Mind Palace già nelle prime pagine e persino piccole cose come un micro-sleep di due minuti, lattine monster/energy drinks varie.
Cose a me molto famigliari, molto...molto Batman, ecco...or should i say, molto Morrison? :asd:
A differenza del primo numero di King su Batman con Bruce sopra un aereo e la morte a un passo da lui, questo numero mi è sembrato molto più grounded, molto più....reale.
Ma la minaccia? Gli stakes? Il gravitas? 80 anni di war on crime? Del Never-ending Battle? L'ho sentito tutto, i felt everything!!! :sisi:

This city wants to die.

Personaggi tutti scritti in-character, con la LORO voce, Chip sa il fatto suo e mi piace molto il suo storytelling.
Jimenez dall'altra parte sta diventando sempre più bravo, ma di brutto anche...ha dato il meglio qui.
Ora vediamo cos'è questo Failsafe, ma pare un'altra cosa molto Bruce.

Primo numero promosso!

Anche a me è piaciuto molto!  Ovviamente anche io ho percepito Morrison-vibes.  :asd:  Pur con una sua originalità, quindi sono curioso di continuare la lettura.

Si torna a leggere Batman. Ottimo inizio, ma non avevo dubbi :batman:

Letto anch'io.

Sicuramente un buon inizio, c'è la giusta tensione e l'episodio ha funzionato sotto tutti i punti di vista.
Impossibile non notare un certo parallelismo con la serie di Chip di DD con l'eroe

My man Chip, hai tutta la mia attenzione! :batman:

Anche la back-up con Selina e la faccenda di Penguin ha tutto il mio interesse.

Damn, non voglio gufare, ma credo che abbiamo tra le mani una nuova grande Bat-run, amici Leaguers. :zuzu:

Io ci vado cauto, ma ovviamente sono contento di vedere ripresi certi elementi.  :sisi:

Bruce Wayne non esiste più!

Tra l'altro, anche qui come dicevo nel topic di The New Champion of Shazam per Geoff, questi pg e questi elementi non sono stati creati da Morrison, ma chi vogliamo prendere in giro? Se adesso Ram V si è messo ad usare Barbatos in Det Com e ora Chip qui mi usa la
