From Jack Holt: I hope magic still has some tricks up its sleeve, some quirks that keep the good Doctor on his toes. I like the idea of Doc using a system of magic, but somehow I hate the idea of magic itself being limited. Fairy queens, will o’ wisps, and the music of the […]

From Kenneth W. Lieck: 1) Has your previous Dr. Fate series [the Flash back-up w/the delicious Mike Golden art] ever been collected, and/or is it fated to face collection if this Fate fares well and doesn’t fale… er, fail? 2) Since I asked the above question, I guess I should ask if this storyline will […]
From Forrest: Could you give us a mission-statement type quotation for people who don’t read comics anymore but are open-minded? DOCTOR FATE should appeal to anyone who believes real life can be its own mystical experience. How’s that?
I’ll try to answer one question a day while I’m working on these scripts. This one’s from Neil Bradbury: I was wondering whether the Fate book would be rooted firmly within the DCU and it’s myriad crossovers, or whether you’re going to be allowed some degree of independence?

Interesting Steven Grant column on how we “respect” the past in comics.

I’ll take just about any excuse to write Superman, but there aren’t […]
Fox Attacks: Black America The fairness and balance are enough to make you weep — or throw bombs.
I had been looking forward to posting something more about Doctor Fate after I finished the script I was writing. Unfortunately, I crashed instead — spent the entire weekend either asleep or staring slack-jawed at the walls. Didn’t go anywhere, didn’t even talk to anyone until Sunday night. Phew. But it was a good kind […]
Comments, anyone? (You’re allowed to be critical.) (More on Doctor Fate after I get some sleep…)
