Boston Comic Con 2013’s most popular guest was, without a doubt, Scott Snyder. We had the opportunity to ask Snyder a few quick questions about his current work on Batman, currently in its ‘Zero Year’ story arc:
Scott, it’s a real pleasure to get to meet you, how does it feel to be working on such a great title like ‘Batman’?
Thanks, man! I really appreciate that. We’ve been working really hard on Batman and it’s been quite a journey. Fortunately, the fans have been really incredible and have made it all worthwhile. Greg and I are really proud of the upcoming villains issue (Snyder worked on Batman: The Riddler issue) as well as the upcoming Zero Year arc. Doing the Court of Owls and Joker was a dream come true.
What has been the most fun about Zero Year?
It has been an awesome experience, Greg and I have actually just started putting the final touches on the new Batman suit. We literally got to remake the Batman origin story, while still staying true to the childhood tragedy that Bruce Wayne lived through. It has been a real honor being able to work on it and I am really thankful for the fans that have all been so supportive.
Writer’s Note: Snyder showed me an image on his phone and the Zero year Batman suit looks fantastic
What is it like being one of the few creative teams left on their New 52 relaunch? You and Brian Azzarello are some of the only ones left.
Well, right off the bat, I felt like me and Greg matched up really well. His art style is beautiful and it really fit the Batman Universe that I wanted to write. Batman is also a really big title with a predefined fanbase, but there were multiple Batman titles in the New 52 relaunch and we were really lucky to have so many people praise us for our work.
