From time to time, I want to make special interviews available to you faithful
DCU: Next Generation fans. Just consider it my way of giving back to you
for helping to make the DCU: Next Generation Web site the coolest and most
happening place on the Web to follow those way cool teen heroes of the DC
brought a very Kirby-esque feel to Superboy lately. Find out his thoughts
about his new run and a little bit of what's coming up.
|What doesn't Chuck Dixon write? As the writer for Robin, Nightwing, Birds
of Prey, and several Batman stories, he's probably the second most influential
person in the Batman camp. He's created such memorable characters as
Lynx, Spoiler, and the new Robin. In his
interview, I had a chance to ask about it.
|After establishing his place as one of DC's top artist on the monthly
Nightwing series, Scott McDaniel has garnered a large fan following. In this
DCU: NG e-view,
Scott talks a bit about Nightwing, art styles, and his faith.
|Next to God, John
Byrne knows more about comics than just about any living comic book writer

Wonder Girl, too. Find out a little about his approach to telling stories
in his e-view.
|Ron Marz is
at the center of the Green Lantern debate (Kyle vs. Hal for those of you
who have slept through the past few years), but he's also been a writer for
Superboy AND has high hopes for a DC teen of his own creation -- Cary Wren,
the Green Lantern of the 30th Century.
||What's the story behind the creation of Spoiler, Lynx, and the newest
Robin? Find out from Tom
Lyle, who co-created the characters with Chuck Dixon.
|I had a chance to talk (not email, TALK on the phone) with hot fan-fave
artist/writer Phil Jimenez a little about his work in the comics biz and
about the Titans vs. JLA Project he's working on with Devin Grayson.
|Besides being the writer for Titans and Catwoman, Devin Grayson has a
lot to say in more typical-looking prose as well. For instance,
essay entitled Eve and I, she tackles the oft-asked question, "What's
it like being a FEMALE comics writer?"
||What around the corner for the Legion of Super-Heroes? I contacted
Tom Peyer to get
||Now Peter David is gone from Aquaman and is taking over the creative
reins on Young Justice. I collaberated with Nik from The Unofficial Superboy

answers to the YJ questions on everyone's minds.
||Geoff Johns and Lee Moder will be soon bringing DC teen fans a brand
spanking new Star Spangled Kid. What's the scoop?
Find out in their
||Now That the newest incarnation of Teen Titans is over, I was curious
-- some fans would be thrilled by the news, others disturbed since
characters they had grown to love would disappear into comic book limbo for
awhile. But what would
Jurgens feel ... ?
||By now, you probably know that Eric Luke and Yanick Paquette are taking
over Wonder Woman after John Bynre leaves the book. What does that mean for
Donna Troy and the new Wonder Girl (and the original DC Amazon herself too!)?
Why not look for answers in
exclusive interview ?

Messner-Loebs' take on his Impulse writing? Is he staying on the
book for the long haul? Will Bart and Carol ever hook up and actually go
on a date?
||First Todd Dezago was on Young Justice, then he was off the book. Find
out why (and some of his upcoming plan) in this collaborative
with Todd (a joint effort between The Unofficial Superboy Website and
DCU: Next Generation!).
||No one thought anyone could take over Impulse after Humberto Ramos left
the book, but Craig Rousseau has done an admirable job pencilling the Flash
Junior's adventures and designing neato new characters like Song of Justice
and Evil Eye. Will he stay on the book? What's coming around the bend for
the planning -impaired speedster? Craig
spills the beans
in his e-view exclusive.
||Together with Mark Waid, Brian Augustyn helped bring Impulse to a place
of prominence in the DCU. He and Waid also recreated the first year of the
original JLA. What's Brian up to now, and what's in store for Impulse? Find
out in Brian's e-view
||After this whole CM3 thing, I thought it would be nice to find out from
Jerry Ordway if the name change was permanent and what part, if any, the

||Erik Larsen on Aquaman?! Yep. And to help Aquafans get a sneak peek,
Erik shared a little about his plans for the sea king and his crew
in this DCU:NG

he up to now? Find out it his
DCU:NG exclusive email

took a little time to share with DCU:NG in his
