e-view with Milestone and State creator Dwayne
||After wowing fans with her work on Catwoman and
Titans, Devin Grayson has an intensely personal project coming out -- The
Weinbergs. Get the scoop from DG herself.
||With almost a year of Star Spangled Kid and a smoking
DC crossover for Summer 1999 behind him, Geoff Johns is DC's newest "hit
to watch." But what's in store for his two main
titles, Star Spandled Kid and JSA?
||Now that Dan's got the reins of Aquaman and cast,
is he taking them?
||As the newest scribe to take over the fates of

little about her take on the current Titans and a few of her other projects
||Craig Rousseau is no longer the penciller on Impulse,
but he leaves some fond memories behind. Find out
on the Loebs/Rousseau run now that his tenure with DC's most impulsive teen
Larsen is making the sea king and his supporting cast his own. What's
Kesel 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

Marz is at the center of the Green Lantern debate (Kyle vs. Hal for those

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
|Besides being the writer for Titans and Catwoman,
Devin Grayson has a lot to say in more typical-looking prose as well. For
instance, in this
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 the scoop.
||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 Website to rush this little e-view off to the PadGuy
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?

||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

Generation scored an e-view with
Mark Waid?! You
know it, fan boy!. Read on.

Erik Luke takes
over on Wonder Woman? And more important, will Cassie ever get a real
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
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
||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
20th century Marvel family will play when Thunder comes to hang out
with the Legion of Super Heroes. Click

Unofficial Superboy Website and DCU: Next Generation!).

||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
||Peter David. Love him or hate him, you can't ignore him. Without him,
Aquaman would be symmetrical and Supergirl would be a blob pudding. What's
he up to now? Find out it his
DCU:NG exclusive email
||Jerry Ordway, the scripting mind behind the way retro Power of Shazam
took a little time to share with DCU:NG in his
own email interview as well.

mind. Find out what he thinks about the current DC teens and the last run
