Friend-of-the-ferret and fellow Columbusite Chris Sprouse is interviewed by Newsarama. It’s mostly about his latest Tom Strong mini-series being in limbo after the dissolution of the Wildstorm imprint, but he also talks a bit about the various writers he’s collaborated with, and that’s where I caught this interesting tidbit about Grant Morrison:
“[Grant’s scripts] are very loose, not a lot there…”
and this, specifically about the Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne script:
“There wasn’t a lot of dialogue in the finished book. There was none in the script,” Sprouse said. “Grant wanted to do all the dialogue after he saw the images, so he could match up or riff off the expressions that I gave him. So that was interesting, to not know.”
Maybe it’s just me, but I always enjoy these little glimpses into the process of creating comics by various writers and artists.
