NRAMA: [Y]ou had Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely beating down your door to do an Inferior Five project – given their fanbase and talent they bring to the table – how does that weight against putting them on something like the Inferior Five?
DD: It depends on what their interests are and how long we think we can support a series. Something like an Inferior Five is an interesting concept, but there doesn’t seem to be a pressing need for it. A lot of times, when the talent comes to us with a particular character, we can talk it through to see if that character warrants its own series, and whether or not we have enough story to support that series. If we come to the conclusion that there is enough to go on, then we’ll push it ahead.

This year J. Bone and myself pitched an all-ages Wonder Woman book aimed at young female readers. In other words, I wanted to give them at least 12 issues of a Wonder Woman book that any parent could give their child. They [DC Comics] couldn’t have been less interested.
