Somewhere between a mini and an ongoing I imagine! Twelve issues, perhaps?

12 is a Maxi-Series.

This is new terminology!

New interview with Azz:

http://comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=22498

Before we discuss the series, let’s talk about the one-shot. Is that story set in current DCU continuity?

No. No, no, no. We have our own continuity. That’s what we’re creating here. It’s something brand new. We’re taking old characters and creating something new with them.

So is it set in present day?

It’s timeless. There are airships and cell phones. Computers and Tommy guns. Trains are a viable form of transportation. For lack of a better touchstone, think “Batman: The Animated Series.” Was that in the 1940s or was that now?

Was a world without superpowers one of your stipulations for taking on this project?

Dan came to me because he wanted that kind of world. The pinnacle of humanity in this world is Doc Savage. He’s top of the food chain.

Will readers need prior knowledge of Doc Savage heading into the one-shot or the series?

What. Do you think I want 10 guys reading this?

It’s also been announced that Doc Savage will be joined by other classic characters like The Spirit, the Blackhawks, Rima the Jungle Girl in the series that follows. And those will be reinterpretations, as well?

I don’t mind sharing who the characters are going to be because I guarantee, they are not going to be the way you are expecting them to be. So yeah, the Blackhawks are in it but you’re going to look at these Blackhawks and you’re going to be like, “This is not the way that they’ve been depicted before.”

When will we see this series?

Sometime next year.

Is it an ongoing series?

It’s a six-issue miniseries. But oversized.

And it was announced at Chicago Comic-Con that The Spirit will star in a new solo series coming out of this. Will there be more spin-off titles?

Yeah. There are going to be a number of series spinning out of this.

And will you be involved in all of those?

To some extent, yes.


This sounds fucking brilliant.
