It's hard to know how things might have played differently. First thought would be that I'd have continued on FANTASTIC FOUR, but given conditions at Marvel at the time, that seems unlikely.

Maybe I might have asked Dick for something else. DOOM PATROL? GREEN LANTERN? JUSTICE SOCIETY?

We'll never know!

Would've loved to have read a John Byrne Green Lantern run! You really excel at telling great science fiction stories and GL is a great combination of superheroes and science fiction. Absolutely loved Ganthet's Tale that you did with Larry Niven.

You'll know I found my time machine if you suddenly remember that you did take FF through #300 and then bounced over to DC to do Captain Marvel and The Phantom Stranger (separate titles).

In any case, I appreciate you rebooting Superman. I had little interest in DC until then. You really did open up a whole new universe for me!

This interview being "published" produces a lot of curious links on Google. Once again, we see items of various ages, telling readers where I went wrong.

I have no interest in reading them. For one thing, my time machine is still in the shop. And right there we come to the biggest reason I have no interest: THERE'S NOTHING I CAN DO ABOUT IT.

Really, even if I happened to AGREE with my harshest critics, even if their criticism is 100% right and valid, it's meaningless. Nothing can change.

BTW, I've asked Mike to find out if it's possible to add appropriate credits to the artwork used that isn't mine.

Enjoyed the heck out this! Thanks, Chief!


And, yeah, I know youíve often said that you wish you hadnít taken the job, but, as someone whose first actual comic book may very possibly have been MAN OF STEEL # 1, I am eternally grateful that you did!

Great interview, JB!  After knowing you for nearly two decades, there's not a lot of "new" here but all the same it's fairly comprehensive with regard to Superman and doesn't feel edited to attain a certain perspective.  The interviewer knew his subject and you, understanding that, played along.  It was entertaining and informative.

Job well done!

So weird that a Youtube video is region restricted. I thought the last time it happened it was because it was on Syfy's website and was fixed for most folks by posting the Youtube link. What the heck?
