CBR TV @ CCI 2011: Paul Cornell on “Action Comics,” “Stormwatch” & “Demon Knights”

“Demon Knights” and “Stormwatch” writer Paul Cornell discusses his 2011 Eagle Award as favorite Newcomer Writer — despite having worked in comics for around twenty years — before moving on to Cornell’s role as the final writer on the original “Action Comics” run and his thoughts on the controversy over Superman’s “denouncing” of America in early 2011.

Cornell also describes the world readers will be transported to in “Demon Knights,” citing George RR Martin’s “A Game of Ice and Fire” as what fans can expect and the freedom of creating all new characters based in the new DC Universe’s past.

“Stormwatch’s” new DCU ties are also discussed, from how the one-time Wildstorm team is retrofitted into the DC Universe, how J’onn J’onzz’s membership works, the twists he’s adding to the relationship between Apollo and Midnighter and the title’s breakneck pace.

    So glad I started reading Action Comics when he started on it and am looking forward to both these books. As far as seeing a gay romance start and develop goes you of course have PAD’s X-factor. Given Paul’s enthusiasm and the characters involved, I’m sure it Stormwatchu00a0 will go further.

    No questions about Hawksmoor or Jenny Sparks or The Engineer or The Doctor?nIf they’re not in the book, will they show up ever again?

    I can’t wait to read Cornell’s Stormwatch. Glad he’s going the Authority route with it his premise reminds me of Milestone’s Shadow Cabinet. And them facing the Moon is something I can’t wait to see illustrated by Sepulveda. I’ve been wanting to check out The Authority for a while now and this is a perfectu00a0opportunityu00a0to do so. And Cornell writing J’onn J’onnz makes my day.u00a0
