James Robinson on Justice League, Alex Toth, the Shade and more!

Eisner Award winner James Robinson spoke with CBR TV about his run on “Justice League of America” and its current Eclipso-centric storyline and how Alex Toth influenced the tale before getting into details about his Flashpoint miniseries “The Outsider.”

Robinson then looked simultaneously to the past and future in discussing his plans for a 12-issue Shade series, placing the spotlight once again on the one-time villain who came to prominence during the writer’s run on “Starman” in the ’90s. The writer also recalled the infamous “Starman” letter column, his love for obscure comics characters and much more.

    AH! So thats where that Shade rumor came from. Hope it still happens. Unlike Robinson on Savage Hawkman. I also love the Insider. I hope we see him after Flashpoint.

    It’s hilarious how Robinson has to duck around the DC 52 announcement in this interview. It’ll be interesting to see if Shade comes out of this unscathed, given that the times past story in #4 sounds like it features Golden Age heroes who might (?) be written in the new continuity.

    It makes you wonder what his reaction was about leaving JLA. Or if he really did originally have plans for storylines beyond this Eclipso arc.

    What an arsehole.

    Sadly that his approach to writing, as it seems to be how he remembers any givenu00a0character rather than research them, shines through immensely in JLA. Guess that explains why everyone (ceot Bill and Mik) seems to have new personalities.
