CBR TV: Adam Glass On “Suicide Squad,” “Supernatural,” Harley Quinn & Angry Fans

Adam Glass, the writer of DC Comics’ “Suicide Squad” and one of the staff writers on the CW’s “Supernatural, recently spent an afternoon at the CBR TV studios. Glass and Jonah Weiland spoke at length about the writer’s career, his lifelong love of the Suicide Squad and how he balances writing for two different mediums.

Glass also dive right into the various controversies that have followed him during his SS stint, from fans threatening him personal harm over his depiction of Harley Quinn, to the controversy over Amanda Waller’s New 52 weight loss and the particularly strong fan reaction to Quinn kissing her Squad-mate Deadshot, described by Glass as the writing gig that has garnered him the most vitriolic fan reaction in any medium.

Glass described working with fellow comic book writers Ben Edlund and Brett Matthews and Andrew Daab on “Supernatural,” the likelihood of he and “Tick” creator Edlund ever working on a comic together and his upcoming creator-owned comic “Brick,” a story about a 12 year old boy who has control of his very own Frankenstein monster.

    My interest/respect level for Adam Glass just went up a few notches.  Always knew he was cool, never knew he was THIS cool (writes comics outside of TV prominently for “da love” and mostly respects his crazy “fans”).  Huh.  Good stuff.
