Newsarama posted a portion of an interview with Kevin Smith recently, ahead of the release of the full piece later this week. In the portion that’s been released, Smith gave a non-update on his long gestating series Batman: Bellicosity, with artist Walter Flanagan.
“This red folder goes with me everywhere. It’s got three issues of art with notes for me and Walter to go back into and finish. I’ve been carrying this folder for two years. It’s not Walter’s fault. He’s free as hell. It’s just a matter of me getting down to it. I feel incredibly bad because I did an entire different miniseries in the interim. Right after my heart attack, Mark Millar was like “Hey, do you want to do Hit-Girl?” and I was like, “Oh, I’ll write Hit-Girl.”
“Walter’s got a lot of the art done. The notes I’ve got on Batman: Bellicosity are just like, ‘Ooh, we need to add this because I want to move this over to here’ and stuff I will definitely get around to it.”
Bellicosity is the sequel to Smith and Flanagan’s Batman: Widening Gyre, which ended in 2010. The six issue series took ten months to release.
