International Exchange: JLI #9

The latest of Russ Burlingame's "International Exchange" interviews with Dan Jurgens is up at ComicBook.com. I may have my problems with the decompression in Jurgens' recent JLI stories, but I have to say that I really admire his willingness to discuss each issue afterwards. That's above and beyond the call of duty for a professional with his portfolio.

IX: It's interesting–the dialog between Batman and Batwing suggests that even the superhero community isn’t really clear on Booster's "deal." Did you want to roll back the number of people in the hero community who knew his "secret?"

Dan Jurgens: No. It's just that we tend to be a skeptical society now.

If an individual suddenly shows up and claims to be from the future, some people are bound to be skeptical. On top of that, I think Batman, more than any other hero, would be the type to check into it on his own and make sure.

Now, if you wrap that into the idea of a hero who advertises projects and tends to hype himself, well, you can see why Batwing would have assumed it was an act.

I'm skeptical about the implication that we were not a skeptical society "then." I don't think there has been a point in history where the general population would believe a man's own claims about being from the future. Even in 1955, we'd want a doctor to take a look for head trauma in that "future boy."

What I'm still more skeptical about is the possibility that Batwing isn't a jerk.

New Releases: Justice League International #8

Advance solicitations indicate that this issue will introduce a "surprise new team member!" Since Batwing appears on the cover of the issue which also blatantly states that he will be joining (preview available on Maxim.com), it would only be a surprise if he's not the new member. The real surprise might be in who is leaving the team to make room for him; although since the team was officially disbanded last issue, it's more a question of who wouldn't rejoin than who would leave, isn't it?

Buy this issue and make Skeets happy. (Our little buddy has to show up sooner or later!)
