September 18, 2008 - Dark Knight / Denny O'Neil talks about Dark Knight
Scooped on Friday, December 26, 2008
In the 1970s, the comic book writer/artist team of Denny O’Neil and Neal Adams created the Dark Knight archetype that Christopher Nolan, Jonathan Nolan and David Goyer translated to the screen. O’Neil actually created Ra’s Al Ghul for the comics back in 1971, then wrote the death of that character when he adapted Batman Begins for its novelization (he novelized The Dark Knight, too). Now O’Neil is writing his first Batman comic in 28 years, and Comic Book Resources took the opportunity to ask him what he thought of the two modern Bat films.
"Both [films] were terrific and I’m glad to be associated with them," the writer said. "Nolan is creating his own version of the mythos and it’s as valid as any that preceded it by any criteria, and more valid in terms of his own art form."
