Going For The Glory With CBR
Here’s an excerpt:
Campbell’s art and your take on the character seem to take her pretty far away from Glory’s bad girl roots — was that on purpose?
Yes, very much so. I don’t like repeating the past. Like I said before, the potential for comics is without limit. Why keep repeating the same types of stories? The Glory conceived in the ’90s wouldn’t be as relevant in the present, just like the Superman of 1938. Things get reinvented for the time.
Plus, we saw a great opportunity to bring in the kinds of characters we wanted to see in comics in general. I’m pretty disturbed by the term “strong women” as a compliment to characters — it suggests most women are weak. It’s bullshit. The women in my life are all “strong.” I have a mother, a stepmother, a couple of grandmothers and a bunch of aunts who kick a lot of ass. My maternal grandmother alone is in her late 80s and could probably outrun most people I know.
There’s a whole lot more, but it’s exclusive to CBR!
