Greg to speak at Toledo-Lucas County Library Batman birthday bash

Batman at 70

If you find yourself in Ohio on Monday, Nov. 9, you should drop by the Toledo-Lucas County Library where they’re celebrating 70 years of a certain caped crusader. Greg will be connecting and interacting via video chat with participants at the event. Here are the full details from the Toledo-Lucas County Library website:

The Toledo-Lucas County Public Library is proud to announce its celebration of 70 years of the ‘Dark Knight’ in comics with Batman At 70, a program and exhibition scheduled from 6:30-8 p.m. on Monday, November 9 in the McMaster Center at Main Library, 325 Michigan St.

Local comic book historian Jim Beard returns to Main Library to host a special Batman retrospective featuring a live, interactive video chat with Greg Rucka, comic book writer and best-selling author.

A companion Batman At 70 exhibition will feature vintage comics and collectables, a life-sized recreation of the legendary ‘Bat Cave’, and a history of amazing bat-gadgets over the decades.

Batman made his first appearance in June 1939 and quickly became what is arguably the most popular comic book character ever. Join Your Library as we look back at his creation by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger, all the way up to his ‘death’ in 2009!

Interpreters for the hearing impaired are available for this program by calling 419.259.5266 one week in advance of the program.

Greg talks Batwoman & The Question with Newsarama

Nrama: The fourth and final part of the inaugural Batwoman storyarc landed late last month, how do you think fans have taken to the character of Batwoman now that she’s had her first feature-length adventure on her own?

Rucka: The people that I talk to have been really positive. And there’s still a lot of questions people are asking about her and her corner of the world. I do admit there was a little impatience in the fact that her origin wasn’t revealed in the first issue – or first storyarc – but that wasn’t the intention.

If I really wanted to dig into the fans’ response, I could go read the online postings (which are a small percentange of the actual fanbase), or spend the time writing actual comics.

But speaking of these first issue, Jim and I have been able to spend a lot of time to tell the stories we want to tell with Kate. We’re slowly unraveling who Kate is, what she’s doing and why. That’s a luxury you don’t often get in the world of comics. The schedule for producing comics is very, very pressing – but we were fortunate to get a relatively long lead-time to work on this, which served us both well.
