Welcome Dan DiDio:
We’re joined on the Starline by former DC Comics writer, publisher and editor. His latest project released is ‘Hide or Seek: The Superpower Protection Program”. We welcome author Dan DiDio.
Dan, let’s go Beyond the Mic. Your character Nick Pappas’ dad was killed on national television. Nick never knew his dad was a superhero and sent away to the All-American town of Crucible. But nothing is what it seems. Why was writing this so fun for you?
You seem to have incredible artists & writers at your beck and call. As this story was written, why were Anthony and Chris the best choice to help you with this project?
You’ve teamed up with Frank Miller for “Frank Miller Presents” and are currently writing Ancient Enemies. How has writing this series tested you?
How does building a world easier when there aren’t any preexisting parameters?
