The newly posted Winter 2010 issue of Comic-Con Magazine — “The Writers Issue” — features an interesting and entertaining conversation between Brian Michael Bendis and Matt Fraction in which they discuss the creative process, San Diego and how they’re always writing:
Matt: A perfect example of this: I was in the shower and came up in my head with the conversation that Pepper and Tony have where we reveal his memory loss is so profound he doesn’t remember who Happy Hogan is. And the idea of Tony asking Pepper, “Who’s Happy?” just really hit me. I was like, oh that’s the scene. And I was in the shower and I was afraid I was going to forget it so I wrote it on the window—we had a shower at the time with a window looking out into the backyard which was super awesome for the neighbors. But it was fogged up so I wrote on the fog on the glass, “Who’s Happy?” just so I didn’t forget. And then I wrote it down, put it in my notebook and it was locked into place. So the next time my wife took a shower and it steamed up she saw written on the window like a suicide note, “Who’s happy?” She asked me what is that? And I had to explain, I’m perfectly happy. I’m delighted with my life.
The issue also includes an extended Q&A with Geoff Johns in which he talks about his influences, Brightest Day, The Flash: Secret Origin and more. (On a related note, Johns wraps up his two-part interview at The Source today.)
