For five years, Robert Taylor has been writing some of the most in-depth interviews with comic creators in the industry and is featured in the weekly REFLECTIONS column published every Sunday here on Comic Book Resources.
Last week saw the first half a two-part interview with comic legend Peter David published, spotlighting his early work in the industry and his strong opinions on comic crossovers. This Sunday, in part two, find out more about, among many other things, "Fallen Angel." David teased on his Web site about something major happening in his IDW series concerning Linda Danvers, and this weekend we'll give you the complete lowdown.
The following week, Robert talks in depth with Mark Verheiden, producer on "Battlestar: Galactica" for SciFi and writer of "Superman/Batman" for DC Comics. "Battlestar: Galactica" begins the second half of its third season this Sunday. Ratings for the first half of the third season were down compared to previous seasons and rumors swirled this week that SciFi had not yet made a decision about renewing the show. In speaking with Robert, Verheiden addressed the situation when asked about the show's future.
Mark Verheiden: We just finished working out this story for this "Battlestar" movie we've been talking about. "Battlestar" hasn't been picked up yet, and none of us are sure what is going on.
Robert Taylor: Oh dear, you aren't going to leave us with a big cliffhanger like the Cylons taking over a planet again, are you?
Mark Verheiden: Well, if it were to end now, there are going to be a lot of unhappy fans.
Clearly "Battlestar: Galactica's" future is very uncertain at this point.
Look for more with Verheiden on both his work for DC Comics and what's in store for "Battlestar: Galactica" next Sunday. In the coming weeks, Robert will chat with such industry greats as Joe Kelly, Charlie Huston, Greg Rucka, Aaron Lopresti and J. Michael Straczynski, all leading up to "Reflections'" star-studded landmark 200th column.
