“Gregg Hurwitz coming on to BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT is a total game changer for this book. His stories are vicious, cruel and dark, but they are also incredibly humane and insightful and well written. I don't think that I need to tell Gregg Hurwitz fans how great a writer he is, but for those comic book readers who have not had the chance to experience his work, it's going to be a big surprise and a hell of a ride.
“Oh, man, I am so excited for this book to come out! Grant and I have put our all into making this the best reading experience possible. We're trying to do away with the widescreen movie-wannabe comics of the last ten or fifteen years and make the comicbookiest comics we're capable of. Breaking borders, impossible perspectives, intricate panel interplay, sound effects, speed lines, splash pages, and some stuff that I'm not quite sure how to put into words. Words are Grant's department, anyway!

“Working with Jeff Lemire was such a pleasure. He's able to give his characters real human qualities. Both he and Travel Foreman created such an amazingly crazy world in the regular series that I was able to draw a great amount of inspiration from.”
"In lots of ways I'm thinking of this as a completely different project to my previous work on ANIMAL MAN. A book takes on the personality of its author and that partnership colours your approach to the art. Jeff's wild creatures and dark fantasy, coupled with the move to the DC Universe have made this ANIMAL MAN a faster, pacier book, but still with the family at the heart of it-which is great.
It’s going to be a rainy week here in New York City. But here at the DC Entertainment offices in midtown Manhattan, it’s easy to forget about the gray skies and dark clouds when we’re surrounded by so much bright artwork and comic book décor.
“If there's one thing my adult pro self wanted out of DC COMICS-THE NEW 52, it was a return to the days of Infinite Earths. And it starts here. Jim designed the coolest costumes and it was a hoot of a sandbox to play in for a few hours. They are still Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, though, but that was always the fun, wasn't it? The same but different. My eight-year son got a real kick out of me drawing this, just like my eight-year old self would have!”
