Interview: Christina Weir & Nunzio DeFilippis

I recently had the honor of interviewing lawfully wedded writing duo Christina Weir and Nunzio DeFilippis, who share a lovely website about their life and work right here.


They co-wrote the recent and massively fun “A New Dawn” storyline in Batman Confidential, which took the basic premise of the King Tut character from the classic Adam West series and updated him into an interesting and dangerous adversary for our favorite Caped Crusader.

My reviews of the individual issues are here, here, and here on Batman on Film, the world’s best source for Batman news thanks to the dedication and integrity of its creator and editor, Bill “Jett” Ramey, who also happens to be the hardest working Batman fan on the planet.

And given that DC Comics has lost its mind when it comes to Batman comics these days, it was refreshing to read such a fun and exciting story about Batman being Batman. So I contacted Christina and Nunzio, who sweetly agreed to do an interview despite being buried under deadlines, deadlines, deadlines (and trying to find time to celebrate Nunzio’s birthday).

You can read the interview right here.

I’m really proud of how this turned out, but in all honesty I didn’t really have to do anything. Thanks to the thoughtful, generous answers I got from Christina and Nunzio, the interview wrote itself.

So please check out the interview, and please check out what Christina and Nunzio are up to. It’s rare to find writers who truly love characters as much as these two do, and it comes through in every word they write.

And again, my deepest appreciation goes to Christian and Nunzio for taking the time to do this!
