Denny O’Neil Interviews

DETECTIVE-COMICS-457-001

Detective Comics #457.

Denny O’Neil has always been one of my favorite contemporary writers.  It was his Batman (along with Neal Adam’s) that I first encountered in the early 1970s with my first comic book in Hays, Kansas.

Lately, this grand gentleman has been giving lots of interviews and retrospectives on his life as a writer.  One of my favorite interviews is to be found here: https://13thdimension.com/the-denny-oneil-interviews-there-is-no-hope-in-crime-alley/

O’Neil reveals how much Dorthy Day and the Catholic Worker movement influenced him and his vision of Gotham and of Bruce Wayne.

And, O’Neil remembers a wonderful quote from Dorothy Day: “Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s and unto God the things that are God’s … and, by the way, Caesar doesn’t deserve anything.”
