Once this fixed the spelling and clean it up, they will post it and I'll post the link here.

It was a rather nice chat, in it you will learn all kinds of cool stuff like:

What was the one Superman character he really always liked and wished he could do story with but never got the chance.

His favorite Superman stories that he wrote Wink

His worst storyline ever that he wrote Wink

What his favorite version of Lex Luthor is.

If he would be willing to write an All-Star Superman run.

Possible new Graphic Novel, not that it will happen but he would like to see happen.

His favorite artist to work with.

His take on Captain Marvel.

His favorite Superman Character.

What he wishes he could do with Superwoman.

Who really created Lex Corp Wink

and much, much more. Smiley

There was a lot of joking around that wasn't included, also the answer about the Graphic Novel was omitted, I guess for legal reasons.


Maybe someday that epic Super-Monkey story will get made and Art Adams will draw it.... hey it could happen! or not Wink

So what was the answer about the graphic novel?

It's a shame that Elliot S! Maggin, probably the best living Superman writer, was shut out of Lois and Clark and shut out of Superman Adventures and now he has no involvement with Smallville or with the Krypto cartoon!  Most of those shows would not exist if it hadn't been for his work.  Krypto in particular had been completely written-off by the suits until Starwinds Howl proved to them just how loved and popular the mutt is, and the power of his story.

I asked him if he would ever do comics again, (on his own) and he replied that he wouldn't mind making one of his novels that he had written into a graphic novel, he named the novel, but I don't think it was ever release to begin with. The odds of that Graphic Novel ever happening is slim and none, so I guess there is no need to get anyone hopes up.

You should have asked him to write an Epic Story of Beppo the Super-Monkey novella for you.
