Comicon.com’s PULSE News has interviewed writer Alan Burnett about his brief stint writing DC Comics’ Justice League of America, comparing the experience to his job writing for animated shows like Static Shock and The Batman. Burnett notes how his animation writing got him the job writing the comic, how he and regular series writer Dwayne McDuffie collaborated, and how writing a comic is different from writing a TV show. He also confirms that McDuffie will return as the main writer for the comic after issue #19.
At the tail-end of the interview, Burnett also states that the February 2 episode of The Batman will be the last non-team-up episode, and briefly discusses who will be appearing in the next few episodes. He also expresses doubt that The Batman will lead up to a new Justice League animated series.
Burnett’s first co-written issue, Justice League of America #17, is on comic book stands now. The Batman airs on the Kids WB programming block on the CW network on Saturday mornings.
