Newsarama.com sat down for a chat with the author to discuss "The Swan King". Here's an excerpt from the interview...
Greene: The specific art is the cover to Action Comics #305, which features Clark Kent switching to Superman while three criminals are watching through a trick mirror. One of them has sold the secret to Superman's identity for a million bucks while another plots to bump off Clark Kent at the Planet with some Gold Kryptonite. Another crazy 60's Superman story. And I have no idea who owns the art. [Laughs] I've looked online but could not figure it out. So I just ran with it.
So what can you tell us about the lead in this, William Farrar? Is he a detective himself?
Greene: No, William Farrar is just a normal guy. Well, a normal guy who loves comics and sci-fi and collectibles and sells original comic art. So, not so normal, I guess. He is good at finding pieces of art that people want but that's pretty much the extent of his detective skills. He just walks into a situation that becomes a lot more than he expected.
And why are people in pursuit of this Curt Swan piece willing to murder to get it?
Greene: Well... that's the mystery, isn't it? I will say that it is completely comics related. That much I will say.

Brooks: Oh, Jimmy gets his hands filthy; Jimmy needs latex gloves. No, he's kind of - for lack of a better phrase, the mentor of what she's doing, because he's the only person amongst her circle that's actually seen this and done this kind of thing before; its not his first time. So he's there for at least moral support, or just to keep her safe, or give her some kind of perspective. But at the same time, he's also allowing this person to come into their own; allowing this person to be the best that she can be, and just really being a stable foundation for that. At the same time, juxtapose that with his own struggle; he's got his own struggle of trying to come out of Superman's shadow as Superman's best friend, and be his own man. They're finding each other at a time when they really need these sort of external examples of each other, so, it's a really cool dynamic.
MTV: Being in league with a superhero, though, usually leads to a whole lot of dude-or-damsal in distress situations. Is it the same with Jimmy and Kara, and if so, what's it like having tiny Melissa carry you around to save the day?
Brooks: There's been a couple times where I've been the dude in distress, so I'm all good with that. Women have been quote-unquote superheroes in our society for years - my mother is a superhero to me, my grandmother as well, and I think that we're just getting to a place in our society where we're actually recognizing their contribution in the way that it should be. So I'm happy to be a part of that, I'm happy to be the dude in distress.
My mom saved my ass more times than I can count; my grandma saved my ass more times than I can count. If it wasn't for the powerful women in my life, I would not be where I'm at. All men have been that dude in distress, and we're just too prideful to admit it. But women have come to our aid, whether it's a girlfriend, a wife, a mother, a sister, a best friend. I don't know a man who could say he's at where he's at without a woman. So I'm okay with that. Go ahead and carry me through the fire Melissa, go ahead girl!

We saw you in the trailer in a body bag. Are you just in the body bag or do you get to do something cool in the movie?
I run for President (laughs). Uh, no, you know, I think it's better left unsaid. I mean, when does the movie come out?
Yeah, I don't want to spoil it for anybody. Yeah, no comment.
