[quote]There’s a number of different things, really. You may remember that I’m a novelist as well as doing comics. I write a lot of books for Warhammer and Doctor Who, but one of my original novels was a book called “Triumph” which was a take on a world where the Elizabethan Age never ended in England and was still being carried on today. Then through the industrial age, a rediscovery of magic had given the British Empire some power as the succession of royalty continued on past Queen Elizabeth. So that idea of exploring history and playing with it has always appealed to me.

What Ian and I are doing here is attempting to tell stories that you don’t normally do in the remit of mainstream superheroes. I love writing for DC and Marvel, but to play with historical themes and big ideas and mash them up a bit is fantastic. When you pitch a project like this to Dark Horse – who said “yes” immediately – it’s a matter of thinking not about what works for a character like Batman or whatever. It’s about concept – finding a place where the world is created to give you something new.[/quote]
