Comic Writer Christopher Priest on Luke Cage, Dwayne McDuffie, and One of Batman’s Biggest Dick Moves

The man who’s currently writing DC’s excellent Deathstroke series has had one of the most eventful careers in comics. At New York Comic-Con last week, he talked about helping Luke Cage stop being a laughingstock and his first meeting with the legendary comic writer who helped found Milestone Media. (Also, Batman being a jerk.)

Christopher Priest was gone from comics for more than a decade. Now he’s back, returning DC Comics’ most skilled assassin to his supervillain roots. I had a chance to speak to Priest last week and the talk that follows covers a lot of ground, including his hopes for revisiting an beloved Teen Titans storyline, a story from the early days of Milestone, and a remembrance of a great 1989 annual where Batman pulls off a brutal bit of manipulation on Two-Face. (That story gets broken down in detail right here.)
