    Default Tom Taylor Gets Personal With "National Comics: Rose And Thorn"

    Writer Tom Taylor spoke with CBR News about his upcoming "National Comics: Rose and Thorn" one-shot from DC Comics, explaining what makes his rendition different from the split-personality duos who have come before.

    I'm not familiar with the characters, but it sounds interesting. And this made me grin:

    Should readers prepare to see The 100 or Flash appear in your story, or is this entirely focused on the titular character?

    This is all Rose all the time. Having said that, if you're a Flash fan, Flash could be in every panel but moving too fast for you to see. Feel free to read it as if that's happening.
    And hey, another guy who wants to write Superman.

    Wish they got a better artist. He's not bad but after Eternity's and Looker's art, this one seems lacking.

    What I want to know is why isn't the velociraptor wearing Abe Lincoln's hat?
    Anyone who thinks DC is bringing back the Silver Age doesn't know what the Silver Age is.

    There is no such word as "persay," it's per se, two words, from the Latin.

    I think I love you now... I want to see this one day.
    Looking for artists, know I won't find any. That blows.

    Is this an Unwritten cross-over?

    Always liked Rose & Thorn (especially the Gail Simone book, was always sorry nothing more got done with that), and I loved Boba Fett Is Dead, so I'm eager to give this a try.

    Same thing I was thinking. Tom Taylor is writing this? A fictional character writing fictional characters? This is totally blowing my mind! LoL
    Thus do I write the first chapter of my new scripture. And the first verse is "Let it all burn."

    Okay, I was worried that this would be a rebooted version of the Rose and Thorn that married Alan Scott. Glad to know it's a different character.

    Is there any chance that after the 4 issues DC would set an Internet poll for readers to pick one of the 4 issues for an ongoing series? I think top cow's season 1 was similar.

    My only experience with Rose and Thorn (and the 100) was in the early issues of Booster Gold's original series.

    I doubt those stories will be referenced, especially since they no longer happened in the nu52 continuity or lack thereof. The Rose / Thorn duality was a neat concept and the new art looks nice. Good luck with the stories!
    BOOSTER GOLD (Michael Jon Carter), HAWKEYE (Clint Barton), IRON FIST (Daniel Rand), MOON KNIGHT (Marc Spector aka Steven Grant aka Jake Lockley), NIGHTCRAWLER (Kurt Wagner),
