March 9, 2006: Exclusive Matt Idelson InterviewMatt Idelson is the new Superman comic book editor (taking over from Eddie Berganza).
The Superman Homepage would like to thank Matt for agreeing to do this interview, and for fitting it into his busy schedule.
- Q: How did you get the job as Superman comics editor?
A: A little over a year ago, Dan DiDio approached all the editors and asked for their thoughts in writing on the different characters and books in the DCU, and what we would do with them given the chance, and I guess Dan liked what I wrote.
Q: How important do you view continuity? Do you see it as your job to maintain a stable continuity?
A: I think continuity is hugely important. It's what validates the time and money the readers have invested in the characters, and it's the history that defines the characters, too. To ignore it is just wrong. At the same time, you have to be flexible enough to allow a character to grow, even if it means altering some past bit of continuity. I think the best balance is to have a story-driven reason for the continuity, one that you can tell in a later tale if you don't have the space to explain it immediately. I've made my continuity-related mistakes over the years, lord knows, and it's something that bothers me whenever I finally realize it.
