Michael Moreci is the creator of numerous original comics series including Roche Limit (Image Comics) and Burning Fields (BOOM! Studios). The first issue of his most recent release Wasted Space (Vault Comics) sold out fast and is due for a third printing. Issue #2 looks set to follow it’s predecessor’s example. His debut novel, Black Star Renegades, was released earlier this year to great reviews. The sequel is due in 2019.
Recently Michael has contributed to Wonder Woman annual #1, and he wrote the terrific Nightwing #43 for DC Comics. Next week will see the release of his first Batman story in Detective Comics #982, which will feature the return of Deacon Blackfire. This Legendary villain first appeared in the classic “Batman: The Cult” series, by Jim Starlin and Bernie Wrightson.
As regular Detective Comics reviewer for Dark Knight News, and as a fan of both Black Star Renegades and Wasted Space, I’ve been chatting with Michael online for a couple of months. After a great discussion with him, and with the artist of Detective #982, Sebastián Fiumara, I was fortunate enough to be granted the following interview.
