This was a recent commission piece. I never really thought about these characters before, I liked when they turned up in Batman or Batman Inc but found their own book a wee bit jolly hockey sticks for my taste. In't Britain marvellous? No, it's bloody horrible here, we're going nowhere, the weather's terrible, and the Royal Family has us by the balls for at least another hundred years. We're a nation of perverts and malcontents, and I would very much like to see a comic book that represents that. Stick your London buses up your arse.
What I was talking about?
Oh yes, Knight and Squire. Doing a sort of blood-soaked, black-as-night, Batman meets the Wicker Man type book really appeals to me. Remember how steeped in paganism and magic Alan Moore's Captain Britain was? That's kind of what Knight and Squire says to me. Crows, and palace guards and evil Royals and... that's a licence to print money as far as I'm concerned.
*activates wish machine* DC, please bring this book back and let me write and draw it.
