Darwyn Cooke on Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre
Darwyn Cooke talked to The Oklahoman about his work on “Before Watchmen,” including “Minutemen” and “Silk Spectre.” “Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre” No. 1 is on sale today. Look for more from Cooke in a future Weekend Look edition and here on Nerdage. Here are a few excerpts from the interview, in which Cooke talks about working with his longtime friend Amanda Conner on “Silk Spectre.”
Nerdage: How has it been working with Amanda Conner on “Silk Spectre”?
Darwyn Cooke: We’re good friends, and have been for a long time now. Amanda and I have always kind of quietly watched one another do our thing, and think, yeah, you see? He gets it. She gets it. We kind of approach things in the same obsessive way. And this just was an ideal opportunity. They had asked me to look at Silk Spectre as a character. And while I could look at her as a character, I couldn’t in full confidence say I’m the guy to write a 16-year-old girl. And once I had an idea, which I really was in love with, I kind of made it a condition that we bring Amanda in.
