Smallville: Interview with Bryan Q. Miller
The Comic Book Road Show podcast talked to Bryan Q. Miller about Smallville and Batgirl! It's a long, fascinating interview that explores Bryan's history with the show (he started as an intern in S5!), all the steps an episode goes through between idea and broadcast, what's coming up for Steph in the Batgirl comic books, and lots more, including this quote about Tom Welling:

Tom's great at comedy. He's a really good straight man, he's great when he's funny, so it's good whenever we can get him into that place in an episode, too.

It's nice to hear a writer single out Tom's gift for comedy, and no one gives him better comic material than BQM, who wrote Committed, Hex, Echo, and Warrior. Download the podcast at Comic Book Road Show HERE, or from iTunes HERE. I don't remember anything too spoilery (most of the discussion was about episodes that have already aired), but I'm not positive, so spoilerphobes should proceed with caution.

It's such a cool interview, because he explores both Smallville and Batgirl at length. I love how deeply he understands who his Steph is and what makes her tick. He has created this new interpretation of her with a lot of thought and care. And I thought the insights he shared about writing for comic books vs. TV were fascinating.

I do, too! I can't wait for #15 tomorrow!

I just might have an action figure of Steph's Batgirl. At my house she hangs with my Clark action figure and BQM's two worlds collide. :)

I want a funny episode from BQM, but I think his next one is pretty serious. The Batgirl comics have a lot of humor, mixed in with the action and drama. It's one of my favorite things about them.

Thanks so much for sharing that nice quote from BQM! I'm crossing my fingers and toes we see Tom in a romantic comedy in his future!

Thank you so much for the link. I'm really looking forward to listening to it. I freaking love his Batgirl. You know it took me forever to put two and two together and realize the dude writing Batgirl has worked on Smallville for x amount of years. LOL.
