We'll kind <Speech_Male> of play in <Speech_Male> with the idea here and <Speech_Male> we'll kind of work out some <Speech_Male> of the bugs, but I like <Speech_Male> it.

Denmark Plans Massive Wind-Energy Hub on an Artificial Island

"The country of denmark has long produced oil and gas in the sea but denmark has to phase that out by twenty fifty instead. We racing ambitions when it comes to offshore wind. Dan jurgens in his denmark's minister of climate energy and utilities. He says that over the next decade his country plans to build a massive wind energy hub on an artificial island in the north sea it will collect energy from hundreds of offshore wind turbines and deliver it to european customers in. Its first phase. The hub is expected to produce enough electricity to power three million households and ultimately enough for ten million. So it's a huge project. It's probably the biggest infrastructure project in the history of my country. Jorgensen says abundant clean energy can help advance other green technologies. Denmark's long-term goal is to use wind power to create liquid fuel for use planes and ships. That technology exists today. But it's very expensive and it's not possible to do it into scale would be necessary so that's one of the reasons why we're doing is so long term. The project could create winds of change for green transportation to

"Coming up this hour, President Biden delivered a message of national unity in his inaugural address this week. We'll get analysis of his words from an expert on presidential speeches and the president signs executive orders on his first day to affect US energy policy. I talk about it with leading energy expert Dan Jurgen plus the Biden administration's policy on China. How different will it be? I ask Elizabeth economy from Stanford and antitrust enforcement gets a new regime under a new president. I talked to the outgoing and a trust chief, Macon del Rahim, for his take on what he accomplished and what is left to be done. But first Joe Biden was sworn in this week as the 46th, president of the United States. In his inaugural address, He delivered a message of unity and can working together to meet the challenges we face as a nation and overcome the challenges in front of us requires the most elusive of all things in a democracy. Unity requires us to come together in common love that defines us as Americans for reaction to the president's address and how it compares to past speeches. Bloomberg contributors. Jeannie Shawn's A. No and Rick Davis draw. In May and talking to Barbara Perry, director of presidential studies at the University of Virginia's Miller Center. I thought that was artfully done, I would say that it won't then. Threads from Lincoln and FDR and John Kennedy. I'm not sure it will rival their inaugural addresses. They're usually considered the top in among the top five in terms of the rhetoric that's involved, But what really struck me was the spirituality of it that you have. First of all the The now president, starting his day with a Catholic Mass is only the second Catholic president on then you have his his priest who talked about and quoted Pope Francis about how we must dream together because if we're isolated, we tend to see Mirages. And then I thought that the spirituality theme was picked up by the print now president with his reference to his own soul, where he said, I pledge my whole soul. To meet the challenges that we face and that tied so well into his announcement of his candidacy, in which he said after Charlottesville he knew he had to run in order to restore America's soul. It's such a great point, and even over and above that President Biden Quoted ST Augusta and saying I was a scene from his church. And actually head injury bother heads in a silent prayer for the country. I don't remember the last time Ah, President did that. It may have happened other than a prayer breakfast, but I don't remember it. I certainly don't remember one in an inaugural address s O give us a sense over all of these inaugural addresses. Barbara from your perspective, What do they have meant to accomplish or what can be accomplished? How much of this substance How much of this style? Oh, it's always both as as all of our politics happened to be, especially in the modern media era. But I would say that they're meant to present that peaceful transition of power s. Oh, they're meant to show that they're meant to symbolize unity, bringing the country together if if they can, and they're meant to provide in times of severe challenge, as in 18 61 is an 18 64. And certainly in 1933 with FDR. They're meant to provide comfort and aid to the American people and to say here I am the new president. I'm going to work on these challenges, and together we can overcome them. Presbury. I wanted to ask you about sort of the tone. There was a lot of sort of dark Irish messaging around this with the discussions of the light and the dark. I felt I was reading an old, you know, Irish novel or something. And how much I mean, I my impression, and you would be a better judge was this was pretty personal speech that he gave that I didn't feel like Riders missed the person here, and sometimes they do. No, I think that's absolutely right. He didn't tend to become tearful would certainly in mode, and actually, this is more like the bushes. The Bushes were well known both father and son and a whole family forgetting tearful on and after four years of the president who didn't vote at all about anything, either happily or sadly, I found myself becoming ver can't clamp just even seen Joe Biden? Take the oath of office. So I think that Bill Clinton helped to make his career by dealing people's pain, telling them that he did and genuinely feeling their pain. I think Joe Biden, as he said in this inaugural address. I thought this was very poignant where he said in effect. You never know what fate is going to deal you and we all know his story and we know fate has dealt him. Really bad hands over the years. So there was this triumph I thought of his overcoming that but being able to say to the people I can empathize with you. I empathize with you families. You 400,000 families who've lost people to the virus. You know my story and I will help the whole country to overcome this professor period wanted to ask you for all the talk of unity and I thought, you know, President bite and I've got to get used to saying that Was sober about the reality that people may look, you know, suspect at that at this moment, What do you think His next steps are in terms of actually achieving that with the enormous agenda, beginning with immigration in the stimulus bill? Well, it will be hard to be sure, but he think is following in the footsteps of FDR, who said in his inaugural in addition to We have nothing to fear but fear itself but also said Americans need and want action and action. We will give them And that is what we will see from Joe Biden in this avalanche of executive orders, which has now become the norm in new presidencies, because our legislative system is it's so gridlock. I'm not convinced that hey, can find unity. It won't be easy, and I think if anybody can succeed He can, thanks to Barbara Perry from the University of Virginia's Miller Center, coming up the Biden administration's policy on China. How different will it be? I ask Elizabeth economy from Stanford. That's next. You're.

"Way have come here. To let you know that change is coming, Whether you like it or not. Can we turn this around? We have no adoption. The only option that we have is to succeed way do now and in the next two years will profoundly affect the next few 1000 years. I'm joined by Denmark's Climate Minister Dan Jurgens, an Dan. What's the significance of this decision? Well, it Zaveri big decision for us and Denmark for decades. We have made a lot of money on oil and gas, and it's been an important part of the funding off our welfare state. But we feel that we need to take this decision because climate change is here, and we need to do whatever we can to fight it. And forced to argue with a credible voice that we actually lead us in the fight against crime. A change. We needed to take this decision now. Your energy Ministry estimates this could cost Denmark $2 billion in lost revenue. How do you intend to close that revenue gap? Yeah, We need a new strategy now for how we we make a living in the future. Unfortunately, we already underway. We are in a situation now, where renewables especially wind and offshore wind is already a much bigger sexier than the oil sector, so we plan to keep expanding our renewable sector. We have planned to really ambitiously grow our offshore wind, for instance, So we hope to make up not only for the lost revenue but also to create the jobs that will be lost in the old sector. Have you received any pushback for this decision to stop issuing new leases and and oil production? It's obvious that not all companies in the oil sector and gas sector we're happy about this. Obviously, there's also been political forces, saying that as long as there's oil down there, we should put it out of the ground and make money on it. But all in all, I'm happy to say we have broad support for this, and I think one of the reasons for that is that we are doing this in a just way I we wanted to be a just transition, meaning that we really focus on creating jobs for the people that will lose their jobs. Before was on having a plan for economic development that makes this also economically viable solution. There's around 4000 people who are employed by Denmark's oil and gas sector. How do you make up for that many jobs do the current plans cover that, or are you still sort of behind in terms of figuring out how to re employ these people? It's a great question, because very often in the debate about green transformation in general in Europe. People forget that Okay? Yes, as a whole green transformation. When will give you flip more jobs than then you'll lose, but it's very important for us that we find the right jobs for the people that will lose the job here. First of all, this is not something that we're going to do from one day to the next second important point is that we allocate funding to training a worker from somebody who works in an offshore oil to offshore wind, for instance, investments that we talked about earlier that we've made It will be making an offshore wind cried the substantial You mentioned 2050. And of course, that's the date you're going to end oil production. Greenpeace Denmark is applauding this move, and they're saying this is what climate leadership looks like. But you're also allowing three more decades of oil drilling of the current leases and production that's going on to continue in the North Sea. And that's something that youth climate activists gratitude. Berg has criticized on Twitter. How do you respond to activists who say 30 years is too slow for a phase out if we were to stop oil production tomorrow, for instance. Has some actually says argued that we should. It would fundamentally change our entire society. We would no longer be able to fund our welfare state hospitals, Schools roads education system. All of these things would have to go through severe savings so that in my opinion wouldn't really make us front one. I don't think many countries would then look at us and say, Listen, that's ah, That's a very good example. Let's follow that. I think it's important to be ambitious, and I think also that there's a reason why we weigh choose to do this as as the first major oil producing country that is that we want to and hope to inspire others. But if you want to hope to inspire all this, and you also need to make rational decisions, and you also need to think about the people involved for us. A just transition is he would keep from It's important to find the balance is and I think we found that that balance in the decision that we have made. That's interesting. So you're really paying attention to also kind of social issues and political issues of how a population will respond and adapt to these changes. I think one of the biggest threats and obstacles towards the green transformation than that we need is if there's no public support if we see too many problems where we don't take into consideration the needs and opinions off the population, both when installing renewable energy But also when making the transformation from one type of energy to the next that might make people lose jobs. If we don't take that problem seriously and tackle it in a way that That make sure the weekend maintain and a society with a lot of equity and with no inequality, Then I think we risk losing the support that we need. And Jorgensen is the climate minister of Denmark. Thanks a lot for speaking with us. Thank you. We reported yesterday on a growing number of countries that are announcing they'll stop contributing greenhouse gasses to the atmosphere by mid century. Another country just added itself to that list. Brazil This week. It said it would do its part by 2060. But it told the U. N that it would not strengthen its goal for cutting carbon emissions in the near term by the end of the decade. Experts say those short term goals are necessary to lend credibility to long term promises. Christian poor EA from the nonprofit Amazon Watch calls the target unambitious. The announcement amounts to a baby step and one from a government that has proven itself willing to sacrifice the Amazon. That's people's for quick profits, including the profit of elicit actors like illegal longer legal miners and land grabbers..

"dan jurgens" Discussed on Capes and Lunatics

"It happens. Eighty it's weird because sometimes you'll have three or four different things you really anxious to do. And then all of a sudden two years later you'll you'll realize that in that that one idea hat or such and such a character. I'm glad i never got to do that. All that doesn't sound so good. You know it just it. Reation wasn't yet. get back to this idea. What his creation. And it's nervous straight line and it's also a little bit like in that there's a high tide that can come in. We're going to europe. There's no room on the beach. I don't want to chime everything just right or it's a nice sunny day and there's plenty of room on the beach. I realized that's a really silly metaphor. But there's some truth you like i think is in the grant morrison leaving The green lantern book after this next threat and the next run. I guess but Like you've been there so long now can you just go into them and say hey ivan. How jordan idea what they like seriously consider giving the green lantern book might but i doubt it i mean people have the assumption that if you just snap the fingers your that they'll open it up and you know part of it is commitments are made very often to other people and commitments to other ideas are made and that's fine at. That's kind of how it should be. So are you saying they. They might already have god. Grants replacement already picked out. Maybe if there is going to be a replacement they may. And i honestly don't know i haven't asked about green lantern in quite some time and part of it is because grant and lamb have been doing just such wonderful work on their book which has been so imaginative and so beautiful that as reader. I'd hate to see them go. Oh yeah grants always rain. Yeah the love. I loved his jail. Run back in the day. So when you're done with a character do you keep reading. There are do you stop not read it while like when you're done with superman did you read more super manner like i'm done. I think in general it's best to walk away and part of it is To be fair to the nets creative teams i. I think it's important to wet. Ashby their space and and to let them say what they wanna say. And your your people ask me about it you know. I have enough millions often with what's happening on a book to say. Yeah he's a great idea. I wish them well which is always the case. It's not like i've ever set wild the next guy you know because not good either and But typically the best thing to do is just move on to step back and rwanda. The next one was it. Is it the same or is it different. Like say booster gold shows up somewhere you like taken into early. Like i have to see what they're doing with booster gold since you created the character. Yeah that one's a little different and part of it is because you know. When i created the eric room even when they said you know when he was quitting justice league which i think was just four erase because they called me up and they said we're thinking of using brewster in the league and at the time had to point to me that we're doing sort of this humorous jamie on the justice league because their first issue wasn't even out yet so they're sent back to me. I read it. And i just said this is great. This earthquake reducible. So then we were able to talk about it and you know keeping an eye on were friends anyway. So that was great to go do it. So by and large high. I think it's nice to be asked. Because i have always made it policy to do that with the creators of other characters when i worked And i think that's just within the crater community of we're gonna be great with one another. That's the best way to do are now. I'm gonna change direction. These who are going to be lost i love. I love your marble staff I do a spider man. Podcast clean next year and get you back or your sensational issues. Are i love your captain america. Thor my my one other co host teeth. Like i don't know if you heard there's a. Us agent mini series coming out and like supposedly us agents getting replaced by the government or something and my and hurt. Yeah but One of my co host is saying it's pro side. It's going to be proud. Aside replacing him he loves prototype brings okay. I think there's more there to explore. Ever want to do it. But i have no idea what that is. I had a lot of fun doing that. Stop and i know that Gosh just dumb dare to ago someone showed me this really great looking sensational spider man. Action figure Coming out with. And he with ben reilly at which looks really like ben reilly diversed grew in a while. That's awesome. i was gonna say it. Was that your idea that die the hair blonde. Yes i was going to say. It's one simple thing and it was just like. Oh he won't be mistaken. You know they look similar but they won't get won't be in state for park. Yeah like i said i. I hope he can get you back next year for talks and ben reilly issues but art. So are you. Tc exclusive right now. Then yes i am and have been for a number of years now so kind of her once. I got done with door and moved acade- at that time we've been there since was like two thousand bucks so it's been a while. Yeah yeah right tyler. Got another question. I'm gonna wait till the. But i want to ask this one thing because this is something that kind of bothered me with it. Being your created you your character that you created. How do you feel if you can say about how john kent was treated in the current run when they took him for being the boy a age tim up and what they've done with him saints I think there's this assumption out there that why brian Michael benson. i don't get along or something like that. And the back work orders okay. So i think everybody's has had idea. That's not the case when When brian curtis came to dc He and a couple of folks from dc went out to lunch and brian was going me right a restart his plans for the character and how he was going to age john and jarallah things like that she great go quarry and an order. It is where he wanted to get with john. Being part of the legion of superheroes which i totally understand and and the idea that you would have a super boy who is a core member of the region of superheroes is very much what the legion is all about those of you who louisa superheroes in its history service totally on board with it and and i think there are always ways that they wanted to do kind of a series of batteries story that that tell the untold stories of superman and lois in young john when he was still. You know eight years old. That i think you could still have your india that you can do both But certainly i don't ever problem with this idea that you wanna take john as super boy is foundational horror member of the legion of superheroes. Because that's the history. A lot of respects of what the legion has always been i..

"Make this much more of a night store and the stories excellent. I mean especially. I mean you all had to deal with again. The animals were close together. And then you had the tie ins like Year the villain joker war. I mean was the dot kind of speed up speed things up or did did you know exactly when joker was coming. How many actually actually what happened. There is a joker war. Probably delay the return to decrease in a little bit that We had actually planned or to happen. A little bit sooner Several issues sooner and then when the joker came up a said well. Let's be part of that. Lets us that a little bit as the reasoning for what happens and that will take us right to issue seventy five and it would be nice to celebrate as part of the characters johnson issue okay. That's that's funny. That's still said the whole time. I was like oh sure will be soon now that we've got a reason to good about until like notes to be in seventy five. It's a big flagship issue. Going away the big thing that curiously argument was yes. Which was you know when when we first started talking about it. it is. You're if you have an idea for a. Is there a way to make it work right. And i think then when i started playing around with the idea of okay. What happens if the joker got the crystal. It's a quarterback had used in. We had a game with hope this Acolyte of the joker sort of idea where the dickie aids in essence to deliver up issues. I said yeah okay. We can get it in that but often you know bill is right that these things and yet steered towards these anniversary issues and the nice thing about that yes while it can be off putting in the beginning because of delays things but at the same time you get the extra mexican nice to be able to do and gave us again a little more time to explore the pass and at least said seventy five and you didn't have to wait 'til hundred exactly. I could not straight all that long. I would have been gone so i mean. I think you are clear clarify so it was your idea to tie in with the quarterback now pointing the plot. Okay that's what i thought. No when word came all the more it really was random. And that's what i struggled with because when i first came onto it. I as i said earlier. I had these questions that i assume readers that as well and i said well. I don't quite understand everything that happened. Here and the ram the randomness of it. And where was batman all the time that we gicc and he's in blue haven a. Why did he go there instead of any other city in the world since he had no memory. And if you wanted a plane star wide we see him. Writing the scarecrow notice art within everything else so the randomness Bothered me right from the word. Go and i tried to find something in all these disparate comments that i could pull together and make a story of and when we first started talking about your the villains and talent that's when i started going down the road of order bottles in trying to find a way to pull that in and have it all makes sense was it. Is it just the thing where i mean you were on the book at this point so meet. You might not know. But dick shawn the batman in batman fifty five. So is it just the thing you know tom. King set this up and it. It was just like okay. Who is working on the night wing bulk. You have to deal with this the aftermath of this. That's a little bit of happen You know it was. It was tom saying that. He did in batman. But tom is the first one to say that he had a solution for it that he could have gotten to. And i think What they decided to do is rather than just half night wing as title. Be uninvolved with it is they said okay. Let's let's make it part of night wings soar in. Let's use this in the book. Somehow and that was the hard luck turn The book had to make. And then percy was writing it at that time he was kinda thrown in the deep end there but any that's also how comics work. If it's not like is totally unusual thing. This happens in comics. I won't say all the time but it's not at all when common in part of it is you know okay if there's a germ of an idea there i'd say the risks in terms of okay night one gets dropped rather kgb's then the if that's the problem in question becomes okay. What can i. I'm in that as a writer work with in say about eric. How can i turn into a good night when but this is dick grayson. Hold a special place in your heart. Because i mean like i said i think you did a great job with this with the you know that rick story but also i mean in batman beyond kinda changed. You know came before i mean. Now dixon's the mayor of blood haven are gone right now yet. I do like dick grayson quite a lot. I think he's Is very interesting character because if you look at the original reasoning why worse as the counterpoint to batman and i'm so fascinated by this idea that if you go back and read detected twenty seven and some of batmans original stories there is this darkness. Stay bright and from the moment that robin shows up. It has this brighter. Sort of our meant that. I find really interesting that it was this immediate change in the series. So i think what's interesting to me about dick in about the robin character is the counterpoint representation. That's there with batman. I just find that. Very interesting fascinate. Why always always say that. You know i think dick grayson robin and later elfriede you know. Help make bring batman the greatness because otherwise he would just be like a loner mutter muttering himself in a cave. Yeah yeah. I think there's certainly truth that they humanize a little bit and otherwise he gets more remote. I mean i know that Once restoring on superman someone came up to me and said well you know. Wouldn't it be easier to write batman because he's so human superman is sailing and i said well you know went away. Batman is way more alien than superman arquette their way. More human than bruce wayne. So i don i did make that just made a good point. That's gonna be my new sound bit. Alright say But yeah and then. Like i say in the batman beyond boakye. That's that's been doing well too. But that that that's coming to an end fifties right. Yeah yeah number. Fifty is the last issue. And i just forget that strict today so that one is ready to go and now it's been a lot of fun. I mean Between the two versions of it the first which spun out features and then we transition to this one during rebirth. Who's actually been. It's been this nice little quite round that has existed for us where we can do a lot of things. Some familiar dc characters that weren't necessarily bound up by continuity..

"Those are sales that would never end up being realized in print as a physical product from the stores. Who desperately need that. So what we're doing is trying to work with retailers and give them a break by not putting that stuff up on the platform yet. Which for us is is hard to do because would be instantaneous. Solution to the problem but one that wouldn't serve us well in the long run and i just can't read digital comics as much as i try it. It's not as good as physical. It's not like movies or tv or video games where the digital versions just as good. It's it's just different. Just i just can't do it especially when you get a full spread like it's just drives me bonkers. Yeah it does me too. And i think that the best place where they fit for me is volume on an airplane. I m my ipad. You know at that point got five thousand comics with me right so right you know for something like that. It's perfect but i'm a print guy. And i like print so i i hear what you're say out of all the books you've written or started a bene- part of what's the one that stands out the most. I don't know that. I can nail it down to just one. I think that there have been several. Obviously the death of superman is something that stands out of in a very big way. We also had done a couple years after that marvel comics and dc comics together in their competitors right. But we're we all tend to be friends and we did Dc versus marvel. Which was you know. Get the all the heroes from both companies together in which obviously had to end up as a fight scene kind of thing so that's one and also the various things that i've created i had Will and before. I even get into that. I would say you know. I wrote sore at marble for about seven years so that was a good fun. Time also did spiderman and captain america there and then you know at dc Created a character called booster gold who has managed to last this long. So i'm gonna give you a round of applause. Yesterday i love booster. But yeah i mean it's i can't narrow it down to one are several different things but i think you hit on some of my favorite work of yours. You also did some stuff at valiant right like solar solar. Yeah that was amazing. That was a great run and then looking forward to to where we're going with comics and Kind of the state of the business has been doing some interesting things with the black series or the black label. Is that something you think. You'll pursue at some point. Potentially i would like to Right now it's a question of just trying to stay on top of everything that i do have as well as a couple of other things we're trying to get going And you know earlier. We kind of had a similar format that we just called. You know the prestige line am. I did several projects along that that fit into that format. And what's nice about. It is a chance to be a square bound format. No way adds anything like that. Yeah it's a. It's an for an artist especially that's a very fun way to work but because you can visualize more easily what it's going to look like as opposed to drawing page eighteen and then when the book comes out you see like this big garish. Add right next to it that interrupts the story. Close sequence so yeah. It's a nice way to work and you've been doing this forever at d. c. You have the clout to just be like. Sorry brian michael benders. But you know. I'm going to do this series for a bit and how you approached with characters and work like that i you know it's always a mix and and that's because there is never a winner path To creation is what. I always tell people that ideas are generated in a different way project. Concepts are generated in a different way. Sometimes it will be as as goofy as a couple people sitting down and having lunch and you start play the what if game and the next thing you know that turns into a tangible project other times it will be me saying to a couple of people you know. Try this try this and it becomes a project other times your phone rings and they'll say hey we've taken doing this and that you'd be perfect for would you be interested it things come about in a variety of different ways. Tell me about gen five. What can you tell me about that. That is something we are working on right now. So you know what had been released in the press. Is this idea that dc would be relaunching something later this year or wanting project call generation five as as something that would take another look at the heroes that are there My name was listed with a couple of others in terms of something that would start up. And it's we're still working on it. We're fine tuning it as thanks go on so oh i don't have a final answer for you yet because right now we honestly don't know what that final answer is but it's something we're still going to get to and hopefully We'll have some better answers. Maybe in a month or two and again that pins a lot on what happens in our real lives outside our windows. I'm guessing the justice league led by booster gold. I think that would be an awesome start. I could see that as a cover dan. Hey thank you so much for taking the time today. Best of luck to you out there. Stay safe and can't wait to see what comes hopefully sooner than later right exactly in the same to you guys. Take our okay you too..

"To get them out on the marketplace fairly soon. So let's say you do stop providing comics to these stores that are still open when everything opens up. Let's say there's a magical day where they open at once so it's not going to happen but let's say that does happen do think it'll be staggered and released. Let's say you have four issues a night wing that are stacked up or will they just all be available on that day. What's what's your opinion of that. I think it depends on how long the shutdowns last if stores are closed on average. Let's say one month Then we might be able to come back with something that approximates a reasonable schedule if it goes longer. Obviously you can't have him. I wouldn't think first of all. I should say i don't work in on the business side of it so i can't say for sure but a stores are closed a long time. You know. i don't know they can come back with a big market dump of product. So i think it's a long way of me saying i'm not sure everybody knows yet because we don't know how long this is going to last and we don't know how long it's going to take for example to perhaps fine viable alternatives and so to a certain extent. This is just uncharted territory. That were all trying to figure out. What does this mean as it goes on because every day seems to bring something different. So it's really going to get down to How long is this going to last. What is the state of the industry at that. Time who is still left to facilitate product movement Things like that. And i don't know that we have those answers yet. Yeah yeah it's it's been really eerie for me. Like i've been buying connex every wednesday since i was like eight or nine years old. Going to schindler's comics or schindler's was a bookseller tobacco seller baseball card seller in minnesota. It was one of my favorite spots to go as a child in any wednesday that there wasn't new books kind of left like a hole in my gut right like a hole in my heart. Like i was like. Oh i gotta come back tomorrow. It didn't feel right because it was clockwork for me right now. It's just like they're all gone. I'm outta new books to read. And so what i've been doing is reaching out to all of the minnesota vendors all the minnesota comic book shops to see what options they have for back issues and for our listeners. Out there that is something you can do reach out to him either. Facebook email phone. See what what options you have available because even if the storefront is an open they might be able to sell you trades and stuff like that through the internet or you know who knows you might end up driving to someone's house or something but there are ways to continue getting books what i would hope at this point. Is that If you go ahead and look at the essential businesses list that the governor has provided. It's it's bizarre. I mean basically if if you're affiliated with the union in any kind of shape or form great you're doing great right if you work with government great. You're doing wonderful. But i think what would be practical to me is Some kind of an order that says if you have a retail establishment and you can basically service your customer base as a takeout restaurant does so they don't even have to come inside you. Just carry the product out and boom there. It is that that would take us a long way to at least getting started again. And i think that's also very reasonable alternative. Because i am convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt when they started to make the decisions to close down so many businesses they did not possibly see all the ramifications coming that they are encountering. And i think that's the nature of government in a way that by and large they are people who have never worked in business so they obviously don't see the full reach what it is that they're doing and that's not to say that they didn't have a lot to consider. Obviously you know with corona virus and everything else is just that like so many of us you make decisions and there are ripple effects that you could not contemplate. That's all in terms of the state of the world rate now. Have you been inspired by by. What's going on right stories. Obviously you know when nine eleven happened. There was that very famous spiderman issue. That came out. I think it was j michael stravinsky. I might be butchering that. But they're released an issue shortly after. What are what is it kinda like for the creators right now of being in this uncertain time is changing some of the stories you have in your head or maybe creating new ones that you're going to bring forward in the next couple of months. It probably will more as we get past it. Part of it is. We're in the middle of it right so when nine eleven happened that was an event that happened in as inning of the towers and the pentagon themselves that happened in a very finite period of time and after that it became about cleanup and recovery. In how do we deal with it. And and that sort of thing. This is much more an ongoing situation that we don't have a handle on yet. I if someone were to say to me right now how do you make a story. Out of the corona virus. I don't know where i would start because as as it's something that isn't done yet. I haven't formulated my own complete thoughts on it yet. I feel like i don't have perspective. So that being the case man. I i don't know i just don't know where i would start for. Sure there's gonna come a day where i might but right now. I don't know what that would be when i think about it. It's like separation loneliness uncertainty. There's there's this kind of panic that just kind of hangs over everything and that very much goes against kind of the superhero code right like it's it's a very different thing. It's a very unsettling kind of take on the on the world and yeah. I'm curious to see what kind of happens to storytelling in general not just comic books but movies and tv shows and everything like that as as we kind of move forward hopefully not long right like i mean. That's the thing you keep hearing eighteen months and it's like can we even get that far right with business. Being shutdown comic book shops alone of have been struggling. You know even before the virus right. So i'm really worried about when things restart like what's still going to be there right. Yeah i and i think you hit on the key word earlier which is uncertainty and you know in a way you know. Superhero stories are all about certainty right. I mean here's the bad guy. Here's the conflict hero goes out and beat and takes care of it or he doesn't she doesn't whichever and then there are lessons learned from that something like that but the very nature of stories are that they have a beginning middle of an end and an end and where we are right now and i mean we don't know are we at the beginning or are we at the middle you know. We know we're not at the end. So that's what we're trying to figure out. Have you noticed like a surge in in digital downloads or subscriptions to digital companies such as marble or was it com ecology or something like that. It does that it's actually just the opposite because what we've been doing is withholding product on the digital platforms. Because what would happen is. Let's say i'll use my own book. As an example so might seventy. I think shipped two weeks ago maybe three so anybody wants read the next issue right wing seventy one if we put it on the digital platform we would. We know we will get x. Number of downloads and sales. But the problem is.

"Podcast. We said that we would be gone until comic stores opened again. But we actually had something cool happen. We have a comic creator. Who wanted to join us to talk about the state of things. Federal line is here by the way. Hello and let's just get right to it juergens in today. We have a very special guest. We have writer artist creator. Dan juergens welcome to the show. Sir thank you. It's going to be here. Andrew now you and i have a very complicated history. You don't know this or maybe you do. But the very first article. I ever wrote for game informer which i've been writing for for twenty six twenty seven years was about the death and returns death and return of superman the video game on super nintendo in genesis. Oh okay okay. Which for our listeners. Out there that is one of your biggest stories that you ever roach. Drew created was the death of superman that was event. There's people walking around town with these black wrist or black armbands that came with the comic. I was just like this is one of the biggest comic events i've ever been a part of and it turns out that ended up being the story that launched my video game career. I took that article that magazine to a thunderbird comic book convention and you were doing signings there and i put it down in front of you and you're like oh my god i've never seen this before. Okay okay and i was freaking out because it was a terrible like my my writing was terrible and the editing on it was just as bad like we had no idea what we were doing. We were just a bunch of kids putting together a video game magazine right. Yup flash forward twenty some odd years. I start doing a radio. Show with paul church ian on k. Fan it's a video game show on a sports network doesn't make sense but it turns out. You are friends with paul church right. Yeah so we ended up connecting through twitter that way. And that is how you ended up on this show right. In in the one thing we should clarify. Is that when you refer to the thunderbird so that people don't think of it as a car you're referring to the thunderbird hotel which used to be down around the mall of america in the twin cities and was wholly and totally unique in its own way. Yeah yeah i mean so much. I guess you'd say native american history from the minnesota area. The most stuffed animals like actual animals stuffed. I think i've seen outside of chicago museum. Yeah but once you went upstairs into that that convention room it was magical for comic fans because it was wall to wall just folding tables of comic books it was amazing right in. It was certainly what we had at the time and it served the twin cities very well when other professionals would come in as guests to that show you know they would stay at the hotel as well and it kinda gained the phrase or term twin peaks lodge with a lot of people. So that's also what we thought of it. But it was a lot of i gotta ask you as a writer and artist like you do it all for comic books. What's your favorite part is that the writing is creating is the actual art like seeing it come to life. I never see it as two distinct jobs. And that's people find that odd. I look at it and say i'm a storyteller. I write a story. And i draw a story when i'm doing it all myself because sometimes i write stories for others. Sometimes i draw stories that others have written but when i do it myself i will change the story and make some tweaks to continue to work on the story as i draw so i don't see it as two entirely different tasks for me. It's just being creative and telling a story. If you asked me which. I prefer when i'm working with others. I get a certain amount of juice off working with friends and colleagues and getting inside their heads a little bit to see how they work so. When i'm working with another artist often they will draw differently than i would have but then when it comes in part of the fine is what it looks like and why it's different in ans- because they think differently than i did in. It's the same thing when i draw or other writers where i get inside their head a little bit and i can see oh there. They were approached this differently tonight. Do so we all learn from people. We work with sometimes good sometimes bad for me. It's all part of the storytelling telling process. You are a mainstay rate. Now at dc comics writing night wing. What other series do you have Kind of in the pipeline. I am writing night. Wing also writing batman beyond a i had been doing some work on our exclusive giants line for wal-mart. We have a couple of things coming up yet later. This year that have not yet been announced but should be soon. So you know we're constantly in this. Were weird world where the stuff. I'm working on now is. Let's see it's april so in theory. What i'm doing now are late. June july books and then as we plan. We're looking at fourth quarter so we try. We're ahead so i if you asked me what my last issue number of something was just came out. I would actually have a hard time. i'd have to think about. You said your your head. Is it just business as usual now during this kind of get into the state of the world now. During this lockdown comic books stores are closed and they even stopped production of digital comics because they want the comic stores to thrive right like they want these releases having a physical presence and digital presence. But for you as the creators. Are you still pumping out issues. Getting the edits. Obviously you're not getting the final copies sent in the mail. But where are you at kind of in the process. So you're right We're all in a very strange set of circumstances right now. We are continuing to work. I i mean it's weird because like my wife has homeworking as well right now. The whole neighborhood is home working. And i see people who obviously are working relaxed schedules. I am not one of them. I'm going for it's like for me. Nothing has changed. Obviously the market has changed and what we are still trying to do is figure out you know what exactly is the market. So for example in minnesota comic stores are closed. There are many other states where they are allowed to do curbside pickup so if they have new comics to sell their customer bases can pull up out front. Having ordered down retailer walks out puts them in the back seat or the trunk just like takeout food and they can drive away with their comments. Part of what we're doing is trying to figure out how many of those stores are still wanting new comics versus. How many don't because they're closed by the government what happens when a distributor who basically service the entire industry is no longer shipping books. So we have all these logistical things. Were trying to take care of right now. But in the meantime for us at dc we are continuing to push ahead and create comics with the hope that will be able.

"You a round of applause. I love booster but yeah I mean it's you can't narrow it down to one. There are several different things. I think you hit on some of my favorite work of yours. You also did some stuff at valiant right like did Solar Solar Yeah. That was amazing. It was a great run and then looking forward to to where we're going with comics and of kind of the the state of the the business has been doing some interesting things with the black series or the black label. Is that something you think you'll pursue at some point potentially I would like to Right now it's a question of just trying to stay on top of everything that I do have as well as a couple of other things we're trying to get going And you know earlier. We kind of had a similar format. We just called you know the Prestige Line Am. I did several projects along Matt that fit into that format. And what's Nice about? It is ca chance to be a square bound format. No adds anything like that. Yeah IT'S A. It's an for an artist especially that's a very fun way to work but because you can visualize more easily what it's going to look like as opposed to drawing you know page eighteen and then when the book comes out you see like this big garish. Add right next to that interrupts. The story flow sequence. So yeah it's a nice way to work and you've been doing this forever at DC. You have the clout to just be like sorry. Brian Michael Benders but You know I'm GonNa do this series for a bit and how are you approached with characters and work like that? I you know it's always a mix and that's because there is never a winner path To creation is what I always tell. People that ideas are are generated in a different way project concepts are generated in a different way. Sometimes it will be as as Goofy as a couple people sitting down and having lunch and you play the what if game and the next thing you know that turns into a tangible project other times it will be me Saying to a couple people you know try this you gotta try and it becomes a project other times your phone rings and they'll say hey we've taken doing this and that you'd be perfect for it. Would you be interested it? Things come about in a variety of different ways. Tell me about Gen five. What can you tell me about that? That is something we're working on right now. So you know what had been released In the press is this idea that Dc would be relaunching something later this year or wanting in project called generation five as as something that would take another look at the heroes. That are there My name was listed with a couple of others in terms of something that would start up. And it's we're still working on it. We're fine tuning it as things go on so oh I don't have a final answer for you yet. Because right now we honestly don't know what that final answer is but it's something we're still going to get to and hopefully We'll have some better answers. Maybe a month or two and again. Daca pens a lot on what happens in our real lives outside our windows. I'm guessing the Justice League led by booster gold. I think that would be awesome. Start I see that as a cover..

"Businesses list that the governor has provided. It's it's bizarre. I mean basically if if you're affiliated with a union in any kind of shape or form great you're doing great right if you work with government great. You're doing wonderful but I think what would be practical to me is Some kind of an order that says if you have a retail establishment and you can basically service your customer base as a takeout restaurant does so they don't even have to come inside you. Just carry the product out and boom there. It is that that would take us a long way to at least getting started again. And I think that's also very reasonable alternative. Because I am convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt when they started to make the decisions to close down so many businesses they did not. Hasley see all the ramifications coming that they are encountering and and I think that's the nature of government in a way that by and large they are people who have never worked in business so they obviously don't see the the full reach what it is that they're doing and that's not to say that they didn't have a lot to consider. Obviously you know with Corona virus and everything else is just that like so many of us you make decisions and there are a ripple effects that you could not contemplate. That's all in terms of the state of the world right now. Have you been inspired by by? What's going on to write stories? Obviously you know when nine eleven happened. There was very famous spiderman issue. That came out. I think it was J. Michael Stravinsky might be butchering that. But they're released an issue shortly after. What are what is it Kinda? Like for the creators right now of being in this uncertain time is changing some of the stories you have in your head or maybe creating new ones that you're going to bring forward in the next couple of months. It probably will more as we get past part of it is. We're in the middle of it right so when nine eleven happened that was an event that happened in as of the towers and the Pentagon themselves that happened a very finite period of time and after that it became about cleanup and recovery. And how do we deal with it and and that sort of thing? This is much more an ongoing situation that we don't have a handle on yet. I if someone were to say to me right now how do you make a story out of the Corona Virus? I don't know where I would start because as as it's something that isn't done yet. I haven't formulated my own complete thoughts on it yet. I feel like I don't have perspective. So that being the case man. I just don't know where I would start for sure. There's GonNa come a day where I might but right now. I don't know what that would be when I think about it. It's like separation loneliness you know just uncertainty. There's there's this kind of panic that just kind of hangs over everything and that very much goes against kind of the Superhero Code. Right like it's It's a very different thing. It's a very unsettling kind of take on the on the world a I'm I'm curious to see what kind of happens to storytelling in general not just comic books but movies and TV shows and everything like that as as we kind of move forward hopefully not long right like I mean. That's the thing you you keep hearing eighteen months and it's like can we even get that far right with being shutdown comic book shops alone of have been struggling even before the Iris right so I'm really worried about when things start like what's still going to be there right? Yeah I I and I think you hit on the key word earlier. Which is uncertainty and you know. In a way superhero stories are all about certainty right. I mean here's the bad guy. Here's the conflict hero goes out and beat and takes care of or he doesn't she doesn't whichever and then there are lessons learned from that something like that but the very nature of stories are that they have a beginning middle of an end and an end and where we are right now and I mean we don't know are we at the beginning or are we at the middle you know. We know we're not end. So that's what we're trying to figure out have you noticed like a surge in in digital downloads or subscriptions to digital companies such as marvel or Was the comic or something like that. It does that it's actually just the opposite because what we've been doing is withholding product on the digital platforms. Because what would happen is. Let's say I'll use my own book as an example so might wing seventy I think shipped two weeks ago maybe three so anybody wants read the next issue night. Wing seventy one. We put it on the digital platform we would we know we will get X. number of downloads and sales but the problem is those are sales that would never end up being realized in print as a physical product from the stores. Who desperately need that. So what we're doing is trying to work with retailers and give him a break by not putting that stuff up on the platform yet. Which for us is. It's hard to because would be instantaneous. Solution to the problem but one that wouldn't serve us well in the long run and I just can't read digital comics as much as I try. I it's not as good as physical. It's not like movies or TV or video games where the digital versions just as good. It's it's just different I I just I just can't do it. Especially when you get a full spread like it's just drives me bonkers. Yeah it does me too and I think that.

"Long the shutdowns last you know if if stores are closed on average let's say one month Then we might be able to come back with something that approximates a reasonable schedule if it goes longer. Obviously you can't have him. I wouldn't think I while I should say I don't work in on the business side of it so I can't say for sure but a stores are closed the long time you know. I don't know they can come back with a big market dump of product so I think it's a long way of me saying I'm not sure everybody knows yet because we don't know how long this is going to last and we don't know how long it's going to take for example to perhaps fine viable alternatives and so to a certain extent. This is just uncharted territory. That we're all trying to figure out. What does this mean as it goes on because every day seems to bring something different? So it's really GONNA get down to How long is this going to last? What is the state of the industry at that time who is still left to facilitate product movement Things like that and I don't know that we have those answers yet. Yeah it's it's been really eerie for me like I've been buying comics every Wednesday since I was like eight or nine years. Old going to Schindler's Comex or Schindler's was a bookseller. Tobacco SELLER BASEBALL CARD SELLER IN MINNESOTA was one of my favorite spots to go as a child in any Wednesday that there wasn't new books kind of left like a hole in my gut right like a hole in my heart. I was like oh I got to come back tomorrow. It didn't feel right because it was clockwork for me right now. It's just like they're all gone. I'm new books to read. And so what I've been doing is reaching out to all of the Minnesota vendors all the Minnesota comic book shops to see what options they have back issues and for our listeners out there that is something you can do reach out to him either. Facebook email phone. See what what options you have available because even if the storefront is an open they might be able to sell you trades and stuff like that through the internet or you know who knows you might end up driving to someone's house or something but there's there are ways to continue getting books what I would hope at this point. Is that If you go ahead and look at the essential.

"Welcome everyone to a very special episode of the Spectacular Comic Book Podcast. We said that we would be gone until comic stores opened again. But we actually had something cool happen. We have a comma creator. Who wanted to join us to talk about? The state of things fedor line is here by the way. Hello and let's just get right to it interview with Dan Juergens and today we have a very special guest. We have writer artist Creator. Dan juergens welcome to the show. Sir Thank you. It's going to be here. Andrew now you and I have a very complicated history. You don't know this or maybe you do. But the very first article I ever wrote for Game Informer which I've been writing for for twenty. Six twenty seven years was about the death and returns death and return of Superman the video game on Super Nintendo in Genesis. Oh okay okay. Which for our listeners. Out there that is one of your biggest stories that you ever wrote drew created was the death of Superman that was event. There's people walking around town with these black wrist or black armbands that came with the comic. I was just like this is one of the biggest comic events. I've ever been a part of and it turns out that ended up being the story that launched my video game career. I took that article that magazine to a Thunderbird Comic Book Convention and you were doing signings there and put it down in front of you and you're like Oh my God. I've never seen this before. Okay Okay and I was freaking out because it was a terrible like my. My writing was terrible. The editing on it was just as bad like we had no idea what we were doing. We were just a bunch of kids. Put together a video game magazine right. Yup Flash forward twenty some odd years. I start doing a radio show with Paul Church in on K. Fan. It's a video game show on a sports network doesn't make sense but it turns out. You are friends with Paul Church yet right. Yeah so. We ended up connecting through twitter that way. And that is how you ended up on this show right. In the in the one thing we should clarify. Is that when you refer to the thunderbird so that people don't think of it as a car You're referring to the thunderbird hotel which used to be down around the mall of America in the twin cities and was holy in totally unique in. Its own way. Yeah yeah I mean so much? I guess you'd say native American history from the Minnesota Area. The most stuffed animals like actual animals stuffed. I think I've seen outside of Chicago Museum. Yeah but once you went upstairs into that that convention room it was magical for comic fans because it was wall-to-wall just fulling tables of comic books. It was amazing right in it. Was You know it certainly what we had at the time and it served twincities very well when other professionals would come in as guests to that show you know they would stay at the hotel as well and it? Kinda gained the phrase or term twin peaks lodge with a lot of people. So that's also what we thought. But there's a lot of I gotta ask you as a writer and artists like you do it all for comic books. What's your favorite part? Is it the writing is creating is at the actual art like seeing it? Come to life. I never see it as two distinct jobs. And that's people find that odd. I look at it and say I'm a storyteller. I write a story and I draw a story when I'm doing it all myself because sometimes I write stories for others. Sometimes I draw stories that others have written but when I do it myself I will change the story and make some tweaks to continue to work on the story as I draw so I don't see it as two entirely different tasks for me. It's just being creative and telling a story. If he asked me which I prefer when I'm working with others I get a certain amount of juice off working with brands colleagues and getting inside their heads a little bit to see how they work. So when I'm working with another artist often they will drop differently than I would have but then when it comes in part of the is seeing what it looks like and why it's in ans- because they think differently than I did in. It's the same thing when I draw for other writers. Were I get inside their head a little bit and I can see oh there. They were approached this differently tonight. So we all learn from people we work with sometimes good sometimes bad for me. It's all part of the storytelling process. You are a mainstay rate. Now at DC comics writing night wing. What other series do you have Kind of in the pipeline. I am writing night wing also writing Batman beyond a I had been doing some work on our exclusive giants line for wal-mart. We have a couple of things coming up later this year that have not yet been announced but should be soon so we're constantly.
