Greg Rucka has been part of our mythical Gotham City for some time, having written novels about the Caped Crusader and being no stranger to the comics scene, with numerous graphic novels on a variety of well-known characters to his credit. Rucka was tapped for writing duties on the new animated direct-to-DVD movie "Batman: Gotham Knight," releasing in July. He recently spoke about writing one of the segments in the movie, working with the animated guys and about the whole Batman thing in general; ComicVine.com has the interview.
