Hey Greg, theres something I would like to ask your opinion about.

You see comics have been notorious for being hard on average people to get into. You should know that your cartoons have been much more influential than whatever it's publised on printed form.

For millions of people when they think Young Justice they think of earth 16 and when they think of spiderman they think of spectacular.

Say Teen Titans Tv show' has Starfire as a cute alien and naive girl wich is among the best female characters ever in my opinion. While on comics she is a dumb bimbo with hardly more personalitybthan a brick

Comics on the other hand are harder to get into and well you might jot agree but the quality is much better in cartoons such as yours. I would rather watch young justice that get into the continuity mess that comics are.

It would seem that every continiuity reboot that tries to make things simpler just makes things worse.

In your experience what would you do to make comics as approachable as tv shows are?

Greg responds...

Well, I'm going to start - without going point by point - by NOT agreeing with everything you've stated above. Some comics have issues. Some are both accessible and very well-done. In general, I'm really liking DC's REBIRTH, for example. I'm reading all of it - trying to keep up. I don't love every series, let alone every issue, but generally, I think they're doing a pretty darn good job. I'd particularly recommend Wonder Woman.

And I think there are plenty of crap television series, as well.

It's all about execution. Plenty of good comics series. Plenty of good television series. Plenty of lousy examples of both. But I'm glad you like YJ and Spectacular.

Hi Greg,

My name is Jake Cannon and I'm working on an oral history podcast about Paul Germain and Joe Ansolabehere focusing on One Saturday Morning, using the participants real voices. For the podcast, I've already spoken with Jymn Magon, Bill Kopp, and Tad Stones from Disney Afternoon.

I was wondering if you would be interested in being interviewed since your show is the largest break from the Disney style and universe.

I could do a quick skype or phone interview if you're available.

Greg responds...

I don't really know Paul or Joe, and didn't really work on One Saturday Morning. I'm enough of a publicity whore to enjoy doing podcasts, but it doesn't seem like I'd have anything to contribute to this particular one.

hey greg do you watch anime if not try watching jojo bizarre adventure or read the manga its a really good anime

Greg responds...

I don't watch much anime (or many cartoons in general). It's unfair, but because I spend my professional life immersed in animation, it kinda feels like work to me. And I don't read much manga either.

What are your thoughts on the return of Samurai Jack?

Greg responds...

I'm happy for my buddy Phil LaMarr. But I haven't ever seen the show myself. That's not meant as a comment on it. I just never got around to it.

I have a major question for you. Greg, what do you think of the infamous animation critic Mr. Enter.

Greg responds...

Never heard of him. Which is not meant as an insult to the man. I don't get around much. Especially on the internet. Keep in mind, I'm 53 and a borderline Luddite.
