In other news, Pete Woods was interviewed by Chris Arrant at Newsarama:

With Detective Comics I moved on to a much more dark, shadowy, and realistic style more befitting the mood of Batman. Catwoman was more challenging to come up with a style."

We're in the paper 

"On any given day, you will find a majority of the 11 artist members bent over their drawing boards, conjuring the worlds of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Catwoman and the Fantastic Four, among others.

It's a colorful, riotous place that seems a bit like a comic book universe itself, where shelves groan beneath art reference books and model cars and stuffed piranhas, the stereo blares "Eaten by the Monster of Love," and on a recent afternoon, one member was scanning photographs of his own face being ground into a carpet, so that he would have a photo reference for the latest fight scene he needed to draw."

There were a bunch of great photos too, which aren't on line. I'll get them scanned in a bit.
