John was asked on his website:

 Do you have any favourite comic stories that you’ve written either a) that you drew yourself or b) drawn by someone else - and I just mean the story so regardless of how well the art turned out. Story could be a single issue or a whole storyline or run.

John’s reply:

Two spring to mind, for very different reasons.

BATMAN & CAPTAIN AMERICA, which was a dream come true.

METROPOLIS 900 MILES, which made me feel something like an honest-to-gosh WRITER.

Pick either, and I will be content!

Photos from the upcoming movie, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice show that at least one scene will be taking place at Ralli’s Diner. I wonder if we will see Lex make Jenny an offer on screen in 2016?
