    Dear Mr. Williams,
    it’s “smoky man” here, from Italy.
    Hope you remember me. In 2003 I co-edited – with G. Spencer Millidge – that “Alan Moore: Portrait” tribute book you contributed to. 🙂

    I email you because I put together a blog dedicated to Moore, alanmooreworld.blogspot.com, so… I was wondering, considering that our “Alan Moore: Portrait..” is sold out, if it’s possible to get your permission for posting there, sooner or later, the text you wrote for the volume.

    Thanks in advance for your support,
    waiting for your reply

    a big ciao from Sardinia, Italy 🙂

      Hi Smoky Man!

      Yeah, I remember that. of course.

      It’s fine by me to post the essay there, if Trev is good with you using his illustration. No problem as far as I’m concerned.

      Hope all’s well.

    Hello Rob,

    Happy New Year!….if you remember me i am the person that asked if you could sign a few copies of Unfollow early last year. I would ship them to you in a box and include postage, sharpie and materials to ship them back to me. The only thing i would ask of you is your time to sign and drop off at the post office…..if you would honor this request that would be greatly appreciated. please let me know if that is possible…

    Mr Williams
    theres something i’v been curious about in Martian Manhunter’s rebirth series, I know the series has had various artists but the i was curious about the design choices on the Green Martians, specifically those Golden parts on their bodies (i know its a small detail but its been bugging me not knowing what they were and why only the green have them, are they just decretive patterns or what ?

    also again, this is probably down to the artists, but the designs seem to slowly lose consistency from one issue to the next, i would appreciate it if you could get back to me on this.

    • Rob Williams says:

      Hi Tom, that’s an artistic choice, yeah. Wasn’t specified in the script so can’t answer that, I’m afraid.

    thanks for getting back to me, though there was something else worth talking about, i know the idea of DC’s rebirth series to fix and reboot a lot of things but did you really feel it necessary to change quite a lot of Martian Manhunter’s backgrounds and origins, are Ma’alefa’ak and J’onn still brothers ? granted, there have been constant changes where his if you had altered so much of batman’s origins the fans would probably be up in arms about it, were there any changes you made that you feel you might regret ?

    • Rob Williams says:

      Hey, well, first off, we did Martian Manhunter prior to Rebirth.

      ‘but did you really feel it necessary to change quite a lot of Martian Manhunter’s backgrounds and origins.”

      Yes, I clearly did, and considering, post-New 52, that a lot of the origin material of the past was in flux and open to change, we told the best story we could.
