Gamasutra has a pretty interesting interview with Sony Online Entertainment's Wes Yanagi on the upcoming DC Universe Online. One of the subjects Yanagi discusses is working with the incredibly talented Jim Lee (X-Men, WildC.A.T.s, Batman). Yanagi says:
I really hope that DC Universe Online's art truly resemble a video-game version of Jim Lee's famous work. It would make the game one of the most stylish and best-looking MMOs on the market. Even though Lee is consulting on the project, I'm afraid something will get lost in translation. It's just hard to take great looking 2D art and transform it into 3D art that's playable. Perhaps I'm being too pessimistic (though I'm probably just afraid of being disappointed).
