Re: Multiple omic book series focusing on the same character

Well, in general (and that is as far as I understand it) there are two different ways to go.

One, the books are all relatively independent from one another, with only major changes being passed from one creative team to the other through the editor.

The other one, the books work really as one series and the writers have to work closer together, giving the editor that much more work.

While the first option is used very often, as examples are the current Superman books, the Batman books for the most part (not the current ones, I'm afraid) and Marvel's X-titles, good examples for the second option are the current Batman books and, especially, the 90s Superman books (those really were very tied together, with the editor and writers having regular meetings similar to the producers and writing staff of a TV show).
