ED BRUBAKER is frankly too good a writer and nudist to affiliate with such a seedy column as this, but there you go. The recently Eisner-nominated writer of SLEEPER, GOTHAM CENTRAL, and CATWOMAN is also a pretty good guy, ask anyone.
Anything I say about SCOTT MORSE is just going to sound like butt-kissing, so I’m sticking with the fact that he’s one of the creators whose work is an automatic pick-up for me, no questions asked. SOULWIND, VISITATIONS, VOLCANIC REVOLVER and MAGIC PICKLE are all from Oni Press and highly highly recommended.
GAIL SIMONE is as sweet as Tupelo honey, and is currently writing BIRDS OF PREY, ROSE AND THORN, multiple Simpsons comics, and other nudie literature.
Multi-talented JOE CASEY likes rock music and porn, or at least that’s a thing I made up about him. When he’s not playing in his band, THE SELLOUTS, he’s writing ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN, WILDCATS VERSION 3.0, and AUTOMATIC KAFKA, among others. He’s got MONOLITH from Ait/PlanetLar and BATMAN: TENSES coming soon, so buy buy buy! Full, naked details at www.manofaction.tv/casey/index.html.
TY TEMPLETON daily commits the sins of being both a HIPPIE and a CANADIAN, but bless his heart for writing the brilliant Vertigo graphic novel BIGG TIME, and the upcoming HUMAN DEFENSE LEAGUE. He’s done some of the best Batman stories ever, and also the cult fave MAD DOG.
Here’s a fact: CHYNNA CLUGSTON-MAJOR’S comics would be a great deal at many times the price. I’ve read a couple of the Blue Monday collections to near-tatters, and you will, too, if you buy ’em. Which you should. Full info on BLUE MONDAY and the upcoming SCOOTER GIRL (both from Oni), at onipress.com. Not a nudist, I’m told.
PETER DAVID has long been one of comics funniest and most versatile scribes and the mastermind behind a legendary run on THE INCREDIBLE HULK. He’ll be writing a new series that DC is excited about called FALLEN ANGELS, starting in July, and a new T.M.N.T. series for Dreamwave. He’s also somehow got the following novels coming out; a third ‘Sir Apropos of Nothing’ volume, two new STAR TREK: NEW FRONTIER novels in October and November, and the adaptation of the HULK film.
BUDDY SCALERA wrote one of my favorite issues of DEADPOOL, as well as the WEAPON X: SAURON special, and the very good book DECOY. He’s recently produced a series of Cd-roms, “Visual Reference for Comic Artists. 500+ custom photos of models in dramatic superheroic poses specifically designed for the needs of comic artists. Plus, hundreds of shots of cities, subways, and other uniquely useful locations.” He probably sneaked in some nipples. Purchase them at buddyscalera.com.
ANTONY JOHNSTON is the extremely talented writer of DANGEROUS CURVES, ROSEMARY’S BACKPACK, and a new fave of mine, THREE DAYS IN EUROPE. Upcoming books include, “THE COURTYARD and ANOTHER SUBURBAN ROMANCE from Avatar, and EMILY SPOOK and CLOSER still to come from Oni.” Check Antony’s hot fleshy website at www.mostlyblack.com
RON ZIMMERMAN is the living embodiment of all that is evil, according to some freak on a message board somewhere. Ron’s written for SEVENTH HEAVEN, HOWARD STERN, and many other similarly-themed programs, and is currently developing a series for Disney. In comics, he’s written the severely under-rated ULTIMATE ADVENTURES, as well as GET KRAVEN, RAWHIDE KID, and SPIDER-MAN: SWEET CHARITY. Even when he’s DRESSED, he’s naked.
PAUL D. STORRIE made a big splash with his fun, funky GOTHAM GIRLS mini, and his ROBYN of SHERWOOD titles. He’s an innie. He’s also got a cool shortie in the upcoming BIRDS OF PREY SECRET FILES.
I’m a big fan of JEN VAN METER’s stuff, from the Blair Witch Chronicle books, to her recent Batman: Elseworlds book, and my fave, the excellent HOPELESS SAVAGES. It’s as good as the hype, so you should get it. She’s also got a couple major projects coming up…one called CINNAMON for DC and the other’s a family addition, I think.
J. TORRES is the incredibly busy writer of ALISON DARE, JASON AND THE ARGOBOTS, and SIDEKICKS, all for Oni Press. Don’t miss DAYS LIKE THESE, either, as it looks excellent. The full collected COPYBOOK TALES is also recommended. He’s also recently done some nice Marvel work, including BLACK PANTHER and X-MEN: RONIN. Onipress.com
PAUL DINI is the guy with no pants who helped create the amazing Batman animated series, the huge-mongous DC special books with Alex Ross, and the very entertaining Jingle Belle and Mutant, Texas books from Oni Press. You must own these, or you’re just wrong in all ways. Go to Jinglebelle.com for all sortsa exclusive fun items.
ANDY DIGGLE wrote the very entertaining LADY CONSTANTINE and JUDGE DREAD vs. ALIENS. He’s also got SNOW/TIGER coming in April from 2000 AD, and THE LOSERS coming from Vertigo in June. Check out his website, which has no nude pictures of Aliens.
A couple weeks ago, I ate weird Mexican food at Disneyland. MARK WAID had a barbecue sandwich or something. It was pretty sloppy, and yet he got none on his shirt or pants. Oh, and also, he’s revitalized so many books they think of him as a reverse-hitman. FLASH, KINGDOM COME, FANTASTIC FOUR, RUSE, EMPIRE, and too many more too list. Great writer, great friend, fastidious eater of BBQ.
JOE KELLY is, as many people wouldn’t let me forget, the definitive Deadpool writer, as well as one of comics’ funniest writers. He currently writes JUSTICE LEAGUE and ACTION, and also his condensed classic here, which is oddly longer than the average mini-series script, but worth it. Plus, he created Blind Al and Weasel! Check out all his good naked stuff at http://www.manofaction.tv/kelly/index.html.
