Which writer would you like to write at DC (either for the first time or return)?

Cary Bates, Elliot S! Maggin, Chuck Dixon and the great Denny O’Neil on just about anything at DC right NOW!!!

I mean, a few years ago I woulda said “Bendis” with no hope it’s be a reality, but life truly can be stranger than fiction!

I would be interested in a Jason Aaron on a Batman/Bat-Family title. Or Donny Cates on Teen Titans. Or Dan Slott on Superman.

I always longed for a year-long swap of Marvel and DC writers/artists, all out of continuity, just let them do “their” story and then be out. No chance of course, but my fanboy heart can dream

I think I would sooner put Aaron on a Superman title – his take on Thor kind of reminded me of “what if Superman was a reformed frat douchebag.” Could be interesting to see how he would portray the Man of Steel.

But keep Dan Slott away from…pretty much every character, really. After his abysmal Spider-Man, I pretty much avoid anything he touches.

Chuck Wendig is currently my favorite working author, comic books and otherwise. I’d love to see him do a batwoman, spoiler etc. run.

I thought about Aaron on Superman because his Thor run was magnificent, but I thought I’d like to see him take a “grounded” character for a bit and play around with it.

I really enjoyed Slott’s run on Spider-Man, but can totally understand where people could have not taken to it. I do think that his love for the characters comes through and I dig that

I’d love to see Greg Rucka come back, I think he could handle a Black Label Batwoman story like no ones business.

[Left side-mouth]I think Mr_Morbach should write for DC Comics!
[Right Side-mouth] Yeah, that’s a great idea!

Guys, stop, you’re embarrassing me!

I’d love to see Charles Soule come back and have his own run of Swamp Thing that he could start and finish.

Rucka is already back, he’s been writing a Lois Lane maxi-series.

That said, I certainly wouldn’t say no to more of him writing Kate.

That’s awesome, didn’t realize. I’d ask if it’s good, but it’s Rucka, so I’m sure the answer is yes. The man is pretty great. Every time a new issue of Lazarus drops it makes my week.

I like this pick. But then I looked up what he has been doing lately, and now I really want them to hire him.

I had no idea about Messner-Loebs situation, it’s tragic. DC should step up and give him some work.
