Nick Spencer is a Douche and Other News

Nick Spencer, current writer of T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents and half of an issue of Supergirl just signed a Marvel exclusive contract to write an Iron Man book (Iron Man 2.0 get it cuz he's a robot) and Secret Avengers (which is actually kind of a sweet book, and perfect for Spencer's brand of super-conspiritor thriller books). He's apparently still writing his Morning Glories book, which I've never read, but most likely will be coming off T.H.U.N.D.E.R. in the coming months.

If Spencer is at C2E2, I'm gonna punch him in his face.

Well no, not really, but I'm gonna take a picture of him while the camera's moving, so he looks all blurry and overweight. Yeahhhhhh.

Not to go on a rant, but poo to you I'm going to do it anyway, it really feels like DC really dropped the ball on locking Spencer up. Sure, they bolted Scott Snyder down, and Chris Roberson seems promising, but other than those two individuals (and possibly Lemire from "Sweet Tooth" fame) DC really doesn't have a lot of 3rd or 4th tier talent... Hell, even their 2nd teir is shaky. Look at the current writers on Flashpoint at the moment; how many Tony Bedard written books do we need to read? One, and it's R.E.B.E.L.S. (which is gettin' canned)

On the flipside, Action Comics is bringing on Kenneth Rocafort (that name is going to be hilariously misspelled in NO TIME) as the artist for Paul Cornell. Don't know who Rocafort is? He's from Top Cow. Still nothin'? Look at this upcoming cover. You'll know who he is soon.

That is just a purdy, purdy picture.

In other related news, I'm getting myself amped up for C2E2 in my own way... I need to dress like someone from the press. I'm thinking a pair of chic glasses (no no prescription lenses, just glass) and a surly disposition ought to do it. But honestly, Ron and I are stoked for the opportunity to talk to idols of ours (or in Ron's case, Eliza Dushku aka Megan's Law Victim #12). Little under 2 weeks until the festivities begin.

Oh, and stay tuned for the next Progressively Aggressive podcast, featuring our first show over Skype! Technology is just used so meaningfully, aint it?

Take us home, keyboard cat!

Keyboard cat, nooooooooooooooooooooooo!
