What If The Screenwriter Of An Oscar-Nominated Movie Wrote Your Comic But You Forgot To Tell Anyone?

ThecoolerposterTraditional comic book writers love to complain about how publishers often turn to TV or movie writers for comic books, trying to get some extra publicity or attention for the comic.

But what if a publisher did that, and then never bothered to tell anyone?

That’s what happened with Supergirl today. Frank Hannah, writer of Cooler, a movie nominated for an Oscar and Golden Globe, as well as winning a bunch of critics awards wrote it, and no one bothered to tell anyone until it was published, with his name not even on the cover. Even now, no press release, no publicity, nothing.

Regular artist Mahmud Asrar tweeted that it was a fill-in and that he’d be back with new writer Michael Alan Nelson. But it’s still rather odd.

So who will be writing your comics next week? Tom Stoppard? Alan Bennett? Could be anyone! Surprise!!!
