Hey, all, nerd-gasm here. One of the best parts of this job is that you occasionally get to call up people you admire out of the blue and ask them if they want to play in your sandbox. Sometimes, they say “yes”. So…
I managed to convince Starz and the powers that be to hire Matt and Jonathan on to write two episodes of Season 2 with our trusty staff.
In case you don’t know who Hickman and Fraction are — they are comic gods in the indie and Marvel world.
Jonathan kicked holy crap out of Fantastic Four for a number of years and is currently writing The Avengers. He’s also done some incredible indie books through Image like Pax Romana and The Manhattan Project.
Fraction inherited the two FF books from Hickman and also writes the Eisner-nominated book Hawkeye, which pretty much redefined the super-hero genre. He also created the quirky indie book Casanova.
I also tried to get Thomas Pynchon, but he said “no”.
