Kinda “Holy Crap”ped pretty hard when I saw this write up on USAToday of ten writers they would like to see take over Action Comics once Grant Morrison’s run ends. It’s a fine list with a lot of great suggestions including Brian Michael Bendis, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Joshua Hale Fiaklov, Joe Hill (man, that guy would kill on a Batbook, come to think of it), Nick Spencer, Brad Meltzer, Steven Moffat, Bryan K. Vaughn, Joss Whedon and…
Joe Keatinge. If DC were willing to, say, give Superman a fresh, very contemporary and even punk-rock edge, the Hell Yeah writer would be perfect. He’d definitely bring a sense of fun and enthusiasm to a 74-year-old character and maybe even a bit of a bizarro nature to him. (And of course Bizarro would have to be in it, too.) And if Action Comics isn’t available, someone give him a Power Girl book.
I’m just flattered to be included in such company. All those names are people I admire big time. Big thanks to USAToday for the endorsement.
