William Messner-Loebs is back!

What an amazing surprise, mostly because it's been done quietly. William Messner-Loebs, who wrote for the Flash and Wonder Woman years ago, is now being assigned as the writer for Green Arrow's second volume! His name appears on the right side below the issue month (via this page on the Comics Continuum):

I'm certainly glad that finally, Messner-Loebs is being given something to help him out of the horrible financial situation he got into a few years ago, because DC and Marvel wouldn't hire him anymore, due to his not being "hot" anymore. Which is not just baloney, but one of the biggest problems with today's industry - that it relies very heavily on who's "hot" and just how well they'll sell with whomever is left, and put the drawing of new readers on a lower level of importance.

With any luck, maybe this'll help to change things for the better.


About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
