“George Perez would like to draw a story for Wonder Woman #600, and he wants you to write it.” What? George Perez what? He wants WHO to write it? I’ve had some amazing experiences as a writer in the time I’ve been at DC Comics, but every comic writer will tell you there’re few things as thrilling as working with an artist you’ve adored for years. Every assignment is special and important, but writing JLA for Jose Garcia Lopez, writing Superman for John Byrne, or writing a Black Canary story for Michael Golden, well, those are moments a writer lives for.
