It doesn't matter how many great writers one has on staff if one refuses to let them be creative. That would be like getting the worlds most famous scientists from through-out history & then getting them to work in a homeopathy clinic.... It doesn't matter that you have the complete Manhattan Project working there, homeopathy is still not science.

Well, I see more creativity currently from the House of Ideas than I do from the Distinguished Competition.

They've been going outside of traditional circles and hiring guys like Brian Clevinger (Atomic Robo, 8-Bit Theater) and Chris Hastings (Dr. McNinja) to write comics for them. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if they went and hired the kid who writes Axe Cop to do a story, and that would be THE GREATEST COMIC EVER.


Actually, I'd rather not see Ethan Nicolle take on more work. I was one of the people who put money down to appear in Bearmageddon as an extra. That was several months ago, and the story still hasn't gotten to a place where extras would be showing up. I think he has good intentions, but he should really cover his current commitments first.

Edit: I know that Malachai is the writer for Axe Cop, but I'm pretty sure that child labor laws mean that he'd be working through a partnership with his brother.
