At least I'm known for something.
Last year one of the glass ceilings in superhero comics had a batarang thrown at it when Becky Cloonan became the first woman to draw an issue of Batman. The writing side of the Batman ceiling has had a few cracks in it through the years with Devin Grayson, Louise Simonson, Ann Nocenti and Christina Weir all having stints on Batman titles. Women writing Batman books, however, are still rare and a very small percentage of the writers in the Batman-writing world. But in July another female writer will join the ranks. Marguerite Bennet will be co-writing the Batman Annual #2 with Scott Snyder. Bennett, as she discusses below, joins James Tynion IV, who is writing Talon and Red Hood, as one of Scott Snyder’s students to pick up a gig at DC.
Just stoked by the notion of Scott “a-muthafuckin’” Snyder, as your prof, being like “Yo, wanna do some Batman with me?”
I’m really looking forward to this.
