My Summer Lair Chapter #122: What Are You Writing Next?

Ready? Steve Orlando has written for Boom Studios, Image Comics, Dynamite Entertainment, IDW Publishing and a couple more comic book publishers. Whew!

However, he’s known for his DC Comics writing; that’s how he came into my life.

I recommend his Midnighter and his Batman/The Shadow (with another solid comic book writer: Scott Snyder!) if you wanna get started. At this time Martian Manhunter is ongoing though it’s a mini-series ending next year…be curious to see where that goes and the impact it has on the character.

He’ll also being writing Wonder Woman soon though not for the first time. To get a sense of Steve’s DC work here’s a brief list…I said brief!

Wonder Woman (Volume 5) #51 – 55
Gotham City Monsters #1 – #6
Martian Manhunter #1 – #12 (to be finished in 2020!)
Electric Warriors #1 – #6
Batman/The Shadow #1 – #6 (with Scott Snyder!)
Justice League of America (Volume 5) #0 – #29
Supergirl (Volume 7) #1 – #20
Midnighter (Volume 2) #1-#12
Midnighter and Apollo #1 – #6

Another whew! He’s done so much in a short amount of time and yet as he candidly shares in this interview…he is not an overnight success and more importantly: his comic book adventures and escapades are only heating up. Fresh! I’m In…let’s see what worlds he takes us too…
