Marvel Scores A New Exclusive Writer?

At the Emerald City Comic Con today, Marvel brought out their newest exclusive talent. Nick Spencer, writer of the newly launched Iron Man 2.0, as well as set to take over Secret Avengers from Ed Brubaker, is now exclusive to Marvel. The question that immediately comes to mind though, as with any exclusive talent, is what about his creator owned work, or the books he was handling for DC? When he was announced as leaving Supergirl after a single issue, I figured the Marvel exclusive was coming up quick, but what does this mean for T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents? Spencer thankfully went on Twitter and explained it all.

All right, so, today’s big news, in case you haven’t seen it yet: proud and happy to say I’ve signed an exclusive at Marvel!

Wanna get the first big thing out of the way- this does NOT affect my creator-owned work, or even my work on T.H.U.N.D.E.R. AGENTS.

My deal also leaves me plenty of room to do more creator-owned work in the future, too. This wasn’t about cutting that stuff off–

This was about getting to part of a team, and cheesy as it may sound, a family. I wanted this deal because it’s a chance to work in (cont’d)

the same room as a lot of the writers I respect and admire the most-guys like @JHickman @BRIANMBENDIS @brubaker @kierongillen, etc. (cont’d)

Can’t wait to tell great stories together with those guys.

And really big thanks to @CBCebulski and everyone at Marvel for making this happen. Dream come true.
