What happens when you put eight of Image Comics' top writers in one room? Well, let's just say hilarity ensues. Watch in this Image Expo clip snatched in media res from this Saturday's panel, "Stories and Scripts: Writing Comics."
From left to right: Richard Starkings (Elephantmen), Nick Spencer (Morning Glories), Jonathan Hickman (The Manhattan Project), John Layman (Chew), Joe Casey (Butcher Baker), Steven T. Seagle (The Re[a]d Diary), Ed Brubaker (Fatale), and Brian K. Vaughan (Saga).
If you inspect closely, you might just spot Vaughan sporting a gruesome looking black eye. Not to worry fans; the Oakland Occupy protesters had nothing to do with this abrasion. Vaughan claims a coughing fit last night caused a burst blood vessel. But that's not stopping him from spreading the rumor that Kirkman decked him a good one!
