"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Early last year, I wrote a piece about Eric Trautmann, who, at the time, had just gotten passed over to be the new Checkmate writer (which would have made waaaay too much sense for it to actually happen).
At the time, I noted that Trautmann was looking for writing gigs and that I hoped that someone would give him a look see because he was a good writer.
Well, I’ve noticed his name has been popping up more and more lately at DC Comics, with the current JSA vs. Kobra mini-series (which I’ve quite enjoyed) that continues in the same style as his previous Checkmate work (which he co-wrote with the über-talented Greg Rucka) and more recently, the ongoing Shield series.
And now he’s going to be the new co-writer on Action Comics (with the aforementioned Rucka), possibly his biggest gig yet.
It’s great to see Trautmann’s talents not go unnoticed and it is sort of fun to look back at my post and be glad that my worries at the time were unwarranted.
