So in the wee hours of Aug 3, Nick Spencer tweeted:
Who’s Nick Spencer? Oh, just the creator of Eisner nominee Morning Glories and Bedlam for Image Comics, and more recently known for his work at Marvel Comics on Superior Foes of Spider-Man, Ant-Man and Captain America: Sam Wilson.
Oh, and you might also know him as the guy that created the biggest Marvel Comics uproar since Steve Rogers was killed in the aftermath of Civil War back in 2007. The brains behind Steve Rogers saying “Hail Hydra” at the end of Captain America: Steve Rogers earlier this year.
Yep, that Nick Spencer.
While ReedPOP Singapore, the organisers behind the annual Singapore Toy, Game and Comic Convention (STGCC), have yet to officially announce his participation in this year’s event, they did bring up this teaser earlier this week:
Now, STGCC 2016 already has announced big name comic book guests Stephanie Hans, Phil Noto, Brooke Allen, Jacob Chabot, Hwei Lin and Emma Rios. However, it cannot be denied that Nick Spencer definitely represents one of the top creators at Marvel Comics today, and with the first arc of Captain America: Steve Rogers still ongoing (it’s currently only at #3), having Spencer join the guest line-up is a huge coup for ReedPOP and STGCC.
And Spencer’s not the only writer announced – Tom Taylor, he of All-New Wolverine and Injustice fame, will also be gracing our shores. He’s also the co-creator, lead writer and executive producer of animated series The Deep, now screening on Netflix and based on his graphic novels of the same name.
And if you’re a fan of Overwatch – the “game” is back in STGCC with the STGCC eSports Mountain Dew Cup, with a total prize pool of more than S$7,500.
