June 1967 (w/Matt Fraction) - "To Die a Hero!"
Matt Fraction is a mostly unemployed comic book writer, now that Sex Criminals and Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen have both wrapped up. The final volume of his and Elsa Charretier's noir crime comic, November, comes out in early 2021. And then what's he going to do with himself? We're not worried, exactly, maybe just a little concerned. Watch this space for a GoFundMe or something.
