Gerry Conway back at DC Comics

After leaving the world of comics behind in the 1990's for a career in Hollywood writing for the likes of "Diagnosis: Murder" and "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," Gerry Conway is back visiting his old stomping grounds:
Animal Man R.I.P.? Gerry Conway Talks (Comic Book Resources)

I have fond childhood memories of Conway-written comics. In the '70s and '80s, he shaped the adventures of many popular characters, including Iron Man, Spider-Man, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Tarzan, Fantastic Four, Justice League of America, The Avengers, Swamp Thing, and Firestorm. (Not to mention writing the groundbreaking crossover Superman Vs. The Amazing Spider-Man!)
