Jonathan Morel - Writer-in-Residence

As we round out his stint, many thanks must go to Luke Babad for gracing us with his lovely words and ideas.  Was a pleasure to have you round these parts.

And I must say that it is an equally great pleasure to have Jonathan Morel, our next guest, swooping in to spend some time amongst our roost.  I've known Jon a good long while, and he is one of the most intelligent people I know when it comes to dissecting narrative.  Whether it's film, television, comics, or anything else, Jon often hones right in on what's working, but more importantly why it's working.

I've had many a conversation with him on favourite series, episodes, issues, and the like, and he's always bringing in thoughts and ideas that I hadn't considered before.  It's for these reasons (and many more) that he's one of my trusted extra sets of eyes when I'm working on an important script and want to make sure it lands just right.

For all that, Jon hasn't necessarily spent much time scripting his own pieces, whether in comics or any other medium (although he is one hell of a Dungeon Master), so I decided to force him to do so by asking him to join up as our latest Writer-in-Residence.  To my delight, he has agreed, and I must say that I am excited to see what he comes up with.

Thanks for coming by, Jon.  We're pleased to have you with us for the coming fortnight.
