Nick Spencer is a comic book writer known for his creator-owned titles at Image Comics. While in college, Nick wrote three pitches to Marvel Comics soon after the Marvel Knights imprint launched in 1998. According to Spencer, ‘Joe [Quesada] didn’t like the first two but the third one was a Black Cat pitch that was a Jackie Brown kind of Tarantino-esque thing. He said he liked that one but they weren’t going to do anything with anybody new at the time.’ Nick went on to work in other fields, including politics and music, before he successfully pitched Existence 2.0 to Jim Valentino of Image Comics. The first issue was released in July 2009. Nick has also written THE INFINITE VACATION, ULTIMATE COMICS X-MEN, CLOAK & DAGGER, VICTOR VON DOOM, T.H.U.N.D.E.R. AGENTS and THIEF OF THIEVES.
