From screen to page: Again writing for the Plain Dealer, Michael Sangiacomo looks at film and television writers who have made the leap to comic books. Among them: Allan Heinberg, Joss Whedon, Chris Gage, Michael Straczynski, Sara "Samm" Barnes, Fiona Avery, Si Spencer, Jeph Loeb and Brad Meltzer. Here's DC's Dan DiDio:

"I'm always amazed at the number of people who have an abiding love of comics Chris Gage of Law & Order is one of them. His miniseries about the Batman villain Deadshot explores what happens when a man who has nothing to live for suddenly finds a reason to live. He learns he has children who are in danger, and it changes him."
