I've been reading quite a few comics from "The Big Two", and they seem to like the idea of having their respective creators and offices show up from time to time - from The Bullpen being hit by cosmic rays to Superboy Prime going to Earth Prime to scare the bejeezus out of Dan Didio, it seems this particular cliché still amuses people working in comics.

What I'm trying to get at, is why not reflect that in our vast database? We already have Smiling Stan and The King as characters, and they both worked for DC and Marvel at one time or another. Why not expand that a little further, and include every comic book writer and artist that's made an actual appearance in the pages? Obviously, we'll include disclaimers reminding people that there's a difference between the publishers and the teams, but I think it'd be a good idea.

As you may have guessed, I'm keen to spearhead this idea... but at the same time, if the higher-ups on this site think it'd be a waste of time, I'll politely withdraw the suggestion.

I don't think it is a good idea, it would just be asking for abuse.

@X35: Interesting, no such DC version exists (or does it?) it was never named anyway

Isn't this something that would work better as a list?

you know I did a list once called creators in comics which collected some of the creators who had character pages. It doesn't have all of them, but I feel like I should advertise it...
