Gibizada - blog Screenwriters' Summit Team Fortress 2 The Club Manager by Dave Morrison Share His office is above the stage behind a thick scarred wooden door a desk piled high with bills, receipts a small safe bolted to the floor Envious friends say "Man, how sweet to be the guy behind the Scene!" He puts aside the payroll page – it's time to fix the ice machine. The overhead is suffocating; electric, rent, insurance, beer the mobbed-up dumpster, glassware, liquor mics / cables / amps / repair advertising, ASCAP sticker bar staff, wait staff, bouncers, sound (the owner talks of relocating – he might as well just burn it down) Bands talk of blood and sweat and tears they want more money, better dates He knows that if they don't sell drinks there's no point to unlock the grates Sometimes, worn-out, alone, he thinks ‘I'm through, I can't last one more week' but reconsiders when he hears cheers, clapping, whistles, stamping feet.

By Tim Janson June 03, 2009 Top 20 Comic Writers of All Time© Mania After writing articles on the greatest Sci-Fi, Horror, and Fantasy writers, it’s time to turn our attention to the 20 greatest comic book writers of all-time.
