Cryptic Hires John Layman

Cryptic Studios, the makers of the City of Heroes and Villains games as well as the developers of the upcomming Marvel Universe, have announced that they have hired veteran comic book writer John Layman.

California-based MMO developer Cryptic Studios (City of Heroes, Marvel Universe Online) has announced the hiring of veteran comic book and video game writer John Layman as the company's new design writer.

Layman joined the company on June 25, and is currently working on Cryptic Studios' previously announced Marvel Universe Online, a new MMO set in the Marvel Comics universe. The game is currently in development for both the PC and Xbox 360.

Primarily a writer for Marvel Comics on titles such as Gambit, House of M: Fantastic Four, and Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness, Layman has also written for more independent studios such as Image Comics and Oni Press (Stephen Colbert's Tek Jansen of Alpha Squad 7). Beyond his comic book credits, Layman also contributed writing to Nintendo's Metroid Prime: Hunters for the Nintendo DS, and Konami's Marvel Trading Card Game for the PSP.
