Phil Hester Changes Name Due To Bleeding Cool Typo

Many other creators expected to follow suit.

Bleeding Cool, often referred to as asshole of comics journalism as a ton of shit comes out of it, is known for two things: throwing stories against the wall like spaghetti to see what sticks and typos. Chief rumormonger Rich Johnston is known for his speed in breaking a story, not his editorial capacity. Due to a headline typo in DC Adds Mark Buckingham, Steve Rude, Paul Levitz And Phil Hester To Jack Kirby Oneshots On August, where Johnston misspelled Phil Hester's name as Phil Hexter, Hester took to Twitter to announce his new name change.

If this comics thing doesn't work out, maybe a career in occult crime solving could work out.
