    He was also screwed over in the 90s by Marvel, and the 80s by DC.



    Quote:
    As I stated above... or maybe below... he told me at a show that his then new autobiographical/art book described why he would never work for Marvel again.



    Quote:
    I didn't buy the book since it was expensive, and I short on funds at the time. It has since sky-rocketed in price.

    Anyway in a recent interview, he said he thought the change in editorial staff would fix the problem, but it hasn't. I wonder if it is systemic, or connected Quesada... who I believe still has contact with Brevoort.


Even though I always complain about how formulaic Starlin's recent stuff is I'd still probably blame Brevoort. I think he was the one who pushed for the recent Secret Wars story and this current era of suck. He needs to go.

    That is just wondering, though. Of course the pattern is something to notice, even if it is just Marvel's bad choices as a company... which is the most likely culprit.





I think Quesada and Brevoort still control Marvel Comics behind the scenes. Considering they were responsible for helping to save the company I would be surprised if it were otherwise.
