"Asked about he broke into comics, Quesada said that he was the “luckiest son of a bitch in comics,” and that he persistently asked then-DC editor Jim Owsley (the current Christopher Priest) for work, and the timing was right that he was able to get some work on their licensed Dungeons & Dragons comic."- http://forum.newsarama.com/showthread.php?t=116636
Man no wonder Quesada seemed to show so much support for Priest and by extension Black PAnther. Just think. If Priest gave Quesada the cold sholder all those years ago, we would probably never have seen a monumental BLack Panther run nor Black Panther prominence today. No BP involvement in any events. No BP in FF4. No BP in World War Hulk. Nothing. And Priest would have probably left comics a whole lot sooner as well.
