"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.

That, and Joe Quesada has always said that Black Panther was one of his favorite characters (BP along with Daredevil). And that he once said that he felt that it was important for a comic like the Black Panther to be on the stands.

But you are right, and I had no idea that Priest broke him in. I knew Joe Quesada worked on The Ray with him as the artist, and Priest as the editor (http://www.digital-priest.com/comics/the_ray.htm), but I didn't know it extended any further than that.

Small world, comics.

I saw that Joe Quesada mentioned The Truth as being a disappointment that it didn't catch on more. I agree. We got the Patroit out of it though, and Josiah X. (Josiah X in limbo, but it's not too late to do something with him... )
