This makes me really sad to hear this.

Priest made Joe Quesada's career when things where bad for Joe Quesada. Then in return Joe Quesada dumps Priest and picks Reginald Hudlin to destroy the Black Panther's name, it is a real shame.

During Priest's run Black Panther was the most important character in Marvel Comics. Now, Black Panther has been relegated back to just being a supporting guest star that does nothing of importance.

That's completely unfair -- Quesada kept Priest's Black Panther on the shelf for years despite its borderline sales figures, and he even pressed to keep Priest on the book after #49 when Priest himself suggested that he might not be the right guy for the new direction.

We can quibble about whether Marvel pushed the book enough while Priest was on board, but you can't say that Quesada dumped Priest, or that he didn't give the book a more than fair shot during Priest's tenure.
