> 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

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.

Yeah, but Quesada still dumped Priest and then he picked Hudlin over Priest to write Black Panther. Imagine if the roles where reversed and Priest decided to dump Quesada efter Quesada made several blunders(Which he has.) as editor-in-chief for years and picks Hudlin over Quesada to take over Quesada's job. Just about everyone would be outraged at Priest for doing this and angry for picking Hudlin over Quesada. A similar thing like this to happened to Priest, except Priest was not to blame for Black Panther's sale numbers which overall where not bad for a new comic book series.
