"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.

You know, the Priest or Hudlin argument has been done to death. I don't like Hudlin's take on Panther, so I don't buy it. I liked Priest's take, and I bought it. I'm sure Hudlin is a talented man, you don't get to his position without effort and ability. I just don't like the direction he has taken this character. By the way, I'm not a huge Quesada fan either, but the guy has his moments. What I'm trying to say is this--We can argue all day about why Priest's run was shorter than some of us wanted, and we can argue all day about whether or not Hudlin's run is what we like, but we can't change history. Someday Hudlin will no longer write Panther. That is simply the truth. Who knows what will happen then that we "like" or "dislike"?

Ah well, it is America, and we do have opinions, don't we?
