    From what I understand/remember, Jim Shooter was a VERY tough Editor-In-Chief at Marvel throughout the 1980's. He pretty much eliminated "The Dreaded Deadline Doom" that went through Marvel's books for a good part of the 1970's.


With good reason. I'll take Shooter over Quesada anyday of the decade.
You had the petty bickering between Byrne and Claremont, Bill Mantlo wanting Spider-Man to have an illegitimate child running around and other little squabbles that went beyond the call of "creativity being restrained" and actually seeing print in the stories.
More info on that kinda stuff here:

I'll take a reprint with today's production quality over a 2-3 month delay because said "big-name author" is a professed procrastinator and working on TV shows as well.
