Quote:He was also screwed over in the 90s by Marvel, and the 80s by DC.
Quote:As I stated above... or maybe below... he told me at a show that his then new autobiographical/art book described why he would never work for Marvel again.
Quote:I didn't buy the book since it was expensive, and I short on funds at the time. It has since sky-rocketed in price.
Quote:Anyway in a recent interview, he said he thought the change in editorial staff would fix the problem, but it hasn't. I wonder if it is systemic, or connected Quesada... who I believe still has contact with Brevoort.
Even though I always complain about how formulaic Starlin's recent stuff is I'd still probably blame Brevoort. I think he was the one who pushed for the recent Secret Wars story and this current era of suck. He needs to go.
Quote:That is just wondering, though. Of course the pattern is something to notice, even if it is just Marvel's bad choices as a company... which is the most likely culprit.
I think Quesada and Brevoort still control Marvel Comics behind the scenes. Considering they were responsible for helping to save the company I would be surprised if it were otherwise.
