It's been a year since Hudlin has written anything that has directly involved the rest of the Marvel Universe. I find it hard to believe Quesada when he states that he is making BP a major player, when in actuality he has kept Hudlin's writing away from anything relevant happening in the rest of Marvel.Some like his work some do not, but to say that Marvel tries to isolate his work is totally inaccurate. In fact out side of the one issue with Bendis his "new direction" with BP has been received well throughout Marvel.
And his sales numbers don't imply that BP is well received at all. When you lose 40,000 readers in a year, after all of the money and hype Marvel invested into promoting BP, than I'd assume that the level of enthusiasm towards this project is probably something other than what you claim.
I don't remember reading requests from a number of readers that ask for BP to have more solo storylines. As far as Storm in other books, there's nothing wrong with that. But if Wolverine, Spiderman and a few other characters can appear in 100 other books at the same time, then why can't Storm simultaneously appear in two books? Hudiln used Photon to help BP defeat Killmonger. Why couldn't, and shouldn't, that have been Storm?Storm taken away? Or given the people what they want more solo stories with BP and some with Storm in other books. She is involved with the Secret Invasion story line and in a blurb I read some where Marvel/Hudlin have big plans for the royal couple after secret invasion.....................see yall at issue 50.
I'll wait and see about these big plans if animated BP flops....and unless they drastically change their gameplan and direction towards something different than already displayed in the trailer, then it appears that Hudiln has a good head start towards halting his vision of BP permanently.
