Overall, though, these concerns make up about 5 percent of the job anymore. Editing has changed a lot in my 12 years doing it.
Beyond that is marketing and production concerns as well.
Basically there's drama everyday, but it's not like this is work where lives depend on it. I try not to get too stressed out about it all. Mostly it's fun, just very busy. I'm just excited that coming up this week I have my only week this year without several books going out, so I'm hoping to catch up.
Back to ruining your childhoods!
What Wolverine has the writer chosen to put into the story?

Either way, they don't worry me that much. If they're enough to bug you, I'm afraid most of our comics since 1961 have been unacceptable.
Stephen, do you miss working for D.C.? Also I notice that sometimes you don't answer the Spidey letters page, but someone named "Ellie Pyle" does. Any reason for this? Also will there be any additions to back issues of Spidey on the comixology app?

I do appreciate tolworthy's post though (#23), and I thank him for the link to his blog - http://enterthestory.com/comics/comics.html
I checked several articles already and I found the FF analysis just brilliant ( http://enterthestory.com/comics/ff_end.html ), especially the part about Walt Simonson's run. It is a fine description not only of the book, but of Marvel editorial policy in general. Kudos!

You know, a lot of people here are saying that Marvel was better in the '60s and '70s. Earlier in the thread, one of those same people said they left DC because Didio and his ilk want comics to be like the way they were when they were kids. Well, aren't you doing the same thing?
