I loved his Thor run, and infinitely prefer it to the book's current direction. HOWEVAH...
The minute a comic book company asks him to spin his vision for the book into a crossover event (which is kind of one every 12 months or so), he gets pissed off and walks. Happened with Thor leading to "Siege", and it happened with Superman at DC. Love the guy as a writer, but putting him on a running title in a mainstream universe at this point doesn't seem like something he'd want to do. The normal business practice of having to tie into the rest of that universe at the big two is going to be an issue he'll have to deal with, and there's a pattern now showing he doesn't want to.
That's the vibe I'm getting, at least.

I'm another petitioner for having Gillen back (if anything).

If he ever does anything at marvel again, he probably should consider just out of continuity mini's... or maybe something in the Ultimate Universe. Squadrom Supreme was perfect because he literally had the entire sandbox all to himself.
'The marquis. Well, you know, to be honest, he seems a little bit dodgy to me.'
'Mm,' she agreed. 'He's a little bit dodgy in the same way that rats are a little bit covered in fur."
Honestly these don't seem like big enough issues that any competent writer should abandon a book over.
He's a petulant, pompous, and vastly overrated man-child. Nothing I have read from him warrants me wanting him to come back to this, or any title really.
There are four stages of matter. Solid. Liquid. Gas & Don't. It's science.
I am a male. Deal with it.
