    He's easily one of the best superhero writers in comics. I just wish he had a truly great, calling-card NON-SUPERHERO book to his name. I think that would really push him over the edge for me.

    Yeah, I'd like to see him broaden his horizons a bit. Potter's Field was good, but I wouldn't put it in the class of what Brubaker has done with Criminal to cite a similar genre book.

    I have no doubt that he has it in him, though, if he chooses to pursue something different. He just loves writing superheroes, and there's no doubt he's really, really good at it. Maybe his book for Legendary will be that something different a lot of us are looking for.

    No. (And I would've left it at that but it's too short.)

    Yeah, the art kind of killed it for me too. Maybe if I'd been a DD fan before Waid took over I could overlook the lousy coloring, but as it is the sheer blandness of hues is off putting. Keep watching the Previews to see if this will change soon.

    Am enjoying his Thrillbent site.

    He's in my top ten. Thought Irredeemable started out very strong but fell flat midway and ended up meh.

    Favorite writer is Peter David.

    But the distinction that I *think* Jesse is making that certain artists do "write" in the sense that they craft the sequence of events just as a writer would.

    That's a distinction that played heavily into the age-old Lee vs. Kirby debate. Lee liked to think that if he originated the idea, he was the primary writer. Kirby believed that he was primary because he formulated the basic sequence of the whole story. The truth as I see it is that the total story was the result of their synthesis.

    I like his work, especially Daredevil. Favorite or best writer? No, but he's very, very good.
    Who squeezed the Shaman?
