But I have read comics for 30 years and seen a lot of things. Simonsons run on Thor [which I often refer to] was a good story and sold well. Peter Davids Hulk run felt the same. Loved it. I also liked what he was doing on Star Trek back in the 80s and 90s but that was canned. I have no idea why.
Sometimes what I think is good work gets cancelled and less good work goes on and on and even flourishes. Any Firefly fan knows that. But ultimately you need to make money to keep a book being published, unless you want to post it online for free. Which is perfectly fine. Its not a problem at the moment because Azzarello has enough people buying what he is selling.
