Tom Brevoort wants you to stop questioning his authority:
I said it yesterday, and I’ll say it again today: AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #546 is a good comic book. I don’t say that because I have to, I don’t say it because I’m “spinning”—I say it because, as far as I’m concerned, it’s true.
And like with any other book my office puts out, I don’t see any need to debate its merits—the proof is in the book. Again, if it wasn’t to your tastes, that’s completely okay. But I know a good comic book when I see one. And I’ll count on the readership as a whole over time to prove this out.
And I really do appreciate your concern for my reputation. But given that “Avengers: Disassembled” completely destroyed the Avengers franchise, CIVIL WAR was the worst comic book known to man and the Death of Captain America was an abomination, I think my instincts in this area are reasonably sound.
Again, your mileage may vary.
