Well, maybe not a thousand, but 83 characters and 16 teams sure gets you a lot.
Kurt Busiek has posted on his blog a comprehensive list of all the characters he has created or co-created, apparently as a new accounting process for Marvel. The craziest part of all this — this doesn’t include Astro City, or any of the characters Busiek has made for DC or elsewhere. This is 100% Marvel — such as Phil Sheldon, the man holding the camera in the above cover of Marvels.
Considering the guy is a continuity whiz — take a look at last year’s DC weekly Trinity if you don’t believe me — it’s an interesting and amusing read. Click here to check it all out.
