I believe when you pick a creative team, you have to let them run — if not, then why did you pick them. The DC thing was just awesome to experience up close and personal. Even with all the leaks from others and all the commentary, even from me, you have NO IDEA how crazy it was. Changes on a 24-hour basis because the corporate directive or the editorial directive woke up in the middle of the night and decided they saw a rainbow. Or a unicorn. Just crazy. And at this point, there’s enough out there that you can’t just write it off or dismiss it. And here’s the deal, I LIKE THOSE PEOPLE. I don’t wish any of them ill. My whack editor is gone, but the rest of them are decent, they are just running a crazy house. It was great fun while it lasted, but I had to get out before the cuckoo-birds laid eggs in my head.
Just imagine what he’d say if he didn’t like those people.
Also, I hadn’t realized that the Extreme relaunch books will soon consist of Brandon Graham’s Prophet and two books written (and one drawn) by Liefeld himself. When you pick a creative team, you have to let them run off the book entirely when you want to do the book yourself, it seems.
