    I notice Swishy is banned. I think we can all accept that as a good thing, right? Let's try to agree on that one thing at least.

    What 'connotation' is your fevered with hate mind trying to add to it? They plainly said EXACTLY what I said. You'd whine if I posted the sky is blue.

    Yes, Bob. I clearly imagined you trying to imply titles were dropping like flies. Whatever was I thinking?

    ...Let him speak, honeybunch. He'll lay out more than enough rope to hang himself once again. And maybe this time Joe'll remember to slap the horse on the rump so the whole process of hanging actually works this time.

    Well, here's a couple of numbers for you straight from PJP's beloved Comichron.

    In Dec., JL 'sold' 142,248 and in May, 131,332.
    In Dec., Action 'sold' 112,839 and in May, 88,796.
    In Dec., GL 'sold' 104,199 and in May, 87,601.
    In Dec., Green Arrow 'sold' 33,404 and in May, 26,966.
    In Dec., Grifter 'sold' 20,237 and in May, 15,228.
    In Dec., I, Vampire 'sold' 19,441 and in May, 17,175.
    In Dec., Blue Beetle 'sold' 19,267 and in May, 16,607.

    Pretty much every title without a crossover keeps slipping well after the books should have showed signs of leveling.
    You'd think a real retailer would know that every periodical suffers from a loss of diminishing returns due to attrition on other factors.

    I believe Kirby (as per his TCJ interview) when he states Lee abused his position to get bylines: Jack Kirby Interview | The Comics Journal

    Jack outright states Lee takes far, far too much credit for the FF: IE any, beyond dialogue.

    Stan Lee has never been fit to lick Jack Kirby's boots, and the King was pretty obviously the conceptual powerhouse behind those comics: Kirby and Lee, and that's insanely generous to the old hack. Jack went on to do New Gods: Stan did... Ravager 2099?

    There's a very good description from Romita on Stan and Jack's process from when he witnessed it, that suggests that the truth, as always, is somewhere in the middle.
    I've seen Romita JR (who I admire) state the same. Do you really think anyone inside of the Marvel circle is going to talk shit about Stan Lee? He's the Marvel Pope.

    Writing dialogue (which Lee was effortlessly terrible at) is not the same as creating (which Lee has gone on to prove he is effortlessly terrible at).
    defchild likes this.

    yeah, he self-confesses he was lazy too. He does tend to down play his role, whether through honesty or modesty I couldn't say.
