She has earned her spot, she has been in the industry for years and has wrote most characters. And she is at the point that the has a very big following that would read anything she writes. I'll agree that there are better writers out there, but she still earned a spot in a discussion like this one.
I would say that Secret Six is much better, I love the way that Catman was handled. And she turned Bane from a monster into a relate-able character your are kinda rooting for in a odd way, and that's just scratching the surface as what she covered in that run.
It would have been really cool to see Image take this one, I mean if you look at the ratio of books that are good compared to books that suck, DC definitely doesn't win. Although DC has amazing books right now, their lower sales books are almost unreadable because the quality is very poor. Still happy Marvel isn't on top.
This looks like it could be good, I had lost faith with the X-Books but slowly they are getting me to turn around and give them a read. Lately I have not been disappointed. We discussed the Mutant World in this Issue of A Comic Book Look.
