Peter Parker is back! (Not from the dead, but we get an ASM story again!)
Barry Allen makes his debut!
Quantum accepts a dangerous mission at his day job but then remembers he needs to Klang with Woody every 24 hours. It's not as dirty as it sounds.
I love walking dead but he is a douchebag and a homophobe in person
I got a theory about Rob, he has to have blackmail on a bunch of people cause how else could he possibly still get work.
Kirkman is a homophobe? :[
Why Stan Lee and Ashley Wood?
@Icon: yep sadly, four or five years back at WWLA he and I were talking about having a signing at the store I ran and he started making hateful comments about my sexuality/appearance and laughing about it and pointing it out to anyone in earshot, didn't end well.
I saw the first person on this list and I knew I liked it already but not sure about some of the others
what's wrong with Busiek?
@aztek_the_lost: Busiek is a diva, if you don't approach him right he is a douchebag, I first met him when Astro City first came out and I saw him at SDCC and I was young and stupid and didn't approach him correctly and it didn't go well.
@pikahyper: so this list is a mix of people you can't stand as people and ones you can't stand as actual creators? I don't meet creators myself so I just like/dislike them based on their work for the most part...though I suspect most I wouldn't want to meet in person
@aztek_the_lost: ya pretty much a mix, Busiek is both though, I don't know what happened to Busiek's talent but it waved goodbye a long time ago.
Busiek, Liefeld and Stan Lee are both. Kirkman is just cause he is a homophobe, I love most of his work. Wood, Templesmith and Byrne are purely creative since I haven't met them.
@pikahyper: I always thought Templesmith seemed like a good guy, he used to post on ComicVine but it was mostly just blogs that I assume he posted on other sites too...I love Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse though...
and how long ago are we talking with Busiek? I was excited to read Astro City...are you suggesting that's bad?
@aztek_the_lost: Templesmith does seem like a good guy but I really can't stand his art and I've always felt that a lot of his projects (and Ashley Woods) could have been so much better if they had been done by other people.
Most of Busieks work up and into the 90's was good especially the original Astro City stuff but after the 90's blegh, all the Astro City spin-offs were just so dull and boring, his work on Conan has been really good but stuff like JLA/Avengers and his Avengers work are just blegh.
I love how you and I both think Stan Lee should be #1 on any list like this. He is my #1 too!
@Silkcuts: lol, that pic of him says it all :P
Thanks for all the recommendations :D
How can you NOT like Stan Lee?
He was a great man, I'll always be appreciative of what he has done for the industry in the past but pretty much everything he has done in the past 10-12 years has been cr@p and it just diminishes how great he was. It also annoys me that we continue to loose so many great creators yet he is still alive and kicking and shilling.
Stan Lee? Come on really? The other options are fine but what Stan Lee's done for the business is influential! And if you mean lose creators by passing away, I don't know what it is that keeps him alive but I'm damn glad of it! I know you may not think he's done much but he's doing plenty in adapting comics to other media! That's the work he's been doing and I can't believe he's on this list! He doesn't deserve to be in my eyes. And I've met the guy and he's a really nice person to talk to!
Why is Stan Lee number 1? Is he a a**hole in person or something?
And Robert Kirkman is a homophobe? Nooooo! *puts fingers in ears* Lalalalala
