I’ve been thinking about Marvel’s woes and how, for those of us who follow creators first, they suffered a big loss when most of the “Architects” left a couple years back for Image.
To me it seems the creators that were left were, by and large, not ready to step up to the top tier (which is not to say they are not talented).
It got me thinking that there are a lot of creators who were just below top Architect level a few years ago, who should/could have been there to step up. I’d be happy to see a new wave of books featuring the likes of:
Fred Van Lente
I know most of these guys are working elsewhere but it seems like Marvel should be able to get them back.
