He just is. Nobody I have ever heard has a bad word to say about Walt. He’s one of those people that is supremely talented and just a great guy. Bendis will tell you he owes his entire career to him as he’s the only pro that went over his ideas and portfolio to no benefit to himself.
Oliver Selby, ex of this parish, started a Facebook group for Walt Simonson and he updates and engages all the time, he’s awesome.
