I enjoyed some of his early Spider-man and I remember enjoying Midnight Nation. I took issue with him choosing to work in that gro$$e$t of gro$$ project: Before watchmen. and him being such an adamant defender of doing work against Moore’s wishes. My pal David Brothers wrote a nice summary of the deal with that here.
I don’t really lose a lot of sleep over what he does, but I’ll happily shit all over his name if it’s brought up. I think Image could do a lot better than publishing his played out superhero ish. But there’s certainly no shortage of guys in comics who will chase a lazy dollar. They’re all welcome to eat shit or die trying. G-G-G UNIT!
Anyway, here’s a Mazinger cover because I like it.
J. Michael Strazkfjidosjakljiofjewki is traaaaaash.
To elaborate slightly on Brandon mentioning his defending of doing Before Watchmen against Moore’s wishes, let’s just remember the exact way he phrased it:
When asked how he felt about Moore getting something of a raw deal, JMS straight-up said, “People in comics have been getting screwed over since Siegel and Schuster, you’ve just gotta accept it at this point!”
Additionally, dude writes garbage comics. Dream Police #1 is the single worst comic I’ve read this year, bar none.
isn’t he responsible for One More Day aka the reason I stopped reading Amazing Spider-Man?
If you’re not watching Blue Blazes you need to fix that about yourself.
