Comic creators in midwest

The Columbia Missourian has an article about comic book writers living and working in the midwestern US. The thing is, it's about Marvel contributors, but not ones that I'm particularly fond of, such as editor Axel Alonso. And then, there's what one of the writers says about Matt Fraction:
“We’ve all sort of entered the business on our own terms,” Moore said. “I was doing (and still do) creator-owned work. Matt Fraction did his own thing. And Fraction’s books for Marvel don’t read like Marvel books; they read like indie books almost. Jason Aaron’s entrance was two Vertigo books that he created, “Scalped” and “The Other Side,” and now he’s doing ‘Wolverine’ and some other things. But they have a distinct, separate sensibility from mainstream comics.
That could actually be a problem, most certainly the way Fraction wrote the new Punisher volume during Civil War is; exactly what's not mentioned here. If Fraction's work doesn't read like Marvel, I'd say that's bad news.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
