Straczynski departing from Thor

The website of Bleeding Cool, to where Rich Johnston relocated after working at CBR (edit: the owner of Avatar made him a bigger offer to work there instead), reports that J. Michael Stracynski will be leaving the Mighty Thor in September.

That's just fine. He went along with Quesada's editorial mandate on Spider-Man showing little to no credible opposition, and made a fool of himself in the end with One More Day, when he remained at Marvel for quite awhile even afterwards. His departure is thus quite fine by me, but comes much too late to convince me that he really had any objections to Quesada destroying Spider-Man's world. And I get the feeling that under Straczynski's pen, Thor would not have appealed to me.

The bad news is that Thor will be swerving into crossover territory after this (it may be called "Siege of Asgard"). But then, that's Marvel these days.

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.
