Omit Quesada's latest writing effort from pull-lists

Robot 6 has a short entry about a miniseries Joe Quesada is writing called O.M.I.T, which is likely intended to be the explanation nobody asked for about why Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson didn't get married in the forced changes Quesada and company made to Spidey's world. The title may even be acronym for "one moment in time".

But all he's providing is a chance for everyone to reject him as a writer just as much as an artist (indeed, I myself am not impressed with his artwork today).

And speaking of editors moonlighting as writers, last time I looked at the sales charts, I saw that when Dan DiDio took over as writer of the Outsiders, the numbers quickly stagnated to as low as 21,000 units. This shows that many store owners realize the chances of turning a buck on DiDio as a writer are close to zero. Let's hope they understand the same about Quesada, because I won't be surprised if the only visitors interested in O.M.I.T are the tumbleweeds rolling around.

Quesada's a better artist than Liefeld. I have to at least give him that. However, all I've seen of his art is one Spider-Man cover. Also, Didio's Aquaman story in the 08 CHRISTMAS Special wasn't too bad, but I haven't heard good things about his other work.

It's bad enough that the editors want to control what's going on in the stories, but now they actually want to make them. Then why did you become editors-in-chief? Do what Paul Levitz did and demote yourselves to writers.

Q-head was a pretty dang good artist back before he moved into management. Another case of somebody getting promoted beyond their capabilities.
