Хорошие комиксы vs. куча г-вна с одинаковым сюжетом

Почему Стражински бросает Тора
Ну очевидно же, просто нужно читать интервью:
When I announced that I was no longer exclusive to Marvel, there were a lot of folks suddenly coming around and offering work. What I didn't want was to get into a situation where I'd have to be fighting continuity or Big Event Books. That, for me, was a lot of the problem I'd run into previously. You'd be working on a book, it would start to find its direction, then suddenly it's pulled off into this Big Event, and now the book you're writing isn't the book you're writing anymore. It's a subset of the Big Event. And sometimes that requires doing things to characters that may be counter-intuitive.
See, it's my view that a Big Event should be in service to the individual titles, not the other way around. In other words, the BE serves as something of a sampler platter for characters who you might not otherwise read. You read the BE, find Character X interesting, then go and check out his or her book. Now it seems like the tide flows the other way, with the titles bent in service to the Big Event in ways that may actually reduce accessibility to or interest in that character for new readers.
That's it, folks! Enjoy your Dork Reign.
