Do I think he's doing a better job than Dan Didio? Yes I do, but alot of the bold chances he's taking don't seem to working out for him like before.
The Ultimate line, MK Imprint, storylines, signing of creators (actually, he seems to not be on the same level with alot of them (JMS, Morrison etc.) don't seem to be working out as best as they could.
In short, i think the honeymoon with Quesada is over and he's done a terrific job at marvel, one of the best EIC's in my opinion but he's not doing anything revolutionary anymore. I believe he will stiill be EIC at Marvel for awhile though.
i BELIEVE firmly he's been the best Editor In Chief MARVEL has ever had post-Stan Lee.
for someone who inherited the company in the troubled waters he did... damn. he sure made that puppy shine.
yes, i believe his past success will allow him (deservedly so) to keep his position for some long years to come, maybe even having a second coming of sorts later on... but right now i do believe he's in his worst moment. the decline has started and it's kinda showing. there's a certain ammount of "exhaustion" that has become noticeable in his interviews and on the way he promotes and hypes certain material.
MARVEL and the industry at large wouldn't have this kind of health if it wasn't for his timely decision-making and risk-taking.
(even if he simply took the BEST from Karen Berger's playbook)
