No, no -- not at all. I didn't give that Jim Shooter quote a second look. I just don't believe that "hot" writers and quality writers are mutually exclusive.
I do believe there are two different readers out there -- those that read for the characters and those that read for the creators, and I probably fall into the latter group. But, there are books whose characters I like too much to drop -- Birds of Prey, Teen Titans, Nightwing (pre-Tomasi), Outsiders, and Robin just to name a few.
I want DC to produce good books, which was one reason I was so upset they let Jason Aaron go -- I'd rather see him on Robin, JLA, Superman, Outsiders because those are all books I read that could use some life.
