Scanning through the thread, but had to say I agree with every word of this and it's been sad to see who used to be one of my favorite writers go more and more in this direction. It's not dislike so much as mourning in my case. For when he was a great comics writer before it all seemed to go to his head.
I think that's the worst part of it. He started out with so much promise but got into lazy habits and let his work slide. The Authority was good, Swamp Thing was great and up until the Gambit issues of UXM (when he took a break) he was putting out great stuff at Marvel. Now nothing but dreck.
