Actual female comic book writer and Marvel’s version of Gail Simone, Marjorie Liu, finally showed some cracks in her judgment this morning when she praised universally panned Thunderbolts by Daniel Way as “neck and neck with Saga” in terms of quality.
There is no joke here, this actually happened:
Got a full preview of Thunderbolts #5 by @danielkway, and once again it sits at the top as my favorite book, neck and neck with Saga.— Marjorie Liu (@marjoriemliu) February 8, 2013
Thunderbolts, a book so bad even Newsarama couldn’t fellate it, might seem like an odd choice for a celebrated writer to put at the top of her reading list, and that's because it is! This revelation does not diminish Liu’s work, but does call into question her tastes and influences, and this writer is concerned about the quality of her work moving forward if Way’s Thunderbolts is a comic she will eventually emulate.
All that being said, you should be reading Astonishing X-Men, it’s damn good.
