Do you like what his editorial decisions?

Whatsayyou?!

Me: Nope. I think he should go back to drawing Daredevil (or someone) and writing Ash for Event Comics.

He's made some good calls and some bad ones. Lately it's been more bad than good though.
Quesada + Jemas? Yay!
Quesada + Buckley? Boo!
Taken as a whole though, he's been positive for Marvel, and positive for the industry.

I like some things he's done and some I don't. Ultimately, I voted no. The Spidey retcon was the deciding factor for me.

He doesn't get me hard, but overall I've liked his run at Marvel.

I think he was doing a decent job up unitl Civil War.

Since then, the Marvel Universe has been one big clusterfuck, IMO.

I used to be a hardcore Marvel fan and these days I've been losing interest more and mroe.

I voted No.

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.

He's been good for Marvel in terms of sales.

But for me as a reader, no.

I voted no.

JoeQ has been great for Marvel. His reign has lifted it out of financial trouble. But I feel that his Spidey retcon is the start of a string of bad choices. In my opinion, he has peaked and is now beginning a slow but sure decline.

QFT.

I'm losing interest in some books recently, but I thought the books were on an upswing, then holding strong, for the first 3/4 of his current tenure.

I agree with this. Things are getting stale, maybe it's time to bring in someone new in.

I'd agree that he and Jemas were good for Marvel, but as soon as Jemas got the boot, things went downhill with Buckley. I think the best marker is when Grant Morrison was put on X-Men, with Bendis on Daredevil and the rest of the good stuff happening. Once they rearranged the X-line and let Bendis and Millar do whatever the hell they wanted, it went downhill.

Not that Dan Didio and DC are any better.
SHABBA!
