What has Jay Z got to do with this?
An EIC needs to be someone
A) with innovative ideas
B) creator friendly
C) knows what sells
D) takes risks
A & D) -- speaking in terms of pushing the medium, is out in front of the digital movement with his Thrillbent stuff.
B) has handled numerous creators as an EiC before, at BOOM for 3 years.
C) has written everything from Archie to Kingdom Come (one of the highest-selling comics of all time), including high-selling and award-winning runs on Capt. America, FF, Flash, JLA, Daredevil, 52, etc.
D) going to BOOM was quite a risk. Thrillbent is quite a risk
plus the EiC experience factor. any other citeria you want to make up that practically no one currently in comics EXCEPT Waid can meet?
