Marvel has revealed a second class of creator with their new Marvel NOW! teaser.
Marvel has just hinted that nineties superstar artist Rob Liefeld has been promoted to Marvel's Executive Vice President In Charge of Talent Classification. The move was implied after Marvel sent out a teaser calling both Keiron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie "amateurs".
We can only presume that more lists will follow, labelling creators as either Architects, Amateurs or D-List
. We're sure that Liefeld will also be happy to point out various creators' penis sizes
as he did during his time at DC.
What's really baffling is why Gillen and McKelvie has been shunted off into the second class level of creators. Despite not being "Architects" like Brian Bendis, Matt Fraction or Jason Aaron, Gillen and McKelvie both are established creators that deserve the full respect of companies like Marvel and DC. Gillen even went as far as to back Marvel's abhorrent Cyclops characterization, all in an attempt to save Journey into Mystery, the second best title published by Marvel today.
Update: I've just been informed that this is in fact a teaser for the Gillen/McKelvie Young Avengers project. They really need to label these better before people get the wrong idea. Check it out below.
