Wizard’s 2006 Awards are out, and you’ll have to pick up the magazine to see all the winners, but they have released the Man of the Year, and it’s “The man known as Joe Q to friends, co-workers and Internet fans”:
It was all there—Marvel’s entire publishing plan for 2006 through 2008 in red, green, black and blue marker, stretched across the walls of the huge editorial conference in Manhattan on the last day of the January planning meeting.
A cabal of the biggest and most successful writers in comics, including Brian Michael Bendis, Mark Millar, J. Michael Straczynski and Greg Pak, sat around the large, square room filled with gray rectangular tables studying what the last few days of discussions, arguments and planning had yielded.
But as Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada reviewed the plans, something just didn’t feel right.
Dear god, how is that for suspense?
