A while ago, everyone linked to an interview with Marvel editor Tom Brevoort in which he told many insider stories, including one about Steve Gerber that was not very flattering to the latter. Well, Gerber
recently responded to the tale at his blog, and he’s pretty gracious about it.
About 98% of what Tom says in this interview is accurate. The other two percent look different from his point of view than from mine, but I fully understand why he interprets my actions the way he does.
I hope he won’t consider the following a “nonapology apology”:
Tom, I am genuinely sorry for having put a very talented editor and a very nice guy — i.e., you — in a very difficult position.
