Marvel Editorial Simulation Blog

For those of you interested in watching me crash and burn in Tom Brevoort's Marvel Editorial Simulation (that's a new link with Tom's ground rules, BTW), fellow sucker-for-humiliation Philip Schaeffer has set up a blog specifically for us editors. I'll likely post information/thoughts/discussion in both places, if you're interested, but any final decisions I make will be show up on Tom's blog if you just want to get the general overview.

The good news is that, so far, all of the editors have been pretty friendly towards each other and are all looking forward to working together. The oh-this-is-bound-to-cause-friction news is that one of us (yet to be named) will not be a regular editor, but the editor-in-chief.

If nothing else, this is going be interesting!

I've so been tempted to comment on that blog, Sean! Really quite interesting...as an old comics guy like yourself, a lot of my fantasies of being EIC revolve around just tossing out everything I haven't liked about recent comics...but, you can't really do that, can you? In practice, the new Marvel has fans, and some of the fans are editors and (no doubt) creators, for whom the status quo is their preferred jumping-off point. Sort of an intriguing balancing act to do there, then!

I have no doubt I will comment, at some point...but, gonna wait until I have something to say that isn't just blather.
