There are two types of comic writers.
Creators, who build up worlds and create lots of characters and relationships.
Destroyers, who take the established characters and either kill off most of the cast or destroy most things associated with the book. Usually leave a book when they just run out of things to do.
It’s just really strange how I’ve been observing this trend. You got Academy X New X-Men followed by Craig and Yost’s New X-Men, which killed almost the entire cast and blew up the coffee shop and then left the book open ended cause hey, at least they got X-23 popular. Or Bendis who started his Avengers run by blowing up the mansion and killing most the Avengers, but he puts Spider-Man and Wolverine on the team, so it’s okay. Or Dennis Hopeless with Avengers Arena (Granted he was told by editorial to do this).
Is it just me, or is the biggest way to get popular as a writer to just kill off what the guy before you has created?
