  1. I’d be curious to know how Liefield reconciles this stance of how the X-titles and Spider-Man books of this period exploded “because of them” when he takes Scott Snyder unduly to task for his and Greg Capullo’s success on Batman with his repeated assertion the success is due in much larger part to the character and not the creative team. Interesting.
