Joe Quesada has commented on the departure of his long-time Marvel colleague Brian Michael Bendis to DC. In a series of tweets, the Marvel CCO (and former E-i-C) spoke to his 18-year friendship and collaboration as editor, executive, and artist.
"I want to thank [Brian Michael Bendis] for all the years of hard work, creativity and more importantly friendship," tweeted Quesada. "During my time as EIC we had a lot of fun, rattled a lot of cages & made what I hope will be viewed in retrospect by fans as some fun comics. While I will undoubtedly miss having him at Marvel I want to congratulate Bri on his upcoming gig at DC and wish him nothing but success. As a fan the change of corner box will not dampen my desire to read whatever he does next and look forward to his upcoming projects.
"And for the Marvel faithful, while this kind of news can seem like a gut punch it's all good and stay tuned," Quesada continued. "We have some big things coming your way as well as some surprises up our sleeves. 2018 is going to be great year to be a comic book fan so strap in kids it's gonna be a hell of a ride and I don't want you falling out."
