Doug: What are some successes and failures in your opinion? I'd offer that while the scope of Byrne's run on the FF was second only to the Lee/Kirby stories, I didn't care for his inking of his own pencils. The series would have been enhanced had Joe Sinnott provided his standard consistent look to the mag -- but I think Byrne insisted on the control. And as you'll see, we'll take a few issues with Byrne's handling of the reimagining of the Superman mythos as we go forward.
Doug: Digging deeper into this issue, is collaboration the answer when plotting a winner? Can one person succeed endlessly, or is the notion of "more cooks in the kitchen" a better recipe? Where do we see teams who caught lightning in a bottle, only to have a rift later on? As always, thanks in advance for your participation.
