Rather than pontificating this post, I found an interesting article with a very pointed take on current comics, particularly Marvel.

Former Marvel Editor-In-Chief Jim Shooter Eviscerates the Current State of Marvel Comics!

Since this topic usually elicits strong feelings I am going to let Jim Shooter speak, and I am going to listen to your comments!

This comes from a site I have never heard of called Bounding into Comics, but am planning on following now. (Editor’s note: they pull quotes and discuss this interview, which is worth reading in its entirety from the source).
