Obsession and cliche comic book fans go together like peanut butter and jelly. I like well done comics and I will admit nostalgia seems to keep my preference on books from the 60's through 80's. But I have never been so obsessed as to look for and convince myself that I have found a 40 year old, deep state like coverup in comic books. I suppose if you are determined to find dirt on any subject you will find it.

Imagine if Chris had left! Altho, perhaps best not to. Looking at my first few months on FF one can easily see that my writing “style” was heavily influenced by CC. Had I begun writing the X-Men’s adventures, it might well have read as parody.

My issue with the guy on FB is his presentation. If he had come along and said he had some interesting stuff to show from a historical perspective that would be one thing.

His entire presentation is to prove that JB has been lying for 30+ years as some sort of "gotcha" moment and I find all the attention he's getting really obnoxious.

Personally, I'm always going to go with the person who actually participated in the events as they happened as opposed to some dude halfway across the globe who wasn't directly involved in the original process.

This seems an odd quest, if that’s what it is. I’ve been telling the same version of the facts since 1980, and if anyone had a problem with my tale—Shooter or Chris, for instance—they’d surely have expressed them long before now.

Sign of the times that something this well-established is receiving an
Orwellian-style "truther" campaign.

I blame comics! For several generations we have been training our readers not to accept anything at face value. From the Alan Moore "Everything you know is a lie" approach, to my own "Things are not always as they seem," we've conditioned the less mentally adept in our audience to seek subplots within subplots!

I admit I do like reading about the behind the scenes history about your work on the X-Men but the reality is, it doesn't change what was published. 

I am curious about something. I do remember you talking about doing an X-Men graphic novel but was there ever an actual story in mind?

Well that's interesting, because our FB poster has made the claim, DAYS OF FUTURE PAST was originally intended as the graphic novel story -- that's why it doesn't appear on this list:


And what about the Wendigo story? That's not on the list

Well, I think the Wendigo story would be covered by

Apr 135 - Split-up 1/ Wolverine-Nightcrawler

Nope, DoFP does not have a secret life as an aborted graphic novel. I plotted it as a two part comic book story.
