So I've been pouring over some interviews and articles about what went down at Valiant, from as many sides as possible. I've said this before, but I wish he was still involved in comics. It seems my books would be coming in on time and the quality would be better. I know the guy is a control freak, by his own admission, but he held a high standard for everything. I know everyone has their own version of what went down at Valiant, but any way I read it, he gets the shaft. A friend and I have been debating on whether or not Bob Layton is as much of a jerk for what went down. I say he isn't and I still like the guy, I think he got in over his head but it wasn't stuff he could control.
