Keith Giffen Would Like To Say A Few Things

...52 of them, specifically. You can read the whole 52-item diatribe over at Wizard's web site (I know, I know).

SEE! The barely-concealed disdain for Greg Rucka!

THRILL! To the self-deprecating insights about making Montoya the Answer!

GASP! At the revelations that Giffen dosn't particularly like Steel or Lobo (or Greg Rucka)!

SMILE! At the thin veneer of courtesy with which Giffen covers his shots at Mark Waid, DC trade policies, and 52 art decisions with!

Seriously, it's fascinating stuff. I like Giffen myself, and it's refreshing to see someone who's still putting out quality work make a relatively candid list of things that he likes and dislikes about a recent mega-project.

Cranky old man, or just 52-related burnout? Dick, get on the case!

That was really cool. It's always nice to see someone in thee business that's prepared to say what he thinks.

Favorite 52 moment? Osiris eaten by Sobek. God, I hated that kid!

Giffen must be a bit of a nightmare for the big guys. I've been told that he's similarly tactless with Marvel too.

Good on him.

Giffen is a god. A funny funny god.

Nice to see one of the 52 guys shares my low opinion of Greg Rucka.

Yeah, Giffen's always been like that.

I rather read a thousand interviews with Keith Giffen than a single mindlessly dull interview with, say, Geoff Johns where they just heap undeserved plaudits on all their peers.
