John remains bitter to this day because of this

Did any souls here read about this too?
I didn't hear about that but I do have the first appearance of Hellboy in Next Men #21

Not to go off-topic too much, but why is a Chris Claremont paid not to write?

from what I read online is that Chris Claremont is under some type of contract with Marvel but part of the contract is that he cannot write for other companies. In the meantime, Marvel does not give him many writing assignments.

Oh ok. And what’s the scoop with McFarlane making Byrne out to be a klansman? Was that that early issue, # 30? What’s the story on that?

never heard that - yikes. It does sound like the catfighting amongst some comic book creators would put any Dynasty-soap opera-Real Housewives catfight to shame

back to Chris, I wish he was still writing today. He might still have an old school style but when he wrote a book, it was not a quick read. Also, he was one writer who I thought really could write a female character with incredible depth.

Yes, it was Spawn #30. In an interview for a special issue of Wizard Magazine McFarlane admitted two KKK characters were based on Peter David and John Byrne. I still have that issue of Wizard in a box somewhere.
