From this week’s Cup O’ Joe Column on CBR:
Jonah Weiland: I think it was Tom Brevoort who was talking on a blog post or on Twitter about how he was pretty sure “Siege” would destroy “Blackest Night.” Would you go along with that take?
Joe Quesada: [Laughs] Yes. Absolutely! But let me say for the record that I do not read Tom’s blog or anything Tom is attached to. He’s a loathsome individual, and I just do not like him very much. And anyone who knows Tom Brevoort I’m sure would agree with me. [Laughter].
Now for this week’s question:
Do you think that The Siege will in fact “destroy” Blackest Night?
I’m aware that the above quote by Tom Brevoort was most likely made in jest but I am thinking that Joey Q is laughing because he knows deep down that The Siege is the same boring Bendis written nonsense that will not stand a chance against Blackest Night. I could be misreading that though.
My answer to this week’s question:
[Laughs] No way in hell. If anything, Blackest Night will probably destroy Marvel. [Maniacal Laughter]
