Quesada Liked DC Better When Marvel Hired Him in the Late-90s


Chief Creative Office of Marvel Entertainment Joe Quesada revealed in a Twitter reply that he was a bigger fan of DC Comics when his company, Event Comics, was hired by Marvel Comics to bring to life a line of Marvel Knights comics.

Quesada explained that he was "a Marvel fan as a kid and a DC fan [as] an adult. I was all about the DC when Marvel hired my company to do Marvel, it felt weird, kinda dirty. DC was just putting out better books at then time. Then I went on to kick their asses."
