Hate Poll: Quesada vs. Byrne

I was going to pit Quesada against Levitz next, but in light of today's shocking events (don't click if you don't want to be spoilerized--in fact, if you suspect you haven't been despoiled yet, I'd advise that you avoid the internet altogether--INCLUDING THE REST OF THIS POST AND THE COMMENTS--until you've read whatever comics you're reading this week; you might also want to go buy your comics when the store isn't crowded; BTW, bloggers and comics fans can basically all go to hell), I've decided to bump him up to the next level.

The case against Joe Quesada: Duh. Also, I'm fairly certain he's the kind of guy who would come into your office while you're busy, sit on your desk, talk to you about hockey (or, if you actually like hockey, let's say pro wrestling), fiddle with various things on your desk, and then leave with a piece of paper stuck to his butt.

The case against John Byrne: I've got to go with "duh" again. Also, I'm fairly certain he's the kind of guy who would would come into your office while you're busy, hunker down real close like so he could look over your shoulder (perhaps with his beard brushing against your ear), tell you what's wrong with whatever it is you're doing, and then leave with a book without asking if he could borrow it.

Poll open until Friday, 11 am EST/8 am PST.

I might have a real post later today, assuming somebody says or does something interesting at some point today. Otherwise, expect either no post or a bullshit post.

I vote for Joe.

This is a tough one since Byrne's a hateful fucker, but he's also a bit of an ineffectual old crank yelling at people from his rocker on the front porch. I've got to stick with Joe purely based on the power and influence he wields, and the way he wields it. Plus, I really want him to face Levitz!

I must say, though, I don't count today's events against him. In fact, I'll go so far as to offer him kudos for taking a calculated risk by entrusting Brubaker to tell the story, who did so rather satisfyingly when judged on its own merits.
