Thought it was fair to point out that:

1) Priest DID NOT WANT to do Panther originally (the intro to "The Client" TPB said he had originally wanted to do Daredevil)

2) We don't know if Priest WOULD WANT to do Panther again, and

3) With his current blog postings, we don't know if Priest would want to do comics today without doing the things he does that we love but don't sell.

I believe we have, with Priests 47 BP issues (or 60 issues, depending how you count, substracting the two fill-in issues either way), one of the BEST RUNS of ANY comic during the turn of the century (at least \:\) ). And as Thomas Wolfe says, blah, blah......After all, Byrne has talked about how he couldn't ever return to the FF, and Waid/Garney did not live up to their own standards during their second Captain America run.

So, perhaps, it might be better, after at least TWO YEARS of this strain of dialogue on this board ("Hate Reggie Panther---We want Priest back on Panther," "Bring Priest back," etc.), to talk about OTHER writers we might want to see write T'Challa's post-Hudlin adventures---writers who are good AND would sell.

Hey! Here's an idea! Maybe we should buy as many McDuffie FFs as possible, and lobby (with our DOLLARS) for HIM to be the post-Hudlin BP writer!

Just sayin'.......
