Starlin had disputes with them about THANOS around the time of Marvel THE END and the Thanos ongoing and Starlin left.

Marvel eventually sweet talks him back and now years later the bridge is burned again.

With due respect to Marvel, you really need to stop alienating classic talent like Starlin and Layton.

He was also screwed over in the 90s by Marvel, and the 80s by DC.

As I stated above... or maybe below... he told me at a show that his then new autobiographical/art book described why he would never work for Marvel again.

I didn't buy the book since it was expensive, and I short on funds at the time. It has since sky-rocketed in price.

Anyway in a recent interview, he said he thought the change in editorial staff would fix the problem, but it hasn't. I wonder if it is systemic, or connected Quesada... who I believe still has contact with Brevoort.

That is just wondering, though. Of course the pattern is something to notice, even if it is just Marvel's bad choices as a company... which is the most likely culprit.
