Apparently someone asked Tom Brevoort why he hired a writer who admits to having never read an X-Men comic before to write X-Men, and his reply basically (in not so few words) said to shut-up and come back when you get something published
*finishes hammering out that novel*
I do wonder, though. If Gischler has never read the X-Men before and he's leading off with a story that's got most X-Men fans disinterested, how well could this possibly go? This sounds like Jodi Picoult's Wonder Woman run all over again, except Gischler has at least written one or two comic before.
