Where Does Marvel Stand on Their Classic Universe? Apparently Very Far Away

Writer/artist Steve Rude says that talks with Marvel Comics for him to work on a new, monthly title have broken down and that "it will not be happening." According to Rude, "As many of you know, being an artist who grew up in the 60ís, what I had offered Marvel was a return to older sentiments - something I believe lost to them for many decades now. Think back to the often-reprinted compilations, when Marvel was still in its infancy and run by a small office staff in the middle of Manhattan. Much like 'the little engine that could', and despite rates that barely rose above todayís minimum wages, we readers were treated to something almost unknown to todayís gimmick-riddled audience; people that delivered and books that shipped on time. Sadly, when once little companies become big corporations, returning to the practices of their once humble origins becomes logistically impossible. While Iím certain that there are still many good, forward-minded people at Marvel who still believe in a return to simpler roots, in my case, whatever faction of their current staff may have sided with my offer, they were not enough." It wasnít made clear just who at Marvel he was negotiating with. Rude says that his next project will be new Nexus material, as well as Dark Horse reprinting the recent newspaper strip serial he self-published. Rob Liefeld is also done with Marvel for the moment. His last Marvel work will be a variant cover for Deadpool #1. Liefeld says heís taking a break from doing interior work and covers. He had hinted that he was going to pursue legal action against the company due to undefined "shady practices" but didnít reveal any information on what he was talking about.
