Joe Quesada Reaffirmed at Marvel

This press release from Marvel talking about a contract renewal for Joe Quesada and an additional position for the man will probably be unpacked via an interview at Newsarama or another site that has a direct relationship with Marvel's editorial point man. For my part, I'll tell you I think it's a good idea and the announcement at a good time. Marvel is being hit by the first wave in what should be a sustained assault of 24-36 months on its traditional direct market dominance by rival DC Comics; it makes sense for the top spot to be secure in order to better negotiate choppy waters ahead, and I've never sensed that the mainstream creative community has lost any desire to work with Quesada.

I'm playing fast and loose with publication times here, please forgive me.
