Joe Quesada Day in Orange County, FL

Daredevil #1 cover by Quesada

Congratulations to Joe Quesada, Marvel’s Editor-In-Chief. The mayor of Orange County declared March 8, 2008, as Joe Quesada Day, recognizing his accomplishments in comics.

We can argue about the individual stories that Marvel’s put out over the years, but Quesada has been the most open high-ranking comics exec over the last decade. And I’ve found out first-hand that he’s a genuinely nice guy. Last year, when I was suffering with my hip problem, I commented about it on a Newsarama thread. I received a personal message from Quesada wishing me well. It was a bright spot during a lousy day.

Congratulations to a classy guy!
