So Tom's up with his marching orders. A quick perusal and some quick overall thoughts:
Sean, not sure if Byrne shut the door completely, can't quite read that, but we need to move forward with Pelletier. (From the feedback, it sounds like Byrne doesn't care for the way you treated him. I think that's fixable, but you've got a ton on your plate, so I understand if this gets bumped.)
On exclusives: I have no problem letting Fraction continuing his ALREADY-ESTABLISHED creator owned projects that are out there. It's the new workload above and beyond current capacity that is my concern on him getting Amazing out on time. The Vaughn feedback is a concern.
On the comic book pack-ins with the FF movie: since this is a decision made by FOX, I think it's worth the discussion to have, with an understanding of the bottom line on both parts. I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility, but if it looks like it would be too cumbersome on our end and would end up losing us $$$, obviously, it's a no go.
I'd walk softly on the TPB subscriptions. We don't want to alienate our bookstore partners on this.
Watch that red flag on the back-to-back crossovers. I think we need to pay some heed to the VP on that one.
Philip, run with the Black Panther inclusion!
Sean, while we're getting the thumbs down for inclusion in DVD packages for the Spider-Man film release, here's a wild thought - what about a spinner rack of our mainstream, all ages titles, in partnership with Best Buy? Think X-Men, Fantastic Four, Hulk, Spider-Man, Runaways in a small rack alongside a specially created DVD display that could show the gamut of Marvel flicks!
Here comes Big Money. We knew that was on the way.
In my case, I've articulated above on keeping Fraction plugged in. Fan reax has been positive, and I think he's going to ignite some momentum on Amazing.
