Jumping between meetings at the moment but I want to drop some solid things to let you guys get rolling. Please excuse anything that might sound overly curt...
I want to group lines under one editor, so that they can ensure that A) the characters don't have complete transformations from one book to the next but also B) that the tone/theme of each book is unique. Amazing and Spectacular, for example, should NOT read like the same book
Mike -- I want to put you on X-Men and Wolverine. You seem to have the best handle on the X-line (not knowing Patrick's fortes) and these should at least retain their current numbers.
Phil -- I want you on She-Hulk and FF. She-Hulk especially needs to be handled carefully, so I want someone here who knows who/what/where she is.
Pat -- I want you on the two Spidey books. Mainly because I have an idea of where I wanted Mike and Phil already. :)
Quick clarification on my earlier note about creators, too. I'm not adverse to name creators, BTW. Just pointing out that there is other talent out there and could (potentially) help out on your budgets. If you have to pay a boatload to keep Stracynski on Amazing, for example, maybe you could offset that a bit by putting a Brock Rizy or a Les McClaine on art duties.
I'm not adverse to crossovers, I'll also note, but I haven't yet had a chance to read your Defenders thing, Phil.
