Phew. Looks like Fraction's staying. Thank Odin.

Actually, this is just a Matt Fraction clone that Reed Richards built for us.

It's later going to go crazy and kill one of the editors over at Big Money, which will seriously tip public opinion in their favor.

And later Patrick will split Clatt Claction's head in half in a big splash page.

Well, it's not Patrick's fault that Sean had to fire one of us. And even if it were, why should his creative teams suffer? Fraction is a great choice for Spider-Man, so why should I replace him?

That Brubaker post last night made me nervous. It looked like you wanted to hand Brubaker ASM...

Obviously, not the case. Glad to see he's staying. Please do whatever it takes to keep him!

(yes, I know this is just a sim, but Fraction on ASM is soooo perfect. hear that, Tom? PERFECT)

I don't think Brubaker would be a perfect fit for Spider-Man. Besides, he's overworked as it is.
