I always recognized, from day one, that no one has ever retired from Marvel Comics. You’re there, they pay you for a little while, and then they fire you. That’s your future: getting fired by Marvel Comics. There is no gold watch, there is no retirement package, and there is no dinner where they usher you off in the golden age of your life. They go ‘Well, you’re not selling comics anymore for us, buddy. Goodbye, now go away.’
