ferguson rly teaches a lesson in the lengths police will go to protect each other and white supremacy. they’d rather do all this than arrest one man.
because he is a cop, and he’s white.
they ‘have each other’s backs’ so doggedly and determinedly that they would sacrifice a town of black people for one white cop

I didn’t really have a lot of bad parts about writing Deadpool!
I had two great editors, Mike Marts and Mike Raicht, who were talented and supportive. I had a dynamite art team with Alvin Lee and Udon Studios, whom I am still friends with today, and Marvel was VERY supportive.
It was a dream first assignment. It’s hard to believe, but Deadpool was in danger of being canceled and it was Joe Quesada himself who reached out to me, a complete newbie, to pitch for the book. My pitch won over some big industry names, miraculously, and the editors absolutely could not have been more supportive.
And I was very happy that our run was a huge critical and commercial success and many, many people from Marvel have told me it was a big part of the resurgence of Wade’s popularity.
The one sad note was when they decided to kill Deadpool. My understanding is it had nothing to sales or anything like that, it was a bit of a random choice by Bill Jemas based on him being angry at Deadpool’s creator or some such thing. It was baffling.
I knew it wouldn’t last, so I deliberately wrote the story so that ANYONE who read it could bring him back easily. Cheeky, perhaps, but this was so clearly a goofy idea that I knew it wouldn’t last.
That’s about it. After the original editors left, we got a new guy who wasn’t great with humor, he didn’t care for my approach at all and I had a hard time explaining funny to him. So I did leave, amicably, and the book really struggled for a while until much later.
I have zero bad memories of Deadpool, Marvel was great to me and I had the best time!
