If I were Zack, I'd hire Chuck as a mentor and consultant. Something close to an editor, who would take Zack's basic skills and help him to grow into his potential.I'd heard that Dixon was working with YBZ and if anything that can only make his final product better. Shame on the big 2 not wanting to take advantage of that man's skills [Talking about Dixon FYI] because the man certainly knows how to tell an interesting story. Aside from Bane Conquest, which I found a bit confusing and wasn't sure where it fit in current DC continuity, I can't say I've ever read a Dixon story that was bad. Even hardcore lefties in comics know the man can write.
The thing about all of this is, Zack needs to be the writer of his comics. People are backing his books for him, Zack the idea man and Zack the writer. That's why he's able to pull in $200K per month. The less RCM per comic, the less money it'll end up making. His fans are investing in HIM.
